Open terminal and give command –

If you get some output, fine. You can go ahead. (Else your Kernel is not ready. It means it require additional steps to enable USB module upgrade/recompile your Linux Kernel)


Give this second command in terminal as Super user.

# ln –s /dev/ttyACM0 /dev/mobile

Please note that 0 in ACM0 is ZERO (Number) and not O (character).


Give third command as super user :

# chmod a+rw /dev/mobile


Open gedit as super user, copy paste following code and save it as mobiles.rules file in /etc/udev/rules.d folder :

Content: BUS=="usb" SYSFS{product}=="Qualcomm CDMA Technologies MSM*" KERNEL=="ttyACM*" SYMLINK=="mobile" MODE=="666"
