it worked for me but my texting still doesnt work
I haven't flashed anything other than rooting. It started doing this out of the box.
Has this modem file worked for anyone yet? ?Still trying to get back to stock!!
in the process of uploading a virgin mobile stock rooted non activated GSIII CWM backup at the moment. as of this post still has over an one and half left. as per an odin flash able or otherwise dont ask me.
Thanks but I still need a stock modem to get back to full stock !
This thread contains a stock modem...
Has not work for me yet flashed in Odin failed!
from what g6odman said the modem files are stored in a separate partition so unless what you flashed re-wrote them then all you should have to do is fix your APN's to address a mms issue. he said he would need a logcat of mms error issues to see what's going on
Flashed sprint stock rooted rom/modem/kernel from sxtp Site!
Threw Odin on my pc!!
Okay I'll try to make another....

Just want to say thank you so much your new modem file worked gueat put you bin file in a md4 flashable modem zip work first time flashed your backup am I'm finally back to full stock rom thank so much dud!!!!!
How did you get it to work? everytime I flash through odin it fails. You said that you replaced the modem file with a flashable clockworkmod md4 file then flashed?
Download a flashable modem for Sprint. Open it up with 7zip and replace the modem.bin and save it. Flash it and enjoy.. hopefully
WHen I open up the modem.tar.md5 file it says NON-HLOS.bin thats what you mean correct? Drop that into a cwm flashable zip then flash in cwm?
Edit: Doing that worked however I still don't have any data. Any suggestions?
I've put this inplace of bin in sprint flashable zip an it works!!!
Hello. I ran into a problem when I rooted my phone. My phone works fine, except it doesn't get any cell signal (I'm getting a circle with a slash through it in the status bar). I did nothing other than root my phone, so I don't know what's wrong with my phone. I posted about it in the root thread (http://androidforums.com/showthread.php?t=729490). I believe that the problem could be solved by flashing the stock rom and flashing this stock modem, but I don't know how to flash a modem along with a rom. Could someone please tell me how to flash the modern along with the stock ROM? Help would be much appreciated! Thanks!
You are correct. You will need to first flash the stock rom and then the stock modem.
If you haven't done so already, go ahead and flash the stock rom flashable zip with your custom recovery which can be found here: http://androidforums.com/virgin-mob...ck-unrooted-rom-flashable-zip-cwm-backup.html It will be the second download file. It will be listed as "flashable zip". Download it to your sd card and flash it with your custom recovery.
After you have flashed the stock rom, you will then want to flash the stock modem which is in the first post of this thread.
Here is how to flash the modem listed here in the guide:
First, make sure you have installed the Samsung USB drivers onto your computer that are found here: Samsung_E4GT_USB_Driver_v1_3_2360_0.exe
Odin3_v3.04 can be found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2133496
Download the VMSGS3 modem in .tar format.
Turn off your smartphone
On your PC, launch the ODIN.exe file you unzipped from the prerequisites.
On ODIN, click the Phone section and select the .tar kernel you downloaded from step 1. Don't click anything else.
Place phone in download mode by pressing Volume Down + Power. Hold until confirmation screen appears. Confirm by pressing Volume +.
Connect your phone to the PC via USB cable
Check ODIN. A small box on the upper left should turn blue and the dialog box must display "Added!!"
Select "Start" and wait for it to finish. After it is complete, your SGS3 will reboot on its own. You now have a custom modem flashed on your phone!
How To Check For A Successful Custom Modem Installation
Go to Settings > About Phone > Baseband Version. It should coincide with the modem you just flashed. Enjoy!
I did this and everything worked fine up until I flashed the modem. It failed after it said "transmitting... wait 2 minutes." The phone also reads "SECURE CHECK FAIL: modem" on it after starting the process. Any suggestions as to what to do now?
Okay I flashed this after a flash killed my service and it restored cell but not data. Is there a way to restore stock APNs and data or?
Try doing a profile update from phone settings. Should work.
Thanks will do. I flashed TheBritton's MD7 stock file and I'm gonna see if it helps but my APNs are so messed up right now.
Edit:I'm clicking on update PRL and Profile but it's not working and now I have "Preparing Network" Message in the notification tab
i had that issue to i went back to stock via stock md7 punkman rom then kies with the rtn and have since avoid the update all is well for now.
I never could get punkmaxx modem file or any other to work through odin. They either failed or didn't fix anything. out of curiosity i made a zip package with the stock modem/firmware from the stock firmware package. I flashed it from twrp and it installed just fine. Now when i re flash the rom i do not lose lte. This may work to return your service. Try that package and see what happens. It's the same modem as punkmaxx but in a flashable zip package and the rest of the firmware files.
P.S. i was able to flash the two mg2 update files successfully but only the build changed to mg2. Baseband is still md7 BUT since i flashed the modem zip, i no longer lose data connection!!!!!!!
P.S.S. if someone with a pure mg2 build/baseband could extract the modem and send it to me i can try and fix the baseband problem to get us to mg2. If you have pure mg2 run this command in a terminal or from adb shell if you know how...
