I am trying to upgrade my ath10k driver version to the latest version:
I am downloading the binary file from the following github location:

However, after placing the binary file in the directory
/lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA988X/hw2.0  the driver version remains at the
old version (  When I download the file from github, I
changed the name of the driver file from firmware-5.bin_10. to

I have tried using kernel version 4.0, 4.1.0 and 4.1.1 but the ath10k
driver fails to upgrade to

Any suggestions?
