Installing Huawei E3372s-153 on macOS 10.12 Sierra_7_How to reconnect

Installing Huawei E3372 On macOS 10.12 Sierra

Huawei Logo 151x151A Huawei E3372 / Telekom Speedstick LTE V mobile broadband modem USB stick is easily installed on macOS 10.12 Sierra without using Mobile Partner software and despite Apple’s System Integrity Protection ‘csrutil’. Just use the following work around to get your Huawei E3372s-153 / T-Com Speedstick LTE V running on macOS 10.12 Sierra. This tweak also applies to Huawei E3276, Huawei K3765-HV (Vodafone K3765-HV) and any other Huawei mobile broadband modem like Huawei E160, Huawei E173, Huawei E3331, Huawei E3531, Huawei E3533 and Huawei K5150 (Vodafone K5150-H). If you also have a Windows 8 / 8.1 or Windows 10, you just follow the Windows 8 / 8.1 instructions for Huawei K3765

I conducted the installation with the following set up:

  • MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, Early 2016) with macOS 10.12 Sierra beta 5 installed.
  • Huawei E3372s-153 / Telekom Speedstick LTE V (LTE FDD : Cat4 DL:150Mbps/UL:50Mbps @20M BW, UMTS: DCHSPA+:42/5.76Mbps;21M/5.76Mbps;14M/5.76M, HSUPA:7.2M/5.76M, 2G: EDGE packet data service of up to 236.8kbps) with micro SD slot and two hidden connectors for external antenna (Specifications Huawei E3372):
  • Download Huawei Mobile Connect Driver for Mac, update for MacBook air (MobileConnectDriver for Mac Book Air 2013, 2013-08-31, 2015-02-28, software version
  • Notes:
    • For software updates click here and search for ‘Mac‘.
    • Mobile Partner for Mac OS X is working on Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan if parts of the System Integrity Protection (csrutil rootless) are disabled during installation. Nevertheless, I describe an alternative way to connect the E3372 without the Mobile Partner Software.

The work around to install Huawei E3372 on macOS 10.12 Sierra without Mobile Partner Software is as follows:

Installing a Huawei E3372 / T-Com Speedstick LTE V mobile broadband modem USB stick on macOS is easily done by using the Huawei Mobile Connect Driver and the Mac’s built-in network preferences after disabling System Integrity protection ‘csrutil’. Mobile Partner software is not needed!

Stay tuned! 😉

    MOBILE_CONNECT.dmg->Mobile (right-click, Show Package Contents)->Contents->Resources->MobilePartner.mpkg (right-click, Show Package Contents)->Contents->Packages->MobileConnectDriver.pkg (install it)

    And the same for Mobile Partner.pkg (add the icon into dock) and HWNetMgr.pkg

    Hi, This solution, and other like it haven’t worked for me yet, using a Hauwei E3531 with Claro in Nicaragua. Upgraded to OSX 10.12.3 and tried a few drivers with csrutil disabled on two different MacBook Pros. When I open Network Preferences to add a service the Hauwei modem never appears in the interface. It also never appeared using the Mobile Partner driver for 10.12 I downloaded from them. I even added a profile in the app and it wouldn’t connect. Thanks for your advice! – Tiff
