After fresh instal of Ubuntu 18.04 on Yoga 3 pro Bluetooth didn't work


output had a line as the following:

hci0: BCM: Patch brcm/BCM20702A1-0489-e07a.hcd not found

1 Answer 1


I downloaded 'BCM20702A1-0489-e07a.hcd' from https://github.com/winterheart/broadcom-bt-firmware/tree/master/brcm and copied it to /lib/firmware/brcm/

maybe the easiest way to put it in the console:

cd /lib/firmware/brcm/

sudo wget https://github.com/winterheart/broadcom-bt-firmware/tree/master/brcm/BCM20702A1-0489-e07a.hcd

After restart the Bluetooth worked again...

Cheers :)
