As I haven't posted here for nearly a month, I will now quote an email I got by a guy I contacted. All copyrights go to him, I haven't had time to test his explanations, but maybe it helps some of you that want their A910 to connect to every wireless network._

I'll try to make some explainations. We can discuss together in order to improve the text and make a correct howto we can put on the web… (contains and form (I'm an old vi dinosaur from 1994 ;) ) + the english, as it's not my mother language…) 4 parts: telnetd, swap, wifi and mackconnectivitypack/fake_dsm
  1. Telnetd/login Motorola didn't install any telnetd nor login. (thanks, Moto :-) Mount your phone as an usb mass storage, then edit [path]/.system/javaCardRegistr
    y and set lines as follow (you can install a dummy java application then adapt the values (IMEI, AppID,…) JavaId must be -1.
[1bf504e3-a1e3-d1e8-b96a-40f3a7f60087]
AppID = {1bf504e3-a1e3-d1e8-b96a-40f3a7f60087}
Args =
Attribute = 2
BigIcon = inetd.png
Daemon = 0
Directory = /mmc/mmca1/scripts
Eraseable = 1
Exec = inetd_start.lin
FixedAllPosition = 0
FixedPosition = 0
GroupID = ezx
IMEI = 353300010213731
Icon = inetd.png
InstalledDate = 2007/6/6
JavaId = -1
LockValue = 0
MassStorageStatus = 1
MpkgFile =
Name = Inetd_Start.lin
OsVersion = 1.0
Shared = 1
Size = 64K
Type = 2
UserID = ezx
Visible = 1

with /mmc/mmca1/scripts/inetd_start.lin

#!/bin/bash
export QTDIR=/usr/lib/ezx
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/ezxlocal/sbin
export PATH=$PATH:/ezxlocal/sbin
my_alert='/usr/SYSqtapp/phone/alertprocess'
my_mid1='/ezxlocal/sbin/done.mid'
cp -f /mmc/mmca1/sbin/inetd.conf /tmp/inetd.conf
echo -n “Starting internet superserver:”
echo -n ” inetd” ; start-stop-daemon —start —quiet —chuid root
—pidfile /var/run/inetd.pid —exec /mmc/mmca1/sbin/inetd
$my_alert -playvol 1 -playfile $my_mid1

/mmc/mmca1/sbin/inetd.conf contains:

telnet  stream  tcp     nowait  root    /mmc/mmca1/sbin/in.telnetd
in.telnetd -L /mmc/mmca1/sbin/login

for the in.telnetd daemon, login exec, those from my A780 are ok, or google search Telnet_Samba_preload.rar on a russian moto site. A780-AddOns.tgz is also very usefull for login and many more (was available on the old motorolafan download section, but no more today) (install without diska sub-directory, into your mmc card)

Then after a A910 reboot, you see into games, a “Inetd_Start.lin” you can activate (hear a sound).

you can connect your linux box (A910 usb in modem mode)

usb 4-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 4
cdc_acm 4-2:1.0: ttyACM0: USB ACM device
usb 4-2: USB disconnect, address 4
usb 4-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 5

echo “AT+mode=13” > /dev/ttyACM0
echo “AT+mode=99” > /dev/ttyACM0

sometimes more than one time (why? :-), until you get something like this in the kernel message (dmesg):

Linux/armv5tel 2.4.20_mvlcee31-mainstone_pxa27x

(none) login: root

MontaVista(R) Linux(R) Consumer Electronics Edition 3.1

No directory /root!
Logging in with home = “/”.

I set a more convenient environment with

/mmc/mmca1/root/start

root@a910 ~ 11:38:16 > cat /mmc/mmca1/root/start
#!/bin/sh
/etc/init.d/ezxenvr.sh
export PATH=$PATH:/mmc/mmca1/.system/bin:/mmc/mmca1/.system/sbin
export
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$QTDIR/lib:/lib:/usr/lib:/usr/lib/ezx/lib:/mmc/mmca1/.system/lib
export EZX_RES_FONT_PATH=/usr/lib/ezx/lib/fonts
eval “`dircolors -b`”
alias ls='ls —color=auto'
export HOME=/mmc/mmca1/root
cd $HOME
export COLUMNS=150
/mmc/mmca1/.system/bin/bash

root@a910 ~ 11:38:22 > cat .bashrc
export PROMPT_COMMAND='echo -ne “33]0;root@910:${PWD/#$HOME/~}07”'
export PS1=”u@a910 w t > “
export HISTFILESIZE=100
export HISTSIZE=100
export HISTCONTROL=ignoreboth
export QTDIR=/usr/lib/ezx
export EZX_RES_FONT_PATH=/usr/lib/ezx/lib/fonts
eval “`dircolors -b`”
alias ls='ls —color=auto'
export HOME=/mmc/mmca1/root
export COLUMNS=150
. /etc/init.d/ezxenvr.sh
export
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$QTDIR/lib:/lib:/usr/lib:/usr/lib/ezx/lib:/mmc/mmca1/.system/lib
alias scp='scp -S /mmc/mmca1/.system/bin/ssh -q'
alias sftp='sftp -S /mmc/mmca1/.system/bin/ssh'
alias l='ls -l'
alias ..='cd ..'
alias cp='cp -v'
alias la='ls -la'
alias ll='ls -lA'

Then, I changed the telnetd and login directory, moving from /mmc/mmca1 to /ezxlocal (11Mb internal A910 storage) so telnetd is no more dependant of the removable microSD.

  1. swapspace I also set a swap space ( no more available on motorolafan) in /mmc/mmca1/.system/java/CardRegistry:
[793bffb3-96f9-d929-bfd7-84e623c514cf]
AniIcon =
AppID = {793bffb3-96f9-d929-bfd7-84e623c514cf}
Args =
Attribute = 4
BigIcon = swapon.png
Daemon = 0
Directory = /mmc/mmca1/.system/swap
Eraseable = 1
Exec = swapon.lin
FixedAllPosition = 0
FixedPosition = 0
GroupID = ezx
IMEI = 35330001*******
Icon = swapon.png
InstalledDate = 2007/6/13
JavaId = -1
MassStorageStatus = 0
MpkgFile =
Name = Swap_on_off.lin
OsVersion = 1.1
Shared = 2
Size = 386K
Type = 2
UserID = ezx
Visible = 1

root@a910 ~ 12:14:25 > cat /mmc/mmca1/.system/swap/swaponoff.sh

#!/bin/sh
SWAPDIR=/mmc/mmca1/.system/swap
SWAPFILE=$SWAPDIR/swapfile
if [ ! -f $SWAPFILE ]; then
     gzip -c -d  $SWAPFILE
fi
if ! grep $SWAPFILE /proc/swaps; then
     swapon $SWAPFILE
     rm $SWAPDIR/OFF
     touch $SWAPDIR/ON
     my_mid1='/usr/data_resource/ringtone/rt_alert_2.mid'
else
     rm $SWAPDIR/ON
     swapoff $SWAPFILE
     touch $SWAPDIR/OFF
     my_mid1='/usr/data_resource/ringtone/rt_alert_5.mid'
fi
my_alert='/usr/SYSqtapp/phone/alertprocess'
$my_alert -playvol 1 -playfile $my_mid1
  1. Wifi The WIFI connection tool /usr/SYSqtapp/wsp/wlanapp fails everytime (UMA stuff? Orange or BT limitation? Grrr…) so the solution is to kill the process when we are connected and continue with normal dhcp request: see the awful script setwifidhcp.lin:
#!/bin/sh
/etc/init.d/ezxenvr.sh
export PATH=$PATH:/mmc/mmca1/.system/bin:/mmc/mmca1/.system/sbin
export
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$QTDIR/lib:/lib:/usr/lib:/usr/lib/ezx/lib:/mmc/mmca1/.system/lib
export EZX_RES_FONT_PATH=/usr/lib/ezx/lib/fonts
/usr/SYSqtapp/wsp/wlanapp >/ezxlocal/wlanapp.log 2>&1 &
pid=`find /proc/ -name exe -ls 2> /dev/null|grep wlanapp|cut -d/ -f3`
connected=0
while [ ${connected} -eq 0 ]; do
     sleep 2
     connected=`grep “Successfully connected to AP”
/ezxlocal/wlanapp.log |wc -l`
done
kill $pid
kill `cat /ram/tmp/dhcpcd-eth0.pid`
rm /ram/tmp/dhcpcd-eth0.pid
dhcpcd eth0
my_alert='/usr/SYSqtapp/phone/alertprocess'
my_mid1='/ezxlocal/sbin/done.mid'
$my_alert -playvol 1 -playfile $my_mid1

Now, the problem is the setting of the dnsproxy process:

cat /etc/dnsproxy.conf
include /ram/tmp/dsmdns.conf
include /ram/tmp/pppdns.conf

Even when I fix a proper value into /ram/tmp/dsmdns.conf, it's not taken into account. By mounting a writable /etc, I can set a working /etc/resolv.conf http://www.courville.org/mediawiki/index.php/EZX#Make_.2Fetc_editable_.26_change_root_passwd_.28more_secure_telnet.29

  1. mackconnectivitypack/fake_dsm

When the wifi link is ok (see iwconfig eth0) I can access internet with native application (ping, telnet,…) but not with web browser, nor native opera nor java opera-mini.

The solution would be to set a fake_dsm route but I did'nt succeed… I used the dsm_spy from clovisKKK to adapt the fake_dsm code, as suggested in the thread http://www.motorolafans.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=9096&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0

B******

As you can easily see, there is still a lot of work to do, and I have to say, I'd prefer to modify the firmware and flash it into the device to get things working without lots of dirty hacks not everybody is able to perform.
