Has anyone succeeded to start USB 3G modem on A500.
It is the 5-th day I am trying different roms and kernels.
Now I use Thor Rom 14.2 [3.2.1], and applied 3g fix 14.2 with no result.
Please Help

E173s does not work, although E173 is listed as supported, e173s is a new revision with different driver and it doesn't work with iconia.
I also have this stick and I lost couple if days trying to make it work, finally I bought E1552 for 10$ and it works flawlessly.

Error when searching for networks, and it is impossible to save APN. Absolutely no difference with or without the USB Stick.
I saw some people saying that after several procedures it works. Some kernel modules may be, or probably I need drivers for E173s-2.

Are you sure you flashed the 14.2 3g patch? There was a previous version with a defective apn.conf file that produced the problems you are describing. Maybe you try flashing again the latest 3g patch.

With best regards, maris
