I'm very surprised that QCA9880 hw1.0 boards are still available, after
six years. Did you confirm that it really is hw1.0 and not just some
mixup with hardware ids or something like that? For example, you could
try the old ath10k and old hw1.0 firmware to see if it works.

But if it's really is hw1.0 I doubt there will be any support for that.
I recommend to avoid hw1.0 altogether.
