      No you don't need to flash also the Bootloader.

      If you're on old Knoxfree Bootloader please flash only GSM Modem, with non-hlos.bin (LTE Modem) you'll loose sound and/or WiFi.
      I put it alays in tab CP (CellPhone). Be sure to turn your Phone off and start with the Buttoncombo in Downloadmode.

      Sorry but i'm not very used to bootloaders since i nerver flashed one on my Phone, still on Old 4.2.2 Bootloader.
      But the link on XDA shiould give you the latest Bootloader it's named NG2 but i'm not sure what is inside.
      have read somewhere thst the name is different from NG2.

      The easiest way to get the latest Bootloader is to flash the complete Stockfirmware NG2 with Odin.

      But it's not neccessary to update your BL when using Echoe.

      AWESOME!!
      I swear i was thinking about you when extracting the tar.md5 of the stock rom and had to decide of things to delete (because of space on my pc)
      I was sure you would have them uploaded before the rom!! :clap: :clap: :clap:

      EDIT: For NG8 Base if you want to use stock kernel and have wifi you need to odin flash the non-hlos.bin (ONLY FOR NEW BOOTLOADERS). Up to previous version (v28) i didnt have to.. I still am on NB2 Modem.. I have a thing with trying to avoid odin like the devil :evil: :evil: :evil:
      I dont think the new b/l is necessary for anything..

    • Re: S4 GT-I9505- Modem Thread in XDA

      Since i love my "OLD" bootloader i just forgot to upload it sorry for that.
      But anyway who needs Bootloaders ;)
      I also had the V28.1 running without probs so i think V29 will be like all the other Versions with no need to update BL

    • Re: S4 GT-I9505- Modem Thread in XDA

      The day After I updated the bootloader to kitkat XXXXXNAD,
      Whenever I had to update (new) the Modem, I always flashed via ODiN combined file. Never had any issues.

      Can I go on with the same procedure for NG8 modem ?
      P.S I aways use Custom kernel (Googy max or AEL) :)

      Yes you can ;)

      If you are on KitKat BL it's recommended to flash GSM and LTE Modem
      In this case it should also be possible to use Stock Kernel.

      Guys I REALLY need your help on this!

      I wanted to try the latest modem so I flashed it with odin (only modem.bin since I'm on the old bootloader), and after this I totally lost my LTE/3G conenction. I've tried different modems, full wipe, flash over again, and it still won't work. I'm on 29.1

      Please help! Thanks in advance.
    • Re: S4 GT-I9505- Modem & Bootloader

      Some modems come with two files. In that case you need to flash the modem twice. Also you said bin not tar. Make sure to get a tar file for odin
      It is not said to get better if things change but for things to get better you need change

      No, with old bootloader he needs only the modem.bin file.

      Could be a bad download.
