Vodafone Branded E65... Debranding

I have a Vodafone branded Nokia E65. It is unlocked, but it still has Vodafone branding all over the menus and start up screens and I hate branding.

I am no stranger to debranding with Nemesis Service Suite. I have debranded a Nokia E71 on 3 to generic, and a Nokia N82 on O2 to generic. But something is puzzling me about this E65.

The product code for Euro 1 Mocca/Silver E65 is 0536850. After checking the product code under my battery it is also 0536850. Normally operator branded handsets have their own unique product code and using NSS you change it to the generic UK or Euro 1 code and then use NSU to update the firmware with a generic one. Voila, no branding.

Therefore, if I ran NSU on my current Vodafone branded E65 and updated the firmware (which by the looks of it, no one has done as it still has 1xxxx firmware on it), to the latest it should remove the branding and leave me with a generic E65. Yes?

I can't understand why my E65 has a Euro 1 product code but still has Vodafone branding. I wonder if it would just be wiser to change the product code to a different colour version of the Euro 1 code, like the Red/Silver or the White/Silver, just to be sure that it would wipe the branding.

Any help would be appreciated

Regards

Simon

you sure you got the right code?
choose a code from a normal another e63,use NSS to change your code,then upgrade it

i have managed to debrand a china mobile branded E50 to a normal one,i think it's almost the same with e63

I managed to work it out in the end. Something a bit odd that I have never come across before when debranding.

It was a Vodafone UK handset. It had Vodafone in the menus and start up screens. The product code under the battery cover is the generic code, but when I hooked it up to NSS, the code actually on the phone was the vodafone code.

So I simply changed the product code in NSS to the generic one and then flashed it with the generic firmware via NSU.

It all worked perfectly.

I have never had a different product code printed to what it actually is, maybe this is a Vodafone thing.
