Default How to: Update your baseband to FC29 (Boost only) (Link is back up)

This is for BOOST ONLY. I am not liable for anything that goes wrong.

1) Download the baseband (basebandFC29), and copy it to your sdcard. (link is back up)
The MD5 for basebandFC29.img is: 301801afa7d43b07c2c0febb447ce46b

2) reboot into CWM, go to "mounts and storage", and mount /system and /sdcard (not USB storage)

3) run an ADB shell (see post below: How to run an ADB shell)

4) in the shell, run the following commands EXACTLY AS THEY APPEAR:
THIS HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BRICK YOUR PHONE. While many people have flashed successfully, it is possible that something could go wrong.
Code:
/system/bin/rmt_storage

md5sum /sdcard/basebandFC29.img
Make sure the output of the above command matches this MD5: 301801afa7d43b07c2c0febb447ce46b
If it doesn't match, STOP THIS PROCESS. Re-download the file and start over from the beginning. If everything looks good, continue with the following commands:


Code:
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6 of=/sdcard/baseband.bak

dd if=/sdcard/basebandFC29.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6

exit
Make sure the above commands finish before you unmount, or terrible things may happen.
5) unmount /system and /sdcard, and reboot your phone. You now have the FC29 baseband, and a backup of your old baseband is on your sd card (baseband.bak).

Thanks to penguinrepair, bads3ctor, and mavrikmeercat for showing me how to do this and providing the baseband file.

Default How to run an ADB shell

If you aren't sure how to run an ADB shell, do this:

1) Download ADB. You can get this from most "one click" packages. Here is one for your convenience: SuperOneClick v2.3.3

2) unzip the archive, and copy the "ADB" folder somewhere. It doesn't matter where, as long as you know where it is.

3) run a command prompt (Start>All Programs>Accessories>Command Prompt).

4) change directories to the "ADB" folder. Use this command:
Code:
cd C:\wherever\you\put\ADB\
5) make sure your phone is plugged in, and USB Debugging is on (settings>applications>development)

6) run this command (in the command prompt) to open an ADB shell:
Code:
adb.exe shell

If you are running Mac or Linux, I expect you to know how to translate these instructions :P

As long as the other commands finished, just reboot. You should be fine.

Sorry for the misunderstanding.. Guess I'm just tired of people jacking shit that other people spend the time making. my appologies to BluFeNIX..

Being that this thread is for baseband I thought i'd share with everyone.
If anyone is looking for another way to update their baseband or you dont have adb installed on your system then you could use Odin.

this is the same file. (Confirmed and working!!) PR gave it to me as well just before BluFenix so I tared and md5sumed it for Odin. I've flashed baseband on several TU's with it since he is ok with us sharing the one he pulled..

Instructions
Windows Only,,

download & unzip attached file to a location on your PC
open it
install samsung drivers (if you dont have them already)
open Odin.exe
click OPS button & select the ops file in the folder
click Phone button & select phone tar.md5 file (if it's shaded out then uncheck one package on the left, then continue)
while phone is not plugged into usb, put it into download mode.

From a powered off phone, hold vol down + camera button + power button untill you see the warning screen and press vol up to accept.

Now plug your phone into usb. you should see the yellow COM box light up in Odin..
hit the start button in odin and let it flash.
Odin will reboot your phone when it's done..

to confirm go to settings > about phone > baseband version and it should be something like #### x FC29

Files VV
FC29Baseband_odinpkg.zip

now he doesn't want to give anything to AF because of this
1) Link is now inactive

2) I did give him credit, read the bold words.

3) This is a publicly available baseband file released by Samsung, isn't it? anyone could have upgraded and made a copy of the baseband for distribution.

I'm sorry if I misunderstood the nature of this file, but unless someone other than Samsung made that baseband, then it is not anyone's privilege to keep from the community.

Edit: I was just informed that this baseband was created by penguinrepair. I was under the impression that it was just a copied Samsung file. The link has been removed permanently, since it is penguinrepair's to release. I am sorry for the misunderstanding.

Edit 2: The baseband was, in fact, created by Samsung. It seems I was correct in my original assumptions.

Default Let me explain this a little better

Penguinrepair did almost all the work getting the new baseband image. It went like this:
  • I gave him my stock Boost backup that I made right after I got my 2nd Boost Transform Ultra and penguinrepair flashed it to his TU
  • Penguinrepair used dd to flash recovery back to stock
  • He then updated to 2.3.6 which flashed the baseband delta patch
  • He then found out which partition was baseband and got a dd image if that
I am probably missing a few steps but thats the gist of it. The problem is not that it's "owned" by penguinrepair....he is open source all the way. It was that it was not tested properly yet and was posted with improper instructions and without attribution. We like to fully test out fixes before we release these kinds of things so as not to cause users problems.

So it was a Samsung-made baseband? The same file I could have obtained if I used the OTA root keeper and upgraded myself?

Thanks for the clarification.

Yes...it's the new boost baseband.....and you could get it that way by dd p6 to sdcard but we did not know it was p6 till penguinrepair figured it out.

Well, then I see no issue with releasing the file. I will, however, leave the link inactive out of respect.

Put it back up...I don't see any problem doing that...but i would add some more red warnings that it's dangerous to dd the baseband.

Edit: Please make sure all the instructions and img file are correct. Hate to brick someone with the wrong instructions or files. baseband.img might be a better name for the file.

Alright, will do. I figured a descriptive name would be better, so as not to confuse it with another baseband file (like a backup).

Also, do we know what happens when the TU tries to boot with a bad baseband? I would assume that recovery/CWM would still be accessible.

Yes.....basebandFC29.img might be better but really does not matter. I don't know what happens if baseband is corrupted but my guess would be ramdump mode. I really don't want to test this!

Agreed. Name changed to basebandFC29.img, link updated, and commands updated.

Edit: MD5 check added to instructions

This baseband is confirmed to work with 2.3.4 and 2.3.6. (I'm using it on 2.3.4 right now with no problems.)

Yes. I normally got 1-2 bars at my desk with the old (EG29) baseband. After updating I consistently get 2-3 bars. I have not checked 3g speeds.

Essentially, it's your modem/radio firmware.

question..? how would one go about checking the md5 before starting this whole process? I'd prefer to be safer than sorry.

Edit: sorry, the check is in adb shell... my noobness...

Make sure the output of the above command matches this MD5: 301801afa7d43b07c2c0febb447ce46b
If it doesn't match, STOP THIS PROCESS. Re-download the file and start over from the beginning. If everything looks good, continue with the following commands:

2 questions.

1) How would I revert back to the old baseband from the bak it makes?

and

2) How to remove CWM again?

I'm trying to get the official 2.3.6 update to see if these issues go away.

I was using ChoznJuan's 2.3.6 with Bobz's kernal and this baseband update.
But I was having issues. Everyone had the settings>status FC. But my camera would freeze alot while using it. Very irritating.

I currently went back to my CWM 2.3.4 backup and it removed Bobz's kernal and put CIQ back. But of coarse the baseband stayed FC29. Some how the screen fix stayed. Weird but cool.

Also did anyone notice the new update uses more of your system space? I have 100mb free but with ChoznJuans I have 84mb free. (I did move his apps he put in sys too, the DSP, Launcher, etc...)

So I'm just wanting to stock OTA update to 2.3.6 so I can gripe at Samsung for any issues after the update.

TIA
Pete

Repeat steps 1-3, and then run these two commands in the ADB shell:
Code:
/system/bin/rmt_storage
dd if=/sdcard/baseband.bak of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6
then you can exit

If you want to go back to 2.3.4 stock, either use Odin: Odin flashing(Return to stock) for the Samsung Transform Ultra
or use chevanlol360's stock ROM: First Stock ROM for the Samsung Transform Ultra

Thanks for the help.

Will ODIN remove CWM?

Cuz I'm already 2.3.4 stock with root. I just need to do the baseband revert and remove CWM.

If you just want to remove CWM, then use the Odin method, but only flash the stock recovery.

Did you try rebooting? What drivers install? (The phone has multiple drivers, each for a different way of communicating with the phone)

Never seen that before.

Does it say "unknown ELF file" on the Phone itself, or on the computer screen? Can you post a screenshot?

BLueFeNiX, I've done this sucessfully several times in terminal emulator as well..

Instructions:
check the md5sum on your computer
Put file on your sdcatd just like stated in the op
unmount from computer
Open Terminal Emulator
Code:
$ su
 
# dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6 of=/sdcard/baseband.bak
 
# dd if=/sdcard/basebandFC29.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6
 
# reboot
Phone will reboot and baseband will be FC29 in Setttings > About Phone > Baseband
PH8AL and dmcjr22 like this.

Could someone please upload their old baseband backup? I was getting much better speeds on that baseband but I flashed via OTA and I doubt samsung stock updater made a backup. Can you flash baseband backups across two different boost transforms or will it brick the phone?

I think I have a backup of my old baseband on my sdcard. If someone else with a backup can tell me what their MD5 is (so I can confirm that I have a good copy), I will post a download to the old baseband.

Also, flashing basebands from different phones is perfectly fine (at least for the TU).

Thanks. Unfortunately, mine is different, so someone else will need to confirm if either of ours are correct. Mine is 7c0a84c944a0ecef80d438021965c0b8

Yeah, it'd be nice. I was actually thinking about downgrading my baseband to compare speeds.

Sinc no one appears to have a backup what is the worst that can happen if I flash my backup and it is bad? I don't wantto brick it as I use it for work.

I'm not sure. Hopefully it would just stop you from making calls or something, and you could flash the working baseband back again. I'm not sure if integrity of the baseband is checked before the phone boots. I would ask some of the more experienced devs.
