    *FIXED* but *Un-tested* VM SGS3 Stock Modem (Odin Flashable)


    Okay Guys... I messed around in adb for a while and fianlly found which partition block to pull in order to "Rip" my stock VM modem.bin :D Then... I made it into a Tar archive that Odin will like....
    And...
    You should be able to Flash it and fix problem associated with Odin Flashed Sprint RUU's...

    Trying to find somebody who already flashed a sprint modem by mistake and wants to try going back to stock without waiting for a firmware release.... at the risk of the phone of course...

    Ever seen a documentary about Nile Crocodile when the Wildebeest have to migrate across the river, theyre all standin at the bank sayin "you go".. "no YOU go first" moo moo then one brave lil dude jumps in and the herd follow :)
    Its beautiful... pity the first lil dude usually gets bit straight on the nose and spun around like a rag-doll lol
    *note to self:* terrible metaphor :beer:

    i think crocodile would hurt too :)
    Theres no noobs on this site bro. Noobs dont even think to use android forums :beer:

    Different modem/radio firmware will make your signal and data speeds better, worse or the same but this thread is for peeps who have flashed the wrong one on their phone and want the right one back. If you havent changed yours, you dont need this one :)

    What previous steps did you take that led to you not being able to send text messages?

    I activated it through the phone. I've rooted it trying to fix it. It was doing it before that. I've tried a factory reset (before rooting) updatibg the prl and pulling the battery for 2 hrs. Nothing worked.
