If this point was not clear, let me help change that here.

It's either (blacklist the b43 driver)
blacklist=bcma,ssb,b43  AND use only the wl-modules-3.8.10-tinycore.tcz  extension

OR

if compatible (see post #14)
use the built in b43 driver (ie no blacklist)  and use the cutter to extract the required firmware as described in the linuxwireless.org drivers, see b43-fwcutter.tcz extension and it's info file.
Or maybe there is a chance that using firmware-broadcom_bcm43xx.tcz extension may provide the necessary firmware (it's really hard to know for sure without the wireless device to test with).

Hello,

There is no problem in the hardware as it is working fine with 4.7. The problem arise only with tc 5.x
an wifi stopped working

Please refer to the attachment showing wifi working fine with 4.7

Yes I understand, but it's a Broadcom Licensing problem.

Following the above recommendations without mixing the two methods is likely the only way to fix the issue

How about we ask which driver or firmware extensions are you using to enable the Broadcom adapter with tc-4.7.7
