Mac Address is of the form XX: Okay now we’re ready to attempt to mount the sdcard over bluetooth. And that brings with it a bunch of restrictions, rsync isn’t going to work here, just like it doesn’t work for any ftp service, bluetooth or otherwise. Now the really bad news for me when I went to git clone my repository into the mounted folder even as root the process only manager to pass the folder structure across before it died. The application has little documentation that I could find but, in my experience I just needed to start the application. Now the bad news.

XX Somewhere in the output you should see a listing that say “Service Name: And not knowing the working of git perhaps I could have known from the start that it wouldn’t work here either but alas I did not. XX, but all Xs are replaced with numbers of characters.
If you wanted as I did to actually mount the sdcard over bluetooth, you need to hit the command line. First thing is to verify that the debian system is paired with the phone.
You need to have obexfs installed.
Which should return your mac address and the name of the device. And you can copy things in and delete them. But I wanted a little more than just file transfer I wanted to actually be able to do the file transferring and updating of my files using git. I have been trying to get more and more of my obecfs directory into a version control system.
Debian — Details of package obexfs in stretch
Now the really bad news for obfxfs when I went to git clone my repository into the mounted folder even as root the process only manager to pass the folder obedfs across before it died. And that brings with it a bunch of restrictions, rsync isn’t going to work here, just like it doesn’t work for any ftp service, bluetooth or otherwise. Mac Address is of the form XX: Which brings me to my conclusion, that at the end of the day, we still really have an ftp service here.
I feel a bit like a man trying to walk to the moon at this point, but perhaps my journey will help someone else make their more obsxfs journey. I didn’t manage to get browsing the device working, but that’s probably just me.
Package: obexfs (0.11-2 and others)
Okay now we’re ready to attempt to mount the sdcard over bluetooth. If you’re just going to send a file or two obexxfs you I would recommend sticking with Bluetooth-Appletit is pretty easy to use and in my experience works easily for sending. This as it turns out can be accomplished with a little help from openobex obexfs spoiler: Now then, here’s the howto.
The application has little documentation that I could find but, in my experience I just needed to start the application. But I never made it that far. Then run sdptool browse XX: Following this quest, I wanted to be able to put my most important home files onto my phone in a git controlled manner so that I would have a copy there should I need it.
You need to be root or sudo to do these things. Note the Channel number, in my case it is obexs Likely because it was trying to do a file operation that isn’t supported by obexfs. Unfortunately, apparently pretty much all the documentation that is out there on the internet was documenting the way to do things with the bluetooth stack pre version 4, and version 4 obwxfs how a lot of things are done, it was confusing, although at times entertaining.
To start you need to have an application on your phone that is operating an obex ftp service. If you need to do some debugging I would recommend installing obexftp which had some more useful output for me. The simple reason behind this is that I use a few different computers and remembering what is where problem is really quite annoying.
XX -B30 bluetooth Now, the good news, you’ve mounted the phone! I can not recommend enabling the Security prompt as that caused problems for me later in the process. So what I really wanted was to be able to mount my phones sd card over bluetooth. Keep the mac address you’re doing to need that. Now the bad news. Having a bluetooth technique to do the file transferring seems like an ideal solution.
