Default [Q] Modem/radio upgrade via ODIN?

I just downgraded to android 4.1 via odin.

How do I upgrade the modem only, so that I can flash cm11?
I have a 256 kpbs connection, so it would be better if theres a odin flashable modem only, instead of downloading the whole stock 4.2 firmware

Just open tar file in winrar
Extract modem.bin
Connect phone in odin mode
Click on phone
Select ur modem.bin
Voila...


Even I also downgraded to 4.1.2 and its working pretty fine here
Nokia 1100 > Nokia 6600 > Nokia N72 > Nokia n95 > Nokia N86 > Htc Touch > Xperia U > Galaxy S2Plus > Galaxy S2 > Galaxy Grand Duos > NEXUS 5

Feel FREE to pm me in case u need technical support (not developer level ) or want any suggestion.

Check my thread.

CM11 won't work on 4.1.2 cuz there are many other changes barring the modem including CSC, bootloader, partition and some other stuff.

Downloaded the whole 4.2.2. Took one night.

The /cache partition is actually used for downloading OTA Updates.
