    Just got my ATT w580i, right away, i flash it.. and guess wat it stopped half way thru flashing... i was wow.. great I bricked it... unable to turn on or anything. USB show up unknown device, I tried to specified the driver for it, no help... I was about to cry...
    then I took it to my vista machine..and wola it sees it ! So I go thru with the flash again, and whew,, it works !
    Pt I learned.
    1) If computer doesn't recongize it, take out battery and unplug usb , then put battery in and hold down c and plug in usb cable.

    Phone doesn't have to be on to do this, my phone was off, well can't even turn it on, but yea. good luck

    Excellent guide.. took 10 minutes to flash/de-brand my w580i after download/install of the RAR. Key thing to remember is to first get everything set up in the SETool 2 Lite software, then after you click the FLASH button, to hold down the "C" on the phone and plug in the USB cable.

    I followed your directions, the flashing process went very smoothly. However, my phone, while debranded, is not unlocked. How can I unlock it?

    Thanks for the helpful FAQ. Got everything working although a few adjustments were needed. I managed to get rid of the Rogers startup logo and change language so I think it was successful. However, when I check my phone using setool it still says Network LOCKED. I tried to use the Unlock button in setools but it still comes up as Network LOCKED. So is my phone just de-branded but still locked or is the "network locked" irrelevent?

    This guide does NOT allow you to UNLOCK your phone, if you are in need of doing so please go to the UNLOCKING section of the Sony Ericsson forums here on HOFO and discuss it there.

    Do you mean will your phone relock if you put a new FW on it?

    I cannot say 100% but I can say that 99.9% of the time it will work for sure, unless you do something stupid in the 5 minutes that it takes to flash the phone, other than that it shouldn't fail.
