    Here is a zip file I got from xInterloperx that I modified for use with the Virgin Mobile Victory. It is designed to backup your modem into a flashable zip file, and then install the stock modem (ripped from my phone).

    This has not been tested, only those with non-working modems (you cannot connect to 3g/4glte) should attempt this!

    But no worries . I got two replacements in one day ! The first one I received had a faulty vibrator (lolol laugh it up) so I took it back and got another free of charge ! Now I just need to make a backup to keep on my computer. What would be the best way to do this?

    Once rooted, open Terminal Emulator and type in the following to backup your modem to your sdcard:
    Code (Text):
    1. dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p12 of=/sdcard/EFS_Backup/modemst1.img
    2. dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p13 of=/sdcard/EFS_Backup/modemst2.img
    3. dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p1 of=/sdcard/EFS_Backup/modem.img
    I'll make a version of xInterloperx's backup/replace script that will just backup, and add it to the OP. That way you can just flash it and it will create the backup in a flashable zip format rather than just the raw dumps. I would still backup the raw dumps to your computer, as this is still untested on a Virgin Mobile Victory.

    Sounds like your problem all along has been with Odin. Try uninstalling it then reboot your PC and then re-install it from the links in the sticky at the top of these forums. While your at it, I would suggest you do the same with your Samsung drivers.
