Talk:Qualcomm Gobi 2000
I found out a way to get the firmware on a linux-only system. Mine is a debian squeeze, but it should apply to any system.
First, I entered my model number on the Lenovo support page in the right siderow (Select you system / Quick Path) to get to my drivers page. There I clicked to download drivers and on the UMTS drivers. Afterwards I downloaded the "
7xwc42ww.exe" driver package.
With wine I was able to install the driver package, but all it does, was unpacking the GOBI driver setup. This one comes packaged as a
.msi file, so we have to unpack it:
user@machine:~$ wine msiexec /a ~/.wine/drive_c/DRIVERS/WWANQL/Driver/GobiInstaller.msi TARGETDIR=C:\\DRIVERS\\GOBI
The installer quits with errors, but leaves the files on the disk, success. But now there are several subdirectories, in which the files for the specific network operators reside:
|3||Sprint Image||includes special Firmware|
|6||Generic UMTS Image|
|8||Telecom Italia Image|
|12||DoCoMo Image||includes special Firmware|
|UMTS||Default Firmware||the MD5-sum on the page matches these|
I found this out by reading the
ReadMe.rtf, looking into the
UQCN.mbn-Files and apply a little bit of thinking.
Now I'll move the files over and try them out.
So I got the Sprint Image with firmware, how does one flash the Gobi with this firmware?
