    You can view the files on the phone with the latest a2uploader. But I was getting errors when I tried to use the read command on the customize.xml file so I could post it for you.

    I don't think the a2uploader that you posted the link for is the latest one. It said version 4 which sounded good, but it's date is 5/31/09.

    According to this, the latest one is 9/22/09.

    (second post)

    Here's the link I got the 9/22 version from:

    http://www.sony-ericsson.ru/forums2/...e=post&id=2949

    The SE-NSE site gave a link to this page on Sony Ericsson Club. It appears there is some script that can be used with a2uploader to yank the file system. Perhaps, it will work on this phone and I can get to the customize.xml file. There's a guide on there, but I'm too tired to get into it tonight:

    Wirelessly posted (HTC Touch Pro 2: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows CE; IEMobile 8.12; MSIEMobile 6.0))

    From what I read, this version should work with T707.

    I just got this phone today, and was able to extract the customize.xml file. I know nothing about debranding, is this the only file that's needed? Anyway, her is the link: http://www.sendspace.com/file/qjklg3

    Great, thanks for posting this. What program did you use to extract the file? If it was a2uploader, do you know what version? I tried several of them last night and I kept getting errors.

    I think that's the only file needed for now. At least we can start here and see if we can find some things to change before loading a modified version back on the phone.

    Good!!!
    I'll examine the file tomorrow as it'll be my dayoff, as well as will get this phone for experiment.
    Hint: this phone has HK and China Chinese included, can display and input HKSCS characters.
    Another hint: the new Customize.xml file will have ATT data settings too.

    I used a2uploader and CodeClaw File Xtractor. Not sure what version of a2uploader I used, but the date on the title bar says 067/06/2009.

    I got a little impatient, and went ahead and flashed my phone to T707 firmware. Almost everything is working, but If I want to go back to debranded TM717 firmware once things get sorted out, will that be much of a problem?

    Does T-Mobile's 3G still work with the T707 firmware? What all do you gain with the unbranded firmware? The only things I could really see gaining are the standard SE menu and possibly the TrackID application.

    Make sure you have T707 custom file loaded as well, or tethering will be blocked.

    I finished 1st mod, make sure you have to back up your address book, there's an option you can backup at advanced option.
    http://www.sendspace.com/file/8dqodq
    rename it to Customize.xml, you MUST factory reset the phone to remove the original settings
    mod:
    1. remove tethering restriction
    2. added internet2 and internet3 APNs
    3. can display G/E/3G/H/U icons
    4. enable GSM/3G menu (if any)
    5. enable FOTA menu

    make sure you save the original Customize file just in case.

    Now the question is: can 3G stay intact?
    I think just load T707 tpa file when flashing the phone.

    OMG!!!!!
    I HAVE TO BUY TM717 TOMORROW!!!
    But how about GPS?
    Because original T707 doesn't have GPS, you may not find GPS menu...

    You are right, no GPS in the service test menu. (But Google maps 3.0 is pre-installed). I'm not worried, I use my iPhone for GPS anyway.
