Thanks for sharing! Honestly this is quite ironic, as I was literally referring to their documentation here (Section 2.2.2 Driver option)
And I saw that command! But when I typed it out, I did the following:
echo 1bc7 1201 > /sys/bus/usb-serial/drivers/option1/new_id
In my terminal, then rebooted, but my serial interfaces did not come back up. I wasn't too sure I understood if it would work, but given what they wrote, it seemed promising. I wasn't exactly sure what my PID was.
You'll have to excuse me as my knowledge of the kernel at this level is not very deep, (but I'm learning as I go along). So with the echo command you provided, you found this in the kernel mailer that @bmork just referenced, correct?
Then once execute this command, do I use the command
qmicli --device-open-mbim -p -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 --dms-swi-set-usb-composition=# to change the composition? And I won't have to update my OpenWrt snapshot to do this? (Sorry for all the questions, I'm very new to this, in terms of cellular modems, I'm 3 days in)
Wow what timing! October 4th. I just got this modem almost at the right time! I actually bought this modem from sixfab (https://sixfab.com/product/raspberry-pi-4g-lte-modem-kit/) with their LTE HAT for raspberry pi, but wanted to do this on OpenWrt. I just liked the form factor of a HAT versus using a usb dongle, because well, it protrudes too much haha. Otherwise, If I had a board with a mini PCI slot, I'd certainly be using that. I'll get one of those in the future to play around with.
Glad to hear they are doing their job!
I look forward to when it gets into the stable build and then into OpenWrt!
Slightly off topic, but in terms of modems, would you recommend Sierra Wireless over Telit? From my research, I see that Sierra Wireless has quite the community around it (just like OpenWrt), which makes me gravitate to using their modems in the future.
Thank you so much for your help, you're really helping me out of a bind.
