Wi-Fi Combo

I could not find an exact answer for this question of mine. Do BCM88335 or BCM43353 support wifi direct as group owner?

Thank you in advance!

Yes the BCM43353 (aka BCM4339A0) hardware supports P2P, and Group Owner mode   However, you should double check the Version information from the binaries you're using to ensure it's compiled in.  Search for "Version" information, and look for "-p2p" as one of the features.

If you see it, it's enabled. Here's an example for 4343W chipset that has p2p enabled:

4343W --->sdio-g-pool-p2p-idsup-idauth-pno-pktfilter-keepalive-aoe-lpc-swdiv-srfast-fuart-bcmcps.bin

Here's an example for a 4329 chipset that DOESN'T have "p2p" enabled:

$ find . -type f | xargs strings | grep Version 4329b1/sdio-ag-cdc-full11n-reclaim-roml-wme-aoe-pktfilter-keepalive-extsup Version: 4.220.55.0 CRC: ec2f3ad Date: Fri 2013-01-18 16:20:36 PST FWID 01-acfd1f66

If you're working with a module partner, you should check with them for any nuances they're aware of.
