Hey all,

Not sure if this is where i should be posting so please correct me if i'm wrong.

So i have an ace ii i8160 on baseband XXLK7 (Orange/EE UK) and i rooted, installed TWRP and flashed the cyanogenmod 11 from [nova fusion] (it wont let me link it as i am a new user). It worked perfectly and was looking great however the phones GSM function was no longer working. I have tried a few nightlys and a few stable releases, all flash successfully and boot but with no sim function at all.

No one else flashing these ROMs seems to have any GSM/RIL trouble so i think it is a problem specific to Orange/EE UK or my baseband.

I originally thought it was a problem with the ROM but have tried a few different modem files to no avail. I was wondering if any of you could help, either with changing the baseband (would an Orange UK SIM card still work with a different baseband than the XXLK7?) or upload a good stock gingerbread 2.3.6 for the ace ii on this baseband. I cant seem to find one anywhere.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Robbie.
