Hi,
I'm trying to make Rockchip LTE module (RM310) work with the RK3399. I tried with the Debian and Ubuntu releases available for download at OrangePis downloads section. The behavious I faced was pretty much the same on both distributions.

The module is not auto-detected. It needs to be reset by pressing the grey reset button on the PCIe module. After that the device shows up after about 10 seconds:

code:

  1. root@orangepi4:~# mmcli -M
  2. No modems were found
  3. (+) /org/freedesktop/ModemManager1/Modem/1 [ASR] Nezha_MIFI
It seems like it's being enabled:

code:

  1. <div>root@orangepi4:~# sudo mmcli -m 3 -w
  2. d    /org/freedesktop/ModemManager1/Modem/3: Initial state, 'enabling'</div>
But what is actually happening is it is dropping the connection:

code:

  1. root@orangepi4:~# sudo mmcli -L
  2. No modems were found
Here are a few outputs from the journalctl that might help debugging the problem for more experienced users:

code:

  1. Aug 15 11:47:31 orangepi4 ModemManager[330]: <info>  [device /sys/devices/platform/fe380000.usb/usb7/7-1] creating modem with plugin 'Generic' and '4' ports
  2. Aug 15 11:47:31 orangepi4 ModemManager[330]: <warn>  Could not grab port (tty/ttyUSB0): 'Cannot add port 'tty/ttyUSB0', unhandled serial type'
  3. Aug 15 11:47:31 orangepi4 ModemManager[330]: <info>  Modem for device '/sys/devices/platform/fe380000.usb/usb7/7-1' successfully created
  4. Aug 15 11:47:31 orangepi4 ModemManager[330]: <warn>  couldn't load Supported Modes: 'Couldn't retrieve supported modes'
  5. Aug 15 11:47:31 orangepi4 ModemManager[330]: <warn>  Parse error in step 0: Could not recognize +CSIM response '+CSIM:4,63C3'.


Also, it doen't help if I enable the modem with `-e`. It just drops the interface. Do I need to load some firmware? If yes, which? A little more documentation from the OrangePi crew would be very much appreciated.

Regards


(Note that the `-m X` modem selector changes a couple of times above which is because I have to reset the modem repeatedly).

A little update: I checked the list of suppoted modules for Modem Manager here and found that Huawai seems to have pretty good support coverage.
I tried a mPCIe module carrying a Huawai ME909s-120 LTE module and it seems to work out of the box. It gets detected automatically, I can enable it, set the pin and it finally enters state 'connected'.
This, I would not recommend using the rm310 for now unless you really know what you are doing. Still, I would be very, very interested in finding out how to make the rm310 work! Thus, @OrangePi-Team please tell us how you managed to get this module working? BTW.: I also recompiled a few linux kernels availble at rockchip-linux. Unfortunately, there are plenty of trees, so that it's not clear to me which would be the most appropriate to use. Any hints are highly welcome!

For your reference.
I tried the Sierra MC7700.
However, the sim could not be detected.

If you convert nimiPCIe to USB and attach it to OrangePi 4B, SIM will be detected. If SIM is detected, you can use it normally.

I couldn't tell whether it was a hardware problem or a software problem, so I stopped using PCIE-SOCKET-OPI4-4B with the LTE module.
In my possession, the miniPCIe module has an Edge TPU in addition to LTE. As a test, I was able to build a driver for kernel 4.4.213-rk3399 and infer it via PCIE-SOCKET-OPI4-4B.

If possible, it may be a good idea to get firmware that uses the QMI modem protocol from the module chip manufacturer. If it is the latest firmware, it may be supported.

Armbian kernel 5.8.12-rockchip64 did not require kernel recompilation.
Via USB, but with kernel 4.4.179, it worked if I recompiled the kernel.

code:

  1. diff arch/arm64/configs/4_linux_defconfig.org  arch/arm64/configs/4_linux_defconfig
  2. 1484c1484,1485
  3. < # CONFIG_NET_VENDOR_QUALCOMM is not set
  4. ---
  5. > CONFIG_NET_VENDOR_QUALCOMM=y
  6. > CONFIG_QCA7000=m
  7. 1582c1583
  8. < # CONFIG_USB_NET_QMI_WWAN is not set
  9. ---
  10. > CONFIG_USB_NET_QMI_WWAN=m

"CONFIG_QCA7000 = m" may not be needed.
"CONFIG_NET_VENDOR_QUALCOMM = y" could not be made into a module due to a dependency.

quote:

cat /proc/version
Linux version 4.4.179-gaa7c4263-dirty (root@ASUS-1080n) (gcc version 6.3.1 20170404 (Linaro GCC 6.3-2017.05) ) #1 SMP Wed Sep 30 14:34:52 JST 2020

code:

  1. lsmod
  2. Module                  Size  Used by
  3. qmi_wwan               24576  0
  4. zram                   24576  6
  5. bcmdhd               1224704  0
  6. sg                     45056  0

It worked easily if I set the APN, username and password from NetworkManager.
I didn't try via PCIE-SOCKET-OPI4-4B because I attached Edge TPU as shown in the picture, but it probably doesn't recognize SIM.
