Default No sound on GT-I9505

Have tried flashing back to a previous rom that worked and still no sound,
I've tried numerous modems, does any one have any suggestions?

No sound in calls which causes freeze, no sound in youtube so no video playback, no sound on menu or anywhere else, but everything else works fine.

Please assist it's driving me crazy and I'm at a loss with what to do.
Nexus 5 32GB // ROM - CARBON-KK-NIGHTLY // Kernel - ElementalX-N5-0.36 // Recovery - TWRP 2.7.0.0 //
Nexus 7 32GB WiFi (2012) // Stock

Finally I was able to regain sound!

I tried loads of firmware combinations without luck, so finally had to go back to stock fw and up to 4.4 again.

Here are the crucial steps
  • Phone was not knoxed up
  • Flash with XXUBMEA (stock 4.2.2) using heimdall/odin.
  • Flash HLOS again manually, despite having done that in previous step, as phone was still showing newest modem version, (XXUBMEA or XXABMEA md5 0d8d7a23751956cfef0974cc611e71ec)
  • got sound at this point!
  • cf auto root, reboot, install philz touch, both via download mode
  • flash with Pure Google pre rooted 4.4 v2
  • Flash modem with recommended version XXUEMKE
