HP Pavilion X360 Wireless Issue Solved

I have got a new HP Pavilion 13 x360 and installed Ubuntu 14.04 and I'm having issues with wireless. I've  got many solution however nothing worked for me.

One of the solution worked, so keeping it on my blog so that others can take advantage of it, here is the info of hardware as well as the solution.

Network Hardware Info:
sudo lshw -C network

Issue with firmware, Need to download it from web
Please download this to your desktop
Right-click it and select 'Extract Here.'
Now, open Terminal and guide to the extracted folder, Run below commands

cd ~/Desktop/iwlwifi-7265-ucode-
sudo cp iwlwifi-7265D-12.ucode /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-3165-9.ucode
sudo cp iwlwifi-7265-12.ucode  /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-3165-12.ucode
After all this, just blacklist acer-wmi to ignore loading of acer-wmi and hp-wmi.
sudo -i
modprobe -r acer-wmi
echo "blacklist
acer-wmi"  >>  /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
And @ last reboot system.
I hope this will work for all
