Default [Q] What about upgrading baseband (JB 4.3)

Hey,

I'm planing to upgrade my Xperia T from 4.1 to 4.3.

Filesystem will be updated through CWM, as well as the kernel. But what about the baseband ?

I only see some comments about using Flashtool to update the kernel (if it's not available in the zip file that will be use to upgrade filesystem with CWM). But when I see some screenshots from people using JB 4.3, in the "About the phone" section, the baseband ends with *-60 when on my JB 4.1, I'm still with a bseband ending with *-56...

I've discovered that every ROM has its own baseband number in About phone and flashing just the baseband from another ROM has no effect on that but does affect your phone's ability to connect to the data network.

My open questions:
Why do many developers host their downloads on spammy file hosting sites?

My devices:
Sony Xperia TL on PureXT 4.3
HP TouchPad 32GB on JCSullins's CM11
Microsoft Surface 2 RT 32GB

My guides:
Upgrading Xperia TL to 4.3 to keep root, data, and LTE
Resizing internal partitions on Xperia T/TL/V (and others)

I'm not ready for the upgrade but fore sure, when I will be, I will update the baseband. I just would like to know if there is a particular reason why nobody speak about that...

---

And from what I know, yes the baseband is related to the ability to connect to a network. But maybe not only, I read that the baseband of a Samsung has something to do with the GPS.

Anyway, as upgrade from 4.1 is a major upgrade, I think that it's better to upgrade this baseband.
