Default [Q] Finally got GPS back

So I had no GPS after I flashed the MK2 modem. Can you lose GPS from going from Kit Kat back to Jelly Bean? I was on 4.2.2, then flashed 4.4.2, installed MK2, then decided to go try 4.3. What do you think? I ended up making a complete flash to Samsung Original Stock firmware MDL and finally, I see the birdies.

Totally weird. I just don't know what caused it.

I'm the exact opposite.. I had lost my GPS a few months back. Nothing restored it; different ROMs, GPS status apps from the Play Store, full restore to stock (both MDB and MDL) via Odin, etc. It wasn't until I flashed MK2 modem/bb that my GPS came back.

Could you tell me which instructions you used for making the switch to MK2? There seems to be a lot of guides now and I'm in the same position that you were in, so I'd like to use whatever worked for you!

Both this and this do the same thing; I can't remember which exact one I followed, but they both end up with the same result.
