Changing HTC Shift integrated BD_ADDR

There's a great tool called bdaddr that allows you to change the BD_ADDR, the physical address, in your Bluetooth adapter. It works with Ericcson, Cambridge Silicon Radio and Zeevo chipsets.

I'm glad to know that the HTC Shift comes with a CSR integrated chipset, so i'm able to change its BD_ADDR.

After changing the address, you need to turn the hci0 interface down and sometimes even plug the dongle out and in again so changes are applied.

You can get the code of bdaddr here and you can find the tool ready to Make here, since it's not included in the last bluez-utils package shipped with Ubuntu.
