Making dual-sim QMI modem work

Please see This wiki page for latest version of this document

(Examples are for wileyfox-crackling)

  1. Put a working SIM into the device.

  2. Get working libqmi:

cd ~/.local/var/pmbootstrap/cache_git/pmaports/temp
mkdir libqmi
cd libqmi
wget https://gist.githubusercontent.com/Minecrell/eddea99e7c7b17c2a723d8ea657d56ea/raw/cf7a7e1467c062fce459a94ec9d479bb8a22712c/APKBUILD
pmbootstrap build libqmi --arch aarch64
  1. You need to install all the necessary components: (Assuming that you have local repo and Internet connection configured)
sudo apk add modem-qcom-msm-mainline-common ofono firmware-wileyfox-crackling-modem py-dbus libqmi py3-gobject3
sudo pip3 install ofonoctl
git clone https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/network/ofono/ofono.git
  1. Now you need to reboot into kernel that has hexagon enabled (You need to reboot in any case at this point)

  2. Check that your modem is working and detected SIM in slot:

wileyfox-crackling:~$ sudo qmicli -d /dev/modem --uim-get-card-status
[/dev/modem] Successfully got card status
Provisioning applications:
        Primary GW:   session doesn't exist
        Primary 1X:   session doesn't exist
        Secondary GW: session doesn't exist
        Secondary 1X: session doesn't exist
Slot [1]:
        Card state: 'present'
        UPIN state: 'not-initialized'
                UPIN retries: '0'
                UPUK retries: '0'
        Application [1]:
                Application type:  'usim (2)'
                Application state: 'detected'
                Application ID:
                        [ YOUR AID FOR THIS SIM ]
                Personalization state: 'unknown'
                UPIN replaces PIN1: 'no'
                PIN1 state: 'not-initialized'
                        PIN1 retries: '0'
                        PUK1 retries: '0'
                PIN2 state: 'not-initialized'
                        PIN2 retries: '0'
                        PUK2 retries: '0'
Slot [2]:
        Card state: 'error: no-atr-received (3)
        UPIN state: 'not-initialized'
                UPIN retries: '0'
                UPUK retries: '0'
  1. Now you can select this SIM with following command:
sudo qmicli -d /dev/modem --uim-change-provisioning-session="slot=1,activate=yes,session-type=primary-gw-provisioning,aid=$YOUR_AID"
[/dev/modem] Successfully changed provisioning session

You will have selected application at this point:

wileyfox-crackling:~$ sudo qmicli -d /dev/modem --uim-get-card-status
[/dev/modem] Successfully got card status
Provisioning applications:
        Primary GW:   slot '1', application '1'
        Primary 1X:   session doesn't exist
        Secondary GW: session doesn't exist
        Secondary 1X: session doesn't exist
Slot [1]:
        Card state: 'present'
        UPIN state: 'not-initialized'
                UPIN retries: '0'
                UPUK retries: '0'
        Application [1]:
                Application type:  'usim (2)'
                Application state: 'ready'
                Application ID:
                        [ AID ]
                Personalization state: 'ready'
                UPIN replaces PIN1: 'no'
                PIN1 state: 'disabled'
                        PIN1 retries: '3'
                        PUK1 retries: '10'
                PIN2 state: 'enabled-not-verified'
                        PIN2 retries: '2'
                        PUK2 retries: '10'
Slot [2]:
        Card state: 'error: no-atr-received (3)
        UPIN state: 'not-initialized'
                UPIN retries: '0'
                UPUK retries: '0'
  1. Only thing left is to start ofono:
wileyfox-crackling:~$ sudo service ofono start
