    mitch@Master-Exploder ~/broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5/driver $ b43-fwcutter -w "$FIRMWARE_INSTALL_DIR" wl_apsta_mimo.o
    This file is recognised as:
    ID : FW13
    filename : wl_apsta_mimo.o
    version : 410.2160
    MD5 : cb8d70972b885b1f8883b943c0261a3c
    Extracting b43/pcm5.fw
    failed to open file: Permission denied
    mitch@Master-Exploder ~/broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5/driver $

    Permission denied? I am obviously the administrator, and running this as a sudo command does not work either.
