Thanks but that link is pretty useless for those people who do not speak German. And that's highly likely to be the majority of our forum users. If you wish to share what you did to reach success, we'd all appreciate it. Posting a simple screenshot in Russian? language that says "look I've done it" is not of any value to anybody.

                 </dict>

AppleWWANSupport.kext and AppleWWANSupport1.kext have string 0x413C I'm deleting it

 

3. I move the edited kext from Desktop to /S/L/E in Kext Utility

 

4. /Library/Modem Scripts/Generic GPRS.ccl/Contents/Resources/Base Script.ccl 

just replace by this file

Base Script.ccl.zip

 

5. reboot

You modified 3 files from /S/L/E and 1 modem script to accomplish something that you probably cold done with just one additional codeless kext in /L/E (without any modification of system files).

 

I modified my kext for another Sierra model to mach your ID. I also modified InterfaceMapping to mach the one you posted.

 

vkgDellWireless5630_dim.kext.zip

 

If you want, restore original files that you modified and try to connect with this kext in /L/E instead.

I think that the modification IOSerialFamily.kext is not needed

necessary line exists in AppleWWANSupport.kext and AppleWWANSupport1.kext

but I did all the steps with the link and everything worked and stopped at that

I wrote a post to report that identical modem is working 😃

now I have time for experiments so that everything is thoroughly tested

modem script required in my opinion, I edited CellPhoneHelper.kext for a few days without result
