Default Updating phone

Quick question. I know how to do it and all but for ever new update for the phone do I have to flash the new full firmware in Odin to get the full benefit or just new modems? I'm running a bng3 based rom and I want to update to bng4 would I have to do a firmware update through Odin and wipe everything or just flash the new modem if there is one and I'm all set?

You need to flash both files. Flashing just the modem just updates your modem and bootloader.

Thanks for the nice and easy answer haha. Will flashing firmware wipe my phone though?
