My SIM card is not recognised in the latest image of Replicant. My SIM card worked fine on the official Samsung ROM. I installed every single build of Replicant that is supported by my device, but none of them recognised my SIM card. I cannot install LineageOS, as the model of my device, t03g, is not supported by it.

I changed the permissions, which were wrong, to those mentioned here:, but that did not fix the issue.

I also have the same line in my radio log as in this post:


I'm running Trisquel in a virtual machine in VirtualBox. Due to issues with how VBox does USB passthrough, I cannot use adb to connect to my phone. Instead I use Android File Transfer in the host (macOS).

I now have full adb access via macOS.

I solved the SIM card issue by installing another custom ROM (from the XDA Developers website) and then re-installing the latest image of Replicant.

Many thanks for this feedback Hephaestus. Would you kindly be able to provide us with more details on this ? Which custom ROM ?
