    So I have jailbroken my iPad 2. I've purchased the Bluetooth keyboard and Bluetooth mouse apps, but I cannot get both of them to work simultaneously. Individually, each works without the other; however, together they do not work. I read somewhere that you need to first pair the keyboard then the mouse for some crazy reason. However, I have tried every combination possible. I still can't get both of them to work simultaneously. Ideas?

    Yes it is possible...I do it all the time, but as said before, need to start KB first.

    Settings>btStack ~ activate btStack first
    Then open bt keyboard and pair then bt mouse....
    Only issue I found was I had to reboot iPad after disconnecting...settings kept crashing.

    You need to DEACTIVATE the onboard BT before using the BTStack keyboard and mouse aps from Cydia. In
    Fact the BTStack for keyboard will turn the onboard off when activated.

    I'm really at a loss. Here is what I'm doing:
    1. Setting - Btstack> check the Btstack option rather than iOS or None;
    2. Open Keyboard Selector, and obviously, select Apple Wireless Keyboard,
    a. Testing it - it works just fine
    3. Open Mouse selector, and select and connect with my "Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000"
    4. It connects, but then the Keyboard stops working.
    Anything I'm missing? I'm completely obsessed with getting this working…. I'd appreciate ANY suggestions. Thanks!

    1. Settings> btstack>none
    2. Open bt keyboard>turn on bt keyboard so it shows up in list but DON'T tap to connect.
    3. Turn on bt mouse so it also shows up in list....as in attached pic...
    4. Tap keyboard and connect
    5. Close keyboard app
    6. Open bt mouse app and connect

    Now both should be "on" and ready for use....

    Hope this does the trick for you....

    But I have noticed @ times when going back into settings after disconnecting bt mouse & keyboard.....it will crash back to homescreen...so you may have to reboot.

    You seem to be doing the right thing. The only thing different is I use the Apple wireless keyboard and the Apple wireless mouse or the new mouse pad. I'm wondering if using the MS wireless is causing an interference with the Apple KB. It's too late right now, but I'll connect up in the a.m. With my Apple KB and use one of my BT other brand mouse product and test it that way and let you know.
