the flashing issue has been discussed so much the last few weeks that i  
honestly do not understand, how you can come up with the questions again.
the archives ar full with multiple times the answers.

for checking your current fw version, command is at+cgmr.
if you never knowingly updated your modem's firmware and nobody did it for  
you, you very likely don't have fw 11.

please, read the full page, not just the first ten lines or so!
in the last part is described how to do everything by simply booting an  
get that image, write it to an sd card, boot from said sd card, watch the  
automatic flashing, done.
