I can confirm using those firmware allowed me to have a working bluetooth on Debian testing.
 
Thank you for the pointers.

Do you mind to post the steps you did in order to have this working? (having those steps in the wiki ti would be even better Big Grin https://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/Pinebo..._Installer)

My bluetoothctl complains about 'No default controller available'

Thanks.

Done Smile It works fine if you just copy https://gitlab.manjaro.org/manjaro-arm/p...6-firmware to /lib/firmware/brcm/.

yes, sorry, correct. just copy all files from the manjaro firmware git to /lib/firmware/brcm/. apparently one or more of the other firmware files are needed.

I have been working on debian sid and can confirm this works their too.

this will be added to the installer, so it will be just a trivial history soon...

With a bit of trouble, have done this, works with bt keyboard, curiously icon vanishes (in dock, it is still there, just invisible)
You have to specifically tell it to connect, why would one bother to pair and type (quickly vanishing) verification key
and not want to connect???
No one here is (coyly) saying whether they followed the PKGBUILD instructions, renaming and all. ....I did
Also copied the hciattach from other package, but not the systemd stuff, too different
Thought I had broke it, wifi dropped, refused to reconnect, this logon slow to connect, 3 tries? but is working
And, just testing again, typed with bt keyboard, this line
#16
to be clear, you can just copy the firmware files as is to /lib/firmware/brcm/ and it will work.
