Need some help finding flash files to debrand some older w810i and w580i to make them more "useful". ie remove annoying Rogers branding and bloat-ware, and allowing the use of MP3 ringtunes. I've already unlocked both using remote codes.
From my research, I'm guessing I can jump between CID and Firmware versions as long as I keep them the same between the Main and FS files used??? How does one tell if a firmware is older or newer, are they numerically/alphabetically higher?
I've already used XS++ 3.1 to do a GDFS backup. Here is the info on the phones:

For Sony Ericssons, flashing is in three sections: Main, FS, and custpack. Firmware versions aren't a really big issue, but given the firmwares you have, that shouldn't be a concern.
Custpack: Set phone model to w810, set CDA to the same as the FS (AMERICA_2).
This setup will debrand it to an American version.
extract the custpack in the xs++ folder, rename the folder as "own_custpack". On XS++, set phone model to own_custpack.
This setup will debrand it to a European version with Scandinavian languages.
