I'm so happy I found this package. The firmware from the website from the BT adapter wasn't working with 5.9 and 5.10. This firmware does. I don't have any connection issues.

I can confirm this works in 5.9.10

So I tried the Mpow firmware with linux 5.8 and got the same result. The device disconnects at random intervals. As with this firmware there were no error which conincide with the failure, the only errors listed were: Bluetooth: Unexpected continuation frame (len 21) Bluetooth: Unexpected continuation frame (len 22) Twelve minutes apart and not when the device disconnected ):

This also works for me with 5.9, but no better than it did with 5.8. The symptoms are that it disconnects from the device (bt speaker) at random intervals, often several hours, and refuses to reconnect. I have a second bt adapter which will still connect after the failure! The only errors I can find are; "bluetooth hci0: Direct firmware load for rtl_bt/rtl8761b_config.bin failed with error -2" and "Bluetooth: Unexpected continuation frame (len 12)" neither of which seem to coincide with the failure.

Hi @h8red, it also works for me. The latest working version with kernel 5.9 is 20200816. Just ignore the kernel message: bluetooth hci1: Direct firmware load for rtl_bt/rtl8761b_config.bin failed with error -2, this file is optional and not required.

Hi everybody, it's interesting but package from 2020-08-17 works fine for me on linux kernel 5.9.

Could be this bug: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=208965#c25

i.e., the two patches linked there may be needed. I hope they get pulled into mainline soon.

It's still not working with 5.9.2 -_-

andym commented on 2020-10-31 15:41

Anyone tried 5.9.2 yet?

I can confirm that it's not working with the 5.9 kernel on Manjaro either. It's loading the firmware [ 2084.393572] Bluetooth: hci1: RTL: examining hci_ver=0a hci_rev=000b lmp_ver=0a lmp_subver=8761 [ 2084.394387] Bluetooth: hci1: RTL: rom_version status=0 version=1 [ 2084.394390] Bluetooth: hci1: RTL: loading rtl_bt/rtl8761b_fw.bin [ 2084.394439] Bluetooth: hci1: RTL: loading rtl_bt/rtl8761b_config.bin [ 2084.394458] Bluetooth: hci1: RTL: cfg_sz 25, total sz 21389 [ 2084.593526] Bluetooth: hci1: RTL: fw version 0x0d99646b but it won't be recognised by any frontend bluetooth tool: $ blueman-adapters blueman-adapters version 2.1.3 starting blueman-adapters 18.01.00 ERROR Adapter:53 init : No adapter(s) found

I tried the support contact form on mpow's page. The CD that came with the stick says "up to kernel 4.13" (or so) and the download zip says "up to 5.3"
