I believe the flash driver is for the flash software to communicate with the phone the way it wants it to (in update/maintainance mode, not the usual phone or files transfer mode).

Re: Flash/Debrand your sony ericsson w580i for FREE

When reading this thread I had a feeling that I would have a problem. And so it was.Here I would like to give a couple of hints for those who are as unlucky as me.
1. When installing drivers, your phone should be _not_ connected. If it _was_ connected, you can disconnect it and plug into a different USB port.
2. My antivirus program has detected a dialer in SETools v 11. Some web sites claim that this is a fault alarm. Just to be on a safe side I would recommend to download v 10, which was clean (or not detected :-)
3. It is not clear how to connect the phone. The procedure should look the following
A. Press the "FLASH" (or whatever you need) button. The green status bar will start.
B. (Switch off your phone.)  Disconnect the battery. Connect it again. Hold the "C" button. Plug in the USB cable.
There some information start apear in the left winndow. It will show the progress, something like 100 from 460 blocks are read.
4. I would also recommend to "Identify" the phone first; and to "Read" the flash memory second.
5. When debranded something went wrong with my phone. It looks like the screen had a very low resolution. But the phone asked to update itself. The whole procedure took about 20 minutes, but it is fine now.

Re: Flash/Debrand your sony ericsson w580i for FREE

I just debranded my phone today using a differnt program (A2 uploader, SE pc suit, and SE update service). I was looking on the SonyEricsson website under support and found a link at the bottom of the page uder the heading "Your Phone" that says "Internet Settings" and "MMS Settings". I just clicked those links and followed the instructions (which was quite easy). Now MMS settings along with Internet settings are correct with little effort.
