Fix Samsung Galaxy with Xposed Loses Bluetooth Pairings after Reboot

Owners of Samsung Galaxy devices with Xposed Framework installed (it seems to effect all models, from Galaxy S6 to Galaxy A series) may encounter an issue where the device seems to “forget” Bluetooth pairings when the device is rebooted. Thus the user will need to re-pair Bluetooth devices. Its unknown exactly what causes this issue, but it appears to be ongoing as of this writing. There is a GitHub tracker for this issue.

To fix this issue involves a few apps which require root access to your device. If your Samsung Galaxy A device is not rooted, search Appuals for a Samsung Galaxy root guide.

Requirements

  1. Download the Fix Bluetooth.zip file to your computer and extract it.
  2. Now transfer the extracted folder to your Samsung Galaxy’s SD card.
  3. In the extracted folder on your SD card, you will see subfolders named Lib and Lib64.
  4. Inside those two subfolders, you need to copy the files libsecure_storage.so and libsecure_storage_jni.so to the Lib and Lib64 folders on your /System/Vendor/ directory. This is best achieved with a root file explorer like MiXplorer.
  5. Now open your build.prop file in a text editor on your phone, and add the following line to the bottom:
    ro.securestorage.support=false
  6. Reboot your Samsung Galaxy, and it should remember paired Bluetooth devices from now on.

You may need to delete all WiFi connections under Settings > WiFi, and re-enter their passwords. This is because the passwords are encrypted.
