I did see that page & video earlier today. The biggest difference between the two devices is the USB OTG cable. I think it would be easier to get working with a full sized USB port bypassing the need for a cable. The only thing I can think is that either the cable I'm using or Bluetooth adapter aren't compatible.
Neither that I'm using is the same as the ones listed on the page, so that's possibly the problem. I may need to just break down and buy the ones listed. I'm not sure that a generic Bluetooth adapter will work even if it's the proper chipset. I have tried two different ones and neither has worked.
Okay, I've figured it out and have a working Bluetooth adapter on the 70 G2. I initially ordered a USB OTG cable and generic bluetooth dongle based on the CSR chipset. I tried plugging it in and it wouldn't recognize it. I'd unplug it and plug in a USB thumb drive and it would recognize that.
I finally broke down and bought the Daffodil dongle and tried it tonight. I plugged it in and nothing. I figured it might be the USB cable. I turned off the device and left the cable plugged in. Once I rebooted it, the adapter was recognized. I turned on Bluetooth and it worked great!
I then tried my original dongle and that one worked too but ONLY if it's plugged in when I turn the unit on. The unit will NOT recognize the Bluetooth adapter on the fly. At least it wouldn't on mine. I hope this helps someone else who may be having the same problem.
And a big thanks to the OP and creator of the firmware who managed to take a tablet I bought and stuck in a drawer something useful now that it has Bluetooth!

Actually, the BT dongle support only works when it's plugged in at boot time here as well, I'll mention that for the other firmwares featuring BT support.
Glad you got it working

May be there is no bluetooth support in this firmware…
