Sorry for the late reply, I am just returning from job travel..

I didn't flash either of the 2 methods posted by hush66 but I use some parts of them.

0 - My Xperia was at .434, rooted, and PC companion tell me that I have an upgrade
1 - I downloaded the update with PC companion without flashing my phone.
2 - I read some noobs guide and make an FTF file with Flashtools ==> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2188129
3 - I read another noobs guide and make an Zip file ==> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2183077
4- I added some files that was in the Wawyed .Zip for pre rooted and dual recovery ==> C6603_10.1.1.A.1.253_CE_v5.zip, for that I made a compare with TotalCmd between this .ZIP and the one I compiled with my firmware.
4 - Finally I use the same method described by Wawyed with my own rom, et voila.

I have no problems and all sony's applications run like a charm. thank to all who participated to my education


Yes, I use these methods but don't flash theirs FTF or .ZIP directly, as I explain above.

Thanks! Just wanting to know, if you do unlock your bootloader, and backup your TA, there is no real safe way to actually relock your bootloader right? Right now I've only rooted with a locked bootloader, as playing with your TA is risky they say.

This is similar to the "radio" image of the HTC devices.

You're almost right. Basically the baseband/radio-partition is the operating system that the main processor (Snapdragon S4 Pro) will boot on the modem co-processor (Gobi MDM9215M) to control communication. It mostly contains calibration data for the different radio frequencies and communication modes as well as software that abstracts this data into a common format for the Android operating system running on the main processor. Usually on Android (and most other) platforms there is a non-flashable bootloader for this co-processor which starts it up and waits for the baseband/radio-partition to be loaded into its memory.
