[Q] Order of Operations for New Firmware, Modem, and ROM
Hello everyone. I have been away from the Android scene for awhile, and I am looking to make some changes to my VZW SGIII. I want to make sure that my current plan for upgrading makes sense and I was hoping someone here could help. Here are my current settings:
ROOTED, BOOTLOADER Unlocked, CWM installed
Kernal: 3.4.53 Cyanogenmod
Liquid Smooth v2.9
I would like to update my Modem, since my current option has absolutely terrible reception. According to what I have read, it seems that the best Modem option is MF1 firmware than do a ML1 Baseband update.
[Q1] Does this have to be performed with ODIN, or can I do this through CWM?
The other thing I would like to do is to update to KitKat. I have found a ROM I think I will like, C-RoM v6.5. The instructions from their thread:
"WIPE (wipe data/factory reset + wipe cache partition + Format System)
Install the ROM from internal sdcard
Select Rom Zip And Flash, then select GAPPS of choice (doesnt have to be from below, im using PA GAPPS myself...) And Flash
Reboot And Enjoy..."
[Q2] What is the best order of operations in order to ultimately end up with MF1 w/ ML1 modem and C-RoM 6.5?
Should I do all the modem updates first and then flash ROM? Thanks!
