I cannot enable bluetooth. When pressing the bluetooth icon in Settings, it just starts blinking without connecting, and when I go to System settings -> Bluetoot it says "Bluetooth not available.

bash-4.2$ devel-su
bash-4.2# systemctl restart bluetooth.service

Failed to issue method call: Unit bluetooth.service failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status bluetooth.service' for details.

I also tried this command:

bash-4.2# find | grep bluetooth.service
bash-4.2#

but gave no entries.

How to enable bluetooth without resetting the device?

try to reinstall original bluez package (as root)

zypper install --force bluez-4.101-1.1.1.armv7hl

if asked about libraries, choose "1" as option

reboot once done

You may need to install zypper before this

pkcon install zypper

It seems that customized bluez package from openrepos breaks the bluetooth.

To fix, reinstall original bluez package as root:

bash-4.2#zypper install --force bluez-4.101-1.1.1.armv7hl

If asked about libraries, choose "1" as option.

Reboot.

Which openrepos apps or libs install such packages that break system functionalities?

It is bluez and bluez-libs by NielDK from Openrepos.net. Those packages are removed now anyway.
