Huawei-hilink-status


(Dave Howorth) #1

I’ve just noticed that in my /home/pi directory there is a sub-directory called huawei-hilink-status. Is this directory supposed to be there, and if so what is it?

I’m a bit concerned after all the recent brouhaha about Huawei gear.

So it’s supposed to be there?

I have it on my build.

@glyn.hudson Can the folder be removed? if so are they any other files that also need to be removed.

Sure, it can be removed if you’re not using a hi-link 3G dongle.

The folder just contains a python script which gets the current status of a hi-link 3G dongle. It’s very harmless. Take a look at the code yourself:

It’s safe to remove this folder if you wish.
