dmesg shows:

  ubt0: <Broadcom USB Bluetooth Dongle, class 224/1, rev 1.10/0.01, addr 2> on usbus6

usbconfig dump_device_desc shows:
  ugen6.2: <USB Bluetooth Dongle Broadcom> at usbus6, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=FULL (12Mbps) pwr=ON (100mA)

   bLength = 0x0012
   bDescriptorType = 0x0001
   bcdUSB = 0x0110
   bDeviceClass = 0x00e0  <Wireless controller>
   bDeviceSubClass = 0x0001
   bDeviceProtocol = 0x0001
   bMaxPacketSize0 = 0x0040
   idVendor = 0x0a5c
   idProduct = 0x200a
   bcdDevice = 0x0001
   iManufacturer = 0x0001  <Broadcom>
   iProduct = 0x0002  <USB Bluetooth Dongle>
   iSerialNumber = 0x0003  <2035B0000001>
   bNumConfigurations = 0x0001

No, I don't dual boot anything. I have never loaded firmware - maybe it happened automatically in the past, but I've never used ubtbcmfw explicitly.

Thanks for your help,
