NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     bcmfw -- firmware download utility for Broadcom BCM2033 chip based Bluetooth
 USB devices

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     bcmfw [-h] -f firmware_file_name -m mini-driver_file_name -n device_name

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The bcmfw utility downloads the specified mini-driver and firmware files
     to the specified device.

     This utility will only work with Broadcom BCM2033 chip based Bluetooth
     USB devices.  The identification is currently based on USB vendor
     ID/product ID pair.  The vendor ID should be 0x0a5c (USB_VENDOR_BROADCOM)
     and the product ID should be 0x2033.

     Due to copyright issues I will no longer provide mini-driver and firmware
     files for the device. These files can be obtained from the Linux BlueZ
     BlueFW package.

     Visit http://bluez.sourceforge.net/download/download.html for details.

     I am using the following files:

	   MD5 (BCM2033-MD.hex) = 5580317158d07fc4ace90af04f8e1c73
	   MD5 (BCM2033-FW.bin) = a3a0edfcb85029f4a5d0b1c9649b127d

     The options are as follows:

     -f firmware_file_name
	     Specify firmware file name for download.

     -h      Display usage message and exit.

     -m mini-driver_file_name
	     Specify mini-driver file name for download.

     -n device_name
	     Specify device name.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

     BCM2033-MD.hex	Mini-driver image.
     BCM2033-FW.bin	Firmware image.
     /dev/ubtbcmfwN.EE	Endpoint EE of device N.

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

     To download the firmware into the /dev/ubtbcmfw0 device:

	   bcmfw -n ubtbcmfw0 -m BCM2033-MD.hex -f BCM2033-FW.bin

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     Most likely.  Please report if found.
