All I really want to do is take any Telus branding off the phone. I'm with Bell but there are more Telus versions for sale out there.
Looks like you have a Telus version. Is there a lot of branding during boot, etc?

Whether you can crossflash between the E973's I have no idea, but all you're really going to get for the most part is bell's crapware (I'm guessing) versus telus' lack of crapware.

It's not like it will let you run the phone on a Bell SIM.

There really was no branding to speak of on the Telus stock. If you look at the service manual though there are some small differences between the two, so whatever you do is obviously at your own risk :P

Open part1 in WinRAR and extract. It'll automatically take care of everything.

What the hell? 900MB LOL

May I ask why it's so big? Samsung stock ROMs are like a third of that, at most.

If you think about it. 900GB isn't too bad considering a Samsung galaxy s3 *.tar.md5 kies file is about 1.1GB
I'm pretty please that Bell's version of the E973. No branding on the phone whatsoever besides the bloatware.
the bootupanimation is just LG and shutdown ani is just LG as well..

edit. *.tot file is roughly 1.3GB after extracted from zip.

has some help

I am in the same boat as you and am trying to follow the instructions in the above link, but I am not sure about the step where it asks you to select a .dll file that says 'e970' as I'm not sure if that is AT&T specific.

Me as well.. I desperately need the stock firmware as I need to recover.

Does anyone have the ability to upload the Bell firmware to a different host?

Thanks
