Since I am a new member and can not post a response in the dev forum, I'm posting this here.

I'm currently on the Cm7 RC1 build, but I have updated my baseband to the newest baseband from the 2.3.3 build.

I am currently on baseband I9020XXKB1.

I have been reading in some posts about a new baseband I9020XXKB3 which is supposed to be much better. But I saw someone post about this being only for european phones ?

I was looking for some calcification on the issue.

I am on T-mobile USA, so would it be better if i updated from KB1 to KB3 or remained on KB1

Definitely KB3.
Everything looks better with this version. A must if you plan to flash Voodoo kernel to get rid of "low contrast" or yellow tint issue after upgraded to 2.3.3.

I just updated from kb1 to kb3. Don't notice too much of a difference yet. But still I guess its nice to have the latest and greatest.

Give it a shot. Updating is as easy as flashing a zip in recovery.

flashed the KB3 baseband on cm7 RC1.

I was on the KB1 baseband and applied the KB3 baseband thru clockwork mod.

I am on t-mobile USA and I can not get a 3G connection. All I can get is an EDGE connection...

Any suggestions to obtain a 3G connection ??

Thanks

Check your APN settings in the phone's setting app? Not sure where they're at in Cyanogen, but there should be an option to check them, modify them.

Okay what do I change the APN settings to ?

I also thought baseband version only affected the phones modem ?

What all does the baseband affect ?
