I have a really strange problem going off here and I am hoping that a few people in the know can help.

On my ongoing saga / quest or even visit in to the twilight zome trying to get my phone repaired I have come up on a new issue.

I have managed to get the phone to boot using this ROM - KIES_HOME_I9300XXELL4_I9300OXAELL4_566833_REV00_us er_low_ship.tar which I flashed via odin.

I ended up having my baseband back reporting as - I9300XXELL4 and the infamous IMEI coming up as 0049*.

Now I run terminal emulator this is what I have

getprop ro.bootloader - I9300XXUGMK6

getprop ro.baseband - unknown
Then when I run samsung phone info I get the following

CSC INFO

Original CSC code - KOR
Firmwares CSC code - KOR
Active CSC code - KOR
CSC country - Korea
CSC Country ISO - blank

Product code - GT-I9300RWDEUR

The Korea part baffles me as everytime I have downloaded a ROM I have looked for BTU as I am in the UK and from the digging I have done this phone was unlocked.

So even to someone like me with very limited knowledge of this sort of stuff, it looks like I have a combination of a 4.3 Bootloader and 4.1.2 system which could be stopping me from getting my IMEI up?

Would flashing a MK6 BTU Modem ( as I am in the UK ) through Odin work?

Unknown baseband means hardware failure, csc is unimportant.

To set the csc to match firmware you need to factory reset in recovery, after flashing.

So in phone settings it is showing as the I9300XXELL4 baseband however in terminal emulator it is unknown what does that mean?
