[Q] Rebranding UK O2 Desire for Warranty Purposes
My phone has just developed the annoying loudspeaker issue which is apparently associated with short circuit of pins 4 and 5 of the micro usb port. It looks like I will have to try and return it under warranty.
My phone is S-OFF (Alpharev) and rooted (unrEVOked3), and fully debranded.
I'm guessing I will need to return it to (UK) O2 stock to have any hope of a warranty repair. I need a little advice.
Can anyone tell me what bootloader I should have (currently HBOOT 0.93)? Which would be the correct O2 ROM for an LCD Desire (a link would be greatly appreciated)? Will S-OFF become S-ON when I reflash with stock or do I need to do something else to reverse it?
Failing all this... how easy is it to replace the port? I have found the part micro usb port
I need and it's very cheap. I have to replace the earpiece speaker anyway (as it's buzzing) so I'm happy to dismantle the phone to do this. Is replacing the port a soldering task or is it just a push connector?
