I've just received a Note 3 I bought online as sim free unlocked, when its arrived I noticed it has an O2 splash screen

Is there anyway to remove this and put a stock rom on?

ODIN. Just grab the unbranded firmware from the same country (or region) off Sammobile and flash it over the Branded one. If you stick with the official firmware this won't trigger KNOX.

Many thanks, will this effectively turn my handset into a BTU? (presuming that's the firmware I flash)

Yes, of course.

First, you should know what CSC you are now. Use Phone INFO ★Samsung★ to get this info.

If you wipe the phone fully afterwards (through recovery), then yes. Otherwise the CSC stays O2.

You are aware we have rules against self-promotion?

Just dial *#1234#. No need for 3rd party apps.

It shouldn't. The official firmware won't trip KNOX.

Are you aware that, on some Samsung models (especially on branded phone, e.g Verizon, Sprint...), you cannot dial the *# code?

Take it easy guy.

And since he clearly mentioned it was an O2 phone, which isn't from the US(which is the only country selling branded phones, the EU for one forbid it by law.), in his first post, linking to your own app can be considered self promotion.

(I do, however, commend you for making that app for the people who can't use the dialer codes.)

Not a guy.
