YOU HOLD MYSELF AND XDA FREE FROM ANY LIABILITY BY FLASHING THIS RADIO. DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK. WE ACCEPT NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR WHAT YOU DO TO YOUR PHONE




IN ORDER TO ACCEPT ANY FUTURE UPDATES YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO FLASH BACK THE STOCK 4.4 RADIO. FAILURE TO DO SO MAY LEAD TO A BRICKED DEVICE WHEN ATTEMPTING TO UPDATE.


I managed to get my hands on the 4.4.3 Radio for the Droid Ultra, Maxx, and Mini. I have attached two files below, one containing the files for the new 4.4.3 radio and one with the stock 4.4 19.6.3 radio. Download both.

Instructions.

1) Download both radio files.

2) Unzip the 4.4.3 files into the same folder in which you have adb setup. In my case this is c:/sdk/platform-tools

3) Open a command prompt and navigate to that directory

4) run the command
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
5) run the commands below to flash the 4.4.3 modem


Code:
fastboot flash modem NON-HLOS.bin
fastboot erase modemst1
fastboot erase modemst2
fastboot flash fsg fsg.mbn
fastboot reboot
5) When the phone is rebooted navigate to phone info and verify the new baseband version.

6) To return to stock 4.4 19.6.3 radio, simply remove the files you placed in platform-tools, and replace them with their 4.4 counter parts. Then repeat steps 1-5.

Been running the baseband while porting 4.4.3 and found no issues so far.

Thanks for sharing. I don't think I'll flash it unless there's some dramatic improvements over the current baseband you've noticed.

Wiping battery stats has the same influence over battery life as waving a dead chicken over your phone does; none, per Google.
If your sig takes up more screen real estate than most of your posts, maybe you should trim it a bit...

I would also like to know if this patch might improve GPS signal.

Yes you can install the radio if on 4.2.2. I have attached the stock 4.2.2 files here for you guys. If I recall correctly the baseband controls GPS so yes an improvement can be made.

Thanks, very much appreciated and thanks for this upgrade Installed without issue.

I watched my network signal strength numbers for a few minutes before and after. It seems reception is very slightly better, at least for this one location I very briefly tested in. I didn't have a good way to tell if GPS is better or not.

Before upgrade:
Droid MAXX (Rooted, locked bootloader)
4.2.2 (12.15.15)
Baseband radio (MSM8960BP_2323.024.95.00R)

best
1x= 91dbm
4G= 110dbm

avg
1x= 94dBm
4G= 114dBm

worst
1x= 97
4G= 117
After upgrade:
Droid MAXX (Rooted, locked bootloader)
4.2.2 (12.15.15)
Baseband (MSM8960PRO_BP_2323.038.123.00R)

best
1x= 89dbm
4G= 108dbm

avg
1x= 92dbm
4G= 114dbm

worst
1x= 97dbm
4G= 117dbm

Topsnake, just to let you know the link you posted for the 4.4 radios directs me to the 4.4.2 radios, I was able to get the stock 4.4 radios from your other thread, but I just wanted to let you know so you could update this thread.
