I have 2 Galaxy S2 phones.

One is stock and the other is rooted.

I would like to make a complete backup including the android OS plus the baseband firmware and restore it on the other phone which is rooted.

I am selling these phones and want to keep them stock.

The rooted version has some problems and I want to keep it stock.

Its an

GT-I9100M model

I found a program that can do a backup but it doesn't include the baseband firmware.

I already searched for the stock firmware but its not available anywhere.

From what I can gather (And please correct me if I'm wrong) you want both phones to be on the completely stock firmware before you sell them? What you can do is use a program called Odin, and flash the stock firmware (Including baseband) for your model which can be downloaded from here. Let me know if you still have questions I'll be happy to help you out!

THe problem is its no longer available. I can't find it anywhere.

Thats why I rather just copy it from the other phone.

After some more looking it's available from here for you to download from here (I made sure that the links are working).

I need version 2.3.3

The phone runs badly on any other firmware.

What you could do is install a custom recovery through Odin on the unrooted phone (Such as CWM), then using the custom recovery make a backup. Transfer this backup to the other phone and flash that through a custom recovery. Then using Odin you can re-flash the stock recovery to each device, unroot the device you rooted and your setup will be back to stock. Let me know if you still have questions on anything I mentioned.
