Hi,

attached is an update.zip that adds 3G / UMTS support for Huawei Modems to the Folio 100:





Installation Instructions:
ALWAYS HAVE CHARGER CONNECTED WHEN UPDATING A FIRMWARE.

Preparation:

You must disable the CD-ROM drive with AT^U2DIAG=0 on the modem before you can use it on the folio.

Connect your USB modem to your PC, find out the COM port used by the modem and then connect via putty to the COM port and send AT^U2DIAG=0.

Here is a tutorial how to send AT commands using Windows: http://3g-modem.wetpaint.com/page/ex...+under+Windows

Also disable the PIN check on your SIM card.

Installation:
  1. copy the update.zip to a sdcard, and insert sdcard into folio.
  2. Enter "Recovery menu" when folio is just turned on and press (POWER) once and (VOL up) next.
  3. press (VOL up) Factory reset or system update.
  4. press(VOL down) to continue to system update.
  5. press (VOL up) to confirm system update.
  6. during installation progress bar will show har far it is.
  7. folio will reboot after installation.

Please ignore the "Unsupported USB Device" message. I have not yet manged to remove it.


After reboot a BLACK screen appear for a few minutes or so!! don't worry, its normal! This is only for the first start.

Supported devices:

Only HUAWEI devices will work!

Devices known to work:

* Vodafone K3765-H
* Vodafone K3715
* Vodafone K3565 / Huawei E160
* Huawei E173
* Huawei E1550
* Huawei E1692
* Huawei E1820

Devices needs to be tested:


Devices known NOT to work:

* Vodafone K3765-Z (this is manufactured by ZTE and not Huawei)

Known problems:

* PIN check is not working - disable the SIM PIN using a mobile phone or your PC
* Switching between GPRS and 3G does not work - you must replug your modem to get it work again
* Roaming must be enabled on some devices to get them work
Updates:

Update 1.1:
* Fixed initialization. Now more huawei modems will work.
* Bugfix ip-up and ip-down scrips

Please ignore the message. It is incorrect. I will always show up for devices not supported by stock android. I need to modify the firmware heavier to get rid of it. Please connect your modem and see if the signal strength bar will show up.

I have just tested the PIN check - it seems to be broken. I need to investigate this. So please disable it on the SIM card for now.

How do you send AT commands to the USB Modem
You say to disable CD-ROM, disable it sending AT commands...

How do you do this?

On the FOLIO or on a PC/MAC?

Thanks for the tip.

I'm trying with a E169G and i have signal and the 3g simbol but i can't use the internet. In pc i need to dial *#99# to get internet. In folio i can't dial.

Is this the reason to can't connect?
