Verizon Jetpack 4G – Novatel mifi4620LE

MiFi4620LE

 

  1. Connect Jetpack to computer via micro USB cable
  2. Install Official MiFi4620LE Windows PC Driver from Verizon website 
  3. Verify in Device Manager (devmgmt.msc) that drivers are installed correctly and you have Novatel mifi4620L device under modem. If not, you will see unknown Novatel device reported with yellow exclamation mark, search online for correct drivers.
  4. Download latest version of DC Unlocker 2 to be able to confirm the status
  5. Important: Remove Verizon SIM card otherwise it won’t connect and show the details about locked/unlocked
  6. Open DC Unlocker 2 and select:
    • Manufacturer = Novatel
    • Model = Auto detect (recommended)
  7. Click on Detect button to start device scan and you should get similar output as below:
===================================================================
DC - Unlocker 2 Client 1.00.1396
Detecting modem :

selection :
manufacturer - Novatel
model - Auto detect (recommended)

Found Applications port COM3
Found Diagnostics port COM4

Found modem         : MiFi4620L
Model               : MiFi4620L
IMEI                : 990000xxxxxxxxxxx
Firmware            : 3.20.16
Compile date / time : Feb 11 2013 22:07:46
Chipset             : Qualcomm MDM9600
NAND Flash          : MT29F1G08ABBDAH4   
SIM Lock status     : unlocked

===================================================================

 

MiFi should be unlocked, if it’s not and you want to unlock it: you will need to register and buy credit for DC – Unlocker.

The one I found was unlocked, so I didn’t test the unlock steps reported in the unlock Guide.

BTW: You don’t need to do firmware update steps as device is old, so it’s probably already updated to latest version of firmware and it will error out if you try to push same firmware version.

Mining with Azure Batch

Updated on 4/28/2018 with new PoW for Monero7 and XMR-Stak miner

 

Azure Batch and Pool VM

  • Connect to http://portal.azure.com
  • Create a new Batch Account (free) and associated Storage Account with pool allocation mode “Batch Service” so you don’t need Key Vault
  • Open Batch Account and select Pools
  • Add a new pool with the following settings
    • Image Type = Marketplace (Linux/Windows)
    • Publisher = Canonical
    • Offer = Ubuntu Server
    • Sku = 16.04-LTS
    • Node Size =
      • F16 – XMR Monero
      • NC6 – ETH Ethereum
    • Mode = Fixed
    • Low priority = 3
    • Resize timeout = 90 minutes
  • Wait for resize operation if succeed or not as we are using Low Priority VM so it may fail if Azure has other higher priority VM
  • Click on Nodes and review if VM is there
  • Select the VM and verify Overview = Idle
  • Click on Connect and add a new user with Administrator privilege
