For a few months now, I have face a problem when trying to send files from a Google Nexus 4 smartphone to my iMac.
I was able to pair the nexus with iMac and it was ok to send files from iMac to nexus.
The problem was on the other way around, i.e, when sending files from nexus to iMac it always come up with an error. And the strange thing is that in iMac bluetooth preferences, the device (nexus 4) was connected only for 2 seconds and then disconnected again.
Before I present the solution in the “pandora box”, let me put up the specs we are dealing here:
Google Nexus 4
Android v 4.2.2
Kernel v 3.4.0-perf-g7ce11cd
Mac Os X Lion v 10.7.5
Well, after digging a lot in google and going trough a lot of complaints about bluetooth issues regarding Google nexus 4, I found a simple ridiculous 3 steps solution.
- In iMac open bluetooth preferences
- Go to sharing setup
- Enable bluetooth sharing and voilá!
