In addition to the hcd files, the txt files have been modified. I manually edited mine and still cannot get a a2dp stream to play on either the Zero or B3. I continually get buffer under runs. With a btusb device it works correctly every time. Is the command in the .service file the most appropriate for streaming? All I get is choppy playback with onboard bt. Also with the B+, I needed to blacklist "btsdio" to get the BT device to be at hci0 which is quite helpful for pairing and such.

@suthernfriend good catch. I totally spaced that last time.

as @grimler noted. the hcd file checksums are out of date. in order to keep this from happening @blm768 should either

  • SKIP the checksum checks on the files downloaded from github or
  • specify the commit in the raw.githubuser[...].com url instead of the branch

while i'd prefer the second (otherwise the package should be named pi-bluetooth-git according to arch package guidelines)

A new BCM4345C0.hcd version was uploaded 10 days ago, please bump the package and update the hashsum

@Jkx I'm pretty new to udev rules, but the old rule looks like it was just reacting to the creation of the /dev/hci0 device, not creating it. I don't see that device on my Raspberry Pi, either, but the bluetoothctl utility is at least allowing me to pair with devices. Connecting seems to be another story, though...

@blm768, the package from github build without issues, and hciconfig seems to works fine, but the /dev/hci0 is still missing.

It's look like the udev rules is missing now.

@Jkx: hciconfig has been removed in recent versions of bluez-utils. After looking through the docs on the Gentoo wiki, I managed to put together a modified version of this package that seems to work on my Pi. See

Where is the hciconfig program ? The udev rules try to run it, but /usr/bin/hciconfig is missing.

I missed something ?

raspberry 3b with archlinuxarm-v7 os , install bluez bluez-utils and this aur, then systemctl start bluetooth brcm43438, bluetooth works !

Hello! Can you, please, explain, why are you using 921600 speed, while ( ) raspbian can use up to 3000000? Is it possible or I just don't understand something?
