Default [MODEM][I9505] Modem XXUEMKF

Disclaimer
I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY BRICKS, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE READ THE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS IN THIS POST


What is it ?

This is a new version of a modem for the Galaxy S4 i9505.
This is not for the Google Edition.
The modem is for France, and cover the provider : SFR, Bouygues, or the phone bought without any provider ( this is my case)

it should be usable for other country, but the parameters of the modem could be not the most appropriate ???

Note : 'Version de bande de base' mean : 'BaseBand Version'...



I took this modem directly from an official Firmware, available in SamMobile web site.

How to flash ?

Get the file here : https://mega.co.nz/#!RdpWlS6a!ahKPHj...htcbZo9e9RZaws

Use odin V3.04 (or odin 3.07) under a computer running windows XP, Vista, Seven, windows 8.0 or 8.1
Use Heimdall 1.4 or more recent under Windows, linux or OSX.
(see here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2071724 or here : http://glassechidna.com.au/heimdall/)

I didn't try Heimdall yet. But I think it will be a good solution for the futur, as it run on all platform (I own a Mac...)

About Odin (I used this method), there is plenty of tutorial over Internet and XDA-dev.
Run the application (run as Administrator if ruinning windows Vista, Seven, 8.0, 8.1)
it works under a virtual machine (like VMware) but odin will return an error at the end of pthe process, even if the flash works properly

select the file I9505XXUEMKF_modem.tar, and check the checkboxes like this. Odin should loks like this :



after that step, click on Start, and touch nothing until Odin has completed the job.

Reboot your phone, if Odin can't do it. if you phone stay stuck on samsung logo, reboot it manually again, before trying to flash again.
some tutorial says to flash twice the modem in case of the old modem remain.

Notes :
in my case, under the Virtual Machine, the process until writing works properly.
the last step (reboot) do not work and report an error in Odin, but the flash works.

BE CARREFUL, THIS MANIPULATION IS MORE FOR PEOPLE WHO KNOWS WHAT THEY DO !


Enjoy
Olivier

Wrong section. MKF is working fine over here too, with both GE (with random reboots of course, no fix yet) and TW roms (Omega).
Running Omega roms most of the time.

Not only flash twice : you sometime need to flash the modem a first time without the Odin reboot checked. Then you have to remove the phone batery, return to download mode and then flash a second time.

There's already a full and comple thread for Modem flashing, do we need another (incomplete) one ?
