Is this a roll back of the modem and carrier versions or just a cut and paste oops?

Wow Interesting.

I'd been getting a little better radio performance with the T-Mobile carrier version of the b1.

I hope they don't screw it up with the new modem number in b2!!

For anyone that has issues with the update not showing up, I had to delete profile and install it again for it to show up.
