    Need info/files to debrand Rogers W810i and W580i

    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.

    For w810i:
    Main: W810_R4EA031_MAIN_GENERIC_HN_RED49
    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.

    Main: W580_R8BE001_MAIN_GENERIC_LA_RED52.mbn
    Filesystem: W580_R8BE001_FS_EUROPE_4_RED52
    custpack: w580_HB1-06_Gen_CDA102568_13_R8A_GENERIC_EUROPE_4
    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.
