I tried it, it works fine there's no 404, the problem might be duo to their network or something

Worked great for me despite the outdated flag. Has turned this kernel log:

Following that, bluetooth A2DP has been rolling flawlessly for hours, while I couldn't hear two songs without bluetooth dropping out before. Thanks a lot!

This package tries to install a range of bcm firmware packages. I only needed the bcm20702a1 package - the other, later 4X-series ones, were already installed. However, if any of the packages are already present in /lib/firmware/brcm/, the installation fails. By manually commenting out the other firmware packages, such that I was left with pkgname=('bcm20702a1-firmware') only on line 5 of PKGBUILD, everything worked.

Perhaps a protection against partially-installed packages should be added?

(many thanks, this was exactly what I needed to get my headset microphone working with an old bt adapter, by the way!)

Sounds like this problem? https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-firmware/+bug/1859223

I don't get HSP working. I have a BCM20702A0 based chip (Dell Latitude E6430 integrated USB Bluetooth adapter, USB ID 413c:8197). I don't know if a firmware would change anything with my problem. I fetched the driver package from Dell, unpacked it and found a lot of BCM20702A0.*.hex files, similar to those in Asus's package.

To adapt your package to my needs I assume I'd need to put my hex files where the PKGBUILD would expect them. But in filelist.txt there are USB IDs at the beginning of each line, and my USB ID is already present for a BCM20702A1 hex file. I cannot see how the IDs and the filenames relate to each other. Is there some kind of secret knowledge? Try and error? Or don't I need those firmware files anymore because the A0 chip is supported by the kernel or linux-firmware package while the A1 and B0 chips are not? At least, neither HFP nur HSP work at the moment.

@Carlosgrr, its flagged because the PKGBUILD URL 404s sometimes. @ludwhe's link to https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/wireless/USB-BT400/DR_USB_BT400_${pkgver}_Windows.zip is the current working URL and is also where the ASUS driver download webpage redirects to.

Carlosgrr commented on 2020-11-08 13:37

I don't know the reason why this package was flagged as outdated, but I just tested my P8Z77-v Deluxe, (BCM20702A1) and the PKGBUILD worked perfectly. Kernel 5.9.6-arch1-1.

With latest kernel versions (starting from 5.9) have you experienced issues connecting Bluetooth devices?

Also enables ID 0a5c:216c Broadcom Corp. BCM43142A0 Bluetooth Device (HP) . Thank you.

Hello @Sonic-Y3k, ASUS seem to have updated their CDN address to use HTTPS. To avoid a 404 when trying to download the driver from their website, can you use the new https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/wireless/USB-BT400/DR_USB_BT400_${pkgver}_Windows.zip link? Thank you for maintaining this package!
