A longstanding issue for folks using AOSP/stock android ROMs has been the use of an outdated AVCRP bluetooth stack (specifically, BlueZ v1.0) which provides remote control function but carries with it no metadata. Those with newer cars are AVCRP v1.3 compatible but Google has not updated the bluetooth stack accordingly (iOS 5.0 and above have this).

Can somebody confirm whether AOKP (e.g. the newest release from today) utilizes the latest AVCRP v1.3 or high BT stack?

As a side-note the iPhone somehow can communicate via USB and send the medidata as well - I'm not sure how this works, but I'm wondering if this protocol is provided for in AOKP (since it's clearlly not in stock).

Android 4.2 does not support AVRCP 1.3

AOKP supported it until 4.1.2, but with 4.2 Google changed the bluetooth stack.

Any idea what bluetooth stack is used on stock/AOSP 4.2 and why they changed it? Any reason why AOKP isn't able to support a stack utilizing v1.3?

The Bluetooth stack was contributed by Broadcom and Google implemented it. Why? Ask Google.

And for you second question I only have one answer: Are you serious?

So I imagine I know the answer to this question, but is this why the bluetooth radio in my car now works terribly with my phone?
