yesterday i tried for hours to get the 3G connection work with my HUAWAI USB stick E1550 - but without success.to have 3G connection is for me an essential function for a mobile device - and as it seems, nobody here has succeeded to get this working with an apad...what i did:- turned off WLAN- enabled USB host function in system setting- pluged in huawai 3G stick in the lower usb portnow he found network!- i opened the NC manager - here it showed that 3G is working and then pushed connect - after a while i got the information like: connection failed- the interesting thing: i've locked the screen and here was the 3G provider information like: CHINA TELEKOMthen i edited my APN settings from my provider bob. at (provider from austria) (which are 100% correct and tried on another device):
Name: bobAPN: bob.atNutzername: [email protected]Password: pppMCC: 232MNC: 11dial up: *99#
tried to connect again in NC manager - connection failed!next thing was to look at the apns-conf.xml on apad in /etc/system - i know, that i had problems on my HTC magic (G1) to manually add theAPNs, i could save it, but android didn't take it. therefore i had to put a new apns-conf.xml on my G1. (did that with amon ra recovery image).this is the apns-conf.xml in apad (only two entrys, and no entry with my APN!!):
- <apns version="6"> <apn carrier="Android" mcc="310" mnc="995" apn="internet" user="*" server="*" password="*" mmsc="null" /> <apn carrier="TelKila" mcc="310" mnc="260" apn="internet" user="*" server="*" password="*" mmsc="null" /> </apns>
then i created my own apns-conf.xml like this: (extract)
<apn carrier="o2 UK Postpay" apn="wap.o2.co.uk" user="O2wap" pass="password" mmsc="http://mmsc.mms.o2.co.uk" mmsproxy="193.113.200.195" port="8080" mcc="234" mnc="10" /> <apn carrier="o2 UK payandgo" apn="payandgo.o2.co.uk" user="Vertigo" pass="password" mmsc="http://mmsc.mms.o2.co.uk" mmsproxy="193.113.200.195" port="8080" mcc="234" mnc="10" /> <apn carrier="ICE Celular" apn="icecelular" type="default" user="" pass="" /> <apn carrier="Vodafone PT" mcc="268" mnc="01" apn="net2.vodafone.pt" user="vodafone" password="vodafone" server="" mmsc="null" type="default" /> <apn carrier="Vodafone PT-MMS" apn="mms.vodafone.net" proxy="" port="" user="vas" password="vas" server="" mmsc="http://mms/servlets/mms" mmsproxy="213.30.27.63" mmsport="8799" mcc="268" mnc="01" type="mms" /> <apn carrier="tmn internet" mcc="268" mnc="06" apn="internet" server="*" type="default" /> <apn carrier="mms tmn" apn="mmsc.tmn.pt" user="tmn" password="tmnnet" server="*" mmsc="http://mmsc" mmsproxy="010.111.002.016" mmsport="8080" mcc="268" mnc="06" type="mms" /> <apn carrier="Optimus Internet" apn="umts" server="*" type="default" /> <apn carrier="Optimus MMS" apn="mmsc" server="*" mmsc="http://mmsc:10021/mmsc" mmsproxy="62.169.66.5" mmsport="8799" type="mms" /> <apn carrier="Vodacom" mcc="655" mnc="01" apn="internet" user="" password="" server="" mmsc="null" type="default" /> <apn carrier="Vodacom-vlive!" proxy="196.006.128.012" port="8080" mcc="655" mnc="01" apn="vlive" user="" password="" server="" mmsc="null" type="default" /> <apn carrier="Vodacom-MMS" apn="mms.vodacom.net" proxy="" port="" user="" password="" server="" mmsc="http://mmsc.vodacom4me.co.za/" mmsproxy="196.6.128.13" mmsport="8080" mcc="655" mnc="01" type="mms" />
after this i tried to push that file on my apad with adb:
adb devicesadb remountadb push apns-conf.xml /system/etc
then i got error, that this is read only file system...same error occured on my HTC Magic, but there i could copy the file with an signed update.zip through recovery...i really think, that the problem with the connection is in the APN configuration.... hope someone can help me to push that apn config xml file to my apad
for further tests --- or someone has other ideas to get 3G work...thanks,rodnheli

Since /system is cramfs, a readonly file system, it doesn't matter if you're root or not. You simply can't change anything under /system on the pad. Only way to do that is to create your own (edited) /system image and flash the whole thing over

Hy everyone,please read here about my tests with HUAWEI E160-Stick (page 2).http://www.slatedroid.com/index.php?topic=112.15Didn't get it working till now... maybe the APN workaround do the trick ??!!So how to root the apad ?Or maybe there will be patch or something from chip3c (http://hiapad.com) for other HUAWAI - Sticks, because a Huawei EG162G seems to work ;)So I think (hope) it's not impossible to get the E160 working with the apad.Please keep on trying !!Greetings,Oliver

Which Rom are you using? I am trying to use a Huawei e165g with the 5.1 newest rom and get connection failed in NC. Interestingly if I go to add a custom APN the settings app crashes completely when i press "add apn" does this happen to anyone else? Perhaps I should downgrade to version 4 and see if that lets me add an APN?edit: grammar
