[Q] about dk28 modem?
I posted this in the dev Q&A, but I'm pasting it here so I can get an answer. Included is a follow up question from another user.
I apologize for the ignorance in advance.
when using using odin, when does the modem come into play? im finally going to go to dk28 from di18 because of the new ext4 support...
most guides, especially in the wiki, just instruct to use the .tar.md5 and the pit...
but a couple of posts (like ACS guide) link to the modem as well...
so what's the difference? what is the modem and when is it necessary to odin it?
do I even need to worry about it?
EDIT: I've read other posts in this thread and it SEEMS like it depends on whoever's method youre using (ACS post says modem, but whosdaman's *OFFICIAL* thread is a full .tar.md5 that includes modem data....
BUT...I still want to know what the modem actually is. I'd like an understanding of it so I could intuitively know if I have to deal with a modem in the future. Us IS guys don't like "because it says so" explanations lol. I like background info.

I'm currently on ACS' DI18 based Syndicate ROM w/ Xtreme Kernel (latest of each)
I'm not afraid of Odin, so if that's the best way, that's fine.
I just need to know what files i need for the best, cleanest, bugfree flash. I will probably be going to EXT4 as well, so that probably makes a difference.
Is the post by artemis-nyc with the dk28 + cwm redirect + root what i want? It has odex'd and deodex versions. I've also seen links to the official .rel.md5 file on the Wiki... there's also the ACS DK28 DEODEX, and there's also noobnl's ODEX'd DK28. He has the modem flash here too...
I guess my biggest problem is there is just so much info on the forum right now, with people replying on different threads, so its really hard to keep straight what is the current stuff, and what is older/buggy stuff that should probably be avoided. I might be making this harder than it is lol.
I'm inclined to think is all I need is the dk28 modem then flash whatever rom I want, following their specific instructions. Is that correct?
