Using pHAT for dual Bluetooth on RPi3


I just tried the pHAT on an RPi 3, but rather than adding a new HCI device, it completely stops the old one from starting.

I’ve updated the EEPROM, and have a clean Raspbian build with all the latest updates.

Should this work?


Hi marcosscriven,

I am also looking for this answer. See my post: Raspberry Pi 3 Compatibility With RedBear IoT pHAT


@darkcmder - I saw your post, but that seemed to be concerned with WLAN, not Bluetooth?


@marcosscriven - I thought it was a similar issue with the Bluetooth as well. I’ll fire mine up and down a few times tonight and confirm tomorrow.
