Same question here. I have a G920F and want to flash a modem. I have the AOD9 modem.bin and I assume I just flash it with ODIN with CP but I don't really want to go ahead and do it without knowing that I'm doing it right.

Thanks I just flashed the aod3. Anybody know if we can flash T-Mobile or AT&T modems on the international S6, or would that result in brick?

Sent from my SM-N910T

+1 can we flash other modems on the International SM-G920I?

I flashed aod3 on my g920i. It seems better than aod1. Aod1 would have me dropping down to hspa in places where I have never ever lost LTE before. I'm on AT&T. Would love to be able to flash AT&T or T-Mobile modem, assuming those are optimized for the U.S.

Funny cause I went to At&t and Verizon to check signal and there's are perfect.... I live in Alaska and most our towers are shared with At&t so the 920I should work on their network... But I can't recommend being the first to flash an att baseband on our phones.... Let me know if you end up trying it out... I was hoping my phone was just bad bit I've exchange 2 times already same **** reception
So you did notice a little better reception with the newer modem huh? The only thing I can think of is my S5 had LTE Cat 4 and this phone has LTE Cat 6 don't really know if that makes a difference... Probably not...

I attempted to flash ATT modem on 925F and it failed. :)

But not sure if I attempted it correctly. I flashed modem.bin instead of modem.tar.md5.

If somebody can get me the latest ATT modem in a format that is for sure flashable via Odin I'll try it.

I was able to flash the modem and BL files from "Latest Bootloader & Modem packages" thread on my 920F, but unable to use the AT&T versions. I'm also trying to see if I can get a signal reception improvement on my LTE AT&T SIM.

How did Odin report the reason of failure?
Have you tried other versions (not 920f)? If we can get back by flashing the original modem, I think it's worth trying. I know that 920F/T/I have the same baseband chip made by samsung.

I have a Sprint galaxy s6 edge unlocked and i use it for T-mobile. my LTE signal is so low at times. I was wondering if i could flash a T-mobile baseband and BL and just use tmobile roms?
