Welcome to mailing list.

We should have mail list archives set up, at
https://lore.kernel.org/phone-devel/ .

And to have some real news, Droid 4's modem should be supported (using
AT commands over USB) by latest ofono.

commit 07e00b7215cd98aa033f2ebc4ff169662d95d34c (HEAD -> master, ofic/master)

    droid 4: Add probing.

    Probe Droid 4 modem. This should result in basic support working.

I'm using this to keep the USB alive, so that incoming calls and SMSes
working. It also burns power...

# writing to ttyUSB3 eventually crashes the modem
# ttyUSB0 -- works w/o delay for an hour.
while test -e $DEV; do
echo > $DEV
sleep .3

Oh and... I'm still looking for phone running mainline kernel I could
_use_. N900 is close, with exception of voice calls. Droid still waits
for patches to be merged, and needs a bit more work with SMSes (and at
least mixers).
