I'm experiencing issues when porting a working app based on the BLE HIDS examples from SDK13 to SDK14. I now basically rebuilt the application from the SDK14 hids keyboard example, but I had to make a few changes to get it working. My application uses a few timers. To get those running, I had to set APP_TIMER_CONFIG_USE_SCHEDULER to 0, otherwise I got the NRF_NO_MEM (0x004) error when starting the timers. I don't know if this break other things?

Now my app starts advertising (according to the log), but I can't see the device on the host it should connect to.

One of the main differences between my app and the examples is that m_advertsiing, m_gatt and m_hids are non-static because I decalre them in different files, so I had to slightly modify the definition code. Is this bad?

BTW this is on a custom board. I now also tried pulling the SWD connector and now the device at least shows up after a power cycle, but I can't connect to it. Needless to say I can't debug this :)

ok got a little step further. I overlooked the right setting for NRF_SDH_CLOCK_LF_XTAL_ACCURACY (using a Rigado BMD-350), now the device shows up but I still can't connect to it.

I alos made the m_advertising, m_gatt and m_hids static again and declare them like in the examples. But that didn't seem to make a difference.

I notice when I take the SDK14 hids keyboard example and upload it (to my custom board, but also to the DK), I see in the logs that it seems to quickly connect and disconnect again during advertising. ANyway I can connect to this example, so I guess I have to spot the differences between my code and the example code. Something must be differetn somewhere..

I'm not sure what is going on. If you get stuck, maybe you can share your complete project and I can test it here?

I'm afraid that's not going to be possible but thanks for the offer.
