    my modem code is DXUBMF8
    Do I download the Odin flashable modems for Samsung Galaxy S4 - GT-I9500 version and flash it (tick modem instead of PDA) just like updating the firmware ?

    what is the difference with the CWM/TWRP flashable modems for Samsung Galaxy S4 - GT-I9500 version ?

    thanks for bearing with a newbie

    I flashed my 9500 with the Russian firmware 4.3 although I am in Asia

    Good luck with that iT0mmo... MJ8 firmware for Open Austria was only released 12 hours ago!

    Personally, I would be reluctant to flash an MJ8, Android 4.3, modem to your MF8, Android 4.2.2, firmware.

    I would recommend an MF8 modem for your firmware for Asia... which is a big place and includes a huge part of Russia, so there are a couple you can try...

    I9500_DXUBMF8_MODEM

    I9500_DDUBMF8_MODEM

    The above need to be downloaded and the .TAR file extracted and flashed via Odin by following the instructions in post #1 of GALAXY S4 (I9500/I9505) GSM / NON-HLOS - MODEM'S Collection (Odin/CWM/TWRP)


    There are, for the GT-i9500 only, CWM/TWRP flashable .zip files that are also available for those who are rooted and have a custom recovery, such as PhilZ, installed. These can be downloaded to your external SD card and flashed via recovery mode.

    I9500_DXUBMF8_MODEM_CWM

    I9500_DDUBMF8_MODEM_CWM


    Please take the time to read posts #1 and #2 of GALAXY S4 (I9500/I9505) GSM / NON-HLOS - MODEM'S Collection (Odin/CWM/TWRP) as it will answer most of your questions.

    (Note: If you are in China or Hong Kong, there are other, ZC, modems you will need. I have included the DD modem for India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, etc; as this has been shown to work in other parts of Asia as well.)

    I tend to stick to a modem that matches, or is very close to, my firmware and country code usually. For instance, XXUEMKE based ROM and XXUEMKE modem, for the i9505. Bear in mind that your location can have a bearing on which modems will be best for you... XX works fine on European phones but if you are in, say, India then DD is better or DX if you are in Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam, UB for Brazil and so on. See Samsung country codes, here.

    In post #1 and #2 of GALAXY S4 (I9500/I9505) GSM / NON-HLOS - MODEM'S Collection (Odin/CWM/TWRP) you will find a great many modems for the GT-i9500 that are Odin or CWM/TWRP flashable, (N.B. CWM/TWRP modems are only available for the i9500).

    Go into recovery by powering the phone down, and not by using the recovery option from the power menu

    I should have said download, but the point I was making was to power off and not use the power menu as Odin does not flash correctly when the phone is rebooted this way by not powering off completely.
