Hi all,

the ME906v is a Linux-running Qualcomm based modem, which has been first
published about at DEFCON 23

It is EOL by now (Huawei probably wants to use HiSilicon these days
rather than Qualcomm) but can be found rather inexpensively from
refurbished suppliers like

Unfortunately it's M.2 / NGFF and not mPCIe, so it cannot be used in
most embedded devices (PC-Engines, Soekris, ...) or the Osmocom
mPCIE-breakout board.

I have just added some information to our wiki at and

* they don't really use the Linux for anything. Not even
  QCMAP_ConenctionManager running
* not many HUAWEI modifications recognizable on the Linux side
* no fancy FOTA updates or AT+QLINUXCMD equivalents
* DIAG is present by default
* ADB can be enabled, but requires serial console soldering at least
  once :/

Would be nice to find a way to enable adb without having to solder.

I'm still working with Huawei to release the related complete and
corresponding source code under the GPL.
