0cf3:3004 Atheros Communications, Inc. AR3012 Bluetooth 4.0

Hi everyone,

I can't get bluetooth working. Here is some info:

After modprobe -r ath3k && modprobe ath3k

[  352.336845] Bluetooth: Patch file version did not match with firmware

That's sure a lame error message.

I went to the code containing that error message and found that it first interrogates the device to get it's firmware version and uses that information to determine the patch file filename. If it can't find the file on your system that error message would tell you the filename it didn't find.

But in your case, it actually found the file it wanted but all I can determine is it's one of those that begins with "AthrBT_". The code then proceeds to look at some data within the file itself (rom version and build version) and compares it to the data in the firmware on the device. In your case it didn't like what it found so it threw the error message shown above.

I suspect you already knew that, because when I compare your MD5 hash values with those found on my box (linux-firmware 20150722.e10097a-1) the hash doesn't match on some of the same AthrBT_* files. I'm thinking that's the problem.

Re: 0cf3:3004 Atheros Communications, Inc. AR3012 Bluetooth 4.0

Thanks pigiron,

I've tried different fw files, even the files from working Windows 8 installation with no luck. Is there a known good combination (which I'm not sure if anybody can actually make this hw work) or any sane way to get more info on this?

Re: 0cf3:3004 Atheros Communications, Inc. AR3012 Bluetooth 4.0

And as a strange sidenote, the message changed after upgrading BIOS. There is no such file yet:

[    9.396556] Bluetooth: Configuration file not found ar3k/ramps_0x00000200_0.dfu

That actually helps lift the fog just a tiny bit.

The code in that area uses a standard Linux USB kernel function to send a ATH3K_GETVERSION command to the device to pull the rom version, build version, ram version, and ref clock info. All I can say is that operation appears to have been successful. The different section of code used in your original failure made the exact same USB call, also successfully.

But this time, the error messages let's us know that it determined that the device rom version is 0x00000200 and the ref clock is curiously 0. That clock value is the default if the returned value doesn't match any other predefined choices, so I assume that it's valid, but seems somewhat strange. The only place in the driver code I find it being used is to create a portion (the *_0.dfu part) of the filename of that file it can't find.

Peek at the ath3k_load_syscfg function in the drivers/bluetooth/ath3k.c file to see for yourself.

It sure seems like either the driver is fundamentally borked or this is a very early version of the device. Did you buy it on eBay or something?

Weird. This is an integrated device on the MSI laptop. Also found this thread:

http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-blue … 62703.html

I guess I need to wait for the drivers..

OK, that link lifts a bunch of fog.

Yea, you should either wait for the dust to settle or jump into the deep end of the pool and help because they're changing the blacklist so that the btusb portion of the driver loads the firmware and patch instead of the at3k portion. So a fundamental driver unbork is in progress.

This patch would cause issues for people with the same bluetooth device ID with the AR9485 wireless/bluetooth AR5B225

This should be fixed in upstream kernels with the btqca module

It would have been easier if Qualcomm wouldn't have used the same ID on a Rome bluetooth chip and an older one

You can make the patched module and have bluetooth now.  I am not sure what kernel has the correct Rome bluetooth support

You might have to find the correct spot as the patch was made against bluetooth-next.git and the line number is likely off

And to get the firmware

wget http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/msdownload/update/driver/drvs/2014/01/20623393_919a4673931aa789f0b1c3eeafb360b36097894a.cab

Re: 0cf3:3004 Atheros Communications, Inc. AR3012 Bluetooth 4.0

Thanks jeremy31, realized the bluetooth support doesn't worth it. I shouldn't have to rebuild the kernel for hardware support on a rolling-release binary distro.

Re: 0cf3:3004 Atheros Communications, Inc. AR3012 Bluetooth 4.0

I wouldn't rebuild the entire kernel for a single module that needs a small patch

Create a folder in home named bluetooth and save the following files


http://pastebin.com/VbJXq4x5 for btusb.c patched
And use the following for Makefile

obj-m += btusb.o
 
all:
	make -C /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build M=$(PWD) modules
 
clean:
	make -C /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build M=$(PWD) clean

Copy the config file

cp /boot/config-$(uname -r) .config

  Then run

make

Then you could see if it works

sudo modprobe -r btusb
sudo insmod ./btusb.ko

Re: 0cf3:3004 Atheros Communications, Inc. AR3012 Bluetooth 4.0

I've made an AUR package that patches the kernel module, btusb-qca-0x3004 (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/btusb-qca-0x3004/).

You should be able to install the AUR package then immediately run

bluetoothctl

and the interface will show up.

Let me know if it works (this is my first attempt at an AUR package...)

Re: 0cf3:3004 Atheros Communications, Inc. AR3012 Bluetooth 4.0

katy,

Thank you so much for this! I've been manually patching and recompiling my kernel every time I get a kernel update. I'm not 100% sure how to use DKMS, pacman hooks or even create an AUR package so this made my life so much easier.

Loving Arch and this community!
