i have an ESP32 and i want to use deepsleep when it's not used. Before sending it to sleep i clean up everything, so disconnect, deinitialize and disable everything i build before. But i get a crash when i try to disable bluedroid. Does anyone have an idea why this happens?

void bt_deinit() {
    Serial.println("Deinit AVRC");
    if (esp_avrc_ct_deinit() != ESP_OK)
        Serial.write("Failed to deinit avrc");

    Serial.println("Deinit A2DP");
    if (esp_a2d_source_deinit() != ESP_OK)
        Serial.println("Failed to deinit a2dp");

    Serial.println("disable bluedroid");
    if (esp_bluedroid_disable() != ESP_OK)
        Serial.println("Failed to disable bluedroid");

    Serial.println("Deinit bluedroid");
    if (esp_bluedroid_deinit() != ESP_OK)
        Serial.println("Failed to deinit bluedroid");

    Serial.println("Stop BT");
    if (btStop() == false)
        Serial.println("Failed to stop bt");

it works fine if i just do not deinitialize everything and send him directly to sleep. But this is not the elegant way.

  • upvote for well presented question ... sadly I do not have the expertise to help you ..... perhaps something has not finished shutting down .... insert a delay before disabling bluedroid .... maybe it is the order of events ..... maybe stop first, then disable .... possibly the reverse order of the startup sequence

decoded backtrace in your question is missing, one of the choices to see stack trace is https://github.com/littleyoda/EspStackTraceDecoder

i dont know exactly if this is your case or not, but calling esp_ble_gap_stop_scanning() before esp_bluedroid_deinit() possibly avoids your crash.
