similar as described in other posts, /dev/gsmmodem is not created (Raspbian Jessie/USB_modeswitch 2.5).
Logfile /var/log/usb_modeswitch_1-1.4 I tells me:
USB_ModeSwitch log from Sun Apr 02 15:12:07 CEST 2017

Use global config file: /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf
Raw parameters: --switch-mode 1-1.4:1.0
Top device directory not found (/sys/bus/usb/devices/1-1.4)! Exit

ls /sys/bus/usb/devices/1-1.4/
1-1.4:1.0   avoid_reset_quirk    bDeviceSubClass     bNumInterfaces  devnum     idVendor      power      serial     version

authorized  bDeviceProtocol      bNumConfigurations  dev             idProduct  port          remove     urbnum

That means, folder /sys/bus/usb/devices/1-1.4 exists.

Bus 001 Device 005: ID 12d1:1001 Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. E169/E620/E800 HSDPA Modem

Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9514 Standard Microsystems Corp.
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Why is gsmmodem missing?

Is there a solution for this?

Thank you,

Regarding that first problem (non-existent folder "/sys/bus/usb/devices/1-1.4"):

It's possible that this modem is mode-switched by the kernel. So at the moment usb_modeswitch tries to handle it, it is already gone and in 'transition' to modem mode. It obviously appears as "12d1:1001" which is the modem mode, so something has succeeded in mode-switching it.

If that assumption is correct, you should get the modem mode even if usb_modeswitch is globally disabled (in /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf).

You can follow the process by calling "dmesg" often after you insert the modem. The mode switch is indicated by a hint of "disconnect" in the output, followed by the discovery of a new USB device.
