Moved to Nokia Lumia 800 General

This is a device specific question. Not in the WP7 development section please.

Please refer to the read before posting sticky for guidelines.

Take it easy

Hi davec26, im great thanks, yourself? It has been a while lol, iv been an iPhone user for the past half a year, before that I had my last s60 device, the N8, no more s60 for me, so was waiting for nokias WP7 device, and now I love it, great device.

Not sure what will flash this, but im sure phoenix won't do it, its not like s60, im sure the WP7 gurus will find a way.

Fortunately Three didn't do anyof that, nokia blue is still present.

Another route instead of flashing is to be a developer. This is how I got rid of T-Mobile Branding on my Omnia 7 by flashing the Mango Beta. I assume they will release a Tango Beta in the same way to developers and you'll be able to flash that to your phone and have a generic rom.

Thanks for the info, I still have the "Blue" theme unless there's 2 blue colors on the generic Lumis 800 ROM?

Yeah there's blue and Nokia Blue.

AFAIK there's room for 1 custom colour. Nokia have used that space for Nokia Blue but if networks want their colour on the phone the only option they have is to replace Nokia Blue, default colours can't be replaced and they can't add another one.
