Of course not. This method (with gsmbluetoothfile) uses direct PCM
connection between WM8753 and the bluetooth chip, almost nothing to do
with alsa (except that it is used to set correct rate for the BT DAI).

Quite possibly you have the same problem i had with one of the
headsets i tested, the symptoms are: everything works except for the
sound transfer. Currently i have no other ideas except disabling eSCO
support in kernel and bluez (probably it's even a bug in the firmware
of the chip we use), but i haven't tried it yet as i don't have access
to that non-working headset currently.

Be free, use free (http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html) software!
