Ok, so the X10a kits are finally starting to roll out.

I am running an X10i rom (Wolfbreak) on my Att X10a and I was thinking of flashing X10a AM-US GENERIC 1233-8200 but then I thought of something...

If kernel and baseband are the same what is the difference between kits?
Just some lines in build.prop and different bloatware?

If I knew all of the specific differences and none are baseband or kernel related then I could put together an xrecovery package to X10a-ize my rom and not have to mess with flashtool again and hopefully keep root and the tweaks,etc. (not to mention my user data).

So what are the specific differences and would that be possible?

Then why bother with all these kits?
To change some lines in build.prop and add different filler apps?! Are there no area-specific frequencies or channels or whatever that need to be defined?

And I am correct in saying that the kernel & baseband are identical, right?

X10i = HSDPA 900 / 1700 / 2100
X10a = HSDPA 800 / 850 / 1900 / 2100

Hardware is the same but the baseband is different in the sense that certain frequencies are disabled and others enabled this saves battery power in terms of scanning.

That is not at all correct. .

It is the hardware that does this (the radio) the baseband is not changed

Almost

You guys almost got me all excited. I'm on a third party carrier with an x10a that uses T-Mobiles network. Almost had me thinking there could be a software work around to get 3G out of it. Oh well. :D
