    Anybody know which radio we have, I remember reading before it may be the same as a s3's radio? Im trying something things to get cm10 working for us but radios are not a speciality of mine..

    *Probably not what you were talking about
    Why Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 has the competition on the defensive | ExtremeTech
    4th Paragraph
    Snapdragon S4 is also going to support a wide array of hardware on the chip itself. It has always been Qualcomm’s policy to integrate the cellular modem with the SoC, whereas other manufacturers rely on external components for that. The S4 will support on-die LTE, HSPA+(GSM,WCDMA,UMTS), and CDMA radios — making it the first ever SoC to integrate LTE radio, and also the first 28nm LTE part. That means longer lasting, thinner, lighter devices

    I think you are on the right track; in the about phone info, the baseband is completely unknown...
    I tried flashing two radios so far. First was evo 4g lte - didnt install. Second was galaxy nexus - installed but changed nothing... still unknown. Im thinking it won't be as simple as flashing the baseband. I tried both of these directly on top of the cm10.

    edit:im doubting if the second installed at all. i tried it on the stock deodexed rom and baseband version did not change.

    Yes I will be attempting to flash radios however shabby is right we need a device tree setup. Tomorrow night I will be attempting it after I install Ubuntu on my main drive BC my second drive is faulty. I've never built a device tree but with the available files on github thanks to the 2nd unit recovery creator it may not be too bad. Perhaps I can even find a way to pull our radio so it can be flashed onto our cwm10.

    That sounds like a winner; or a good start at least.

    wow.. you guys are lucky you dont cause any actual hardware damage. radios are very very calculated software. flashing a different galaxy nexus radio on my galaxy nexus would cause me to never get signal again.

    Yes I have read it is very ill advised to flash other radio images as they are not stored in the cm backup and the only way to get it back is flash back with a the stock radio.....

    its more than that man. if i flashed a verizon or gsm radio on my sprint nexus due to the differences in frequencies it would physically destroy it. we had a bunch of people at the launch of teh phone who inadvertently flashed verizon radios (both cdma and LTE) and had to swap their devices as the radio partitions were restored to sprint but were damaged.

    that was teh same make and model of a phone just on a different carrier (thus different LTE freq's. flashing something like a samsung gnexus radio (OMAP 4460) or HTC Evo 4G (QSD8650) on your lg motion (MSM8960) is bound to be all sorts of issues. even if you knew where radio was located and instead of using a cwm flashable zip that is made for their device (and lets say flashing over your SBL3) and you stuck it where it was supposed to go, chances are youd still only do damage...

    Well I pulled the radio.img off our phone but seems were still headed in the wrong direction. We need somebody to setup a device tree and seems we have no one that came do that for us. Well I suppose we made it this far, this fast we can wait a little while longer.

    Did you try to flash this radio over the cm10? Can you do that with an .img file? ive done advanced restore with .img's before, but not a straight zip flash.

    I don't know about this stuff, but if the different phone radios didn't flash & brick your phone, doesn't that mean the bootloader won't allow it and we can't change it until our phones ' bootloader is unlocked?
