Great. Thank you for the help! I just flashed the modem and its showing mk2 in the baseband version, so i guess it went through. It had the 4.2.2 bootloader, not the 4.3.
So just to clarify, now that it has this installed I'm free to install any custom rom I want?
Current device: Galaxy S4
Rom: LiquidSmooth v3.0

DONATE TO ME
I take care of my S4 too, and I still avoid Knox like the plague. I'm sure the next person to own this phone will appreciate it.

Anyway, you might consider installing Mobile Odin from the Play Store. I've flashed a couple roms that caused my baseband to show as unknown and using MO to reflash the MK2 modem was insanely more convenient than using Odin on my PC.
