Default [Q] Can't upgrade radio on T-989

So, I'm using a T-Mobil T-989 currently running a really old CM 9.1.0 with the UVLI4 radio. I'm using Clockwork Mod.
I'd REALLY like to upgrade to CM11, but I'm getting hung on the damn radio upgrade.

I've got the UVMC6 update, but I can't seem to get it to install.

I've tried:

Straight install.
Straight install, wipe cache, wipe Davik
Wipe cache, wipe Davik, install.
Wipe cache, wipe Davik, install, wipe cache, wipe Davik
Full wipe/system restore, wipe cache, wipe Davik, install.
Full wipe/system restore, wipe cache, wipe Davik, install, wip cache, wipe Davik

Each time, I get exactly the same result: It sits there at the spinning-circle CM booting screen. I've left it for 5 minutes and it just doesn't get any farther.

What am I missing?

Pretty sure an old cm won't boot with the new radio installed.

Your easiest bet would be to Odin flash stock 4.1.2. That will put you on jelly bean with the new radio. Then install custom recovery (at least twrp 2.6.1.0) and root.

Then install your rom.

So the procedure should be:

Plug in USB.
Reboot into USB-recovery (Holding both volume buttons)
Load Odin3 v3.09
Use Odin to load T-Mobile firmware 4.1.2 using the T989UVMC6_T989TMBMC6_TMB.zip that I got. (I found the how-to for doing that.)
Install TWRP
Use Kies to Root
Use TWRP to install CM11 (using the typical wipe-everything-and-install method)

Am I missing anything?
