Default [RADIO] Flash OFFICIAL Radios without ENG HBOOT

Hello all, Let me start this off first by saying I am in no way shape or form a developer. I am just providing the Guide/Steps to install only the new radio without needing the Engineering Hboot. It also skips the steps of reflashing your boot.img and recovery image that get over written if you flash the firmware.zip

Items you will need before installing radio
-ADB and Fastboot connectivity
-S-OFF
-Radio.zip in file location that you will be executing the fastboot commands (ie. c/DNA/DNA Unclock/)
Thanks to lazarus2297 for compiling the radio zip into a fashable form to eliminate the need to reflash BOOT/Recovery

STEP 1- Verify ADB connectivity with your PC

C:\android\DNA Unlock>adb devices

STEP 3- execute Fastboot OEM RebootRUU command

STEP 4- Fastboot Flash radio.zip

C:\android\DNA Unlock>fastboot flash zip radio.zip
sending 'zip' (18514 KB)...
OKAY [ 1.989s]
writing 'zip'...
(bootloader) zip header checking...
(bootloader) zip info parsing...
(bootloader) checking model ID...

Thanks for the guide. Now we've got to try out some other radios too. The one that came with the OTA seems to have better connectivity, but that doesn't mean there are no others that are better. Any idea which ones would work?

no clue noone else has a similar phone until the M7 comes out... the TBOLT/Evo used to have interchangeable radios but we had to flash CDMA and LTE radios separate because they are different bands...

I"m just sticking with Official radios

Since you have the OTA you have the new radio.

If you took the OTA, then you already have these radios.
Your WiFi issues are likely related to improper flashing of kernel/modules. When you flashed your last ROM, what kernel did you use? The 2 most popular around here are DSB's Cubed kernel, and Elkay's kernel.
You must unzip the kernel files into their own dedicated folder so you can access them.
These kernels come with a 'modules' zip file that must be flashed separately in recovery before everything will function correctly. If you're only flashing the boot.img, then there is your problem.

To flash the boot.img, you should use the IMG Flash GUI app (in Android), or via fastboot, and then immediately reboot to recovery and flash the modules.
I always also wipe cache and Dalvik cache too.

If you feel like you need to ask for 'thanks' in the signature section of every post, you probably don't deserve it.

Since you took the OTA, I don't think custom kernels are compatible with it. In the development forum someone posted the new kernel and modules, flash those to fixyour WiFi issues.
