Not only does this fix allow me to use MBIM on a Dell Wireless 5808e
(branded Sierra Wireless EM7355)...
I now seem to be able to use MBIM directly from a cold boot, without
ever switching to the QMI configuration. And for that matter, the QMI
configuration no longer seems to require the FCC Auth command; the modem
goes directly to an online state even if ModemManager is disabled at
startup. I have disconnected the laptop from both AC and battery for 10
minutes and then this still works. I'm quite confident this was not
possible three weeks ago.
Was this a Verizon over-the-air firmware update perhaps? Is anyone else
with this modem noticing this too?
