I've read that when we unlock the bootloader, SEUS can't recognice Arc, is it true? If it is, then if there's an upgrade than how do we upgrade if SEUS can't derect our device?

Its true. If there is a update you have to do it manually. You wat till someones get theirs hands to the update.zip so you can flash it

I flashed LT15i_3.0.D.2.79_DoCoMo_JP_system to my ARC HK version.
It OK for boot. But something wrong. That couldn't show menu, Icon and etc.
I think nothing fonts files. So I would like to wipe of user data my ARC.
Somebody knows how to wipe?

BR, Leo.

Hello, if you want to use the JP rom in your HK version, you need to flash to correct loader.sin via Flashtool.

However I don't recommend using the JPN firmware unless
1) you live in JP and a lot of the services it provides would require you to use its extensions and applications
2) you do not use wireless tethering. Currently the JPN firmware does not support any type of tethering. I've also tried Wireless Tether for Root user and it doesn't always work properly. (no wpa_supplicant)

i did change the file name first.

If you have space in your file name it won't work unless you have quotes around them.

Please rename the file to something like system_hk.img and then perform:
fastboot flash system_hk.img
