Hey,
Is there a way to install a custom kernel (all of which I've seen are based on 9505) or a custom 9505 based rom on our i337m without losing LTE? Note that I've never installed other modem.bin files so I'm using my device's stock modem. Also, my carrier's LTE bandwidth is 1900 Mhz which is supported by i337m devices but not by 9505 devices -from what I have been able to find.
Every time I flash custom kernels or roms I lose LTE, everything else works perfectly well.
I've also tried using an Android Kitchen to modify my stock kernel and at least provide it with init.d support but when I flash on my device it won't finish booting up.
Thanks a lot in advance for any tip/help.

I had this problem. I had to manually add the apn for LTE. For me though, I find that my signal would be weak at times. Ib4stid's goldeneye works great and gets great LTE... So does deadly Venom and vision x. I used kt, googy max and talexop kernels with vision x. Other 2 are fine out of the box.

FYI, fixed the issue by installing another custom kernel: KT Kernel. LTE works flawlessly now. I tried with my carrier's stock kernel and GoogyMax before with no luck. Nothing else changed.
