Quectel Modem Flash Tool V5.1

Post by Didneywhorl » Sun Feb 07, 2021 10:13 am

This is the latest firmware flash tool that I know of for Quectel modems: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1wimGfO ... sp=sharing

You will want the latest Quectel PC drivers as well: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1GD0UBm ... sp=sharing

Linux: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1RVsQAp ... sp=sharing

Mac: :shrug: ;)




Install the drivers, then reboot.

Plug your modem into your computer via USB adapter, and give it time to load up the drivers for it and recognize/assign all ports.

Run the Qflash_5.1.exe app and select the proper port for the modems DM port. (Device Manager for Windows, or get the Huawei modem terminal)

Choose the firmware file that you need.

Flash away.

I'm getting an error.

"Fail, Tool and Firmware Path have space".

The Firmware and the QFlash are in the same folder. What causes this error?
