WOW - That 's what I would like to have also. I spent days to get Bluetooth working on a Cubietruck. It turned out to be hell on earth for me.
I suggest to study how it can be done with Raspian on the Raspberry PI.
There is a lot of information out there. Google keywords "Raspian linux bluetootht Cubieboard aso) I assume it needs to be done via command line.
t(w)o be(ers) or not t(w)o be(ers) that is the question

Well its not as easy as i thougt..
I could build and install bluez, but when i try to start bluetoothctl it gets stuck and when i abort with ctrl+c i get the following error:
Code: [Select]
[bluetooth]#
process 6321: arguments to dbus_connection_unref() were incorrect, assertion "connection != NULL" failed in file dbus-connection.c line 2821.
This is normally a bug in some application using the D-Bus library.
  D-Bus not built with -rdynamic so unable to print a backtrace
Aborted

I guess i have to try a little more..

EDIT:
Okay after manually starting dbus (sudo /usr/local/etc/init.d/dbus start) bluetoothctl doesn't give an error anymore, but its till stuck.. I have read that this is properly because bleutootd is not running..
The problem is: how do i get it runnign?

I get this (on corepure64):
Code: [Select]
$ sudo /usr/local/lib/bluetooth/bluetoothd -n
bluetoothd[30609]: Bluetooth daemon 5.28
bluetoothd[30609]: Starting SDP server
bluetoothd[30609]: Bluetooth management interface 1.10 initialized
bluetoothd[30609]: Endpoint registered: sender=:1.67 path=/MediaEndpoint/A2DPSource
bluetoothd[30609]: Endpoint registered: sender=:1.67 path=/MediaEndpoint/A2DPSink

If you use "bluetoothd -nd" you'll get verbose output, which might help

If bluetoothd didn't exit it might be OK - did you try to pair with something?

Code: [Select]
start-stop-daemon: can't execute '/usr/local/libexec/bluetooth/bluetoothd': Permission denied

Did you start/stop bluetoothd as root?

I took the init.d script from the x86_64 bluez plugin and modified it a bit.. (only the path of bluetoothd really)

Code: [Select]
tc@Wohnzimmer:~$ sudo cat /usr/local/etc/init.d/bluez-5.37
#!/bin/sh

start() {
  if [ ! -f /var/run/dbus/bluez_flag ]; then
    /usr/local/etc/init.d/dbus restart
    touch /var/run/dbus/bluez_flag
  fi
  if ! pidof bluetoothd >/dev/null; then
    start-stop-daemon --start --exec /usr/local/libexec/bluetooth/bluetoothd & 2>/dev/null
  fi
}

stop() {
  start-stop-daemon --stop --exec /usr/local/libexec/bluetooth/bluetoothd 2>/dev/null
  sleep 2
}

status() {
  if pidof bluetoothd >/dev/null; then
    echo -e "\nbluetoothd is running.\n"
    exit 0
  else
    echo -e "\nbluetoothd is not running.\n"
    exit 1
  fi
}

case $1 in
  start) start
    ;;
  stop) stop
    ;;
  status) status
    ;;
  restart) stop; start
    ;;
  *) echo -e "\n$0 [start|stop|restart|status]\n"
    ;;
esac

I tried some commands to start it manually:
Code: [Select]
tc@Wohnzimmer:~$ /usr/local/etc/init.d/bluez-5.37 start
-sh: /usr/local/etc/init.d/bluez-5.37: Permission denied
tc@Wohnzimmer:~$ sudo /usr/local/etc/init.d/bluez-5.37 start
sudo: /usr/local/etc/init.d/bluez-5.37: command not found
tc@Wohnzimmer:~$ sudo sh /usr/local/etc/init.d/bluez-5.37 start
tc@Wohnzimmer:~$ start-stop-daemon: can't execute '/usr/local/libexec/bluetooth/bluetoothd': Permission denied

I am used to debian so i wanted to use service but its not aviable on tinycore so whats the right way to start a init.d script manually?

Also the permissions if it helps:
Code: [Select]
tc@Wohnzimmer:~$ ls -lsa /usr/local/libexec/bluetooth/
total 0
     0 drwxr-xr-x    2 tc       staff           80 Jan 15 20:45 ./
     0 drwxr-xr-x    4 tc       staff          120 Jan 15 20:44 ../
     0 lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            61 Jan 15 21:00 bluetoothd -> /tmp/tcloop/bluez-5.37/usr/local/libexec/bluetooth/bluetoothd
     0 lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            56 Jan 15 21:00 obexd -> /tmp/tcloop/bluez-5.37/usr/local/libexec/bluetooth/obexd

The command should be:
Code: [Select]
$ sudo /usr/local/etc/init.d/bluez start..and you can also use the control panel services gui

It looks like you have a typo somewhere?
