8) Reflash custom recovery if you want.

YES!!! It's great solution Thanks!

If you are running into the problem where the bootloader isn't updated or your radio baseband is showing one thing in bootloader and another in the system status, here is a quick fix:

1) Download the full system image from Google. Untar and unzip.
2) Fastboot flash the bootloader (4.18). Fastboot reboot bootloader. Verify that the version is correct and updated.
3) Fastboot flash the STOCK 4.2.2 RECOVERY. Do not attempt to use CWM or TWRP, otherwise you will have issues.
4) Fastboot flash the 1231_0.17... radio.
5) Reboot into (stock) recovery mode.
6) At this point, the stock recovery should begin to process the radio update and do the actual installation of it. You will see the progress bar moving. When it's done, the tab will automatically reboot into normal mode.
7) Verify that your radio (in system settings) is updated to the latest version.
8) Reflash custom recovery if you want.


After many wasted hours dealing with this issue when the update first came out (OTA), it seems to be related to the bach_update.modem function not being present in custom recoveries. Unlike the system, boot, etc. image files, the radio update is not an actual "image", at least like the others. While it is an ext4 filesystem system, the way it works is more similar to a recovery flashable zip file. It has a set of instructions for recovery to install the radio update. Custom recoveries break at this point, and so far I've only been able to get the stock one to work properly. For some reason, failing on the radio can also break the bootloader update as well, not to mention the build.prop update which is after the radio and might result in an incorrect Android version being identified.

If I think my bootloader updated ok do I really have to start at step 1 again? Or can I find the stock 4.2.2 recovery and start at step 3?

That does not matter. If you are sure that bootloader is correct (the version number displays in bootloader mode), you can start with the flashing of recovery. But even if you start with step 1, it will not hurt.

Did you update adb and flashboot to the latest versions?

Re: [ROM][Factory Image][4.2.2] Nakasig -::- Odex, Deodex, Rooted -::- teshxx (02/14/
Finally managed to update my N73G to 4.2.2 thru OTA.

Following the advise of the kind ppl here, I had restored to the stock recovery which is critical to the update process.

Thank you so much for this. Worked like a charm.

Used Wugs Toolkit to restore stock recovery. Then flashed the radio again. This time it shows correctly in rom.

I thought it was odd that originally when I flashed the radio that it sent me to TWRP instead of starting SaberMod rom. It makes sense now. Recovery Mode was supposed to finish the process but a custom recovery won't begin the final process.

Thank you for the above steps!

However I read from the above thread that there's another step to do - Flashing the undo-perm-recovery zip. Is this step needed?

I'm just trying to learn more and clarify things further before proceeding. Hehe
