Manjaro wifi connection with the new chipset AW-CM256SM

I purchased recently Radxa zero which is equipped with the new wifi chipset AW-CM256SM. I installed Manjaro, but wifi is not working probably because there is no firmware installed for this wifi module. Bluetooth is working and I can use to eventually to transfer and install required drivers/firmware. Please if you can guide me what I have to install to have wifi working.
Thank you

could you try to download following files?
-> /lib/firmware/brcm/brcmfmac43455-sdio.txt
-> /lib/firmware/brcm/brcmfmac43455-sdio.bin
-> /lib/firmware/brcm/brcmfmac43455-sdio.clm_blob

Thank you. After I downloaded files to Radxa zero via bluetooth and renamed the files wifi with the new chipset is working fine.
Best regards

Hey Stefan, just bought a Radxa Zero a few weeks ago too and I presume I have the same Wifi firmware problem as you but I’m a little lost in this case, can you help me pin point some key steps to apply this solution on my device? Thank you in advance for your support!

Hi Baldur,
I am not so good in linux, but I will try to help you. Which operating system you upload in the emmc, if any? If it is debian, correct drivers are already loaded and wifi connection should work without any problem following radxa zero wiki…
