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

I'm on 4.2.2, could I install the 4.4.3 radio? Where can I find the 4.2.2 radio (12.15.15) files in case I need to go back?

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.
