How do I do that? Or can you explain me what exactly do you mean? I have a N910H and I'd like to flash roms down the road (maybe if some AOSP comes out later) but I have noticed most roms so far are coming for the C version.

Thanks guys. I suppose now I can be a little more adventurous. Is there any hardware difference?

I belive they have the same hw. I am trying to verify though.

I wonder what will happen if I flash a 910c fw. Any chance of permanently bricking the device?
You can flash the f/w. I am using WanamLite for N910C on my N910H and it works fine. Of course 4G/LTE is not functioning.
The only last step to the conversion is establishing if the modem of N910C will work on N910H. Until now, we know that the modem hardware is the same on N910H and N910C. I haven't tried to flash the modem on my N910H because I really don't want to brick my 800$ device I bought last week. Down the road someone is bound to try it, then we can even enjoy 4G on our N910H variant if it works :)

I was trying to flash 910C fw using odin and failed. Not sure how to just flash the modem bin. Can it be done?

Is the modem included with the roms? Like, if go to the dev section I see a lot of 'C' roms. Will I be able to flash all these roms without affecting the modem of my 'H' variant? or is it included with the custom rom?

I've flashed WanamLite and SweetRom (N910C) and both worked fine without affecting my modem. Make sure you change the network to WCDMA/GSM insted of LTE/WCDMA/GSM.

Thanks, 2 more questions.
1) Is this going to be the case always? or are there roms that include the modem when flashing?
2) Is any of those two smoother than stock? If so, which one?

Thanks again

1- As far as I know, no, the modem stays untouched while flashing custom ROMs through CWM/TWRP. Maybe someone with more experience on the matter could confirm this.
2- Both are much better and have noticeably better battery life.

Problem is I do not know how to flash jus the modem.bin. Any ideas?
As flashing anything else put the .tar in PDA
