Hello,

I have a new cellphone, the BQ Aquaris E 4.5 Ubuntu Edition, i.e. it
runs Ubuntu 14.10. 

When I connect this to the USB port of my 11-CURRENT netbook it gives in
/var/log/messages:

Mar 30 10:25:17 c720-r276659 kernel: ugen0.4: <BQ> at usbus0
Mar 30 10:25:17 c720-r276659 root: Unknown USB device: vendor 0x2a47 product 
0x2008 bus uhub0

I'm attaching as well what the ubuntu-phone folks think about their side
of the story.

Any chance that we could get support for it into the if_cdce driver? The
vendorID is not listed in sys/dev/usb/usbdevs until now.

Thanks

        matthias

the phablet-shell command from the phablet-tools package does exactly
that ... (well, not with a full network setup, just with tunneling an
ssh connection through adb)

https://launchpad.net/phablet-tools has the source, it is shell, so should 
theoretically work on your BSD as well ...

for networking the bq supports tethering via a usb device (run the
following in the terminal app or via adb):

android-gadget-service enable rndis 

that will create an usb0 network device on a linux,PC  not sure what BSD
does with it though :)

ciao
