25/5 2011: Changed topic, since a baseband related thread seemed to be missing. I have now put the 502 baseband on my phone, and it seems to be really good.

Installation procedure for Baseband.

Backup phone, use Titanium Backup or My Backup pro and make a nandroid backup in recovery.

Go here and get the baseband and utility to install it.

Format cache/data/system in the Clockworkmod recovery menu - mounts and storage.. Go to advanced and wipe Dalvik Cache and battery stats.. And Fix Permissions.
Now you can either restore your nandroid or install a clean rom..

Okay, so i sit and browse thru all the threads in the LG o2x section, and i start wondering why the discussion suddenly is about baseband in the various topics.. I upgraded to 405, and i have had some issues, i dont know whether they are related to the rom, the baseband or just a plain phone bug..

Issues i have had:

1. GPS wont lock at all.. Or i get lock after 15 minutes, but after reboot GPS refuses to lock again..
2. My Mobile data is very unstable, disconnects constantly and also gives browser freezes..
3. In call sound is very bad, distorsion is high, and sounds like people i talk with i holding a cloth on their microphone..

So, could someone give an explaination to what the baseband does ?

I am using the 1035.21_20110306 baseband and I am having no issues. (CyanogenMod 7 - Nightly). Also, it was V10b from the beginning and still no updates for the phone from LG (Not that I need one).

Okay - i have been using 405 since it was found.. So i'd like to get a hold of the 218, to test it out..

So to whom might find the 218, 306 or whatever they find, please post links in here, and i will try to put them all in first post..

you can get all the basebands from nasihrameds [Firmware] Thread. The archives contain the *.fls files for smartflash.

0218 is included in the earliest UK Firmware for example (and also in the Singtel variants if I remember correctly).

Edit: To answer your question from the Nightly's thread:

The maintainer of the O2X cm_arcee uses the 20110218 baseband, so you can expect a similar expierience to his, and probably avoid bugs he won't fix because they are related to the baseband being different.

Hey thx man - Although they are not extracted.. Is it possible to apply the baseband without it wiping the phone ?

well I don't think downloading and extracting them isn't that much of a hassle ;)

I don't know if the smartflash wipes your phone, as far as I remember mine wasn't wiped BUT, it overwrote my recovery partition (reverted to stock) so I wiped the phone by accident when I tried to get into CWM again ^^.

I guess you could always do a nandroid backup before flashing the baseband to be on the safe side.

Just a heads up, changing the baseband, make nandroid backup first. Baseband formats cache and data patition, so you will reboot onto a clean rom afterwards. Recovery isnt erased though.. Good luck peeps, im now on 218..

since the baseband resides in another location as the ROM, it cannot be flashed using CWM. Smartflash is the only solution so far.

baseband 1035.21_20110223
factory version V10A

FR15 rom

stable as hell...

the GPS problem i hade was fixed in the hidden menu (within 10 secs i have GPS)

doing this
To get it to work as flawless as before upgrading to FR15, I have made the following adjustments that seem to work well:

1. Go into the LG hidden menu
2. Go into GPS Test
3. Go into System Settings
4. MOLR Protocol (is set to User-Plane)
5. SULP Setting -> SLP Server Setting, I created a new one for the nokia servers (slp address: supl.nokia.com, port: 7275, no cert and no TLS setting)
6. SLP Auto Provision is activated

    my friend have an lg p990 too.

    i have bb824, no random reboot, no bsod, sound qulality perfect, imei check also ok(!)

    my friend flashed 824 too, but he have a problem with the imei, and the sound quality not so good, so he flashed back the 823 and everything is fine again.

    for me 823 having terrible sound quality, but i have no problem with the 824, its just perfect.

    so i definetly say this: this two model is not the same, however in the phone about page both reported as p990, but mine is older than my friend. at least i think this because the serial number.

    so anybody who have much better sound quality with the su660, and terrible with the p990 baseband use the 824bb. it will not burn out the imei, not doing anything wrong!!

    if the p990 based baseband have a good sound quality you should use 823 instead of 824.

    my phone manufactured in korea, my friend phone manufactured in germany (t-mobile).

    both phone is Lg optimus 2x brown, same model number, same rom, the only difference if the serial number, not just the second part, but the whole number have a lot difference too.

    however i see some o2x what is from germany but the serial number is similar to my phone serial number.

    so the korean model and the german model is different. the korean working great with the SU660 baseband, the german model working with the P990 baseband.

    the two models act different with the custom roms and kernels too. what is working for someone, dont work for the others.

    i think thats why have so many experiences with the bsod and the others issues too.
