Ok, I am going to try that. Baseband says unknown, even though model number says XT883
Ok, I flashed the old radio, thanks for that file, and it still said unknown. reflashed the new radio again
sending radio 14404 kb ... okay
phone is rebooting, and it is showing a screen with a progress bar and it is taking a few to complete.
I'll be dammed. I got the roaming triangle and a box with a plus sign where the signal goes. says no sim as well... got the baseband number as well. must not have flashed right the first time...
UPDATE: Ok, so I reflashed the radio.. had some funky stuff go on... then remembered again the whole basement thing, so I went to a window. I am now able to make calls and revieve and txt either way. Now that it is all solved, I just have to do my APN.
Thanks you SD_Shadow. I never was going to figure out the radio did not flash... Thanks for your insights and patients, and the files to restore the other radio.
