Unfortunately cant comment here. I need to hide neighbours BT devices.
None of this worked on MacOS 12. It's an old OS so shouldn't be complicated. I look at the com.apple.Bluetooth.plist file every time I did the changes as per instructions but the issue is the section where is supposed to include the ignored list of addresses stays blank. So I even used PlistEdit and manually edited that file by following the format required and then copied the plist back to Preferences folder and changed back permissions all correct.
Once I enabled Bluetooth again, the file was overwritten in front of my eyes by the original file so the Ignored list became again empty.
I am wondering if I need to temporary turn off System Integrity Protection? Could this be the reason the file gets restored back?
Or am I supposed to do in this sequence:
- turn of bluetooth
- edit the file / change permissions correctly
- turn on bluetooth?
I spent quite a bit time with this so far, so before I continue fooling around even more, I need to ask if any of these additional steps are what would make sense to get the edited file to load.
That's what I am seeing regarding similar issues but not sure if this will work here.
