    Strange
    Code:
    ls /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.0/

    Re: QCA9377 and ath10k on Ubuntu 15.04 (Apparently now it's supported)

    board.bin
    firmware-5.bin_WLAN.TF.1.0-00267-1
    notice.txt_WLAN.TF.1.0-00267-1
    maybe rename firmware-5.bin_WLAN.TF.1.0-00267-1 to firmware-5.bin?

    edit: changed the name and it worked! thanks a lot!..

    Posting what i did to make it work: Notebook Model: Acer Aspire e5-473g.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r) git
    echo "options ath10k_core skip_otp=y" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ath10k_core.conf
    wget http://filebin.ca/2LVgpjSgiT56/backp...-11-05.tar.bz2
    unzip backp...-11-05.tar.bz2
    cd backports-ath10k-2015-11-05
    make defconfig-ath10k
    make
    sudo make install
    git clone https://github.com/kvalo/ath10k-firmware.git
    sudo cp -r ath10k-firmware/ath10k/ /lib/firmware/
    sudo cp -r ath10k-firmware/QCA9377 /lib/firmware/ath10k/
    cp firmware-5.bin_WLAN.TF.1.0-00267-1 firmware-5.bin
    Reboot
    Thanks a lot!

    Ah! Finally it works. Thanks dr-cono for your patience with testing, jeremy31and xbarmar for your valuable input. Hope you'll keep on checking back this thread to help people out.
    For the record, dr-cono's QCA9377 is a NFA435 according to documentation available at Acer website.

    xbarmar, could you please sort out the fw naming issue?

    Nice to know that it's working for you. As there are many versions of QCA9377, it'd be of some help to the developer in further development, if you could share the wireless info.txt here. Here's how to generate it: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=370108

    I wish to report success with a QCA9377, particulars whereof are:
    Network controller [0280]: Qualcomm Atheros Device [168c:0042] (rev 30)
    Subsystem: Lite-On Communications Inc Device [11ad:0806]

    Please note the different subsystem; dr-cono's was a Foxconn:
    "Subsystem: Foxconn International, Inc. Device [105b:e09a]"

    So, apparentely, the subsystem manufacturer/make has no bearing on the provided module backport as long as the device is:
    Qualcomm Atheros Device [168c:0042] (rev 30)

    And oh! Since I made an issue of it, the machine(Acer Aspire E15 E5-573-32JT) was manufactured in September, 2015AD.

    Re: QCA9377 and ath10k on Ubuntu 15.04 (Apparently now it's supported)

    Awesome! Mine here is working too now!

    I had the same problem dr-cono had. After renaming firmware-5.bin_WLAN.TF.1.0-00267-1 to firmware-5.bin and rebooting it started working!

    For the record, I checked the drivers on Windows and it says it's a NFA455.

    Thanks a lot guys, I can't really express in words how great this was! o/

    NFA455 works? The plot thickens, my dear Watson!

    Can we have a look at your wirelessinfo.txt. Here's how to generate it: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=370108
    What's of great interest is the device ID and the subsystem device ID and manufacturer. This information might be of some help to xbarmar (the original developer).

    For the record again, here's the manual (with board diagram) for Samsung's implementation of NFA455 called A3LNFA455 (A3L is FCC's shorthand for Samsung)
    https://fccid.io/document.php?id=2606121

    Aah! The only QCA9377 NFA455 with ID 168C:0042 (Rev 30)* was made for Samsung. This means yours is a Samsung machine. Right?
    In that case, this means this patch is good for (at least) all QCA9377 till the device ID is 168c:0042 (Rev 30)

    * There's another one too, but it's rev 31.

    Excelent! Mine is working on Ubuntu 14.04. My laptop: Acer Aspire E5-573-5148. Based on post http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...5#post13386625 from dr-cono, what I did was:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r) git
    echo "options ath10k_core skip_otp=y" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ath10k_core.conf
    In a temoporary directory (on a new Kernel installation, only repeat the following steps):

    Code:
    wget http://filebin.ca/2LVgpjSgiT56/backports-ath-2015-11-05.tar.bz2
    tar -vxf backports-ath-2015-11-05.tar.bz2
    cd backports-ath10k-2015-11-05
    make defconfig-ath10k
    make
    sudo make install
    Again in the temporary directory:

    Code:
    git clone https://github.com/kvalo/ath10k-firmware.git
    sudo cp -r ath10k-firmware/ath10k/ /lib/firmware/
    sudo cp -r ath10k-firmware/QCA9377 /lib/firmware/ath10k/
    sudo mv /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.0/firmware-5.bin_WLAN.TF.1.0-00267-1 /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.0/firmware-5.bin
    Then reboot.

    rinfinity: Yep, my notebook is Samsung!

    I've attached the wireless info... hope it helps!

    Just for the record, I've also tried it on an Ubuntu 15.10 and it's also working.
