  0489:e062 [Sony VAIO SVF1421C5E] Bluetooth adapter does not work with
  Broadcom driver

Status in bcmwl package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This laptop has bluetooth 4.0, and it does not connect to a Galaxy
  Trend GT-S7560, Android 4.0.4, kernel 3.0.8-1224927.

  The smartphone does not find the laptop, and ubuntu does not find
  Galaxy Trend too. I tested with blueman, no chance.

  BIOS version: R0220DA 11/18/2013

  The bluetooth device is this:

  ID 0489:e062 Foxconn / Hon Hai
    idVendor           0x0489 Foxconn / Hon Hai
    idProduct          0xe062
    bcdDevice            1.12
    iManufacturer           1 Broadcom Corp
    iProduct                2 BCM43142A0
    iSerial                 3 3C77E6D9F288

  07:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM43142 802.11b/g/n (rev 01)
   Subsystem: Foxconn International, Inc. Device e071
   Kernel driver in use: bcma-pci-bridge

  hcitool dev
   hci0	3C:77:E6:D9:F2:88

  It seems that firmware was not loaded:

  Someone did a patch to broadcom driver, and it works:
  http://emelramone.host22.com/Linux/BCM43142A0paraOM.html . I did here,
  but it did not work.

  I can connect this smartphone in other laptop (Itautec Infoway W7415)
  with xubuntu trusty, and it is very easy, both xubuntu and galaxy
  trend find themselves.
