Does not show up in software update on Powerbook G4 !2" (Feb 2005) & Mac OS X 10.4.6 (8I127). Why?

It does not show up for people with Broadcom bluetooth chipsets. Stop wondering why it is not showing up. Run SW update if it is not there then you do not need it.

Click the More Information link here and the support.apple.com/downloads/Bluetooth_Firmware_Update_2_0_1 page specifically says: It installs on all Macintosh systems with Bluetooth based on the Broadcom chipset.

I was able to install the .dmg too, but it only left a firmware update app in my Utilities folder. The app won't start and just says "no firmware update needed". So I reckon if this update doesn't show up in Software Update, your system indeed doesn't need it.

There has to be a reason for this update ? My desktop Intel MacPro doesn't seem to need it. I get the message -" this computer does not need this update " It would be rather helpful if we knew why some of us don't need this Bluetooth update.

yea...this was a strange one...according to my computer i cannot install this update as it is not needed for my computer which i cannot figure why! either way according to other users this doesnt seem to fix the main problem which i was having...connection loss...in my case though this was between my phone & my mac...& it seems to have become more frequent after the 10.5.7 update sometime i need to restart to be able to reconnect with my phone...its really beginning to bug me

It really doesn't do what it promises, my mouse stopped responding 5 minutes before i posted this and i had to go through disconnecting it and reconnecting it to make it work again. I was so glad to see this release here, as i really have a big issue with my Mighty Mouse, but now i'm totally pissed off. Why release this, if it doesn't work?

Also needs Broadcom as the manufacturer. My PowerBook G4 FW800 has Cambridge Silicon chipset so this update is not for me and I believe yours is not too.

Tried it with my 15" titanium powerbook and D-Link USB adapter, but it says it's not needed. So, as someone else suggested, perhaps it depends on the version of adapter one has installed.
