Flashing Firmware and Modem won't erase any data, correct? Do we know of any specific benefits of the new firmware and modem? I know they are usually better but anyone familiar? Thanks.

Shouldn't erase any data. If you flash the full tar file, it'll wipe you. That's for flashing to stock. Just updating bootloader and modem shouldn't erase anything (unless you do something dumb).

New firmware (if you mean bootloader) really doesn't do much but some ROMs (mostly stock ones) make sure your bootloader is a certain version. We're on T-Mobile so there isn't much to worry about since their bootloaders are unlocked to begin with so far.

New modems usually incorporate fixes and what not, but it's really YMMV. I usually go with the latest and if it seems worse I would just go back. I've never had to do this before though. I either don't notice much change at all, or at least know it's not going backwards. As far as my experiences with T-Mo HTC HD2 on AT&T, AT&T S3, and T-Mo S5. =)

BTW, I'm on AT&T LTE with G900T.

And thanks OP. =)

Any plans to make this a rooted flashable zip? I was thinking about it, but haven't had the time yet.

For all you stock rooted peeps that could not OTA:

Flashing the full tar will not wipe phone IF coming from the stock rom. All data and apps in tact. But it will remove root (superuser still present but does not work) and it will replace your custom recovery with the stock recovery. Simple to get back root with CF Auto root, and you can either Odin a custom recovery or use something like TWRP Manager (root) to get back recovery.

Does anybody know what the improvements are over the NH5 Modem? I flashed, and everything is running great. The radio seems more "responsive" to tower hops, and latches faster. Seems more stable. Will update in a few days.

From what I read, it's more focused on improvements to sms/mms over wifi. Possibly some VoLTE improvements as well.

Firmware at 2MB? Looks more like just bootloader.

Question
What are the advantages to upgrading the bootloader if I'm rooted with a custom recovery? Are there any? I googled and couldn't find any answers.

Also, is there a bugfix/changelog for it?
