Somebody in the thread at some point said:
| apparently there are only two ways of getting IMEI from uboot on a
| - Sending the proper AT command to the Calypso modem
| - Reading it from nand0,4 factory partition
| A.Actually I've discovered that GSM passthrough doesn't work anymore
| Can you confirm this ? Anybody knows what is the possible cause ? (If
| yes, I'll investigate) The gsm_power_on function seems to act
| correctly on GPIO.
Sorry, never used it, no idea. U-Boot support for anything is pretty
much deprecated since we plan to do stuff once in Linux only going on.
| B.I don't know really how to read a file from the factory parrtition
| while working on u-boot. Any suggestion is welcome.
| Thank you for your attention,
You can read the factory partition while in Linux, it's way easier.
