See the guide at https://askubuntu.com/a/632348/300665 but search the file for e065 rather than 21d7
Once converted the firmware will likely need to be /lib/firmware/brcm/BCM.hcd

I just tried to download https://github.com/winterheart/broadcom ... b-e065.hcd and rename to BCM.hcd and move it to /lib/firmware/brcm.
Now I can use for transfer file between my phone.

Honestly I want to use bluetooth because of this issues viewtopic.php?f=49&t=273090, so I want to buy bluetooth headphone later and hope it will support for mic to work.
Thanks for help Buddy Q(^_^)Q
