Issue 106: Support for HTC Dream / Tmobile G1?

Reported by Travis Tabbal, Jun 30, 2010

I tried adding this to the Info.plist, but it doesn't seem to be 
working. Not sure where to go from here. 

OSX 10.6.3

Trying to get USB tethering to work with the G1 on Cyanogen 
firmware. The IDs are what the system profiler reports when the 
phone is set to tether. With that option disabled, I get different 

In /var/log/system.log I see these lines when I connect the G1.

id net.lucid-cake.driver.AJZaurusUSB not found; removing 
Jun 29 16:38:10 Travis-Tabbals-Mac-Netbook com.apple.kextd[10]: 
String/URL conversion failure.

I tried with the installer and installing the kext directly and 
running "touch /System/Library/Extensions" to rebuild the 
kext cache. 

Please let me know if I can assist with further debugging.

can you please load the AJZaurusUSB sources, open a terminal and cd 
to the root of the AJZaurusUSB sources? Then, try

make kextload

and report if it shows errors (you need Xcode installed).

Sorry, it is

make load

and will ask for the admin password (because it runs sudo kextload).

I just now noticed this project after searching for ways to make the 
G1 talk to my Macbook...Wifi is extremely power hungry; bluetooth is 
slow and buggy; usb uses RNDIS.

If anything, I'll test:
A: native RNDIS  with this driver (or is it just CDC-ECM? Nothing is 
too specific on this) 
B: how to modify android-wired-tether to simply use CDC-ECM and not 
RNDIS if this driver does not do RNDIS.

Comment 5 by Nikolaus Schaller, Jul 22, 2010

A: this driver is CDC-Ethernet only (which is the more recommended 
way by USB). It has no RNDIS support.

There has recently been some off-line discussion and it *could* be 
possible to integrate the RNDIS stuff from the Linux gadget driver. 
So I have opened a new "Issue" #117
B: good question...
