Description Javier Alejandro Castro 2009-08-03 15:54:04 EDT
Description of problem:

ZTE MF622 does not work out-of-the-box on F11, rawhide.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Buy ZTE MF622
2. Install F11, install udev-extras
3. Plug in ZTE MF622
Actual results:

Remains as a CD device

Expected results:

Change its mode thourgh modem-modeswitch from CD to modem

Additional info:

For my modem, the change would be modify file /lib/udev/rules.d/61-option-modem-modeswitch.rules adding a line with:

ATTRS{idVendor}=="19d2", ATTRS{idProduct}=="2000", RUN+="modem-modeswitch -v 0x%s{idVendor} -p 0x%s{idProduct} -t option-zerocd"

I suggest: Would be nice to include all available modem models from file /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf included in package usb_modeswitch.rpm
Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2009-08-04 06:04:12 EDT
udev-extras got merged in udev and is obsoleted, please update udev
Comment 2 Javier Alejandro Castro 2009-08-04 08:25:29 EDT
as requested by halard, please update udev to contain rules for 3g modems
Comment 3 Javier Alejandro Castro 2009-11-07 14:37:42 EST
Yes! Now it works fine. Thanks!
Comment 4 Fedora Update System 2009-11-27 16:47:53 EST
udev-145-14.fc12 has been pushed to the Fedora 12 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
Comment 5 Dan Williams 2009-12-04 23:46:07 EST
So this change causes problems for ZTE devices like the MF626 and the 2.6.31 kernel (bug #533716).  It's also the wrong approach since the modeswitch command for Option NV devices is not the correct command for ZTE devices.

The correct way to switch these devices is using usb_modeswitch, not the Option-specific rules from modem-modeswitch.
