I would love to know if the baseband/kernel on this would work on the 6603. My feeling is that it wouldn't, and sadly all signs point to the physical radio hardware not supporting AWS.
It makes no real economic sense to use a different radio in the Z, to me, though, due to the way they're constructed - it would be cheaper to use the same hardware across the board, don't you think? I dunno. It's just plain weird. They could have just modified the driver in the kernel. It would be good to know if that is the case.

After flashing several different ROMs, I kept Generic ES one.
I use DooMLorD instruction for rooting newest ROM. Even though it reported ADB outdated and trying to quit, but it's finally done and my Z is now rooted.
Wait a sec, what? Which generic ES rom did you flash on your 6606?
