[Q] Modem Help after 4.3 Flash with new board
My trusty N7100 had an allergic reaction to saltwater about 3 weeks ago. It only got the top of the phone but it shorted out and would freeze on the boot screen until the battery was pulled. I took it to a few shops here in the Philippines but wasn't much they could do. From the tear down vids, etc, I figured it needed a new board. I took it to Hong Kong for New Year's and a friend found a shop that was able to get it up and running for $100 but couldn't get any info on what work was done. The phone was still rooted/unlocked and worked on my prepaid HK data sim as well as my local carrier when I returned to the Philippines two days ago. But it was showing as "Modified" in device status and wouldn't do OTA updates. I decided to flash it from 4.1 to 4.3 with ODIN and now its "Not Registered on Network".
Looks like a common error for the 4.3 upgrade but after hours of research, I'm in the dark as to the best path forward. IMEI, s/n, etc., in device status have remained unchanged and show out of the box numbers (the one thing I did record
. Based on the below I am trying to figure out if I should be flashing Globe Philippines rom's or HK rom's... or just need to change to a HK modem?
Before the dunking:
Philippines Globe phone. I bought it in Oct2012, rooted it to unlock but that's about it. Unfortunately it was my first Android phone and I didn't record the system specs anywhere. I have some Titanium BU's but no images (doh)
After resuscitation in Hong Kong, everything was all good (but I didn't make a recovery image of this either = doh x2):
I flashed the ROM with what I thought was the recommended 4.3 stock rom for Philippines Globe. I have Wi-Fi but can't connect to mobile networks. I tried three different sims for two different carriers.
This one has got me stumped as I'm not sure what flavor my phone is after its organ transplant. Now that its mostly alive, I could take it back over to the boys at the mall but that would be too easy. Thanks for any help. I've been a lurker on here since I first looked at buying this phone and have learned a lot from this site.
I'm running ODIN via Virtualbox with a Kubuntu host and W7 guest.
