[SOLVED] bluetooth issues - ak42 - 11-11-2020

I was facing bluetooth issues with the latest manjaro phosh image.

bluetoothctl only displayed
No default controller available

dmesg would give the following error:
[   11.573943] Bluetooth: hci0: RTL: loading rtl_bt/rtl8723cs_xx_fw.bin
[   11.595217] Bluetooth: hci0: RTL: loading rtl_bt/rtl8723cs_xx_config-pinephone.bin
[   11.602883] bluetooth hci0: Direct firmware load for rtl_bt/rtl8723cs_xx_config-pinephone.bin failed with error -2

the file  rtl8723cs_xx_config-pinephone.bin was missing in /usr/lib/firmware/rtl_bt/
but there was a rtl8723cs_xx_config-pinebook.bin

I just copied it and renamed it as the required one, rebooted, and bluetooth worked.
Just sharing in case someone else faced the problem..
