Never quote whole OP. And op says everything.

yeah but... the OP of the other thread was not clear at all: not only ftf is not working for many, but it was not even stating the ftf was vodafone branded

The TFT not working was not his fault, Thats 1

2. he said multiple times that it is vodafone branded, also the name of the TFT was clear enough, don't come here bi***ing and moaning behind his back, he was trying to help us and he did nothing wrong

Nordic Combined firmware is firmware made for Sweden/Denmark/Norway. It works fine on all C6903 devices and is the cleanest customization there is. No branding, no bloatware.

Just different names, I think Customized NCB might be the correct name for the Z1, but whatever, all it means is that this is the ROM that people in the Nordics (Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland) get on their phones if they buy them from a non-carrier source. It is unbranded and contains no bloat.

I am neither moaning nor complaining, as a matter of fact I understood correctly and eventually decided not to download: I was just making a sort of summary of what happened on the other side , to justify my confirmation here.

geeeeezz calm down...

Yes and yes, no bloat from carriers, contains all Sony software, can be flashed on literally any C6903, just like I said in OP.

It might potentially not contain APNs for your carrier, as it only guarantees correct settings for the nordics, but your carrier should push those out to your phone automatically if not, and you can always enter them yourself.
