Default [Q] Modem help for i337M MDJ band

Hi there,

I am using a Canadian i337M on MDJ base with Rogers (RWC).

I've been having serious issues getting the modem to work using various 4.4 ROMs (specifically: MrVirgina's VirginROM link and Danvdh's Dandroid GPE link. The ROMS are both perfect and I would desperately love to use either.

I know I have to ODIN the 4.3 modem.bin and a NON-HLOS.bin. But I have tried a few methods and nothing seems to get the desired result.

Mr.Viginia suggested to anthor poster, to 1) use a 4.2.2 NON-HLOS and 2) a 4.3 Modem.bin. (link).

I have a stock 4.2.2 MDJ RWC rom, so I can get the NON-HLOS.
But I cannot find a 4.3 MDJ RWC rom to get the modem.bin.

My questions are:
1) is the approach from MrVirgina viable?
2) Do I need the modem.bin specific to MDJ, or will another work? Like MD6 from Samfirmware.
3) Assuming I need a 4.3 MDJ modem, where can I find one?

I should mention that I have been using MrVirginia's VirginROM for a few months with no issues (ver 4.3)

Please point me in the right direction. I truly appreciate your help.

Why not flash back to stock and update to 4.3?

Yes, I had considered that option, but I had a hard time finding a stock 4.3 ROM with MDJ band. Lots of 4.3 with other baseband out there, but not so much MDJ (at least that I could find).

At any rate, I was eventually successful at getting modems and sound to both work again. Although I cant remember specific order in which I did it, I used a 4.2.2 NON-HLOS with MDJ band and a 4.3 modem.bin with MK6 baseband.

Thanks again for the suggestion.

Can you post up links to the files you downloaded? I have been searching for this for at least 4 hours. Starting to drive me nuts.
Thanks in advance

Sure thing, these are the two links I used:

4.2.2 Stock ROM from GalaxyS4Root.com (link)

4.3 Stock ROM for XDA (link)

Make sure you get the correct carrier too.

I am sure there are many other out there, but these worked for me.
