20C Baseband with 10D Radio
SMS Send Bug Fix
!!d800 Only!!

Edit (2015.05.12) - I have dumped and posted d80020y modem to my website. It seems that 20y might have fixed this issue. I have been using it for a day or so now and have not noticed this bug. You may wish to try that modem before this one.



I have tried multiple ROMs with the KK Modem as well as the KK-AOSP Modem. In all instances, when using the radio contained within the new KK Modem, my SMS messages would randomly get 'stuck' for lack of a better word. I posted a Q&A thread on this issue and had a couple of responses indicating the same issue, even on stock KK.

Therefore, in my quest to fix this, I contacted dr87 about how the AOSP patched modems were created. Based on his (very quick) response, I decided to create my own patched modem.

This modem is compatible with KK based ROM (e.g. CloudyPro II). However, instead of keeping the KK radio, which seems to cause issues, I patched the modem with the 10D radio.

This yields the best of both worlds. All sensors seem to be working correctly in KK. Also, I have not had any SMS messages get 'stuck' since this uses the old, good, radio.

I only created this last night! It flashed and works great on my phone. Flash at your own risk.

Also, I flashed with TWRP.

D800 ONLY

Major Thank You to dr87!

TL;DR:
Problem: ROMs that require the KK Modem (for rotation to work) cause SMS messages to randomly get stuck, causing ~2 minute delay when sending.
Solution: Use this patched modem.

Download:
https://www.gregtwallace.com/lg-g2/d800-modems/
(It is the Modded One - Baseband: D80020C; Radio: D80010D)


Install:
1) Copy .zip and .md5 to the root of your sdcard.
2) Reboot into TWRP.
3) Install -> Select .zip File.
4) Check "Zip file signature verification." (File is properly signed.)
5) Swipe to install the zip. (MD5 and Signature should verify and modem should install.)
6) Wipe cache/dalvik (for good measure.)
7) Reboot System and Enjoy!

Note: In "System Settings" under "About Phone" -> "Software Information" the Baseband version will be listed as ending in ".190034". This is the 10D baseband.
10D & 10O Baseband Rev: M8974A-AAAANAZM-1.0.190034
Default KK Baseband (20c) Rev: M8974A-AAAANAZM-1.0.190082
This Patched KK Baseband Rev: M8974A-AAAANAZM-1.0.190034

Please respond with any issues, etc.

So basically this is an all in one modem for stock KitKat ROMs (ex. CloudyG3,etc) and works on AOSP roms with working rotation,etc?

No, this will not work for ROMs based on the old source (e.g. CM11).

This only works for KK based ROMs. It allows KK based ROMs to be fully functional, while still using the old baseband (radio).

This looks promising, I'll provide feedback once I return from work tonight!

Besides fixing the stuck SMS sending bug, any other advantages to this modem? Battery life or signal strengths?

I'm running Lam Hoang G3 ROM on D800 but it should still be fine

You're welcome.

This isn't anything fancy. It is exactly what it professes to be. All of the KK modem files, except the 10D radio files were swapped in. So if you had any other 'better' things on 10D vs. the KK modem, you might get them in this, but probably not.

You think this will help with reboots caused by low LTE signal?

I've never had that problem, so I have no idea.

Thank you kindly for the reply. Now one last question. I am fairly new to the G2 still so I was not around during the new KK source days dealing with the KK modem and AOSP. This sounds like it should work for AOSP roms. Am I correct in that assumption? Thanks again!
