I just figured out something interesting and thought I'd share my findings.

I was trying to flash the new modem, but wasn't installing even though Odin reported success. I must've tried 5 or 6 times, and then it finally took. The only difference was that the last time I completely turned the phone off and manually started in Download mode (Power + Vol Down,) while all the previous times I was rebooting via CM11's "advanced reboot" dialog (power button -> Reboot -> Download). I guess something either in the ROM or the phone itself isn't properly starting when you reboot to Download mode from within the ROM.

TL;DR - power off your phone and manually boot into Download mode for proper Odin/Heimdall flashing.

Flashed as PDA via an advanced reboot/download menu CM11. It said it flashed with success but looking at it after reboot nothing changed.

Flashed as phone via key combo.. and it did work. Just an FYI. Chahk, who posted one above me is onto something. Worked for me. Thanks!

I'm still not sure why some people have to do it that way. As long as it works I'm good with that. Strange though!

Question LTE question to SamuriHL

Dear SamuriHL, in your opinion/experience, it is possible to add a few 3G and LTE bands to I9505G? With QPST?

Or is it possible to flash an I9505 modem to I9505G to solve this problem elegantly? Would the phone get the bands of the I9505?

I would need the I9505's bands, as that is the International version, to have the I9505G's full potential in Europe. I would tend to believe that HW-wise the I9505G is capable, only crippled by SW, regarding the basebands.

Looking forward to hear from you and thank you in advance!

No idea but I'd not mess with basebands.

Could someone extract upload a flashable modem TAR from the latest (LMY47O) official GPE release please?

It may help fix a quick settings data toggle issue that users of a GPE-based ROM for i9505 are having - thanks in advance!
