Ok, I've flashed your GE and GF roms with no problem so I *thought* I had a clue, but I'm pretty sure you lost me completely with your last sentence.

Whenever I flashed your roms, I just downloaded to my SD card, safestrap wiped and installed, flashed NC1 modules, and boom - I was good.

Don't know what loki is.
Dont' know how to update my baseband (don't even know what that is - firmware I think?)
Use the latest 4.4.4 fw? wouldn't that be built into the rom?

Sorry iB4 - this just went over my head.

I see others have chimed in, but if you are still having issues, safestrap users will have to be on NJ4 base to run this ROM. Why? Because we cannot flash a 3rd party kernel with safestrap and 4.4.4 ROMs aren't compatible with the 4.4.2 stock kernel. Therefore, you need the stock 4.4.4 kernel pre-installed before flashing.

Easiest way to get to NJ4 is to backup, then Odin back to NB1 stock, take the NJ4 update, root, and install safestrap. Then you will be ready to flash this ROM. There are directions, including links to all the files you will need, here...

I think I'm just as confused as this guy. Been installing roms for years and have never dealt with modem/baseband issues before. Someone linked me to a thread earlier that dealt with att modem issues but that didn't help as I'm with Bell Canada.

Can someone please tell me which modem/baseband to flash in order to make this rom functional?.... added bonus if they can link me to a thread is how to flash it properly?

Here's my info :
i337m
Currently running Goldfinger v. 9
Baseband : MVLUFNE1

Thank you!

@guut13 - This is easily one of the most useful feedbacks I've gotten. This is how I learn - "such and such needs to be this way and here's why: <technical stuff>". I don't want to be a flake so I jumped in here to post real fast. I'm just your average dude but I'm self employed(gun to head) and I'm a family of 4 (beer to mouth) and quite honestly, I haven't even had a chance to look at this since my last post!

I'll be back soon - and thank you for this well written response and explanation - I COMPLETELY get it now.

Also of note, you might want to use your phone or find someone to provide a download of Odin for you. I don't remember where I ended up finding the version I have, but I'm still trying to clean the malware off my Windows 7 box from all the BS sites you have to wade through to find a real copy of it. You might want to do an XDA search for it instead of a Google search.

Nice instructions iB. I'm not sure about other models, but on the i337 with MDL bootloader, people did seem to have issues with older basebands. I was on the latest before this ROM came out, so I haven't verified that. It is likely different for other models though. Just mentioning it in case an i337 non-SS user sees your post and assumes they will have issues unless they update the bootloader. I'm i337 with MDL and this is the most solid ROM I've had on this phone.

Why in the world would you want to move to a locked Bootloader and safestrap. I would kill to switch you phones and have my MDL back. There are some good guides for this in the General Questions forum. Just remember once you upgrade you can't go back.

See, when I started installing everything on my cousin's phone, it started out as Baseband MK2. After I flashed the Super-Nexus ROM from Joe-Tech, it read as 'MLD,'--no matter what I did, it stayed as 'MLD.'

Would this mean that I can get rid of Safestrap and just install TWRP normally?

Baseband doesn't mean much. All that matters is the bootloader. You would need MDL bootloader, not MLD. Once you go past MDL, you can never go back, and need SafeStrap. If the bootloader is MDB or MDL then you can flash a normal recovery and flash anything you want.

Hi Ib4stid,

I finally got around to installing 1.2. Did a clean install without issue, boots first time. All major functions of the phone working with out issue.

I had one question regarding the latest update. I am curious to know why the rom was reverted back to the old Kitkat menu and settings button? I miss the ability to quickly close apps.

I'm running a I337M Rogers, Canada.

Regards,

A

when i redid the rom, i wanted to give each carrier the correct csc fully, for example i9505 users will see data management via the power menu, att user will not, tho with quicktoggles i wanted all carriers to have the same shortcuts, this was my way of making a 4.4.4 version for all carriers, tailored for each carriers setup.! but with a bonus

i just like this stock, and most of my users do as well, if i add something some people dont like it, if i take something away other people dont like it, its just how it goes, so i sorta picked the middle ground :good:

No keyboard symbols on main keyboard

Why did it go away? It is enabled in Wanam. I keep trying to disable, restart, re-enable, and restart again. But the symbols are not there. Any idea?

Just wanted to say thanks for a great ROM man. Been using it for about a month now. Everything works perfect. Using Greenify + TricksterMod nullifies the need for a custom kernel. SafeStrap keeps the ability to go totally stock. I'm very happy with my phone.

    I don't recommend to waste the time with this semi-functional ROM. WiFi works on i337 but is very very slow even if you flash any modem or modules. Aroma installer didn't install what I selected. For example Wanam is missing. Also Rom is a little bit Laggy and has many small problems.
    How is possible to make a stock rom semi functional ??? I did everything correctly, there was nothing complicated to do. Sometimes when i want to reboot i see default options, sometimes i see advanced options. Probably he did something wrong with wanam xposed and aroma installer. I still can't believe this rom didn't worked for my i337.
    You don't know what are you talking. Imagine i make a ROM that is not tested at all and i tell you that is perfect and you do something wrong with your phone , imagine such a gift. First of all this is a stock based rom, you should try hard to do something wrong with it. I found that the problems where caused by the aroma installer which messed some settings. I tried to install it again w/o xposed and now it's working as it should but anyway it is very important to mention the problems with the installer !!!
    If you have an issue with the ROM there is certainly a better way to bring it to the developer's attention. Being rude, offensive, and juvenile is not the proper way to get help or conduct yourself in general. I'm sure if you have a legitimate issue, iB would be more than willing to fix it, but with your terrible attitude, I'm glad you're having problems.
