Hi Guys,
I thought of creating an official Modem list for the Samsung Galaxy Note II N7100 Modems
I will be adding all the modems available in CWM flashable zips.

What is a modem?
Modem/Radio/Baseband is all the same thing and can be seen by going to Settings - About device - Baseband version. It's basically a driver which receives and sends Mobile Network signals as well as handling switching between GPRS, 3G, HSDPA etc....... (but not WiFi connection, that and switchover between Mobile Network and WiFi is handled by the kernel). Reasoning as to why Modem has no influence on WiFi can be found in this post by Entropy

Why?
Sometimes some custom roms come with modems for various regions. If your modem is designed for different regions than yours then the chances are that it will sometime not work with optimal network performance.

You should look into changing your modem if you are experiencing the following... (I'm writing this from my personal experience, so all may not apply to you).

Poor 3G speeds
Very fast battery drain whilst on 3G
Poor call reception

How to check
Settings >> About device >> Baseband version

Requests
If you want I can make CWM flashable zips, I just need modem donors who will send me modem.bin files with relevant versions so that I could build up this list. You are free to PM me as well.
It is not practical for me to go around downloading all the N7100 roms in the world and extract the modem file.

How to Extract

If you have the N7100 rom zip
1. Extract zip
2. Send me a zip file of the following files modem.bin, optional (/system/lib/libril.so, /system/lib/libsec-ril.so)

From an already installed N7100 (if you do not have the ROM zip with you)
First of all you need to extract a modem if and only if you are in following situations
1. You use a network specific rom and you need to backup the network specific modem and move to a custom rom.
2. Your friend is using a network specific rom and you want to use the same modem.

***[WARNING!]Modems are device dependent

To extract the phone you are extracting must be rooted and usb debugging enabled:
Use adb to dump the modem to your internal phone memory, use this command

Code:
adb shell
su
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p10 of=/sdcard/modem.bin bs=4096
exit
The dumped size will be bigger like 88MB don't worry just zip it and send me the link, I will make a CWM Installer.

Cool Extra Info
Region Code
(info referred from geko95gek's post)
The name of the Modem usually specifies the region its intended for, however... this doesn't mean it will work best for you. Classification of the Modem regions is as follows:

CE---> Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands
DC---> Thailand
DD---> India
DX---> Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam
DZ---> Malaysia, Singapore
JA---> South Africa
JC---> Algeria, Morocco, Nigeria, South Africa, Tunisia
JP---> Arabic, Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Morocco, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Syria
JV---> Tunisia, Turkey
UG---> North America
UH---> Latin America, The Caribbean
XE---> Bulgaria, Estonia, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia, Ukraine
XX---> Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, United Kingdom
XW---> Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Nordic, Spain, United Kingdom
ZC---> China, Hong Kong
ZH---> Hong Kong
ZS---> China, Hong Kong
ZT---> Taiwan

After you install the modem, here is how to check the speeds and signal strength

Signal strength and quality can be tested using this app: Network Signal Info

Download and upload speeds on your network with a current Modem can be tested using this app: Speedtest.net

No one knows everything, so i wondered, what are "Modems"? I know those Modems that create connections between 2 points for Internet for example.
But Flashable Android Modems?

You know, I just looked for such thread through XDA yesterday and was surprised I never find one. Ended up grabbing binary from firmware and flashed through Odin

Thanks in advance!

Modem is basically the connection driver software for your mobile device's radios for it to connect to GSM/3G/HSPDA
