[XA 5.1] Android.Bluetooth.BluetoothAdapter.Enable is incorrectly marked as [Obsolete("deprecated")] for API level 20 and higher
## Current status of the APIs
As shown on  and , the `Enable()` and `Disable()` methods for BluetoothAdapter have been marked as [Obsolete("deprecated")] for API level 20 and higher starting in Xamarin.Android 5.1.
>  http://developer.xamarin.com/releases/android/xamarin.android_5/xamarin.android_5.1/level_20_diff/mono.android.dll/#Type_Changed_Android.Bluetooth.BluetoothAdapter
>  http://developer.xamarin.com/releases/android/xamarin.android_5/xamarin.android_5.1/level_21_diff/mono.android.dll/#Type_Changed_Android.Bluetooth.BluetoothAdapter
## Expected status of the APIs
Neither the `Enable()` nor `Disable()` method should be marked deprecated.
### Additional information
The `enable()`  and `disable()`  methods are _not_ marked deprecated in the Android API docs.
>  http://developer.android.com/reference/android/bluetooth/BluetoothAdapter.html#enable()
>  http://developer.android.com/reference/android/bluetooth/BluetoothAdapter.html#disable()
And if I'm not mis-understanding the output from `javap`, it looks the Java bytecode doesn't contain a "deprecated" annotation for either of these methods either.
> $ javap -public -v -classpath ~/Library/Developer/Xamarin/android-sdk-macosx/platforms/android-21/android.jar android.bluetooth.BluetoothAdapter
... compare some methods that _are_ deprecated:
> public boolean startLeScan(java.util.UUID, android.bluetooth.BluetoothAdapter$LeScanCallback);
> Deprecated: true
> public void stopLeScan(android.bluetooth.BluetoothAdapter$LeScanCallback);
> Deprecated: true
... against `enable()` and `disable()`:
> public boolean enable();
> public boolean disable();
## Version information
Xamarin.Android 188.8.131.52 (d23da36)
This is presumably a bug in jar2xml, and I'm not sure I want to fix.
The underlying bug will be fixed when we migrate to class-parse.
Also note that this issue isn't limited to BluetoothAdapter.enable(); it's present on *lots* of methods, e.g. Android.App.Service.OnStartCommand():
I have no idea how many methods are erroneously marked as deprecated, but it's clearly at least 2.
Thanks for the insight. Are you able to provide any more information then about when you think this issue will be fixed?
> when [do] you think this issue will be fixed?
The original plan was to work on class-parse integration for 5.1 and make it the default in 5.2.
That got punted to instead work on improving our MSBuild task speed and behavior, so that e.g. rebuilds with no changes should be faster.
So...lol. I have no idea.

Fixed in [master c90a67a]. So as...
I believe that c90a67a was reverted, and the fix needs to be re-thought.
Weird, it should NOT be reverted on that part. I'll check why those Obsolete attributes are back now.
Should be fixed after the migration to class-parse (commit 9d3be1d3).
I have checked this issue with latest C7 build:
xamarin.android-6.1.0-63_5eb9ddcb8cc975c6e866fc389a2524bcaa8c31fb. As per comment 7 , I am able to see the method on assemblies browser windows. Here is the screencast for the same: http://www.screencast.com/t/Ir4ryMfyv7Ev
Hence closing this issue.
