How to reprogram the U601_RF baseband ic?

Text:

Hi to everybody, i have a question and like the title, i want to know how to reprogram the U601_RF ic on the iphone 5, because, im about to change mine because it has physical damage, and its blinking to me "error 16", i have heard than i have to insert the serial number of my device on the ic to be paired with the baseband main chip, others tell me about i have to change U4 (Nand Flash) U501_RF (Baseband main chip) and U601_RF to have a successful repair... and others tell me about its not necessary to do anything... just replace it and restore the iPhone, because its a programmable ic, and the  U501_RF programs it in the restore... i heard all this theory's but i don't have any proof of this... so... i want to know this 3 things

- I need to reprogram it?

- How i can do it?

- Anybody have do this repair yet? (not for iCloud hardware removal, only for solve error 16 from physical damage in the ic, before i have the error, the phone turns on normally but it doesn't gave signal, after i decided to restore and it gives me that error)

Thanks to everybody for any response, i want to solve my problem and discuss about this theme.

PD: im going to do the ic replacement when it arrives, and in that moment i will know the truth, but  this post its for know about if i have to order any other thing, and again... discuss this enigmatic theme!
