Subject: Droid 4 WiFi firmware loading error
Date: Fri, 14 Feb 2020 00:54:50 +0300
Message-ID: <op.0fx4hozhhxa7s4@supervisor.net28> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>


Some users have reported that they have issues with WiFi firmware
loading on Droid 4. The fragment of dmesg for the issue follows
at the bottom of this mail.

With the help of Tony Lindgren I have found that the root of the
issue was Bluetooth firmware loaded before WiFi driver (wlcore).

Now we need to change the kernel to make it load Bluetooth firmware
only after WiFi firmware is loaded. So the bug will not be triggered.

Any ideas on how it should be done?

P.S. When I do "rmmod hci_uart" on Droid 4 device, I get something
like endless loop of error reporting from kernel. The fragment of
dmesg can be downloaded from
I'm not sure where to report this one.

Best regards, Arthur D.
