Re: Flash/Debrand your sony ericsson w580i for FREE

ATT was kind enough to provide the subsidy unlock code for my W580i, and that worked perfectly, but found out what debranding could do for the phone, so I tried using the updated instructions posted by redburn_38 (and referencing the original post).

The debrand went well on a MacBook Pro running Windows XP Pro and using the right USB port. This phone is going to be a fantastic backup for my iPhone. What is also pretty cool is when I tried running the Sony Ericsson Update Service through Parallels 3.0 on my own MacBook Pro, it updated the firmware just fine using the provided instructions. I wasn't sure how well it work work through virtualization. Debranding may still require Windows, but it looks like I might be able to do it on my Mac. (I do not run Boot Camp)

As an aside, I also called ATT this morning to see if I could get the subsidy unlock for my older W810i, and they were more than happy to provide it. I thought that asking for 2 unlocks in 3 days might be pushing it, but I really appreciate ATT's willingness to provide those for me. I don't know what official qualifications you must have to get the unlock codes, but I've been with ATT for 5 years, and this policy makes me more than happy to stay with them. Thank you ATT!

Last week I got my three w580i phones unlocked exactly 101 days after starrting out as first-time customer of AT&T wireless. I think the requirements are that your account has to be in good standing for 90 days, the phones must have been purchased from AT&T or an authorized dealer and international dialling has to be enabled.
 
There is some confusion about 90 days vs 180 days, but in my case I got my phones unlocked after 101 days.

I got an error also but mine was relalated to CID53...  I've been trying to flash similar Main and FS but I heard there are neither of these for CID53.. (Unlock Network/Debrand)  Does anyone have a fix or patch or a link to what might help to get past the CID53....  I might try to test point it but I'ld rather have it working correcty cause that could fry the hardware (Which I'm very close to trying cause I got the phone for $20 as a refurb)...
I normally work with Moto but thought I'ld see what this phone was like ($20 why not)...
I like it but I'm a modder so as soon as I got it, I started researching and got connected (SEMC Device)...
I like the SE w580i other than the "humm" once and a while during calls (Refurb what can I say...  Hardware issue I'm going to "look into"...

Thanx in advance

WARNING: What ever you do, be careful...no matter what anyone says, not knowing what you are doing (or following the advice "it's easy, just go for it" ) can easily turn your $50.00 to 599.00 phone into a paperweight.  You can mod your phone, for sure, many do... but you can also break it permanently and void the warranty, too.

Got 1 answer...  ATT will be PROUD!!



"Thank you for contacting Sony Ericsson Online Support.


Sony Ericsson does not support "modding" your phone with debranded software. You may, however, be interested in the Developer World area of the Sony Ericsson website: http://developer.sonyericsson.com/site/global/home/p_home.jsp  
                    
If you require more information, or have any other questions, please visit our website at http://www.sonyericsson.com or call us at 1-866-766-9374.

I'm at developer but haven't received an answer there yet...

Moto supports Modders (sort of LOL)

     Then you take that upon yourself to set that expectation, however the moderators/fellow members here and or AT&T will/would/should not set that expectation and or should not be setting that expectation due to there having been/will be liability issues for AT&T if they do support it openly and or indirectly promote it and or support it, and if someone does something to their device and cant fix it by flashing it and or modding it and they got the info from any part of AT&T, they can/could attempt to hold AT&T responsible for any and or all damages incurred. Thus the warning that I gave and that any other member of these here privately owned and operated and run forums would of done in time, and many of the moderators if they seen this may of posted a warning message in  itself as well.

Re: Flash/Debrand your sony ericsson w580i for FREE

Hello, I just flashed my phone's firmware and now I got no ATT logo on the screen no more Smiley Very Happy I wonder, can I update for better firmware through SE Update? I notice in new firmware, I cannot change "up" navigation key. It got reserved  for camera. What's up with that?

Re: Flash/Debrand your sony ericsson w580i for FREE

I know that it's been said MANY times in this thread, but were there ANY disadvantages to doing this, and what were they?(In case there were some that hadn't been mentioned)

And as for the texting issue, I don't have Picture or media messaging, I just have regular unlimited texting. Should I have a problem with texting when I debrand my phone? Because I use texting a LOT.

Oh and I heard that the Shake feature in the Walkman application doesn't work after this. Is that true?

My dicontent stems from the fact that ATT will not aide those who wish to have unbranded firmware.  Those who have expertise or wish to dive in to the system of "their phone" alike would profit not only the consumer but the manufacturer/ATT as well.
Here are few:

1. If you modd or attempt to mod your phone
   a. The consumer will VOID their warranty: You break, it you fix it..  One word "Money" Yes YOU the consumer is responsible for your own phone.  But if the unbranded firmware was available from a source that is reliable and works with the software every day (ATT / Manufacturer) then those who do choose to take their phones into their own hands could more indirecty aide the companies with their own findings which inevitably happens...

2. Owning a modded phone is an attention getter.  Hence ATT iS mentioned every time someone asks about the phone.  ( I go out of my way to endorse ATT because I see the benefits ( That is my "OPINION" )  All others will still be branded...

3.  Beta Testing:  Isn't that all it comes out to be...  Sure there will be disadvantages for the consumer (Beta usually has bugs hence beta..  Don't people get paid to test software???  Modders do it for themselves and others for free... 

I'm sorry but I don't see the harm to either the consumer nor the service provider/manufacterer when individuals choose knowing full well and having been told
You break it, you fix it or you buy a new one.  Most of the time those modders have more than one phone and at least one is originally from the source (ATT) and I know in my case all the phones I have had and have are originally from ATT/Cingular...  Only one wasn't (ROKR E2: only because it was scrapted  by ATT after they choose against releasing it or whatever the reasoning...)

All you have to do is look at the 2 posts above to see people are still going to do this no matter what is warned...  AND THEY WILL CONTINUE TO POST BUGS, SEEK SOLUTIONS AND MAKE SOLUTIONS IN AN  ARENA WHERE ALL WILL BENEFIT AT NO COST.
