Davinci Unlock/SEUS Upgrade

Click to view updated thread with images

Posted by count0zero
I have a UK branded K700i and DSS-25 and would like to debrand/upgrade. These are my questions:

The Davinci software says unlock, is this just unlock to allow other networks or does it mean de-branding?

After an unlock (which hopefully means debrand) using Davinci would it then be possible to use the SE update service to upgrade the firmware for free?

Any advice on other services I can use and anyone who can sell me some credits would be welcome.

No, unlocking is different from decustomizing. However davinci offers both.

After the upgrade you will be unable to use SEUS unless you change the CDA to a generic one.

CDA is like a label that identifies your phone and some of its properties for example - Languages.

I am not sure if www.davinciteam.com can change the cda but i assume it can as this is quite basic.

Also, for you information: - the are to main sections in SEMC firm.

1. Main Firmware
2. File system

Davinci will use a full file system image to flash i assume. However SEUS uses SFA - which is part of the file system but only contains bug fixes and languages, ideal for upgrading quickly.

Problems occur when phone is unbranded/upgraded with server with a CDA that labels the phone with different languages that is actually in the phone. So when upgrading with SEUS - some weird things may happen - so CDA is very important.

I was under the impression that flashing with davinci already provides a CDA that is supported by SEUS?

Can you unlock using a DSS-20/25 station?
I thought you could only unlock using the t28 data cable!
