I have 2008.12 paired with my bt3030.  I had to install bluez-audio and 
bluez-util, restart bluetoothd and then run passkey-agent and then with the 
bt3030 in pairing mode, follow the steps from 
http://wiki.bluez.org/wiki/HOWTO/AudioDevices to connect to the bt3030.   A 
trivial attempt at a2dp seemed to work correctly.  Now if I can get the 
freerunner to do HSP with the bt3030 I'll be a happy camper...

 my /etc/asound.conf looks like:
# default dmix configuration

pcm.!default {
    type plug
    slave.pcm "dmix"

ctl.mixer0 {
    type hw
    card 0

pcm.bluetooth {
        type bluetooth
        device "XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX"
        profile "auto"

the sequence was something like:

~# opkg install bluez-audio blue-util

~# /etc/init.d/bluetooth stop

~# /etc/init.d/bluetooth start

~# passkey-agent --default 0000 &

~# dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=org.bluez /org/bluez \ 
org.bluez.Manager.ActivateService string:audio

~# dbus-send --system --type=method_call --print-reply \
--dest="org.bluez" /org/bluez/audio org.bluez.audio.Manager.CreateDevice \ 

where XX:XX:XX:XX;XX is the baddr of the bt3030. Then

~# dbus-send --system --type=method_call --print-reply \
--dest="org.bluez" "/org/bluez/audio/device0" org.bluez.audio.Sink.Connect

at that point I was able to do:

~# aplay -D bluetooth phone.wav

and get what sounded like a2dp on the bt3030.
