hello patrick!
i have the same problem with the same modem, but in my search i found this:

i have received a new modem which have corrupt Linux, as it does not boot in falcon also on redboot we are not able to execute / load the linux, then i tried to recover the modem by doing the following steps but Modem still stuck on Redboot. Kindly do need full by repairing its software.

Steps performed.

Installation of Linux

1- ZImage E.xtarcted from remote_3XXX-11.0.3.1.pkg file.
2- RedBoot> load -r -b 0x01600000 zImage
3- RedBoot> fis unlock linux
4- RedBoot> fis erase -f 0x50060000 -l 0x00100000
5- RedBoot> fis create -f 0x50060000 -l 0x00100000 -e 0x001600000 -r 0x001600000 -s 0x00100000 Linux
6- Power Recycle the modem.

Root FS recovery:

1- Download RootFs.bin for infinity Modem (3000 series)
2- load RootFS.bin -v -b 0x00020000 -r -m tftp -h 192.168.0.2
3- fis create RootFS -b 0x00020000 -l 0x00E80000 -f 0x50160000 -e 0x01600000 -r 0x50160000

after performing these steps modem still stuck on Redboot but now we are able to execute linux by following commands

1- RedBoot> fis load linux
2- RedBoot> exec -c "root=/dev/mtdblock2 console=ttyS1,9600 single"

After that Modem is in /# mode

Then i tried to recover the modem by installing the following packages (linux_2.4_bsp-11.0.3.1.pkg & remote_3XXX-11.0.3.1.pkg ) and download a good known option file through winSCP. But again i stuck on Red boot every time when modem was rebooted or power recycled.

i know that it's not the same serial but the programmation of redboot seems the same
but i am far in forest and i can't download these bin from a working modem, please can you or someone else send them to me by email: dientou@gmail.com

Hola Companero,

I tried the same steps But still problems is the same, I noticed you used
Code:
-l 0x00e80000
as your Data Length but according to rootfs file size the data length should be the size
Code:
-l 0x1e80000
---> According size on PC. But after uploading it into modem using load command I Calculated it and it appears to be
Code:
-l 0x01e80003
and since I initiated fis create command it says invalid Flash address May I know if flash doesn't have that much capacity to store this or copy this 1e80003 Length or size of data into 50160000 Flash address ? Plz help me...!.
