The 4g modem EC21/EC25/EG25 (they are almost the same thing) are supposed to be linux based modems. I need help to make sure that. Also the guys of osmocom says its linux. The EG25-W is also the modem that will be used in the upcoming Pine Phone (please dont tell me "android is linux").
I must say that at first there are 100000 clues that suggest that it android but... I just want to be sure.
The first point is the kernel. Is it linux or android ?

I have access to the console.
The boot is little kernel (mtd7).
The kernel partition (mtd8) is unmounted.

I'm testing a EC21. Here is some info on pastebin:
Startup debug
Dmesg
General info

Ask me for more informations.
Thanks.

Well, sorry but I will tell you that Android Is Linux.
The main reason for us to say that is because Android works with the Linux kernel.

In every ROM thread you have the mention :
"ROM Kernel : Linux 3.10.x" for example.
