    did you backup to mem card and restore afterwards? i've heard reports of this causing problems when unbranding - the phone just says something like "return to operator" once you've restored your backup..

    look at post #572

    this isn't the work of the poster, and it has been copied across the internet widely.

    I've successfully flashed my N73 which was a vodafone live! handset, and it appears all OK, MMS, WAP and video calling all working fine. VF Live! start page has been removed from the phone though, so have all the VF certificates - but i didnt use any of the mobile tv rubbish anyway. I could always browse to the vf live! page anyway and add it as a bookmark if i need to use it for any reason.
