    Thinkpad 11e Yoga Gen6 (Educat) Bluetooth not working (maybe not related to a flavor)

    I've installed Kubuntu 20.04.02 with the lates updates until 6.4.2021. The Thinkpad uses an Intel wlan/bluetooth AC-9260 HW. Rev.29. The WLAN is working fine, but the bt adapter can not be turned on. I tested a lot of Kernels from 4.18 to 5.11.x without success. I installed Windows in parallel, just to be sure that the BT adapter is working, and i can confirm that its working fine on Windows. When i try to enable it manually by thinkpad_acpi bluetooth_enable it will not turn it on (echo 1 | sudo tee bluetooth_enable). rfkill unblock bluetooth can unlock everything except tpacpi_bluetooth_sw HARD. Its not possible to unlock it even if i disable "fast boot on shutdown" in the windows system. There is also no physical HW button to enable BT or something like that. The WLAN-Adapter is working just fine and i also tested every available intel firmware one by one up to version 46. I really need bluetooth as soon as possible otherwise i will be forced to stay on windows what i really do not want.

    Here are some outputs:

    Here is the output:

    I tried more than once to reset to BIOS defaults or disabled and re-enabled the BT in the EFI Bios. And when i dual boot into Windows BT is fine - when into Kubuntu BT is hard blocked.

    Thanx for helping!

    Just wait for some firmware updates to complete. I think.

    Ok, thanx for the hint! Do you know maybe if intel is working on this new firmwre already? Or does this standard wireless card differ from other AC9260 versions? Why i am asking - is it Lenovo or Intel that needs to provide something to get the BT to work? Any suggestions?

    Thanx!
