You need board.bin too. Something like this if you want to
use my firmware, or firmware-5.bin for upstream 10.2 firmware:
[root at ben-ota-1 lanforge]# ls -l /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA988X/hw2.0/
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 2116 Sep 27 14:43 board.bin
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 201324 Oct 13 18:48 firmware-2.bin
