E3372h-320 - switching works sometimes

Post by grawsom » 29 Dec 2020, 17:13

This is driving me crasy - just as I think it works - it just starts new errors.

Have been using E3372h-153, but now I can't get does anymore, so using -so must use 320 now, and when it switches correct the dongle works for my apps.

I have set the parameter HuaweiAltModeGlobal=1, and logfile=1, and if I connect the remove device after errors it switces ok - used dmesg --follow - see later in post
When starting up it sometimes don't do the switch to 155e but to 14db

2 things I are wondering about is in follow around 20 sec. it seems like the device resets
and in log file i get "libusb: error [_get_usbfs_fd] libusb couldn't open USB device /dev/bus/usb/001/007: No such device"

I'm running on RPI - buster - modeswitch 2.5.2 - using modemmanager gui to easily see when it works.

Sorry - edit the post - later here logs from when it works

This is from dmesg --follow

Re: E3372h-320 - switching works sometimes

Post by ValdikSS » 12 Apr 2021, 23:17

E3372-320, E8372-320 and other newer modems with firmware version 10.x.x.x try to automatically detect PC operating system (Linux/macOS or Windows) and switch the mode accordingly. This is done by detecting USB Get Max LUN request from the operating system to device's CD-ROM.

Automatic switching creates race condition, complicating operating system-driven switching to other modes (NCM, for example).

To prevent this behaviour on Linux (for example, on the router running OpenWRT), one should set SINGLE_LUN quirk for usb-storage module.

Code: Select all

# cat /etc/modprobe.d/huawei-noprobe.conf

options usb-storage quirks=12d1:1f01:s

Hmm, this suggestion should probably go to distribution maintainers.

What do you think? Should I add this modconf file to the usb_modeswitch distribution and explain the issue in the Changelog?
