Default Remove Branding

Hi I bought a Xperia Arc S yesterday.

The provider is "Orange" (Switzerland).

I now want to remove the branding from the software.

What is the best way to do. I just want to remove this branding.

Thanks & Regards

Why prefix thread titles with a [Q] but not post in Q&A


Do XDA a favour and type your "how to -insert mod here" into Google before starting new threads.

Unlocking BL has nothing to do with debranding, as far as I know...

Sorry for digging out this topic...

Just to clarify: I'll debrand an Arc S from Vodafone Germany. Just flashing with a generic firmware will do the job? After that I can root/flash/supercharge it like mine?
