thanks for the time and suggestions.

take care.

If you have a phone with the MDK bootloader, all you should have to do is to update the modem to the latest release.
Since installing MD2 seems to have worked, your bootloader is MDK so you're OK.

Did you follow the recovery instructions in to install CWM?
I'd be asking questions there to get help with getting this done.
However, it appears that people have had better success with other custom recoveries, like Philz and TWRP.
I can't say from personal experience, never having had a MDK phone in hand, but you may want to try TWRP.
