Bad BLE link between the Phone and the device

It can sometimes happen that the phone have a broken link, it is in this case recommended to users to go to their phone settings and manually Forget the Nano X. There is at the moment no other ways: there is no programmatic way to unpair a bonded device but you can however have a button that opens that phone settings Bluetooth section.

undefined is not a function(evaluating '\_iterator[typeof Symbol === "function"?Symbol.iterator:"@@iterator"]()')

Read again our Pre-requisites, you must set up jsc-android, alternatively you can figure out what polyfills are required. https://github.com/facebook/react-native/issues/15902

Minimal getting started

@ledgerhq/react-native-hw-transport-ble works like any of our @ledgerhq/hw-transport libraries.

The difference here is that the listen() is costy and you likely don't want to always scan for devices, you would better save a selected device as "known" to suggest it to user later.

Important: you will also have to deal with specifics of Bluetooth BLE, for instance, you need to request the LOCATION permission on Android!

Here is a gist of the most important parts required.

Check for Bluetooth state

import TransportBLE from "@ledgerhq/react-native-hw-transport-ble";
 
const subscription = TransportBLE.observeState({
  next: e => syncWithUI(e.available),
  complete: () => {},
  error: () => {}
});

when Bluetooth is available we can continue to...

Scan for devices

const subscription = TransportBLE.listen({
  complete: () => {
    this.setState({ refreshing: false });
  },
  next: e => {
    if (e.type === "add") {
      const device = e.descriptor;
      addDeviceToTheUI(device);
    }
  },
  error: error => {
    this.setState({ error, refreshing: false });
  }
});
 
// NB we also recommend the use of RxJS, you can just wrap it like so:
// Observable.create(TransportBLE.listen).subscribe({ ... })
// In the future of ledgerjs, we might directly returns Observable.

This is the basic idea, obviously you need to call this code in your logic and implement addDeviceToTheUI(device).

In that device object, you can typically use two fields:

  • device.id: a unique identifier of the device that can later be given to TransportBLE.open(id)
  • device.name: the name of the device (e.g. NanoX A4F5)

With this device we can now...

Connect to known device

const transport = await TransportBLE.open(device);
// OR
const transport = await TransportBLE.open(deviceId); // deviceId can come from persisted state. It's unique per device

and now we can just use the transport like any other Ledger transport!

Examples

import BluetoothTransport from "@ledgerhq/react-native-hw-transport-ble";

exchange

communicate with a BLE transport
