SubjectHuawei E220 and usb storage
From
Dear all,

I recently got an Huawei E220 usb modem. Reading a bit on the net I
found that:

The Huaweii E220 modem is a composite USB device: in fact it acts like a
mass storage device, and also as three serial communication ports. The
Linux's developers dealt with this ignoring the mass device storage
(which is a read-only mass storage, i.e. a CD-ROM with preload software
only for Windows). For more information see
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/testing/ChangeLog-2.6.20-rc2 or
http://lwn.net/Articles/220545/ where you read the changelog for 2.6.20
linux kernel. The interesting part is reported here below:

[...]
Johann Wilhelm (2): usb-storage: Ignore the virtual cd-drive of the
Huawei E220 USB Modem usb-gsm-driver: Added VendorId and ProductId for
Huawei E220 USB Modem
[...]

This modification is present from Linux kernel 2.6.20 and more recent
ones.

See: http://ske.sourceforge.net/html/projects/huawei/huawei_tre.html

Now that I plug my modem I definitely get this usb storage device, and I
need to call a special program to switch to the other mode
(huaweiAktBbo, from
http://www.kanoistika.sk/bobovsky/archiv/umts/huaweiAktBbo.c).

Several pages on the web state that it should work *without* this switch
program.

Is this a regression from 2.6.20, or is it supposed to work?

Thanks a lot and all the best

Norbert
