Default z1 debranding

hello everyone,

i bought a Z1 C6903 was locked on French carrier SFR. I did pay for an unlock code, and now it's permanently unlocked.
i hate that SFR boot screen logo also these apps bundles came installed in it. so I want to debrand it with a stock/generic firmware.

before flashing, i need to make sure this won't damage IMEI and BASEBAND and render the phone's radio unusable.

i.e: Unknown Baseband or Missing IMEI

Please check the screenshots below, it has all the phone's info, including firmware version, baseband # and other crap from SFR carrier.

i'd appreciate any suggestion or help in what i should do in this case!

BTW: Bootloader unlock allowed: No (is it possible to make it Yes somehow?)

thank you very much.

No, no way.

To debrand your phone use latest flashtool and flash a FTF from Mega Collection for your Model C6903, there is no any issues as they are Stock and made for your phone. The R1B or something else is just a customization, not even noticeable.

Flash Generic/International and you are Fine.
IF I HELPED DO NOT SAY THANKS, CLICK IT.

Can you tell me what is the website by MP please ?

So, with the generic firmware, no more SFR apps and the bootscreen is no longer the one provided by SFR ?
