LTE modem to D410c, no Mobile networks menu


#1

Hello,

I wanna test an USB typed LTE modem to D410c,
but Android Lollipop does not have ‘Mobile Networks’ setting menu.

Any ideas about this ?

thanks,

If you want to integrate this as a standard modem (AT commands…), You will have to integrate or implement the radio hal (cf https://source.android.com/devices/tech/connect/ril). Note that Android provides a basic vendor RIL with minimum feature set (hardware/ril/reference-ril).

Thanks @Loic ,

RIL and Modem operation checked.
But device cannot get an IP address. No ‘Mobile networks’ menu to configure.
To add this menu on Lollipop, what shall I do?

I think you need to edit the framework config overlay:
device/linaro/hikey/overlay/frameworks/base/core/res/res/values/config.xml

I suggest you to add the mobile network attribute:
<string-array translatable="false" name="networkAttributes">
<item>"mobile,0,0,0,-1,true"</item>
...

You can look at device/google/marlin/overlay/frameworks/base/core/res/res/values/config.xml for example.

VERY thanks @Loic ,

I will check the file if mobile network is added.
