Has anyone found a fix for this or happened to get a bluesmirf working with the android app? I just ordered a bluesmirf to use with the app and hope it wasn't a $40 mistake. The chip comes with 115k baud rate default, which should let it work with the 500 series, no problem. In the app, there is a setting for Create compatability, which I think changes baud rate somewhere. I would try this and see if it fixes it. Also, I heard CTS and RTS need to be shorted on the smirf (see schematic on hackingroomba page).
