    How to enable support for USB tether from phone

    Wow now I feel like an idiot lol. Apparently just rebooting enough times with the phone connected caused the modules to load. It now shows up as usb0 in ifconfig. So now I just need to implement the bridge and ttl mod and i should be good to go. Sorry for wasting your time.
  2. I am trying to set up a Orange Pi Zero to use as a small NAT/ Bridge Device. I want to use an Android phone in USB tether mode to give its 4g connection to an interface on the opi zero then use a network bridge to join the 4g connection to the lan port, also the opi zero is gonna run a small section of code on the USB interface that changes the TTL of all packets through the interface. On my linux mint box the script looks like pkexec sysctl net.ipv4.ip_default_ttl=65 && echo 65 | pkexec tee /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_default_ttl but i am running into issues with the very first part, that is getting my phone native USB tether to be recognized as an interface in the kernel. I understand that a kernel module, I believe g_ether, needs to be installed to get this functionality. All the posts I have seen use this module to make the opi run as the HOST and not the client. Also i am new to modifying the kernel in this way so if someone knows how to do it on this distro it would be greatly appreciated. System info: ARMBIAN 5.65 stable Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS 4.14.84-sunxi Output of lsusb of the phone when in tether mode Bus 003 Device 004: ID 0e8d:2004 MediaTek Inc.
