Ovation Mc760 - Virgin Mobile


Vulture
 Share

Recommended Posts

Received my pineapple today and was trying to get the MC760 USB device to work. Looking through the forums I have verified the following:

1) The device is activated and working on a windows PC

2) The device has been attempted both directly plugged in, and via a powered USB hub

3) The pineapple is connected to the wall

When connecting the USB device directly to the pineapple lsusb reports the address as "Bus 001 Device 017: ID 1410:6002 Novatel Wireless" when plugged in via the powered USB hub I get "Bus 001 Device 015: ID 1410:5031 Novatel Wirelss"

The 3g.sh script appears to only be configured to work when the device is reading ID 1410:5031.

When running connected to the USB hub and I run 3g.sh through the terminal I get the following:

root@Pineapple:/www/pineapple/3g# ./3g.sh

I see two lines that may be causing the issue:

AND

The Product appears to be missing, is this normal on the MC760?

I will update the git repository if possible tomorrow, but here is the issue:

pineapple/3g/3g.sh

Line 59 should read:

*1410:6002* | *1410:5031*) echo "Novatel MC760 (Virgin Mobile) detected. Attempting mode switch"

Line 78 has an error:

sleep 3; insmod usbserial vendor=-x1410 product=0x6002

should be:

sleep 3; insmod usbserial vendor=0x1410 product=0x6002

The first is an enhancement really, it fixes the MC760 cards for when they have a micro-sd card in them and plugged into the primary usb port. The second prevents the MC760 virgin mobile device from functioning and is just a minor mistype.

Looking forward to adding to this community, it seems to be expanding rather quickly.

Great catch, thanks! This is indeed the device I bought for this purpose and haven't had opportunity to figure out why things wouldn't work!!

Any idea if these fixes will now allow us to use the MC760 Virgin device as a 3G dongle, AND mount the microsd to be used as storage?

That would be 100% pure, uncut win if possible.

Oh yes it does :)

Mine keeps mounting as /dev/sda1 (I have a single Ext4 partition on the micro-sd). Just edit /etc/fstab and change the /usb mount to /dev/sda1 and it will mount to /usb

If you don't want to restart just issue "mount -a" after you make sure /usb is not mounted to a USB stick.

Working on USB Alfa AWUS036NH support now, so we can have the ability to have multiple wireless connections....

Brilliant, eternal thanks, that's a HUGE leap in the right direction!! I can't wait to try this out!!

And getting that alfa support in there would incredible and exactly where I'd love to see this go!! Being able to use the 036 for deauths leaving the MK4 free to Karma the aftermath would be absolutely incredible, thanks again for the inspired work!!

Let me know how yours works I keep getting drops evey 10-20 min which seem to be from some sort of lockup on the USB command that binds the adapter. I will post some details later but it has been very hit or miss.

Also the speed is pretty bad but this is mainly for remote access not for ICS.

Made the changes, still see the error about line 113 firewall not found, but everything else looks good. Product is found and identified. I still don't have Internet though. Can't ping 8.8.8.8 or reveal any outside IP. Anything else we can do to verify this baby works? I do have a micro sd card in it, getting the 1410:6002 ID. I'm kind of skeptical this will work without configuring the MDM or MSID of the Virgin Modem account somewhere?

Thanks for all the help..

I have the same modem and same provider as well as the same problem. As you may have seen in my other threads I can't get it to work. Just mentioning it here since this thread popped up on top.

Guys, post your log information on when it tries to start the connection you should see something like:

so which 3g usb dongles is everyone using at the moment?

Just an update the MC760 with micro-sd is working amazingly now that I have it:

1) Plugged into a powered USB port

2) Applied the latest github patches which will be in the next firmware release but are detailed in this post.

If you do not use a powered USB hub, the connection will drop anywhere from 5 min to 30 min, quicker if there are more read/write events to the sdcard.

Hey - Thanks for any help you can offer. I have what I believe is a similar issue with the Novatel MC760 (though I apologize in advance if I'm missing something easy - I'm relatively new to the Pineapple).

The excerpt from the log you requested is below, and the wan2 device is no longer present when attempting the ifconfig command (3g-wan2: error fetching interface information: Device not found).

Also - The device works fine when connected directly to my linux PC.

I will check my logs when I get home but that looks like a good connection right up until the alarm is thrown, I have not seen that before. Which network are you on, t-mobile?

Also try booting your device and let it settle for 5 min then plug your mc760 in and execute the /www/pineapple/3g/3g.sh manually.

I have issues with the mc760 working properly if booted with the device plugged in. This is a known issue by the rom developer and will be addressed after some of the more immediate items.

Virgin Mobile (Sprint). Thanks for the suggestion - Will try it and keep you posted.

Hey - Tried that, but am unfortunately having the same issue. Will keep researching/working to figure something out. If you have any other thoughts or suggestions, they are of course very much appreciated.

One last thing... I did notice that the device did appear to successfully connect twice in the past few hours (dozens of attempts). The connection only stayed active for 0.3 and 0.2 minutes respectively.

Do you have the mc760 directly connected or is there a USB hub you have connected. I found mine was very difficult to work with prior to using the powered hub.

Unfortunately (and fortunately), that seemed to be the problem. Works fine with a powered hub (fortunately, and unfortunately). Now to sit down, and figure out the best way to keep all of this equipment portable.

Thanks again for your help!
