Thanks a lot for the reply. I can and have in the past flashed the MJ7 modem (without NON-HLOS) just fine and it updated my baseband in "About Phone" to show MJ7. But attempting to actually flash the MJ7 radio (NON-HLOS) just errors out. From what I have gathered, its because of my still being on the MDK bootloader. I suspect the bootloader version and radio (NON-HLOS) version have to match because I can successfully flash the MDK radio (NON-HLOS) just fine. As I was trying to articulate earlier, I'd have no problem upgrading my bootloader to MJ7 to get the updated MJ7 radio (NON-HLOS) along with the MJ7 modem. But after reading about others having problems flashing AOSP roms from the MJ7 bootloader, I'm a bit reluctant. What I can't seem to find anywhere though is any clear explanation of how the radio (NON-HLOS) is different from just the modem (without NON-HLOS). Someone suggested somewhere that one is for WiFi and the other for cell reception. But I don't know if that is accurate.
If I've helped you in any way, Please remember to hit the Thanks button.
