    Need help debranding W995 UK

    Hi,
    I bought a unlocked W995 from ebay however it comes with Orange software and I would like to make it generic.
    Im not sure which version of firmware to get. I live in the UK not sure if that matters.

    Current version installed is: 1215-8017 R1HA035 091210

    Thanks!

    Hi,first check cid on your phone.If it is up to cid53 then you can do that,if it is cid81 then you have to take it to some unlock/repair shop.

    Post here log from A2 uploader latest version.

    Thanks for the reply, I downloaded the A2Uploader v5 posted in the sticky and when I try using it I cant get it to work it just keeps sitting on hold "c" and insert USB.

    I turned the phone off and removed then replaced the battery. I also tried holding 2+5 instead to no success.

    You are welcome,you can use any cid53 version.

    Downoad these 3 files and you must extract generic main and FS file from winrar,just right click on winrar file and click extract,choose location...i prefer desktop.

    Downloads - c905custpack - C905_1209-4776_R5A_GENERIC_ADRIATIC - Top Sony

    Downloads - R1GA031_RED53 - Top Sony

    Note:there is no custpack for w995 but you can use c905 instead

    Recharge the battery to at least 50%,wait untill flashing is done then disconnect the phone and reinsert battery,switch it on and wait 2-3 minutes untill it is done.If you want make backup of your pictures or something then do that before flashing because everything will be erased.
