[Q] Baseband version on an SGH-T959, Samsung Vibrant
Baseband version on an SGH-T959, Samsung Vibrant
Greetings XDA Community!
Thank you for providing such an outstanding service. I have been lurking for quite awhile now and have been successful in rooting and customizing several phones using the information found here. I could not have done so without you... so thank you again!
Onto my question, and forgive me if my google-fu isn't up to snuff and I missed the answer in another thread...
I have an older Samsung Vibrant (SGH-959) Android Phone with the T959UVKA7 baseband version.
I have found a later baseband available for install: as seen on TMO's page... (as a new user, I cannot post URL. Sorry)
I performed the update on the Vibrant via the “Kies Mini” application and successfully booted into the updated OS, with baseband T959UVKB5.
However, whenever I install the ClockWorkMod Recovery, and flash CyanogenMod OS (I've tried all the versions (7.2, 10.0, 10.1, 10.1.2, 10.1.3RC) the baseband gets reverted back to the A7 over the B5. So... I re-installed (Oden'ed) back to factory OS, and Kies back to B5 to try again... but no deal, still reverts after flash.
My question is do I care? I am of the understanding that my crappy GPS performance, and related buggy behavior has been somewhat addressed by the later baseband... If I do care, how do I keep the phone at the later baseband when I flash ClockWorkMod or CyanogenMod?
I respectfully await some clarity on the issue. Thank you in advance! Cheers!
