Sorry about replying to myself, but I've got some extra info that might 

What I'm actually trying to do is use my phone as HID device (a remote 
basically). I can now get this to work if I use hidd as root. This is 
ofcoarse far from ideal, since I don't want to become root for something like 
this, every time I want to use my phone as remote. And after a while the 
phone will disconnect and try and reconnect if I push a button. This then 
fails, because connecting _from_ the phone never works, for anything. I have 
no idea how you can debug this, all the sites I found via google seem to 
state "it just works" and it probably does, for most.

Just wanted to share this.
