Check Authentication for HiSilicon Devices


HiSilicon devices include commercial terminals and test terminals. Only authenticated test terminals can be

used for test.

After installing the driver, users may open the device manager to check the port. If there is only one or
two ports, then the device is a commercial device.

If all the related ports are well detected, then open the agent and click the second tab page. If
Connected is displayed under Status, the device is authenticated and can be used for test.

Enable Engineering Mode for Quanta D1

To enable engineering mode for Quanta D1, do as follows:

For Windows XP: Connect D1 to the PC. Run HyperTerminal, enter the AT command, and the
system returns response with OK. Enter AT*QMODE=3,1, and then the system returns response
with OK.

For Windows 7: Download HyperTerminal, and refer to the steps described in the Windows XP
environment after installation.

GIS and RCU Data Files Related Problems


1.

Users need to uninstall the previous version of Pilot Pioneer before installing a later version. If GIS is
still abnormal, the possible reason is that the GIS control is not registered successfully. Users may
double click RegComList.exe in the installation path of the pilot pioneer for manual registration.

2.

By default, Pilot Pioneer may save RCU data files in the .ddib format, which can be used for
statistics and analysis. Users may choose Record > Record Configuration, and click Advance to
set whether to save RCU data files.

GIS and RCU Data Files Related Problems


3. Data files in the .ddib format cannot be divided by size currently.
4. After merging/dividing data files, no user-prompt success information is displayed currently.

Attention on Samsung S3 (ADB) Connection to Pilot Pioneer

Pilot Pioneer needs to send commands to the device to enable the USB Network Sharing mode for automatic
device detection. A network adapter will be mapped in the PC system for the device, and the PC system will
perform automatic detection, that is, to load the device. If users connect the device before the device is
completely loaded, no information may be displayed on the interface.

Attention on Samsung S3 (ADB) Connection to Pilot Pioneer

Keep the USB Tethering option disabled before connecting Samsung S3 to Pilot Pioneer and do not
modify it during service test.

If no device is detected, do as follows:

1.

Check if any Android management tool (such as Snap Pea) on the phone is running? Make sure to
turn it off before test.

2.

Check if ROOT software/tool is installed on the Android phone, as the ROOT tool will generate
some dynamic databases that may conflict with those of Pilot Pioneer (such as AdbWinUsbApi.dll,
AdbWinApi.dll, and adb.exe).

If the problem is caused by the installation of ROOT tool, there are two methods to solve the problem.
a.

Uninstall ROOT and restart the PC.

b.

Copy the three dynamic databases mentioned above to the ADB file in the Pilot Pioneer
installation path (\Program Files\DingLi\Pilot Pioneer9.1.*.****\ADB\) to replace the existed ones.

Thank You!
