Gegor did you manage to get the hs2350 GPS working?

Gregor, 2014/04/24 10:27

I didn't tried to get GPS, since i don't use it on the laptop. The umts-Modem works fine now…

The MousePad is quite buggy, in 1 of 10 (approx.) the module crashes:

I had to add the correct parameters for the ericsson WwAN module in

/lib/udev/rules.d/77-mm-ericsson-mbm.rules

Paramters could be found by calling “usb-devices”

Mine are:

# HP hs2350

ATTRS{idVendor}==“03f0”, ATTRS{idProduct}==“3d1d”, ENV{ID_MM_ERICSSON_MBM}=“1”
