and __hci_cmd_sync_ev is also not working for you? However since you are not waiting for the vendor event anyway and just injecting cmd_complete, I wonder whatâs the difference in just using __hci_cmd_send and not bothering to wait or inject at all. I am failing to see where this injection makes a difference.
For me it is a big difference if we are injecting one event like in the case of Intel compared to injecting one for every command. It will show a wrong picture in btmon and that is a bad idea.
