FAQ:

Q: Should I flash this in the Phone section in Odin?
A: No, see beginning of the post.

Q: Do I need to wipe anything before/during/after flashing this?
A: No

Q: Can I flash this if I am running an AOSP rom? (CM9,CM10, AOKP, etc)
A: Yes, this is not dependent on what your phone is running.

Q: Do I need to be rooted to install this?
A: Not if you choose the Odin method, you need a custom recovery to flash using the other method.

Q: Will this wipe my data?
A: No, it will ONLY update your baseband, nothing else. Everything in your ROM should act just as it has.

Q: How can I check that it's been updated?
A: Go to Settings > About Device > Baseband version

Q:So flashing via Twrp is ok to do now with these?
A: Yes

Q: Is it just as safe to flash in recovery as it would be to odin them?
A: Pretty much, I threw checks in there to make sure you were flashing to a d2vzw and it checks the file's hash before flashing

Q: It's not working by flashing via recovery! I get something like this:
assert failed: getprop("ro.product.device") == "d2vzw" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "d2vzw"
E: error in /emmc/VRLHD.modem.zip
(status 7)
A: It's failing the assert. These check what device you have and older versions of clockworkmod didn't have the proper device in there. Update your recovery first. EZ Recovery can do this for you or you can grab something from here: http://goo.im/devs/i...i535/recoveries then try again

Q: I flashed <X> rom, or I restored <Y> nandroid, or I wiped data. Do I need to reflash this modem?
A: No. Roms and nandroids do not include a modem. Your modem will survive these along with a data wipe.

Q: Does flashing a radio affect my wifi or gps?
A: Absolutely not. The only thing it will affect is mobile data.

Q: Do I need to flash an rpm with these? Do these include an rpm?
A: No, no. See here for more info on rpm: http://rootzwiki.com...-rpm-explained/

dumb question that I probably already know the answer to: we just have to flash the most recent one, right?

correct
flashing any of them would replace the one you currently have. you CAN go back to an older one if you so choose
