    "-Baseband Version VS740MVB.5210.1015: (new radio.img)
    Flash this just like a kernel. You must reboot into recovery once more after installing to wipe your cache.
    *Only flash once! I cannot be held liable for any damage caused to your device by flashing this!"

    If you back rev to Velocity 0.2 from Velocity 0.3, do you need to redo the Baseband update, or is it permanent?

    Where did you get this from and does it add improvements to the radio and the standby cell usage and supposedly bad signal the phone is seeing?

    I think it's permanent. Mine has "stuck".

    is there some secret to this? i've tried updating my radio through hboot when it's named PB31IMG.zip or renamed to update.zip. i've md5 summed the file. i've tried to update through ClockworkMod, i've wiped the cache (through ClockworkMod) after i update. i've booted and rebooted and i'm still stuck on 1.00.03.04.06.

    i have a droid incredible running Cyanogen 6.0.1, S-Off.

    one thing to note is when i get into hboot it scans my sdcard and prints out a couple filenames like update.zip and PB31IMG.zip, and they all say either "no image!" or "no image or wrong image!"

    .:EDIT:. i recorded a video of the hboot screen, now i know exactly what it says. right now the baseband .zip is named "PB31IMG.zip" and on the root of my sdcard.
    Code (Text):
    1. SD Checking...
    2. Loading...[PB31DIAG.zip]
    3. No image!
    4. Loading...[PB31DIAG.nbh]
    5. No image or wrong image!
    6. Loading...[PB31IMG.zip]
    7. No image!
    8. Loading...[PB31IMG.nbh]
    9. No image or wrong image!
    notice how it says "no image!" when PB31IMG.zip is on the card, and seems to infer PB31DIAG.nbh and PB31IMG.nbh are somehow different (because they get a different error)

    Well, I believe your problem is that this particular file is for the Ally specifically.

    lol that sounds like a serious problem indeed!

    the link i downloaded the radio from is on an incredible message board, and i got linked to it from (i think) the incredible forum here. do you know where i can get an incredible baseband?

    Ahh well that explains it then... I did think it was rather odd you were in the LG Ally forum looking for a fix for an HTC-Incredible. Have you posted this question in the forum HTC Incredible - Android Forums ? Probably can find some help there. Good luck to you, Sir. (Or Madam)

    this was from the stock ROM:
    Code (Text):
    1. Model: ADR6300
    2. Hardware: 00002
    3. Firmware: 2.1-update1
    4. Baseband: 1.00.03.04.06
    5. Kernel: 2.6.29-cc1c2268
    6.         htc-kernel@and18-2 #1
    7. build: 1.22.605.2 CL161494 release-keys
    8. Software number: 1.22.605.2
    9. Browser: WebKit 3.1
    10. PRI: 1.28_002
    11. ERI: 5
    but i recently updated to Cyanogen 6.0.1 so i dont know exactly which software youre asking about, i cant find anything in the "about phone" mentioning software on this ROM.

    btw, my radio was the official eclair radio, i'm pretty sure it was the last or second to- of the 1.XX series

    i'm running froyo now, specifically CyanogenMod 6.0.1

    that code snippet from my last post is from my "about phone" BEFORE i updated to CM. i posted it to you could see where i came from, for example why my radio was so old.

    my signature reflects my phone currently.

    .:EDIT:. seeing as how i've kind of derailed this thread into a discussion about an incredible, and this is the Ally forum, should i start a new thread on the Inc board?

    I've used it on Velocity 0.3 and an alpha of 0.4, and there is no noticeable difference.
