This instruction is only valid for modems without a digital signature (or modems with Qualcomm testing signature).
New modem has been tested on my phone Innos D10F (msm8228).

1. Install dependencies:
PHP:
sudo apt-get install p7zip-full
sudo apt-get install lib32z1 lib32ncurses5
sudo apt-get install scons
sudo apt-get install libxml-parser-perl

2. Download all sources:
PHP:
ROOTDIR=$HOME/dev/qcom/msm8626
mkdir -p $ROOTDIR
cd $ROOTDIR
git clone --branch "master" --progress -v "https://v2.pikacode.com/jsr-d10/qcom_msm8626_modem_proc.git" modem_proc
git clone --branch "master" --progress -v "https://v2.pikacode.com/jsr-d10/qcom_msm8626_adsp_proc.git"  adsp_proc
git clone --branch "master" --progress -v "https://v2.pikacode.com/jsr-d10/qcom_msm8626_wcnss_proc.git" wcnss_proc
Mirror: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:61e8b8a520181ade801c251e5ec9352e33a7bb8c

3. Copy hexagon_tools_6.4.06.a.7z (this file is present in the torrent) into directory: $HOME/Downloads

4. Install HEXAGON Tools:
PHP:
HEXAGON_ROOT=$HOME/Qualcomm/HEXAGON_Tools
7za x -y -o$HEXAGON_ROOT $HOME/Downloads/hexagon_tools_6.4.06.a.7z

5. Start modem build:
PHP:
ROOTDIR=$HOME/dev/qcom/msm8626
cd $ROOTDIR/modem_proc/build/ms/
./build.sh 8626.gen.prod BUILD_ID=AAAAANAZ -k
For clean repo type:
PHP:
ROOTDIR=$HOME/dev/qcom/msm8626
cd $ROOTDIR/modem_proc/build/ms/
./build.sh 8626.gen.prod BUILD_ID=AAAAANAZ --clean

6. Start ADSP build:
PHP:
ROOTDIR=$HOME/dev/qcom/msm8626
cd $ROOTDIR/adsp_proc/build/ms/
./build.sh msm8x26 msm8x26_MPD BUILD_VER=1234 -k

7. WCNSS module is distributed without sources.

8. Download pil-splitter.py :
PHP:
ROOTDIR=$HOME/dev/qcom/msm8626
cd $ROOTDIR
wget http://github.com/remittor/qcom-mbn-tools/raw/master/pil-splitter.py

9. Copy NON-HLOS.bin image from stock ROM to ROOTDIR directory. Rename NON-HLOS.bin to NON-HLOS-BASE.bin

10. Create file makeimg.sh into ROOTDIR directory and insert following content:
PHP:
cd `dirname $0`
ROOTDIR=$(pwd)
 
TMPDIR=mbn_images
rm -rf $ROOTDIR/$TMPDIR
mkdir -p $ROOTDIR/$TMPDIR
cd $ROOTDIR/$TMPDIR
 
MODEM_STK=$ROOTDIR/NON-HLOS-BASE.bin
MODEM_NEW=$ROOTDIR/NON-HLOS.bin
 
BUILD_ID=AAAAANAZ
IMAGE_DIR=$ROOTDIR/modem_proc/build/ms/bin/$BUILD_ID
python $ROOTDIR/pil-splitter.py $IMAGE_DIR/qdsp6sw.mbn modem
python $ROOTDIR/pil-splitter.py $IMAGE_DIR/mba.mbn mba
 
BUILD_ID=AAAAAAAA
IMAGE_DIR=$ROOTDIR/adsp_proc/build/ms/bin/$BUILD_ID
python $ROOTDIR/pil-splitter.py $IMAGE_DIR/dsp2.mbn adsp
 
BUILD_ID=8x26
IMAGE_DIR=$ROOTDIR/wcnss_proc/build/ms/bin/$BUILD_ID
python $ROOTDIR/pil-splitter.py $IMAGE_DIR/wcnss.mbn wcnss
 
MODEMVERSTR=`grep -aohPz "QC_IMAGE_VERSION_STRING=.*" ./modem.*`
MODEMVER=`echo $MODEMVERSTR | cut -d "=" -f 2`
echo $MODEMVER > $ROOTDIR/ver_info.txt
 
MODEM_VDISK=/media/vdisk
cp -f $MODEM_STK $MODEM_NEW
sudo mkdir -p $MODEM_VDISK
sudo mount -t vfat $MODEM_NEW -o rw,umask=0000,shortname=lower $MODEM_VDISK
rm -f $MODEM_VDISK/image/modem.*
rm -f $MODEM_VDISK/image/mba.*
rm -f $MODEM_VDISK/image/adsp.*
rm -f $MODEM_VDISK/image/wcnss.*
cp -f ./* $MODEM_VDISK/image/
rm -f $MODEM_VDISK/verinfo/ver_info.txt
mkdir -p $MODEM_VDISK/verinfo
cp -f $ROOTDIR/ver_info.txt $MODEM_VDISK/verinfo/
sudo umount $MODEM_NEW
 
cd $ROOTDIR

11. Run script makeimg.sh (result: NON-HLOS.bin)

12. New image NON-HLOS.bin should flash in the relevant section of eMMC.

My test result:

The method and instruction can be found here.
https://translate.google.com/transl.../2016/08/build-qualcomm-modem.html&edit-text=

The original page is in russian.
Use google translate.

http://syshwid.blogspot.com/2016/08/build-qualcomm-modem.html
You will need the untranslated page to see the "code" that is in code boxes.
And the translated page to read the instruction.

Dont forget to hit the thanks button.
This stuff is hard to find.

if the chip suports ,can we enable LTE using this?

Hi!
Thanks for these tools, Do you have the last version patched? QXDM 4.0? With 3.14.1144 version, some message shown "unknown" and I can read the information. :(

Thanks in advance!
Marco.

Big question about building a image. I know the plmn are in the image.im looking for a way to bypass the simlock check. I proven with a Dev build there are no plmn's and this in turn locks all sim cards. Even one's that should be carrier unlocked for the phone. If this can be accomplished we can just flash the modem.img to simunlock like back in the day.

    where you got those files?
    Chinese Internet contains a lot of closed sources (qcom & MTK).

    Check this thread. Post # 3.
    Rename the file to .gz or .zip to get it to extract right.
