PostPosted: Tue Mar 08, 2011 11:45 am    Post subject: [SOLVED] Bluetooth Atheros AR5BBU12 anyone? Reply with quote

The id of the device is: Bus 004 Device 002: ID 0489:e02c Foxconn / Hon Hai
I installed the firmware ath3k-1.fw and ath3k-2.fw into /lib/firmware and use kernel 2.6.38-git7

But the firmware fails always and the device does not come up;

[12800.735909] ath3k_load_firmware: Error in firmware loading err = -110,len = 64, size = 4096
[12800.735944] ath3k: probe of 4-3:1.0 failed with error -5

Is there any solution?

Best regards!

I am getting a similar error with my built-in USB Bluetooth Bus 002 Device 004: ID 0cf3:3002 Atheros Communications, Inc.

Code:

Bluetooth: Atheros AR30xx firmware driver ver 1.0
ath3k_load_firmware: Can't change to loading configuration err
ath3k: probe of 2-1.7:1.0 failed with error -5
usbcore: registered new interface driver ath3k


I haven't been able to figure out what is wrong. I was able to get it working once but nothing for a few weeks. I'm on the 2.6.37 kernel.

Works here (now) with git-sources-2.6.39-rc6 and linux-firmware. I just updated today.

Best regards!

I think, it is related to the firmware. Try to download the archive, used by Gentoo and extract it to /lib/firmware.

I'm using 3.4.9 kernel and I can't get the device working :( I've tried almost every option in kernel config, but bluetooth manager still says no bluetooth adapter conected (lsusb says it is connected).
According to this https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/557541/ the BT AR5BBU12 should be supported by kernel, right?
