REBRANDING FIRMWARE [Х10 ONLY]. SWITCH BETWEEN OPERATORS BRANDS OR GENERIC AND VICE VERSA


  • Start Flashtool
  • Connect the device and wait till it's recognized
  • Go to Advanced/Rebrand




  • New window will popup
  • In "Type" field choose if you want a Generic or Operators firmware
  • In "Brand ID" field choose the region/operator which you'd like to rebrand to.
  • Confirm and wait a little bit




  • Connect your phone to SEUS or PC Companion and repair or re-install the firmware[/*]
  • That way the program will download the firmware which you choose in Flashtool and will flash it on your phone
  • Good luck!

Thats a file that I've build as described on step 2 3rd post. From .sin files. And give that name cause I've copy kernel.sin file to 024 build.
That way when i flash it has MT already in

Isn't it possible to flash only MT update? Flashing only kernel.sin will not work? Do I have to flash my firmware also?

Did you even read 2nd post, do you? LOL

If you already have 2.1 just install kernel.ftf
You can dw from 1st post.
Once again you didn't read. LOL

When you create the ftf file it seems to make no difference if the laoder.sin is included. The flash tool gets its own laoder sin. I've tried both include and not. Both ftf file flashed OK.
Why is loader.sin included in build of ftf?

Flashtool problem
I have problems with flashtool trying to flash the X10_1.0_Bin4ry_Dualtouch.ftf. When I try to flash I get the following error message in Flashtool:

-------------------------------------------
It is obviously something wrong. I have tried to download the ftf file again, but with the same result.

-------------------------
I realize I should have posted this question to the Q&A. I didn't manage to move my post. Sorry for this!
