This is a tutorial about how to extract baseband ONLY from a .tar.md5 ROM zip.
U can download the latest firmware from
What u need?
- Firmware with desired baseband
- Cygwin (get it from http://www.cygwin.com/)
- Install Cygwin and start the Cygwin terminal
- Put the .tar.md5 firmware into c:\baseband
- In cygwin, type the following command
cd /cygdrive/c/baseband tar -xvf firmware_name.tar.md5 amss.mbn tar -H ustar -c amss.mbn > baseband.tar
P/s: If the firmware_name.tar.md5 is I8150DXLM3_I8150OLBLD1_I8150DXLM2_HOME.tar.md5
Then the code will be:
cd /cygdrive/c/baseband tar -xvf I8150DXLM3_I8150OLBLD1_I8150DXLM2_HOME.tar.md5 amss.mbn tar -H ustar -c amss.mbn > baseband.tar
After all the code typing, u will get the desired baseband.tar which can be flashed as one package by using Odin. U can flash the baseband no matter u are using custom ROM or Stock ROM.
Just a advise, baseband is region-dependent. Although it is still working worldwide, u might have the problem of not receiving sms/call if u are using a baseband from another region.
