If i'm on MDL is it advised to flash the NB4 modem?
Sorry if I sound extremely stupid, I have no idea what these modems are. New to S4.
Let's explain it this way:
I live in WA where on the road fronting my home, I get great reception. Enter my home and anywhere you try, it wavers between 1 to 3 bars on EDGE, and rarely, 4G. I updated the original modem to the MDL and got a hair better reception, but forever still dropping calls. I installed a booster in the house and it just barely keeps a signal on the phone...(You cannot amplify what is not there, right?)
Enter the Flash for M919UVUFNB4.... Now, I never see EDGE, lots of bars on 4G and very frequently 4G LTE!
have not had a dropped call since installing the MODEM,bin and not looking back.
I also tried flashing the NON-HLOS.bin that I found with the Modem.bin file in a post for the SG4 and it worked fine....
I loaded another ROM and re-flashed the FNB4 modem + the NON-HLOS.bin and NO SOUND!
I re-loaded the previous ROM and re-flashed the Modem.bin, and DID NOT FLASH THE NON-HLOS.bin (LTE part) and I am again back in business, with solid connections and more bars that I never had before flashing the latest Modem.bin
Just fyi, I am on 4.2.2 I say, GO FOR IT! You will not regret the improvement!
Here's where I got information and you might be more comfortable after reading this:
Aloha and Good Luck!
