No you were smart to make sure about everything before firing. That's why it worked.

I went from MA5 to MA7 with no issues. [...] I flashed firmware, then modem, then rom

Default Can you flash a MA5 rom Running on MA7 Firmware?

Can you flash a MA5 rom Running on MA7 Firmware? Will H2O MA5 rom work on a rooted MA7 phone ?

I think he's referring to the LJC2MA7 update.zip.

They said the exact opposite of that. They said they did not have to revert to stock or flash the full update.zip

Perhaps that's actually what they did and they are just so fuzzy they don't even know it. That's what I was trying to nail down.

Maybe there WAS a firmware zip that I just hadn't seen yet. Unlikely but possible. So rather than say they are wrong or misguiding people I just say "where is this thing you say you flashed?"
If they don't answer then that speaks for itself If they do answer then whatever they point at determines what happens next. I figured they either were flashing the ma5 firmware, or that they thought modem = firmware.

Then use the files in the thread listed in the OP for MA7. Makes sure to wipe Divack, cache, and system. I flashed firmware, then modem, then rom, and last firmware. Sometimes firmware doesn't always stick, so it's just a precaution. Between flashes, wipe divack and cache. ....

Well, here is the link where I got the MA7 files I used: XDA Thread

It does appear I misspoke a bit. I should have used modem, rom, and kernal. It was late for me when I responded I used someone's phrasing not thinking clearly. Although, all three do make up the firmware, or at least most of it. My apologies for any confusion.

Nonetheless, the other than bad phrasing, the process should worked for me without having to revert back to LJC from being on MA5 to go to MA7. I haven't had issues with phone or connecting to the Network or using LTE.
