1.6 Method

Debrand to Nordic Combined (B) firmware, quick and easy.
This will only work for Rooted X10i, Android 1.6
NOT FOR X10a, SO-01 or Mini (Pro)

You need to have Root Explorer installed
Edit you current system/default.prop file with Root Explorer.

Go in your system folder, press the Mount R/W button in the top right corner.
Long press the default.prop file > Open in Text Editor

Replace the numbers (XXXX-XXXX) in these 2 lines:

With the Nordic Combined (B) numbers which is:

X10i CUST-NBC GENERIC 1234-8465
Save & Exit.

Clear out your db folder in either PC Companion or SEUS, which ever one you use.
Press your Windows Key+R or type "run" in your start menu.
Then insert the path to what ever program you use and press enter.
Then delete the folder named with numbers in it.

SEUS db folder can be found here:
%programfiles%\Sony Ericsson\Update Service\db\
PC Companion db folder can be found here:
%programdata%\Sony Ericsson\Update Engine\db\
Reboot your phone and use SEUS to re-install your phone to 2.1.
Voila, you should now be on 2.1

2.1 Root Explorer Method only for Rooted Devices

Follow the steps as in 1.6 method.
And replace the numbers in the /system/build.prop file in the lines as 2.1 ADB Method descibes.

2.1 ADB Method only for Rooted Devices

Download Android SDK from HERE

Extract to your C:\

Remember to turn on USB Debugging (Go to your Settings>Applications>Development>Check USB Debugging).

Unmount your SD-Card from your computer (Pull down the notification bar on your phone and press the "Turn off USB Storage" and press "Turn Off")

Start cmd.exe, and go to your "C:\android-sdk-windows\tools" folder.
adb shell
then type:
Remember to keep your screen unlocked. Superuser App will ask for rights here. Allow it to have Super User rights when the pop up comes.
then type:
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
then type:
busybox cp /system/build.prop /sdcard/build.prop
Keep the adb shell running.

Remount your SD Card on your computer (Pull down the notification bar on your phone, and press "USB Connected" and press the "Mount" button")

Open the build.prop file on your computer using Notepad++

And replace the XXXX-XXXX with the ones desired (complete CDA list can be found below. Remember to only use X10i CDA for X10i models and vice versa, or else SEUS or PC Companion won't recognize your device)


Save the file and close down Notepad++

Now unmount the SD Card from the computer by bringing the Notification bar down on you phone and pressing the "Turn off USB Storage" and press "Turn Off"

Go back to the adb shell console and write.
busybox cp /sdcard/build.prop /system/build.prop
then type:
Your phone should now reboot. When complete clear out your "db" folder (described longer up) and run SEUS or PC Companion to change region, rebrand or debrand to the region you chose.

Added complete CDA list below, for all X10i and X10a.
First set of CDA applies to both Luster White and Sensuous Black.
The 2nd and 3rd sets codes is SI numbers for Luster White or Sensuous Black (The numbers behind the battery).
Remember to stay within your Model type, if it's a X10a then use CDA codes for X10a and vice versa.

The ones marked in RED is Generic Unbranded firmwares.

Are you sure you didn't edit the default.prop file in the root folder and not the system folder?

I've jumped to 3 different region builds in the past 2 days by doing this.
