Any good way for us to add modem manager? With Modem manager, can we use a dual-SIM phone and have a SIM for Data and a SIM for calls and texts?
Modem manager works on the pinephone with (VoLTE) calling and such, would it be possible to add support?
The SIM you choose in Settings => Mobile network => Mobile data is used for mobile data, the one you choose in Settings => SIM cards => Calls and messages is used for voice calls and SMS/MMS messages. No VoLTE though (yet).
https://github.com/abferm/modemmanager Any way I can compile this for SailfishOS using the SDK?
This ModemManager thing looks like a piece of NetworkManager which is an alternative to ConnMan, and ConnMan is so deeply rooted into the guts of Sailfish OS, that I would say - yes, you can probably compile it but there’s no way you can actually make any use of it.
Speaking about ConnMan, I find it very difficult to find documentation to use it and configure it.
Are there any good sources/examples of information and use beyond the typical manpage and the sourcecode?
I would like to use Wireguard as an VPN solution in my device, but ConnMan is always interfering and it is not very practical.
Sorry for offtopic.
There seem to be things missing from Connman… Or rather, some stuff is just not set up yet…
I noticed that in the ofono logger app, that some requests seem to come and go from AlienDalvik, so when my Xperia 10 Plus gets here, I want to try to do some changes to the settings and such. I think I can force it to enable, if I enable VoLTE in the base Android before I flash SailfishOS, but if I can do that then it’d be a step in the right direction…
I will also try to find where the VoLTE setting is logged to, and see if I can modify the AOSP stuff in the main installer folder to try to force it to work… If all else fails, I wonder if a “Bind-3G” approach could be made to forcably redirect 3G to 4G LTE… The original modules are in the phone’s files tucked away in the /vendor directory, but I think that there’s not just one answer or workaround to this…
I wish I knew a bit more about the backend… I’m at least halfway decent on understanding some things…
I think I will create a thread for getting VoLTE working.
