    I recently had to use the sbf file to recover my phone. Luckily I had a nandroid backup (CM 5.0.6.2 with baseband update already applied) to restore after I flashed a recovery and rooted with DM Updater.

    Thing is, the sbf file flashes 2.0.1. I don't remember if it touches the radio firmware (I didn't look). All I did was restore my NAND backup once everything was running again. I know I can look in About Phone, but I'm not sure if that's just reading a text file that was restored, or if it's truly reading the correct versions of the software.

    Long story short, I just want to know if my baseband was downgraded with the sbf and re-upgraded with the NAND restore. Thanks.

    You baseband was downgraded with the .sbf and still is

    A nandroid restore does not include the baseband, as it is separate from the ROM.

    If you want the new baseband again, you will need to reflash it.

    Thanks, I just wanted the confirmation.

    I called someone and they said I sounded static-y, which is why I asked. Currently it does show in settings I'm on the latest baseband, but I'll try to upgrade to the one on Rom Manager.
