Default How can I tell I'm on ND2 vs NCB

I rooted my Sisters S5 the other day and followed the directions.
The directions recommended I apply updates before.

So we did and it downloaded like a 50MB file and all went fine.

Next day I bought my S5.

I went to check for Updates and it Said no Updates. So I think it may have done it in the store or on the way home.
But I remember it being a rather explicit process.

So I rooted and then installed R.O.D.T. ROM but had not noticed he has NCB and ND2.

I installed NCB.

So how can I tell if I'm on ND2. Was there firmware that was updated as well?

I plan to reflash R.O.D.T ND2. But I want to be sure I have the correct firmware.

In the About window I see G900PVPU1AND2 (is this the firmware/radio)? And does this mean it's ND2?

Thanks for any advice for this former HTC owner and Samsung Newbie.

On that rom, the dev decided to keep the NCB radio version, but in "about phone" it saids ND2 under the build number. You have the ND2 updates, just not the radio.

So how do I get the Radio?

I just switched to his ND2 DeOdex ROM.

I don't think anyone has made a flashable radio yet. You would do it by backing up everything on an sd card, flashing the ND2 tar file, re-rooting, and restoring the data. Personally though that's not worth the effort for such insignificant changes. I would wait for a flashable radio.
