    Hi i am currently using apples magic mouse for my ipad with BTStack mouse (downloaded from cydia). Was working fine for the first day....but now whenever i click on the BTStack mouse program and turn on my mouse, it cant seem to find it....dont know if this has something to do with my bluetooth maybe? cos when i go to settings/general/bluetooth, i cant switch the option on or off, since the switch is greyed out. I have a 'BTStack' option on the side menu of my settings (might be for my apple dock keyboard? i dunno), there are a couple options for 'no bluetooth', 'IOS Something', and another option, does it have something to do with this? i use a dock apple keyboard if that changes anything. Really hope someone can help...ive only had it working for one day, and i wanna start doing some work from home with easier use via the mouse. Thanks alot guys! - Kes

    Btstack is not the problem. Make sure the mouse is in pairing mode. You have to pair every time you connect.
    I usually have to turn my mouse on and off a few times. And make sure it isn't connecting to other computers nearby! :)

    That's done on the mouse. Look at the instructions for your mouse. I have a targus bluetooth mouse, not the magic mouse so I don't know how to put it into pairing mode.

    Hello, Mike Bishop here. I tried finding BTStack mouse on Cydia, and it does not seem to be there.

    Where is it?

    It's certainly in there (BigBoss repo) if you simply start a search for "bt"... See pic.

    Question about mouse and keyboard function... I'm using the iPad 2

    With the keyboard in the pairing mode, when I open up btstack keyboard, it often freezes when searching. The mouse app does the same thing.
    Also, the mouse, after connecting, slows down and eventually stops.

    Is there any way to improve the function of these programs? Please help...

    Thanks!
