No need to type AT+CMUX or anything, things start in ts 27.010
mode from the start for the hardware. Then the serdev driver
layer handles doing GSMIOC_SETCONF.
Gotcha. That makes things a bit easier.
I have not played with GSMIOC_ENABLE_NET, I thought that needed
support on the modem side as well, but maybe not?
It requires the modem to support Raw IP. Many (most?) AT command based
modems do these days, no idea about your hardware.
Would GSMIOC_ENABLE_NET make things easier from ofono
point of view?
Depends on your definition of easier. The real reason for
GSMIOC_ENABLE_NET is speed/efficiency. In a typical 27.010 / 27.007
compliant modem you'd setup N logical AT command channels where N = 1
(minimum, but can be more if you want) + max number of active contexts.
Typically modems support 3+ of these. Once a context is activated,
you'd switch the channel into data mode via AT+CGDATA (e.g. for PPP or
raw IP) and start shoving your network packets on that channel in the
How are you handling data connections? PPP? Or is there some other
protocol to transfer packets back and forth?

We have a standard kernel GNSS API now :) And we have /dev/gnss0
already working for droid 4.
That's great. But I think my recommendation still stands. You want GPS
state to be synchronized with the overall modem state, etc...

Hmm right, good point. Anyways that's how the SMS gets sent and
received in the US for droid 4 currently.. The file I was looking at
is src/cdma-sms.c and the only thing to do there is the PDU coding
I believe the utilities you mention should be good enough to decode the
basics. I think someone has even tested these on a real network at some
point. But the people working on CDMA have not contributed since ~2011,
so I have no idea about the state of that code. I was considering
removing it given that CDMA is essentially defunct (or will be in a few
