Upgraded to an Atrix (from an HTC Hero) on Orange UK on 13th May, and can't see much UK specific information on the XDA forums, so thought I'd start this thread. Suggest it's a good place to put any info specific to the Orange UK Atrix.

First off:
Mine came locked to Orange, but there's no Orange branding on the phone case, and the box was standard Motorola box with no Orange branding.
From the About Phone menu:
System version: Version.4.1.31.MB860.Orange.en.GB
Model number: MB860
Firmware version: 2.2.2
Baseband version: N_01.86.00R
Motorola webtop version: OSHWT_U1_6.34.0
Kernel version: 2.6.32.9 xphk86@zch68Inxdroid45 #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Mar 30 15:19:50 CST 2011
Build number: OLYEM_U4_1.3.1

When I "check for updates" there's nothing available.

Update: The stock Orange UK .sbf file can be found here: http://modmymobile.com/forums/4085921-post44.html (thanks to @daywalker04 for this!)
Mirror: http://www.zshare.net/download/90896176a55b65ba/ (thanks to @nitrox1 for the mirror)
OLYEM_U4_1.3.1_SIGNED_USAOLYPORAGB_P025_A011_M001_ HWolympus_1g_1FF.sbf.gz
Compression MD5 - 268BD6129A59F1398873BF87EDE082C6
SBF MD5 - 9E4C775B15D1B7DC38D0CF94C35C7DF5
Please check your MD5, there is nothing worse than a bricked phone.

Update: The stock Orange UK Webdock APK files have been posted here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=799 - useful if you try the webtop without a dock hack and it doesn't work

Update: There's now a Modaco forum, which could be a good place to discuss general UK Atrix specific stuff: http://android.modaco.com/category/5...ix-modaco-com/

Update: Great guides to updating to root, unlock and flash GingerBread (2.3.4) on the UK Atrix here and here

Any other info I could provide that's useful? And anything any other Orange UK Atrix owners want to share?

If you are using grey/gingerblur this might be handy: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...02&postcount=5 works for me and means you dont need to enable roaming to get data working properly

Also here are the APN settings for orange:

Data:

Name: Orange UK 33
APN: orangeinternet
Username: user
Password: pass
MCC: 234
MNC: 33
APN type: default

MMS:

Name: Orange UK 33 MMS
APN: orangemms
MMSC: http://mms.orange.co.uk
MMS proxy: 192.168.224.010
MMS port: 8080
MCC: 234
MNC: 33
APN type: mms

I've just got the Mobile Hotspot working on my non-rooted device on Orange UK. Followed the instructions here: http://androidforums.com/motorola-at...ml#post2681704
Basically:
Go to Settings-> Wireless&Networks-> Mobile Networks-> Access point names-> Orange UK 33-> Change the APN type from "default" to "default,tether". Reboot a few times then try the Mobile Hotspot App. I had WiFi off and had to manually turn it on before it would work the first time.

Such a shame, again another wonderful company, customizing a perfectly fine system just so that its a 12month wait for updates again.... GRRRRRR. So tired of this now, If you wait for updates from Orange, you will have a new phone before they issue the update. I mean really? 4.1.31 on UK Orange.... 4.1.83 in the states, exactly how many updates are we behind????

Question
What's everyone's experiences with updates and the pseudo-roms? It looks possible to update to 1.8.3 following the instructions here. Has anyone tried this on an Orange phone in the UK? And if you don't update to 1.8.3, do the pseudo-roms work OK?

I have found the guide to installing French orange 2.1.1 (Skype working/1080p video) but I won't do it unless I have the Original Orange Rom first.... Any Ideas how I can get it or find it online? I just want the Orange 4.1.31.mb860.orange.en.GB SBF file.... I have the 4.2.1.1 all ready to go xD

You could make a dump of your own phone. Not tried this myself, but instructions are at http://www.addictivetips.com/mobile/...tition-images/

Can you post a link to the French Orange install guide?

Please post a link here if you do find/create your own!

I took the leap and am running gingerblur 3.5 on my Orange Atrix, seems to work fine after a couple of bootloops during installation.

Would be nice to have the option to flash back though...
