My Device: W580

Hello, I just flashed my phone's firmware and now I got no ATT logo on the screen no more 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?
__________________________________________________________________________________________________

DON'T DO A SE UPDATE!!!!  No "SEUS"
Everywhere I have read and what I'm experiencing stems from that fact that there is no CID 53 software "fixed" enough to fix your issues only lock you out worse...  I'd recommend to research more...

@ Wilcre

Could you explain:

"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,"

Since there are "Terms and Conditions" which exonerate ATT??

Please, next time you post a modification guidelines, make sure you do it in your own phone and test it. Are you a businessman that deals with sony ericsson phones with "configuration error" problems? Those reader here are looking for solutions, not destruction of their valuable phones. Topic is W580i NOT W580...files are totally different from the others. All models of SE cellphones files with "i" are different from models without "i". Your method of guidelines is right but your flash files were wrong..just a comment, Thanks!

After flashing my phone a while ago, today I got the chance to test it with a different carrier's SIM and the result was it didn't recognize the SIM. What else do I need to do to get the Network unlocked?

If I didn't have a w580i then I would have posted w580c/w580im but this is listed under w580i yes...
 


Research is the name of the game and if you don't do it, leave your phone branded...

I don't think I needed to say it BUT I didn't post this Topic....  Read the replies from start (page 1) to finish (page xx) in order to understand the issue with updated firmware and flashing/debranding...   Most phones are wrecked/bricked by not understanding, jumping the gun and not reading to get a full grasp of the procedure and what software to use with each phone(s)...

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.

     You know that and i know that, but that does not guarentee that everyone else does, people sued over the fact that they could not replace the battery in the iPhone themselves, now that was not a hidden fact and was publicly addressed, and also people that did the flashing and such would come here get the info, do the flashing, then it goes wrong and hold AT&T responsible due to finding it on their forums, So since there is that possibility it is better to put the warnings in place than not to and put up with the possibility that the forums would and or could be closed down on us.

Relevant pieces highlighted in read. Google JDflasher, see if that works for you.

Do you think this is a problem with my PC's USB port?  with the software/files?  or with the w580 phone itself?

I think the problem is that not too many flashing programs can deal with CID53. I'm no expert in flashing SE, but that's what I've seen when I was looking for options to change language package on my K850i.

Re: Flash/Debrand your sony ericsson w580i for FREE

So after all day of searching... Ive come to the conclusion of this:
 
Apparently they started loading these w580 phones with the new CID 53 firmware, which basically WILL NOT WORK with this tutorial.  Neither the cid53 firmware is included, and from what i understand SEtool does not even support cid53.
 
WARNING:
IF YOU HAVE CID53 YOU WILL NOT HAVE SUCCESS WITH THIS!
 
Apparently the CID53 firmware was just released recently, and is only available on certain sites.  Im a little wary of some of the sites/files that Ive seen, so im waiting a little longer until some more reputable files pop up.
 
Which brings me to my next point:
If anyone knows any English CID53 w580 firmware files that are available, or that you can send me, please let me know.

Thank you.
