In fact you can activate bluetooth either via the settings app, or via dbus

dbus-send --system --dest=org.freesmartphone.odeviced --type=method_call
--print-reply  /org/freesmartphone/Device/PowerControl/Bluetooth
org.freesmartphone.Device.PowerControl.SetPower int32:1

Then if you have paired your headset, you should only need to power it up.

restarting the framework is needed only if you change the bt-headset-enabled
setting (and don't forget to power up the antenna from the settings/phone
app if you restart the service instead of rebooting).

It seems that if you have headset-enabled, you can't use your headset to
play music via intone (i've been facing the issue this morning). Did i do
something wrong?
