[ 4508.175571] Bluetooth: hci0: BCM: Patch brcm/BCM20702A1-0b05-17cb.hcd not found

So your device id is 0b05:17cb -> 0B05:17CB

and the driver should be pleace here: /lib/firmware/brcm/BCM20702A1-0b05-17cb.hcd

curl -s 'https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/filelist.txt?h=bcm20702a1-firmware' \
 | grep '0B05:17CB'
0B05:17CB: BCM20702A1_001.002.014.1443.1467.hex

So the file name is BCM20702A1_001.002.014.1443.1467.hex

Prepare driver for linux

unzip bt400-driver.zip
cd Win10_USB-BT400_DRIVERS/Win10_USB-BT400_Driver_Package/64
hex2hcd BCM20702A1_001.002.014.1443.1467.hex -o BCM20702A1-0b05-17cb.hcd

Copy driver to the right place

sudo mkdir -p /lib/firmware/brcm/
sudo cp BCM20702A1-0b05-17cb.hcd /lib/firmware/brcm/

Re-connected the device

If everything is ok youd should see something like that
