Default Help! Accidentally flashed N7 radio on Wifi Version

Hello,

I was updating to the latest kit kat image and accidently downloaded and flashed the radio to the mobile version but I have the wifi version. It still boots but has caused some issues. My question is how do i remove it? Or is there a link to the radio for the wifi version that I can install?

THanks!

Hello,

Any update on this? My home button does not work because the radio appears to still be installed when I have the wifi version, not mobile. Is there a standalone radio I can reflash for the wifi version?

You will need to flash the correct factory image because the kernel is bundled along with it and kernels are highly hardware specific. Also the radio models are built into the kernel itself. So it's not possible for you to "flash a radio"!
I suggest that you learn more about kernels and how they work.
Hope that cleared it up for you!
