No Bluetooth adapters availible

Following the steps outlined in the link, I’m stuck at step 8.
When I run power on in bluetoothctl, I get No default controller available.

Consider this, please:

Essentially there’s a hardware bug with this chipset that sometimes causes bluetooth to fail, and it can be temporarily fixed by turning off the power, unplugging from the wall, waiting up to a minute, and then booting up again.


  • failed device over all distros…

worked fine for me! Somehow the modules werent loaded after kernel update.
