How to remove Flags when advertising as Connectable undirected (ADV_IND)


how to prevent ROM automatically adding Flags to the advertisement packet when advertising as connectable ("The Flags data type are added by the ROM")?

I am aware that this is not by the specs (there is similar question How to remove flags from advertisement packet but that one is for Non-connectable advertising), however there must be some way to have full control over the advertisement packet payload - which is possible using HCI.

Thank you,

Hi bojanpotocnik,

Hi bojanpotocnik,

Thanks for you question online. This is not possible for the connectable advertising, as the stack adds 3 bytes in the adverting string.

Thanks, PM_Dialog
