Download the MK2 Modem.bin if you don't already have it.
Here is the direct download link for it: http://www.mediafire.com/download/1g...l89x/modem.bin

Here are the exact step by step instructions for doing that, doing it this way worked fine for me.
Before flashing anything be sure to make a nandroid backup of your rom.

You can Odin flash the MK2 modem while on the 4.2.2 rom or flash it
after flashing Wicked v9.1 MK2 rom the procedure is exactly the same.

Before starting, unplug the usb cable from your phone if it's plugged in
and remove the battery from the phone for 30 seconds then replace.


#1: Power up the phone.
#2: Start ODIN and put the MODEM.BIN file into ODIN'S PHONE slot/tab.
#3: Un-Check the "Auto-Reboot" check box in ODIN.
#4: Put the phone into download mode
#5: Plug the USB cable into the phone and into the computer.
#6: Make sure that ODIN'S [COM:xx] lights up and click START..
#7: After Odin is done flashing unplug the usb cable.
#8: Manually power off the phone by using the power button only.
#9: Wait 20 seconds or so and power on the phone.

After flashing is done the baseband of the phone should display MK2 in
Settings>More>About Device> Baseband version.

Good luck with it!

After Odin says passed, leave it plugged in for another 30 seconds. Then manually power off the phone. Unplug it, put it in download mode again, replug it, and flash again. Then reboot. It will stick.

Yeah, it can take a while if it is your first time flashing a modem. Glad you have it working, enjoy your ROM!

just so I don't have to create a new thread and my question is somewhat related.
If I move up to 4.3 with root (not bootloader) and decide I want to come back to 4.2, will I have to flash the 4.2 (mdl) LTE modem or can the 4.3 (mk2) LTE modem work fine?[COLOR="Silver"]

The mk2 modem work just fine with mdl firmware. I was using it for over a week on mdl before flashing a 4.3 ROM.
