dcx_badassdcx_badass

*GUIDE WILL RETURN SOON!



*THIS WILL WIPE YOUR PHONE*

New links/pictures and instructions added!

Ok so alot of people benefited from the recent W810 deal.

The next three posts will focus on:
1) Unlocking and debranding the Cid 49
2) Debranding the Cid 50
3) Patches and extra info

I've done is this into one place, and spent some time gathering the files and putting them into one pack, including putting the own_custpack in the right place. I've also rewrote the guide and redone all the pictures.

Regarding the virus warnings these are false postives triggered by how setools is packaged, please see this thread for info:
http://www.topsony.com/forum/se-tool-2-lite-f46/solved-setool2lite-v1-11-trojan-horse-t15147.html

But Please note you download files at your own risk, and neither me or hotukdeals are responsible for any damaged caused to your phone or computer.

    CID 49 Guide and Files

    First off all here is the pack I made with all the files in:
    http://rapidshare.com/files/94403368/Cid_49.zip

    It contains:
    USBFlashDriver
    XS++ (Generic UK Custpack already applied)
    setool2lite
    W810_R4EA031_FS_EUROPE_2_RED49
    W810_R4EA031_MAIN_GENERIC_HN_RED49

    Instructions.txt (ignore the first line where it mentions cid50 it was a type and should say cid49)
    Remove_SIM_lock_R4EA031.VKP - this is the unlock patch you use in XS++ near the end of the guide.

    ¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬

    [CENTER][SIZE="4"]W810i CID-49 unlocking/ debranding guide.[/SIZE][/CENTER]

    [SIZE="3"][CENTER]YOU DO THE FOLLOWING AT YOUR OWN RISK:[/CENTER]

    THIS ONLY WORKS ON CID-49 PHONES, MOST WHITE AND SOME BLACK PHONES ARE CID-50[/SIZE]

    [SIZE="2"]
    How to tell what CID your phone is without connecting it to the PC:

    Turn the phone on, once you have your wallpaper, with your network name and time date etc.. Press the following keys: > * < < * < * and you will get a service menu come up. Select Service Info and then select Configuation. Press down until you get to the bottom and if you see "C: 49" a line underneath GSM1800 GSM1900 you have a CID-49 phone.
    Bewarned that flashing a phone will delete any contacts, numbers etc on the phone. So it's best to do it as soon as you receive it.

    DO NOT UNPLUG YOUR PHONE UNTIL THE SOFTWARE TELLS YOU TO, AND MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A FULLY CHARGED BATTERY BEFORE STARTING, AS

    IT MY TAKE SEVERAL ATTEMPTS. IT'S VITAL YOU BACKUP YOUR GDFS AS DETAILED IN THIS GUIDE.

    Download this pack:
    http://rapidshare.com/files/94403368/Cid_49.zip

    This Custpack is the original Sony Ericsson Generic UK version. Also has the following themes and any associated flash menus: Active Desktop, Avenue, Backstreet, Breakbeat, Club Pulse, Equalizer, Female Line, Fone, Lava Desktop, Lounge, pruebaEQ, RNB, Soundwave, Techno. These are Sonyericisson themes are taken from earlier phones, the w710i/ w800i.
    Turn your phone off, remove the battery and put it back in. plug the usb lead into the into the PC but not the Phone yet,

    Press and hold down the C button while inserting the USB lead into the phone. After a few seconds Windows should detect a USB flash device you can then release the C button after a few seconds, When windows prompts you for the drivers, use the USB

    Flash Drivers downloaded. Unplug/ turn off the phone.

    Then run SeTool2 lite. Select W810i as the phone type, click the identify button.

    http://img238.imageshack.us/img238/8680/95123678ka2.jpg

    Make sure the CID is 49 (most black w810's are). Click the [COLOR="Red"]"Read GDFS" [/COLOR]button, this will backup your GDFS (very important!). Exit SE2toolslite. The GDFS file on your phone is unique to your phone, it's vital you back it up and put into a safe place. It will be saved in the directory where setool2lite is located as gdfs_xxxxxxxxxxxx.bin, with xxxxxxxxxxx being your phone's IMEI number. Goto the directory where SETools is located and make sure the backup of the GDFS is present, you may need need this if something goes wrong. DO NOT PROCEDE ANY FUTHER UNLESS YOU

    HAVE A BACKUP OF YOUR GDFS.

    [COLOR="Red"]Do not [/COLOR]click on the Write GDFS button, FLASH button, or the Unlock/Repair button as these could break your phone

    Make sure the phone is off. Run PhoneXS++ press the connect button. Then hold down C and insert the cable into the phone.

    Select Flash in the configuration frame at bottom, check the "Flash Main Firmware", "Flash File System" and "Customize File System" checkboxes.

    http://img136.imageshack.us/img136/3994/58050332zj0.jpg

    Select W810_R4EA031_MAIN_GENERIC_HN_RED49.mbn as the main, W810_R4EA031_FS_EUROPE_2_RED49.fbn as the file system. Select Own_custpack in as the phone model. Ticking "don't upload SE Wap links" means that you don' t get the connect to Sony Ericsson options everywhre, such as inder the pictures section, the themes section, the sounds section, I recommend this. Now click the flash button.

    Don't unplug the phone until you get the following screen:

    http://img338.imageshack.us/img338/5111/75303326rq8.jpg

    When that is done, run SE2Tools lite again. Change the phone type to W810i, click identify to make sure it's all ok.

    http://img222.imageshack.us/img222/2955/13131028qa5.jpg

    The bits in red are the key bits to note. Notice the differences from the first picture in the thread(pic coming soon).

    Then click on the ... button after Misc files and select Remove_SIM_lock_W810_R4EA031.vkp that is the patches archive you downloaded.

    http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/2663/38968842xh8.jpg

    Click on 'Write Script', be very careful about which button you click on, if you click on 'Write GDFS' instead of 'Write Script', your phone will be dead. Then with your phone turned off hold down C and plug the cable in. After around a minute you should see:
    DETACH CABLE FROM PHONE.
    REMOVE BATTERY FROM PHONE, THEN INSERT IT BACK
    THEN PRESS "READY"

    Once you've done that, it will tell you to hold down C and plug the phone back in(with it still off),
    After about another minute you will get a pop up saying:
    "No will apply the patch, yes will remove it."
    You want to choose no.
    Once is done the bar near the bottom left will say ready. And the all the buttons will be clickable again. After that you can then unplug your phone and try it with a different sim!

    Your phone should now be unlocked and debranded.
    [/SIZE]

    If you get a Configuration Error when the phone starts up then you forgot to tick the own_custpack in XS++, go back and do that step again(no need to re choose the the FS or Main and you don't need to reunlock it again either.

    To get it unlocked you are best going to a market stall or asking on http://forums.se-nse.net for a good site to use. Reflashing the phone will relock it in most cases, so make sure it is debranded before you pay to unlock it!

    Download this pack:
    http://rapidshare.com/files/94391608/Cid_50.zip

    Turn your phone off, remove the battery and put it back in.

    Click the [COLOR="Red"]"Read GDFS"[/COLOR] button, this will backup your GDFS (very important!). Then with your phone turned off, hold down C and insert the cable
    The GDFS file on your phone is unique to your phone, it's vital you back it up and put in a safe place, I place mine on the memory card for each phone. It will be saved in the directory where setool2lite is located as gdfs_xxxxxxxxxxxx.bin, with xxxxxxxxxxx being your phone's IMEI number. Goto the directory where SETools is located and make sure the backup of the GDFS is present. If something bad happens (computer crash/ powercut while flashing etc), restoring the GDFS should bring your phone back to life. DO NOT PROCEDE ANY FUTHER UNLESS YOU HAVE A BACKUP OF YOUR GDFS.

    Click the Add button and select W810_R4EA031_MAIN_GENERIC_HN_RED50.mbn then click the Add button again and select W810_R4ED031_FS_EUROPE_2_RED50.fbn. Press the Flash button. Then with the phone off hold down C and insert the cable.

    http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/1152/64494585qo7.jpg

    You will know it is finished when the status box beneath the information window says Ready and the buttons are clickable again.

    Run XS++. Click on Connect. Then with the phone off hold down C and insert the cable.

    http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/4779/57362396tr6.jpg

    Then check only the customize file system. Select Own_custpack in as the phone model. Ticking "don't upload SE Wap links" means that you don' t get the connect to Sony Ericsson options everywhre, such as inder the pictures section, the themes section, the sounds section, I recommend this. Now click the flash button.

    http://img147.imageshack.us/img147/9099/34861854xj6.jpg

    Don't unplug the phone until you get the following screen:

    When that is done, run SE2Tools lite again. Change the phone type to W810i, click identify to make sure it's all ok.

    http://img222.imageshack.us/img222/2955/13131028qa5.jpg

    The bits in red are the key bits to note.

    Your Cid 50 W810 is now debranded!
    Some bits of the pictures say Cid 49 it does not matter, I took the pictures using my phone, for you it will simply say Cid 50 instead.

    YOU CANNOT PATCH CID-50 PHONES TO UNLOCK THEM. IF YOU TRY, SETOOLS WILL CHUCK UP A MISMATCH ERROR. SETOOLS CAN ONLY WRITE TO THE MAIN ON CID-50, IT CANNOT READ FROM IT AND SO CAN'T PATCH IT[/size]

    To get it unlocked you are best going to a market stall or asking on http://forums.se-nse.net for a good site to use. Reflashing the phone will relock it in most cases, so make sure it is debranded before you pay to unlock it!

    [SIZE="5"]Patches, themes, java applications[/SIZE]

    Ok first of all here is the download link(~27mb):
    Please read this whole post before using it
    https://rapidshare.com/files/158862846/SE_Pack.zip


    Now the zip file contains 4 folders:
    tested patches
    these are patches that I have personally used and have had no trouble with them
    untested patches
    I've not used them but they should be fine(note the patchers from the tested folder are also in here)
    Java apps
    Just a few Java applications, read the included read me
    Flash + Theme Files
    A big pack of flash themes.

    Please read this whole post before using it

    Patches
    Ok these patchers are applied in exactly the same way as the unlock patch, so follow the method in the Cid 49 post.
    You cannot use patches on a Cid 50 phone!
    ¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬


    The following can be done on Cid 49 or Cid 50

    Java Apps
    Just copy these to the other folder on your phone or memory card then on your phone select them and choose install. A read me file is included in the folder.

    Flash + Theme Files

    [SIZE="4"]Please do not use these until I have written the tutorial tomorrow[/SIZE]
    It involves browsing the system files and adding the files into specific places, so please wait until the tutorial tomorrow
    Please wait for the tutorial tomorrow before using the flash themes, as it is more complex than just copying the .thm and .swf files to your phone.

    Thank-you

    great timing - my phone has just arrived :-D
    Abvance
    You know about flash menus and stuff?
    Wonderlan
    In the guide it says click identify and make sure its cid 49 or 50... how am I supposed to be sure its cid 50? Does it set off a siren and says you have a XX. What am I looking for in setool2 lite to determine which one I have.

    The service menu just has check does not tell me as it just says C: ..
    Wonderlan
    As I stated, my service menu said C: .. ie two full stops no number.

    Also, I wanted to double check as the pic in the cid 50 instructions suggests its actually a cid 49 phone. I wanted to make sure it wasn't something else that I should be looking for in the program.

    Also, how long does it take to backup the GDFS? I left mine running for an hour with the progress bar going left to right and then restarting...

    About half a minute max! Did the IDENTIFY part work first?

    Read carefully through the guide. Make sure you have installed the USB FLASH DRIVERS correctly and don't forget the phone must be off and press and hold C whilst connecting it to the USB and computer.

    PS. I'm no master in it and I don't know why it shows as C... try doing identify and reading what it says then.
    Wonderlan
    Yes, the identify did seem to work. I installed the driver included in the package. Battery was a little low so I've had it on charge and going to give it another go now.

    Well, it seems I have to run the setool and then set it up how it needs to be and then click the button for what I want to do and then hold C and connect USB cable. I think its done. Not sure until I try a different sim in it.

    It worked a charm :-D Its unlocked. The no emergency calls doesn't quite work, 999 can still be dialled. Also there are still a few traces of Vodafone, eg under the games menu there is a link to Vodafone. Now I want to debrand my w800i.

    Hi I'm having a bit of bother unlocking and debranding my c 49 w810i.
    1st issue: I'm not sure if i installed the driver correctly. I extracted the file into a different folder, but when windows asked for which driver to use, I found it very hard to select the driver i needed. Is there a way of getting my computer to ask for the driver again?

    2nd: When applying the patch to unlock the phone do you hit 'flash' afterwards again (including the things that were already included the previous time when applying the custom pack? or is it 'write script' you press?

    3rdly. Is there a way of restoring my phone to its original position if i can't get this working. Cos right now it's saying config error, contact service provider.

    Please help!

    remove and reinsert the battery, then whilst holding down c connect the usb cable to the phone.

    It could also be that you do not have the USB flash drivers installed.

    You will know when to release c as the big white box with writing in it (left hand side of SETool) will tell you about your phone. IMEI, CID etc etc.

    You need to refresh the phone. Remove the battery, reinsert then try again.

    I installed the drivers, at least I think I did it right. Started up setool and identified, all the text came un in the window. Clicked to read GDFS and the green bar is just going across the screen and then back to nothing again before going back across. I left it running for about 10 mins.

    Does this mean I haven't installed the drivers correctly? How can you tell if they are installed?:oops:

    forgot to say I quit setool and unplugged my phone again and pressed c and pluggged it back in. It didn't ask me to install drivers or anything like that so I assume they are all installed ok

    I run the XS++ and disconnected and clicked identify and i still get the t mobile coming up. I don't know what I am doing wrong!

    I made sure everything was as in the screen shots, I carried on with the rest of the instructions and although it is showing t mobile on the identify thingy my phone now works perfectly with my O2 sim card and all the tmobile stuff has gone from it!
