comment NXT Bluetooth “Failed!” when turning on
No, the button located under the battery pack is there to make the brick know that it is powered by a rechargeable battery pack. The battery pack has a pin that presses this button, this changes the battery charge level voltage thresholds to adapt to different technology.

comment Why does LEGO now use studless technic designs?
I don't see any other part left that needs to be updated from even to odd: The studded frames (4x4, 4x6, 6x8) have so far given only the 5x7 studless frame (the 5x11 can be considered as a derivative of 5x7). Bigger frames would be nice to fit in PF motors...
