same issue .
I thought it was the kernel I flashed . but I flashed the clean ROM again and traced the problem. it appears right after I rooted the device . I tried rooting with CWM v5.3 and also CWM v5.5

now I have to live without rooting (for a while I hope) cause I like this ROM ICS 4.0.4.

Hi Anas... I have the same problem, but I only need to root to get a restore of some data from titanium backup. I got the data restored, and do not need the rooting any more... how DID you unroot? I really need the bluetooth!!

Thank you in advance

Getting the same error...bluetooth doesn't get on after rooting....fixed the black screen problem by not restoring the data thru titanium backup....just left it cleaned and did fresh installation of all apps....but still not getting any clue on Bluetooth... :(
