Question Bluetooth page turner on Oasis?

Hello,

I have a jailbroken Kindle Oasis 10th generation (KO3) on firmware 5.14.2

I wanted to trying turning pages with a bluetooth device. On my kindle, in the settings it just says “Wireless” though I have seen from searching that others have Wireless & Bluetooth.

In Accessibility-> VoiceView Screen Reader there is “Bluetooth Devices” but it is greyed out.

I did notice that when choosing “Setup your kindle” with the phone app, the bluetooth logo appears at the top.

I normally use koreader for reading books.

I am wondering if I should upgrade the firmware to 5.16.2.1.1 and use LanguageBreak jailbreak?

Any help or guidance here would be appreciated.

Cheers!

Bluetooth on/off switch is among settings that are hidden until you register your Kindle onto Amazon account.

Probably because it's for listening to Audible (which need the Kindle registered) and not really great for voice-view or TTS.

Kindle (E-Ink-based) devices only support BT devices with an A2DP profile as an audio sink for audio streaming, nothing else.

Without kernel modification, your Kindle can't see/pair/listen to remote control, keyboard, etc.

It would be great if Amazon baked something like that into the Kindle world. I have a friend with health issues that loves this inelegant solution (but it works) -https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08T8CZYF3/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&th=1
