Re: WWAN Fibocom L850-GL and Linux support

Hi @abrasive,

 

I've been able to run the script on P43s after disabling secure boot, however I don't get module working. E.g. it doesn't register in network and ATD*99# in terminal responses with ERROR

If AT+CFUN? returns 4 it is probably the FCC lock system in place. There is a workaround for this in the Github README.

Thank you for the excellent solution. Fibocom L850-GL was finally able to logon network on ThinkPad P43s! Awesome!

There are a lot of step by step instructions but they are all deleted by Lenovo, claiming FCC requirement. But CFR does not limit end user to modify radio below 1W.
