    Hello folks,

    Right, I have searched but don't seem to be able to find an answer so apologies if this has already been asked:

    In a nutshell, my (Voda)phone came (last week) with v2.3.5, BUKJ3/BUKI1/VODKI2. I rooted via CF-Root, and all was fine and dandy. I then - for reasons quite unclear to myself - updated it today via Kies to ICS. Hmm, not keen I thought, no worries, I'll restore the nandroid I took before updating and maybe try ICS again at a later date (probs through a custom rom)

    After restoring, all is seemingly well, except I still have a phone/baseband version of BULP6. Of course now Kies is having a hissy fit and tells me my device isn't supported. That's not really a worry, as I'm quite happy to use Odin but my questions are; 1)are there likely to be any knock-on effects of having mismatched version numbers, and 2) should I change it back?

    I've come from HTC Desire ownership, so I've some idea about what I'm doing (I surmise the baseband is the equivalent of a Radio in HTC devices, hence CWM not backing it up/restoring it?) but always like to get an expert opinion where possible. Ta! :D

    1. Absolutely not. Actually that is what is called a frankenstein firmware i.e. a firmware made of parts of various firmwares. I am myself running a frankenstein firmware I salvaged.

    2. No (or upto you). It's actually better to have a more latest baseband/radio/modem.
