Dear Cooking Hacks,

After I install ArduPi library on my Raspberry PI 3 buy using your tutorial : ... dge/#step3

I noticed that my Bluetooth icon becomes inactive after reboot of the RP3 and it say's "No Bluetooth adapter found" as shown in the following picture :
And now I am without Bluetooth.

Maybe the issue is here (Tutorial Step 3.2)
#map mini-UART to internal bluetooth an free-up main UART to handle CookingHacks modules

What can I do for make it back ?

Hello Raiza,
Yes, this is a know issue. We disconnect the mainUART from BLE and use it for handle Cooking Hacks modules. We recomende use a inexpensive external BLE dongle attached to USB port.
If you want go back to original BLE overlay pin for UART, you must edit as sudo /boot/config.txt and change it for your convenience:

# For more options and information see
# Some settings may impact device functionality. See link above for details

# uncomment if you get no picture on HDMI for a default "safe" mode

# uncomment this if your display has a black border of unused pixels visible
# and your display can output without overscan

# uncomment the following to adjust overscan. Use positive numbers if console
# goes off screen, and negative if there is too much border

# uncomment to force a console size. By default it will be display's size minus
# overscan.

# uncomment if hdmi display is not detected and composite is being output

# uncomment to force a specific HDMI mode (this will force VGA)

# uncomment to force a HDMI mode rather than DVI. This can make audio work in
# DMT (computer monitor) modes

# uncomment to increase signal to HDMI, if you have interference, blanking, or
# no display

# uncomment for composite PAL

#uncomment to overclock the arm. 700 MHz is the default.

# Uncomment some or all of these to enable the optional hardware interfaces

# Uncomment this to enable the lirc-rpi module

# Enable audio (loads snd_bcm2835)

# Activate if you want use internal Bluetooth over limited miniUART

# Map miniUART to internal bluetooth an free-up mainUART to handle CookingHacks modules

# Enable uart interface. Disable if you want use bluetooth

# Enable spi interface

# Enable i2c interface
