Default Getting modem.bin and flashing?

Everytime I flash any 3rd party rom, apart from my providers rom, I can not get any SIM card function. No signal. No IMEI with calling code. #*1234# or whatever gives me PHONE: Unknown and in my settings, baseband unknown. I was reading round the place and Im now wanting to know how i can get my original modem file and get it into a flashable state. Hopefully that will fix the issue. I have the I8160L model.

Thanks!

That's because the flashed modem is not for your phone, f.e. you can't flash i8160P/L modem on i8160.

Flash the custom rom and create a tar from phone part (modem.img.md5) extracted from roms built for your model (i8160L) and flash just the phone.tar with odin.
Or write modem.bin.md5 (not the tar!) directly to modem/phone partition using terminal/adb (requires rooted phone):

Code:
su
dd if=/sdcard/external_sd/modem.bin.md5 of=/dev/block/mmcbk0p13
reboot

Default Tee folder

Can anybody provide a copy of a tee folder that works, from an I8160? I am in UK

Thanks, had already flashed UK BTU ROM I8160XXMK2 from sammobile via Odin. Flashes fine, but fails to register on network. Searches for and can see mobile networks, shows a couple of bars of signal strength, but will not register. Sim works fine in other devices. Reading elsewhere leads me to suspect modem.
