  is_open=`dumpsys window windows | grep -E 'mCurrentFocus|mFocusedApp' | grep 'com.android.settings/com.android.settings.bluetooth.RequestPermissionHelperActivity'|wc -l`
  if [ $is_open = 0 ]; then exit; fi
  sleep 1;
  input keyevent KEYCODE_DPAD_RIGHT;
  input keyevent KEYCODE_DPAD_RIGHT;
  input keyevent KEYCODE_ENTER;
  exit;
__EOF
