Cannot detect VESC with built-in NRF24 from VESC Tool (Android)

Hello,

I have made a custom HW for my e-bike project, based on HW 6.4, with some minor modifications. The PCB has a built-in NRF24L01 IC, with an external 2.4GHz / 2dBi antenna connected.

If I type "hw_status" in the VESC tool terminal in Windows, it returns ​Permanent NRF found: Yes

So it looks like the controller can communicate with the NRF24 module. My problem is that I cannot connect to the VESC with my phone via BLE (the VESC doesn't appear in the list when scanning).

I tried setting the module in pairing mode from the VESC tool on Windows with no success. I also tried a BLE scanner app on my phone but couldn't find the VESC (no new device nearby after turning on the VESC)

 

Can someone help me with this issue?
