    I purchased a L950 of Ebay recently and should receive the unlock code for it in the next few days. Once unlocked, will it behave like a regular unbranded device with regard to OS/firmware updates etc. Also, will the o2 splash screen go once unlocked, if not, is there a way to get rid of it? Can I flash it with a standard ROM once unlocked or will the recovery tool always automatically install the o2 variant?

    Thanks in advance for any light you can shed on these queries.

    It will be unlocked, not unbranded. It will not behave like a regular unbranded device...at least this is how I understand it from other threads on this forum.

    Can it be flashed with a standard 950 ROM using the recovery tool?

    Check the thread where I detailed the procedure for changing the product code to get a new rom. The reason at the time was to get the latest firmware but it will also work for unbranding your previously carrier locked device.

    Next question then, I haven't read your article yet, but I will do in a bit (thanks by the way), can I use the procedure to bypass the lock? i.e. can I change the product code and flash it with a different ROM and disable the carrier lock in doing so?

    Never mind, as soon as I started reading your article, my question was answered :)
