    Many thanks for this guide. Great!
    What is the difference between "RM-824_lta_lta1_237" and "RM-824_lta_lta1_223"? I have L820 AT&T (RM-824) and I need to change it to the fw "059R8N0 RM-824 VAR AMERICA LTA1 CO&EC CV". What is the best way to reflash?

    Applying the rom I'd suggest Windows phone image designer. To flash the original rom needed for a clean install and the very very start step (phone prep) I used Windows Phone recovery tool. Two brilliant pc programs.

    Thanks for reply. My question is, what is the difference in the result after de-branding process with "PhoneManufacturerModelName >> RM-824_lta_lta1_223" and "***lta1_237" as described above.

    Thank you for such guide.
    Is any information about flashing RM-825 firmware to RM-824 att phone?
    I've checked the ROM-file of the 059M0F3 RM-824 NDT AMERICA US ATT and compaired it to the 059R2L2 RM-825 VAR EU UA CV firmware.

    Both contain:

    PhoneHardwareRevision 1.0.0.0
    [PhoneSOCVersion] 8960


    I'd like to try change the registry according to the new FW:

    PhoneMobileOperatorName >> 000-UA
    PhoneManufacturerModelName >> RM-825_eu_ukraine_286

    Does anybody know if this is completely impossible and I'll got a brick? Or there is a chance to flash the listed above FW.
    Thanks in advance.

    The first one would give you the unbranded firmware for Mexico, the second one for Columbia and Ecuador

    It might not work, it won't brick your phone but error out saying cannot open update. You'll have to hard reset in that case. Why not unbrand to one of the above listed firmware instead?

    Thank you for reply. I'm not sure the RM-824_lta_lta1 FW contains ukrainian interface language. Or even ukr spelling dictionary.

    The main thing I'm worried about the new ukr firmware is difference between the RM-824 and RM-825 models. In case I'll be able to get the update after the registry editing but the won't run after (because of the RM-824 and RM-825 difference). Is there any incompatibility between the RM-824 hardware and RM-825 firmware

    Thanks

    It might not contain the specific language but you can always download it can't you?

    Actually I'm not sure. The original ATT firmware doesn't allow to download and install ukr interface language. It allows set the ukr regional settings and add the ukr keyboard only but not interface.

    And why would you do that? It might have already damaged the LTE radio for good

    I live in Europe and have ATT phone the frequencies are different my operator uses 800/1800MHZ and on android phones there is possibility to unlock bands on USA models (on QUALCOMM devices such as nexus 5 etc.) and I thought that it was possible on lumias but no LTE

    I've done. Probably with no success. yet.
    I successfully did almost all the steps. On the Part 2 - Registry Edits: Step 3 "Install Updates" my phone freeze on the cog wheel screen (about 95%). I did the reset, not sure what one (Volume Down & Power). Then I got blue screen "If you'd would like to know more, you can search online later". Then after a number of tries I got the working phone OS 8.10.14234.375.

    The Carrier still AT&T. No ukr display language. A couple of brand ATT applications (much less than before).
    No new software update (no Preview for dewelopers installed).

    Extras+info >> Lumia Cyan.
    (More info)
    Manufacturer Name >> RM-824_nam_att_101
    Mobile Operator >> ATT-US

    Looks I have no luck this time.
    Am I able to downgrade the OS to try one more time?

    Thanks,

    That's Denim actually, something AT&T hasn't released yet. Not sure why your extras+info still shows AT&T? Did you change it back to the default AT&T values after checking for updates?

    No, I didn't. I've followed the listed above guide only.

    Now, I've downgraded the phone using Nokia Care Suite 5.0 to FW 3051.40000.1347.1001 (FW files downloaded separately). Then tried ones more. Now all is okay. I've got unbranded phone using followed registry keys:
    PhoneMobileOperatorName >> 000-UA
    PhoneManufacturerModelName >> RM-825_eu_ukraine_286

    The phone has OS 8.10.14234.375 and Lumia Denim extras+info

    Thank you for help.

    Hi,

    This is my first post in this forum... first of all, I wanted to thank every single person (developers as well as regular every day forum users and support) for your dedication and unselfish assistance you're providing in these forums. Thank you!

    I have one question... I purchased Lumia 635 for my wife (GoPhone, pre-paid) here in Canada, and I also got unlock code printed on the box. Unlocked it in less than few minutes, and phone was ready to use with Fido and SpeakOut 7-eleven SIM cards. Then I've decided to un-brand it, remove that AT&T logo at boot time, and all the junk they usually instal. I followed this tutorial by pankaj981, called "[Guide] De-branding AT&T Nokia Lumia 635/**820**" to un-brand it.
    Not a single problem, everything went super smooth. After that, I've decided to do similar thing to get 8.1 Update 2, so I followed his other tutorial called: "[Guide] Installing WP 8.1 Update 2 on Lumia Devices**"

    Again, after couple of minutes after I finished it, phone started downloading big update (update 2), and finally everything was perfect at the end. Phone is completely updated, seems quite snappier than with AT&T junk on it, so all is good. What is my question?

    Well... I have to admit it was kind of confusing for me reading about un-branding / installing another ROM (possibly non-branded), because even right now, without me installing any new ROM, just after the un-branding process and seeing that her phone has Windows 8.1 Update 2 installed, to me it looks like there is no traces of AT&T inside. Boot logo is gone, all the apps she used to have from AT&T are gone, so all actually looks rather great :)

    My question is... do I still have to install some other ROM, and if the answer is yes, which one would work with this phone and where can I get it? It is RM-975, Product Code: 059V714

    Also, in case I have to install new ROM, what is the preferred method? Nokia Care Suite or something else?

    Thank you a million in advance!

    No it does not. The option vanishes the moment the SIM is installed.

    It won't work for the AT&T Lumia 1520. My guess is it only works on similar variants (RM-938 vs RM-940)

    To install a new ROM (outside of the factory default) you'll either have to use Nokia Product Support Tool for Store which is part of the Nokia Care Suite or you can use MS Image Designer Tool, this is slightly more advanced and may work better for newer models. I don't remember the product code for the unbranded Lumia 635 US CV but that's the ROM variant you need to flash.

    OK, thank you. I've seen some videos people using MS Image Designer, and I am quite confident I can deal with that one.

    My only remaining question is... now when phone is debranded and updated to Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2, is there really any reason to install another ROM? What would be the gains of installing other ROM? All I actually want is my wife's Lumia 635 to have something as close to the stock, plain ROM as possible. I don't need any extra bells and whistles, just simple clean ROM.

    Actually there is no North American Lumia 640 debranded ROM so I am trying to change from an AT&T to a T-Mobile device. I already got the SIM unlock code and unlocked the phone.
    I was using "RM-1073_1001" and "TMO-US". I tried to flash using 059X0P7 ROM and got an error. I have a T-Mobile Lumia 640 so I know the codes are correct. Again, I am trying to change my unlocked AT&T Lumia 640 to a T-Mobile Lumia 640 this way I can use it on either carrier.
    I had success changing an AT&T Lumia 635 to a T-Mobile lumia 635 with wifi calling and everything.
