I disallow anyone to copy/modify the tutorial without my written permission. I also disallow uploading the Customize files onto another server.

Flashing your X10i to X10a and vice versa will result in SEUS not able to update your phone.

1. Download files:
-SE PC Companion: http://www.sonyericsson.com/c[....]_PC_Companion_2.00.115_Web.exe
Choose one of the following:
- X10a Generic America BR (R1FB001) NEW! - http://www.4shared.com/file/o[....]Customized_BR_Released_12.html
- X10a Generic America AR (R1FA014): http://www.4shared.com/file/X[....]Customized_AR_Released_12.html
- X10i Generic UK (R1FA016): http://www.4shared.com/file/F[....]mized_UK_Released_1227-46.html
-X10i Generic NCB (R1FA016): http://www.4shared.com/file/-[....]Customized_NCB_Released_1.html (Thanks Mizzle!)
- X10i Generic Honk Kong (R1FA014): http://www.4shared.com/file/w[....]Customized_HK_Released_12.html
2. Install PC Companion on your PC
3. Connect your phone when PC Companion asks
4. Check for updates - on this screen you will get the REPAIR option
5. Select repair - and let PC Companion guide you through it.
6. Go to the following directory (folder may be hidden)
For Windows Vista/7 C:/ProgramData/Sony Ericsson/SEMC OMSI Module/db/13740270/blob_fs) (Yes, ProgramData; not Program Files!)
For XP C:/Documents and Settings/All Users/Application Data/Sony Ericsson/SEMC OMSI Module/db/13740270/blob_fs
7. Sort the files by date in descending order
8. Look at the screenshot: http://img217.imageshack.us/img217/5554/x10deb.jpg
9. Rename file 1 from the archive to the first file at the top (they should both be similar size (~110mb)
10. Rename file 2 from the archive to the second file at the top (they should both be similar size (~16mb)
11. Now copy both files from the archive into C:/ProgramData/Sony Ericsson/SEMC OMSI Module/db/13740270/blob_fs. If asked to overwrite, then do so.
12. Run PC Companion again. Go through steps 4 and 5.
13. After a successful update the phone will be unbranded.
(If you used Generic NCB files it is recommended to perform steps 4 and 5 once more. This will update the firmware to the newest, R1FB001, firmware.)

If you appreciate my work, and want me to continue the development please kindly donate. Any amount is appreciated.

Other regions (because there are 23 all together) will be uploaded later as my 40kb/s upload is really limiting me .

As I said in the other thread, does this change the CDA, or just fool it into matching the CDA with World Generic and updating?

I replied to you. I said that it does change CDA and SEUS will flash generic firmware when future updates come.

Sorry, can't see that.. might have been a different Andy.

Sweet news excellent work! Does this mean all settings are lost by reflashing or because it's just the baseband will this be ok?
