Bug #2187: ofono: not all modems do what they should
ofono: Gobi modem refuses to set Online=true
/gobi_1 has an Online property but errors when set to true.
Hence it does not go online.

The problem was the extra firmware of the gobi module.
We're using now:

`qmicli -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 --dms-get-operating-mode` showed with wrong firmware also:

The new firmware fixed the Online=true issue;
(other problems are discussed in separate issues.
The Gobi now registers successfully. It does send SMS but then thinks it was unsuccessful, so resends N times, all being delivered to the recipient. It does receive SMS but omits the ofono Dbus signal that an SMS was received.

I have the same issue in my local PC.
I am using the ones from https://github.com/jolicloud/linux-firmware/tree/master/gobi. These are the ones coming with package "gobi-firmware" from AUR in archlinux and are listed too in https://osmocom.org/projects/quectel-modems/wiki/Gobi_modems. Are those the correct ones? Which tool are you using to generate the hashes you showed in your previous comment?
