v18 LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0)
I was testing last day the Bluetooth device that i got inside my NUC. But it failt to work. Firstly i started BT service in settings, then check if it see any BT devices around, but there was just some message that BT device isn;t working.
I checked my dmesg and found this:[ 2.617136] usbcore: registered new interface driver btusb
[ 2.728921] Bluetooth: hci0: BCM: chip id 63
[ 2.729917] Bluetooth: hci0: BCM: features 0x07
[ 2.745934] Bluetooth: hci0: TV-Player
[ 2.746926] Bluetooth: hci0: BCM20702A1 (001.002.014) build 0000
[ 2.747354] bluetooth hci0: Direct firmware load for brcm/BCM20702A1-0489-e046.hcd failed with error -2
[ 2.747359] Bluetooth: hci0: BCM: Patch brcm/BCM20702A1-0489-e046.hcd not found

I have installed Broadcom WiFi+BT device, model BCM943228HMB inside Intel NUC. WiFi was working (but very unstable, which i didn't care because i use wire for LAN).
So the problem is, there is a lack of this BCM20702A1-0489-e046.hcd file inside modules i think.

I have found this file in here: https://github.com/winterheart/broadcom-...9-e046.hcd

Then i put this file in Downloads on nuc, and made few commands in shell:
# cp /storage/downloads/BCM20702A1-0489-e046.hcd /lib/firmware/brcm/
# modprobe -r btusb
# modprobe btusb

Then BT start to work, and module load correct firmware file. But after reboot file will not appear in this localisation. So i jut put those command in autostart.sh.
Could You put this firmware file somehow with other firmware files installed with LibreELEC?
I think default directory for those firmware files is /usr/lib/kernel-overlays/base/lib/firmware/brcm/ and they are linked into /lib/firmware/brcm/ .
But since /usr/lib/kernel-overlays/base/lib/firmware/brcm/ is read-only i can't just put file in there.
LibreELEC on Intel NUC DC3217IYE (click to find my uname, lsb_release, lspci, lsusb and dmesg info).
