I think it is, we've had this device with the same problem here previosly, see viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2989
The response from cmds to LUN#0 is weird there also.

Re: Modeswitch not working while booting (Debian 11) but when re-plug the device

Ok, since the fault condition remains once it has appeared then I guess the problem is not in usb_modeswitch so you'll have to isolate it and find what it depends on. Does the dongle switch correctly on another host (hardware)? On another linux kernel version or another distro? An eject sequence in ...

Re: Modeswitch not working while booting (Debian 11) but when re-plug the device

You are getting a libusb timeout error (-7) for the first two of the four eject messages and it is the first two which are essential for switching your dongle. What happens if you do the cmd: sudo usb_modeswitch -W -K -v 0bda -p 1a2b after you had the switch failure when dongle is plugged in at boot...

Re: E3372h-320 (update 2020 version of E3372) automatically switches itself into ethernet mode

Why is this modem always automatically going into 14db? Most likely because its firmware is made to do that.. It might be intended to be used for Apple or Android. I would let it install as an eth device, pull an IP from it and open a browser to the built-in web server (at the dongles gateway IP) a...

Re: E3531 comes as E3372 usb_modeswitch

The interface composition of 12d1:14dc is and has always been an eth interface pair and a storage interface for the TF-card, there has never been any serial interfaces in it. Main reason for that is eth does not have a command language/protocol so there is no need for a serial AT-cmd interface. The ...

Re: E3531 comes as E3372 usb_modeswitch

12d1:14dc is a USB Id after a device has been switched, this Id is used by many different Huawei devices. lsusb does not read the model string from the dongle, it is taken from a linux usb Id database which contains the first known device using that Id. Don't worry too much about it, it is only a co...

Re: FRITZ!WLAN Stick AC860 switches very slowly

I see from your log that this is a usb_modeswitch version where parts has been rewritten by Ubuntu developers, they have tried that for almost ten years and every version of theirs has introduced new bugs. Your log says that "Device is in install mode.", that is what it should be for usb_m...

Re: Huawei E3372 USB Modem Problem switching

So, you don't think there is any solution to my problem here? Without changing from VM to hardware. Thanks I have no idea, I don't run things under VM's for the simple reason that they are just another layer that can only cause problems. It is difficult to 100% emulate hardware in software..

Re: Huawei E3372 USB Modem Problem switching

The verbose output from usb_modeswitch is as what is expected from a successful switch sequence, the old device is gone. usb_modeswitch has sent the switch message, the modem has received it and taken action. I can only see two possible reasons why you don't get a new device afterwards, either the m...

Re: Multiple connections on Android (bonded network)

A widget like pppwidget is not allowed to create lan devices in Android so the reason it can work at all is to take over an already created device like the VPN device. So, sorry but it is not possible. Please be also aware that pppwidget was created to bring mobile broadband into wifi-only Android p...

Re: Huawei E3372 USB Modem Problem switching

usb_modeswitch is made to run under linux, it is not made to run under FreeBSD unix which pfSense runs on. Some users has successfully used usb_modeswitch with pfSense but that may be modem or pfSense version dependent, there has recently been a couple of reports where pfSense seems to dislike the t...
