BT - hciattach cmd fails on wl127x
We are trying to make BT up on J4 dm814x board using murata com6(wl127xx) chip.
After booting the kernel we did the following insmod operation
When we tried to run hciattach as follows, we got the timeout error
i.e hciattach /dev/ttyO3 texas 115200 &
Please could somebody help us solve this issue ?
Thanks & Regards,
The serial port you are using “/dev/ttyO3” is correct?
Is the InitScript( .bts file) located at “/lib/firmware/”.
Thanks for posting on TI E2E forum. We appreciate your feedback!Sundeep.

Please could you let us know how we could verify the right tty dev? the .bts file is present under /lib/firmwarePlease find the dmsg output file attached.
We got timeout error when we tried hciattach from the command prompt as follows.
root@dm814x-evm:/home/wifimod# hciattach /dev/ttyO1 texas 115200 &
opened serial port
calling cfmakeraw done
Set initial baudrate
inside texas inside texas_init
Initialization timed out.
Any pointers would be welcome.
Thanks and Regards,
The serial port associated with UARTX is referred as ttyOX.
So depending on the UART configured for Bluetooth the /dev/tty is defined.
Could you please provide me your board gpio_en_xxxxx.c file from path /kernel/drivers/bt_enable/gpio_en_xxxxx.c
For example for the board AM335x the file is /kernel/drivers/bt_enable/gpio_en_am335x.c
Thank you for your inputs.For DM814x the BT communication is through UART3. Thus /dev/ttyO3 should be right.
I have attached the file gpio_en_am335x.c
Any pointers would be useful.
If your UART Nomenclature is UART0, UART1 and UART2. Yes it is right.
Or If your UART Nomenclature is UART1, UART2 and UART3. Then it is ttyO2.
But you are saying you are using amx335x with WL127X, in which we have clearly mentioned that BT UART is ttyO1.
Please check the below link.
You are using a very old code. Could you please try it with the attached file (or) you can change the “gpio_set_value” to “gpio_direction_output” and try.
And make sure that the BT_EN(nSHUTDOWN GPIO) is correct.
Thanks for the information.
We are trying to bring up the BT on TI J4 platform (dm814x) ezsdk package 5.04.
The linux version is linux-2.6.37-psp04.04.00.01.
When we try to compile the latest gpio_en_am335x.c with above kernel package we get the following platform related errors of AM33x.

Could you please let us know your comments?
Can you please clarify if you are using amx335x or dm814x(with EZSDK Release 5.04.00.11).
If you are using amx335x – you can try my other suggestion change the “gpio_set_value” to “gpio_direction_output” instead of changing the whole file.
If you are using dm814x(with EZSDK Release 5.04) - As far as I understand Bluetooth is not supported in this EZSDK release. Please check the link below
Hi Rohini Srinivas,
What changes did you make on the kernel to get wl12xx(COM6) working on dm814/ mmc0?
