|15||5||Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli||
The modem runs non-free software, which is loaded but not shipped by Replicant.
* When using flight mode, The main CPU has to ask the modem to power itself off.
|17||1||Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli||
* The modem is isolated:
** It doesn't use shared memory with the CPU, instead it uses an "HSIC" bus.
|19||3||Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli||
** We are not aware of it being able to access the GPS, but it woulnd't be surprising if it still could (by having a direct connection to it).
** It has no access to the other CPU peripherals.
