I am vary beginner to cubieboard4 (A80) as well as Linux. As per the cubieboard4 specification it is having bcm40183b2 (bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi) chip and it is connected through Uart2.
I can see this in /lib/firmware/ap6330/. And it is having dabian linux 3.4.39.

If I do lsmod I am able to see bnep,hidp,hci_uart,rfcomm, bluetooth modules in my system.

But If I do
$hcitool dev

I am not able to see any controller. Please any one guide me how to enable bluetooth controller for cubieboard4 (A80).

And if i do
$rfkill list it is showing
0: rtl8723bs: Bluetooth
        Soft blocked: no
        Hard blocked: no

Now again I am confused here. Because rtl8723bs is realtek wifi and BT chipset. But cubieboard4 (A80) spec is telling it is having bcm40183b2 chipset.

Please tell me cubieboard4 is having which chipset?
and how to enable bluetooth controller for cubieboard4 (A80)?
