As a note, there are also this AUR package that contains all Broadcom bluetooth firmwares:

Maybe someone should email the packager or maintainer to draw attention to the comments here, as they seem to obviously not even read the stuff...

Especially about missing pkgname pointed out by Zjaume.

I have a ID 0b05:17cf ASUSTek Computer, Inc. BCM20702A0, which seems to use the BCM20702A1-0b05-17cf.hcd file on my system at moment.

Because according to the bcbtums-win8x64-brcm.inf file inside the source zip, it needs the BCM20702A1_001.002.014.1443.1469.hex file.

Which is same as im using now:

So not sure if this will cause a newer/better version in the bcm20702a0-firmware.

The bcm20702a0-firmware function is there in the PKGBUILD but it's not in pkgname list.

Thanks for package!

Just installed. It is 100% working. However, I am not sure if the lag (stretching of sound in headphones occasionally during listening to music) is because of the firmware or some other reasons.

@nTia89 @holgerob

The "installer" is an ordinary .NET application - the files are embedded as resources.

Extracting the resources is pretty simple (<10 lines of C#) but I don't know if there's an existing tool for this purpose.

Yes, you cannot install it directly. I tried unpack it unsuccessfully (both cabextract and innoextract failed). The right way was the one undertaken by @holgerob and since he confirmed the sameness of files.

I agree with you by unflagging the package since it works perfectly!

I have compared the contents of the new (20211215) and old (1201710) driver package. Since the new package unfortunately only contains a setup.exe and the firmware files are no longer directly available I had to install the package under Windows. The firmware files in the two packages are identical. There are some additional firmware files in the new driver package, but other firmware files from the old driver package are missing.

My suggestion would be to stay with the old driver package and remove the outdated flag

@nTia89 how do you install it on Linux ?

RogueGirl commented on 2022-06-06 06:08 (UTC)

since i don't have a bt400, i thought it's not a good idea for me to maintain this package since i can't test if it actually works i disowned this package so someone who owns this dongle can adopt this instead of me

There is a new updated version out in the wild thanks to Win 11!
