The Sony Ericsson Turbo3G USB gadget is one of those flip-flop devices. The first time it is plugged it acts as a flash storage to provide the Windozes/Mac drivers. Installing the gadget in windows, allows to “sniff” the instructions that are sent and replicate them in Linux.

The software that does the job is called:

Using Ubuntu 8.10 and the following configuration

usb_modeswitch -v 0fce -p d0e1 -O 1

was possible to switch to modem mode.

There is plenty of problems with the NM (Network Manager) in 8.10, so a distribution upgrade to 9.04 helped to get modem initialized properly.

Some changes where needed after installing 9.04 to run the 3G modem when having a root console open
