I hope someone can help here.

Having reflashed with shr, I've tried again with my freedom bluetooth 
keyboard (which does work under ubuntu).

According to 
this should work, but I have had no joy.

The pairing seemed to work, but the connect method for bluez4 uses a 
dbus method that doesn't appear to exist

from the wiki: "mdbus -s org.bluez /org/bluez/3207/hci0/dev_00_18_00_00_C2_37 org.bluez.Input.Connect"

available methods on my shr install:

root at om-gta02 ~ $ mdbus -s org.bluez 
[METHOD]    org.bluez.Device.CancelDiscovery()
[METHOD]    org.bluez.Device.Disconnect()
[METHOD]    org.bluez.Device.DiscoverServices( s:None )
[METHOD]    org.bluez.Device.GetProperties()
[METHOD]    org.bluez.Device.SetProperty( s:None, v:None )
[SIGNAL]    org.bluez.Device.DisconnectRequested()
[SIGNAL]    org.bluez.Device.PropertyChanged( s:None, v:None )

Trying to run connect:
root at om-gta02 ~ $ mdbus -s org.bluez 
/org/bluez/1397/hci0/dev_00_0B_0D_8A_35_62 org.bluez.Input.Connect
/org/bluez/1397/hci0/dev_00_0B_0D_8A_35_62: Connect failed: 

Any help would be appreciated. I have no idea what is going on and don't 
really know what to do next.
