The bcm20702a1-firmware package now includes this firmware, so as I see things this package is now redundant.

Each file needs to be converted to the right name to be found for a particular device. See for example https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/PKGBUILD?h=bcm20702a1-firmware, https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/PKGBUILD?h=bcm4350-firmware and http://www.slackwiki.com/Btfirmware-nonfree

how can you state it?

The 1709 file is for a different device.

sorry, I bad copied the file!
comparing checksum, it shows me they are different:

[mattia@arch-xps tmp]$ sha256sum BCM20702A1_001.002.014.1443.1572.hex
521f0fc5eacc119407a242ee9fd4affdc9704aa0192dfb32448f4b8bbccad2f7
[mattia@arch-xps tmp]$ sha256sum BCM20702A1_001.002.014.1483.1709.hex

The softpedia package appears to be newer but the firmware is unchanged.

nTia89 commented on 2016-08-28 07:39

seem to be a new version of the firmware.
I downloaded it from here: http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/BLUETOOTH/Broadcom/Broadcom-DW1560-Bluetooth-40-LE-Driver-1201713-for-Windows-10-64-bit.shtml

the version stops at: BCM20702A1_001.002.014.1483.1671

Some kernel versions looked for the one name, some look for the other. It's safer to include both.

Why we need to link BCM20702A1* to BCM20702A0* (I'm talking about the last line of PKGBUILD: ln -rs BCM20702A1-0a5c-216f.hcd BCM20702A0-0a5c-216f.hcd),
since kernel already looks for the BCM20702A1* one?
