This time I am not announcing something but want to ask a question: is there a driver for the Nexus 7 3G/UMTS/HSPA module/chip for Linux?
Here is what I could gather so far: according to some sources the WWAN chip in the Nexus 7 is an XMM6260 aka X-GOLD 626. There is a thread with more in-detail information about this chip: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1483053
Furthermore, I could find something that looks like the source code of a Linux kernel module for this chip: https://review.tizen.org/git/?p=kernel/linux-2.6.36.git;a=blob;f=drivers/misc/modem/xmm6260.c Unfortunately, it seems that this requires two additional binaries (xmm6260-boot and xmm6260-dump) which I couldn’t fine anywhere.
So, the question: is there some way we can get this chip to work (specifically on Nexus 7) with a “standard” Linux kernel/distribution?
