Description of problem:
usb modeswitch does not work for ZTE 3565-Z UMTS USB Modem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Insert Modem and wait for switch. It does not happen. If i disable usb_modeswitch and eject from nautilus it works like expected.
This is from the logfile if it does not work:
Apr 28 10:14:49 kernel: usb 1-4: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
Apr 28 10:14:49 kernel: usb 1-4: New USB device found, idVendor=19d2, idProduct=2000

Apr 28 10:14:49 usb_modeswitch: switching 19d2:2000 (ZTE,Incorporated: ZTE CDMA Technologies MSM)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert modem
2. wait for modem to become available
3. nothing happens
modem not switched
Did it work with earlier versions of usb_modeswitch ?
It worked in the f13 alpha phase. Not sure when it stopped working, because i only use it now and then when i am in the train.
Found the problem. The MessageContent for the ZTE 3565-Z is wrong.
This is working for me:
You could try the following variant of the ZTE entry, if you have version 1.1.3 which is in Fedora Update:
To the best of my knowledge, this combination will handle really all "19d2:2000" devices.
It is used in the latest upstream release of the data package, "20100817".
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '13'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
This bug can be closed. The sequence suggested in comment #4 is working with
all of the quirky ZTE devices. All newer Fedora releases have it included.
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
