So I've rooted & flashed new custom ROM's on my Galaxy i9000 & P5100, specifically to improve performance, though some technicalities still elude me.
For eg. my P5100 has CyanogenMod 11-20140504-NIGHTLY-p5100 though the baseband version states P5100XXCLI5
On SamMobile there is newer versions, though the downloads are around 1GB, and relates to specific countries, whereas a custom ROM is around 200MB.
Model name: GALAXY Tab 2 10.1
Country: Austria (Orange)
Version: Android 4.2.2
Build date: Sat, 04 Jan 2014 07:15:13 +0000
Product Code: ONE
Surely the device will function better with the newer baseband (firmware), however, flashing the incorrect one via Odin could brick the device.
Therefore, how would I go about selecting the newest baseband (firmware) if my country is not even listed ? ...
