Hello @Sonic-Y3k, ASUS seem to have updated their CDN address to use HTTPS. To avoid a 404 when trying to download the driver from their website, can you use the new${pkgver} link? Thank you for maintaining this package!

Thank you very much. This fixed the bluetooth on laptop Toshiba Satellite c40-c-10k running xfce4.

Bus 003 Device 003: ID 105b:e065 Foxconn International, Inc. BCM43142A0 Bluetooth module The VID is 105b and PID e065. I'm glad to this package support it, but when I reload btusb moudle, kernel cant find firmware brcm/BCM.hcd. I move brcm/BCM43142A0-105b-e065.hcd to brcm/BCM.hcd, then it works. There is my patch.

Used to work before updating to 4.15

Edit: The error above was on a DELL XPS 9550. After updating bios to the latest version - 1.6.1, everything works

Still have the same problem with broadcom adapter. But Orico BTA-403 works very well.

The problem is sound may disapper on distanse >= 10 cm. No such problem when I play music from my phone to the same bluetooth device.

@OdinEidolon apparently BCM20703A1 requires a different name for it's firmware. If you install the updated version, everything should work just fine.

I have this BT chipset (Dell 1830) but...

[ 3.382633] Bluetooth: hci0: BCM20703A1
[ 3.383627] Bluetooth: hci0: BCM (001.001.005) build 0000

What is going on? (EDIT: I'll try to link the driver to the reported missing file... OK, it works:
ln -s /lib/firmware/brcm/BCM20703A1-0a5c-6410.hcd /lib/firmware/brcm/BCM-0a5c-6410.hcd
