How I would go about debranding the software on my K770i? Want rid of the Voda s/w!

Hiya guys,

Is it possible to debrand my k770i myself with the usb cable that comes in the box? I find writing a text really annoying as it lags, unlike my trusty old nokia. I'm thinking its this extra rubbish that Vodafone put on, so would like to put the standard generic SE software on.

I'd rather do it myself rather than pay a shop, can anyone give any tips? :thumbsup:

Cheers,

GW

It's mind boggling at first it is fairly simple once you get the hang of it.

The most important thing is to get your FS (file system) and MAIN (main software) correct then the CDA files.

If either of you need a hand PM me or post here and il do my best.

@ syko67, you could flash your K750 to a W800 and gain a Walkman player, i have the files on my PC as i just reflashed my W800.

I don't get it at all :( I downloaded xs++ 3.2 and got the correct firmware I think (this is the file name: K770_R8BC004_FS_CENT_EUROPE_RED53.fbn)

Here is the info that xs++ gave me on my phone:

15:34:46| Profiling SEMC phone...
15:34:46| Platform: DB2020
15:34:46| OTP CID: 51
15:34:46| EROM CID: 53
15:34:46| EROM Color: Red
15:34:46| IMEI: 35852401xxxxxx
15:34:46| Phone ID: K770
15:34:46| Region: VFE_LIVE_2
15:34:46| CDA: 1202-4294 R7A
15:34:46| Firmware Version: R8BC004
15:34:46| EROM: R3A022
15:34:46| Ready for operation!


In xs++ I connected the phone, selected the software and when I click flash it says phone not supported.

I thought it might have been to do with the usb flash drivers, so downloaded them, but I cant install them as when I plug the phone in, it already seems to be supported (the drivers are already there/doesnt give the option to install drivers), I was thinking that as I have just updated the software via the sony ericsson update thing that the usb flash drivers must be installed from that.

Problems, problems lol.

Any advice would be brill :thumbsup:

Many thanks,

GW

Might have to be a job for Davinciteam, i don't think XS++ supports CID53.

Your drivers are fine or otherwise XS++ would not have even picked it up.

I'm not sure I want to spend any money on paying someone to do it in case it doesn't make the texting faster lol. Many thanks for the info though chaps :thumbsup: Is there any other software which can be used do you know?
