so the Cricket A605 is a ZTE device
you need usb_modeswitch 1.1.9
doesn’t seem to me there is an OpenSuse rpm for this yet
if you go here
Draisberghof - Software - USB_ModeSwitch
and download TWO things: the data package AND the .tar.bz2
under that paragraph is how to install
Josh says install modeswitch first and then data package
you need to be clear where you are downloading them to: eg I use a directory called Downloads
so in the terminal you need to change directory to that; ie cd Downloads and then hit ENTER and you should be INSIDE the Downloads directory; then you can unpack the modeswitch
the command to uppack is
tar -jxvf filename.tar.bz2
when you have done that
when you have unpacked .tar.bz2 you create a directory called usb_modeswitch 1.1.9 (or somesuch) inside Downloads
you need to get INSIDE that
if you start to type usb_m and then hit the TAB key, the terminal should complete the correct entry for you
once inside the directory you type
and get asked for root password; Enter that
… the writing should now be in red, with a HASH sign before it all …
Josh summarises this all by saying
Unpack the source file of the program (who might have thought!). In the newly created directory run as root or superuser:
This installs a small shell script for udev, the larger wrapper script, a config file, the man page and the freshly compiled binary.
Now do the same for the data package. It will install the config files in “/usr/share/usb_modeswitch” ("/etc/usb_modeswitch.d" in earlier versions) and the udev rule file in /lib/udev/rules.d.
You are set already; if your device is known, you should be able to just plug it and use it. If it doesn’t work right away we’ll find out why.
