FS#931 - Onboard Bluetooth not working on Raspberry Pi 3 B

I have tried LEDE 17.01.1 and 17.01.2 and i can’t get bluetooth running on raspberry pi 3.

It will not flash the firmware for the bluetooth controller on rpi3, when device is brought up:

root@LEDE:~# /usr/bin/hciattach /dev/ttyAMA0 bcm43xx 921600 noflow -
Patch not found for BCM43430A1, continue anyway
Set Controller UART speed to 921600 bit/s
Device setup complete

Instead of patch not found it should produce:
Flash firmware /lib/firmware/brcm/BCM43430A1.hcd

I could not find this firmware via opkg, so i used a file from OpenELEC at

This however won’t load and bluetooth is not initialized correctly and unusable:

root@LEDE:~# /usr/bin/hciattach /dev/ttyAMA0 bcm43xx 921600 noflow -
Flash firmware /lib/firmware/brcm/BCM43430A1.hcd
Initialization timed out

Use 115200 as speed, not 921600

I will implement this in master once 4.14 support for brcm2708 has landed.
