    If anyone wants to try this method below....this may or may not work, not an expert, so make sure to always backup before doing any flashing. Make sure the file is in the location you're running adb and fastboot from.

    I don't have access to a computer with ADB and fastboot right now.

    Download the radio image here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3c_enS_FZ-_bGVZbjlFTlJRaU0/view?usp=sharing

    Open up ADB and once you have the terminal or command line open run the command "adb devices" to make sure your devices is detected by adb.

    Type "adb reboot bootloader". This will reboot your device to fastboot mode.

    Once in fastboot type: fastboot flash radio radio.img

    Once its done type: fastboot reboot recovery

    In recovery wipe dalvik and cache and then reboot.

    Be VERY careful with any radio stuff. Not joking . Seen way too many bad results in this forum alone.

    Again, anything to do with radios is not to be taken lightly.

    If you want the update .. Unroot , install latest update, re-root through adb..kingroot no longer works after new update.

    Phone works, still getting pesky notification because I believe that the update also updates the build.prop?
