This page is a collection of some helpful commands to setup various applications and test their functionality within the dev boards. These tidbits are not specific to any one board but are rather generally useful guides.
MC7455 Baseband Modem mPCIe Card
################################
If you are testing the Sierra Wireless MC7455 with the Nit6QP_MAX, make sure you cover pin 22 with some adhesive film to prevent the modem from resetting over and over. It is okay to cover pin 20 as it is floating anyway. Pin 18 is GND and covering it is not prefered but _may_ be safe to do so.
Pin 22 is the one that is blacked out in this image:
`cover this pin <https://talk.puri.sm/_matrix/media/v1/download/talk.puri.sm/jzwIpANihuiyChonjlLvdLaM>`_
We may need to (unsure yet) cover the USB 3.0 pins as they are PCIe RX TX diff-pairs on the nit6 board:

Modem Firmware Upgrade
----------------------
To upgrade the firmware stop modem manager, unzip `the firmware <https://cloud.puri.sm/apps/files/?dir=/dev/librem5/hardware/baseband_modem/sierra&fileid=20789>`_ and use QMI mode for the update::
$ unzip SWI9X30C_02.24.05.06_Generic_002.026_000.zip
$ systemctl stop ModemManager
