I am wanting to know which rom to use to Unbrand to cyan UK GB retail closest I can find in all tools have ia a gb v2 or v3 in, im thinking this is virgin not retail?
Ok anttaz I have just check and as of 22:58 7-feb-2012 there is a V3 variant for Matt Cyan.
There were loads of compaints on the nokia forum when 11501 went live from sim-free Cyan owners because they didnt have an update. Now I understand why. Nokia probably forgot to do the differing firmware file (why is it different, i dont know....) then tried to cop out saying it was a phased rollout.
Navifirm certainly will show all available firmware for Nokia devices. Hook up your device and check its current version - you should also be able to read the hardware code as well (eg lumia is RM-801, yours will be different). When it comes to actually performing the flash, I can't say whether this will work or not but its a good place to start. And remember google is your friend
I just want to say thank you and I ♥ you. (♥ = love)
My Lumia 800 was refusing to update, there is an issue with the cyan ones. I was about to take it back which meant 14 days without a Windows Phone which you may guess is the same as having someone poking an iPhone in your eye. Anyway it worked perfectly and and now I'm just syncing the files up and then I just need to put my contacts back on. They're all on the cloud so simple really. Thanks again, and much love.
I updated my Nokia Lumia 800 this morning after a message flashed up on my screen.
I have an Orange device that was re-flashed with 11500 unbranded variant.
After the update, I still have an unbranded variant, currently running:
Carrier: CV UK SW variant ID222 v.02 (this would say orange if it was the orange firmware)
So, a full update (firmware as well as OS) has not reset the variant back ... GOOD!
