Updating BaseBand.



Short Description: 
Update your phone to latest baseband before installing new ROMs.[current for W8 - 015]
Kernel and baseband are related to each other, so if you have baseband 006, you'll have 2.0.2.A.0.24 kernel, and with baseband 015 you'll get 2.1.1.A.0.6 kernel.
To check baseband -  Settings > About Phone > Baseband version. 

Actual Process:
  • Download Baseband 015 -  Downloads. and install using Flashtool.
  • Put the .ftf file on 'firmware' folder and just press flash on tool. - Detailed procedure.

  7. Works great on W8, used it to upgrade to GingerXperia now, small details that are missing in the steps are you need 7-Zip to be installed first to unzip the Baseband 015 - X8i_2.1.1.A.0.6_Baseband_015.7z
    doesnt work with winzip of winrar. changes the base band & makes installing the Cynogenmod a ease.

    Thanks a Million.
