    I flashed 059S7G4 ( UNBRANDED + 4G OPTION ). My phone came with the one that had no 4G option.

    I am using Straight Talk (AT&T MVNO) in the USA. According to speedtest.net, I get the same speeds with the 4G ROM installed and 4G enabled as I did with the stock ROM that only went up to 3G. I know I don't get LTE on Straight Talk. I am fine with that. Just saying, for anyone hoping for a speed boost by flashing one of the 4G ROMS on Straight Talk in the USA, you're not gonna get one. I maxes out on "H+" either way.

    I also get the Data Package Error at the bottom of the Care Suite flashing a couple of times. Tried re-scanning but the same.

    I have tried installing both the EE and Unbranded Rom.
    Flash with Nokia Care Suite 5.0 2013.20.5.3,support profile RM-892

    That's not very surprising considering the European version doesn't have the right radios for US LTE.

    Hi there !

    Thanks for this thread.

    Is it possible to flash a RM-893 rom (T-Mobile US) to a RM-892 device (T-Mobile Germany) ? What will happen with the LTE connectivity ?

    The carrier exclusives are bull****. The US-Rom has wifi-calling, the German-Rom has Visual Voice Mail.

    Thanks in advance.

    Flashing 920 software on to a 925 is seriously dodgy. You run the risk of bricking your phone. Unless you have the right equipment you won't be able to bring it back to life.

    I too would like to know if NCS will let Nokia Lumia 925 from T-Mobile USA be flashed with Euro unbranded firmware. Also what will happen with T-Mobile's LTE after flashing euro firmware. I have flashed Nokia Lumia phones form T-Mobile/Euro with different RM-types before and had no problems, but this time it is LTE which has different bands and also the firmware I wanted to flash is from Russian variant which probably doesn't support. Any one tried to flash the above phone? Thanks

    Hi Guys,

    You'll have to excuse me as I'm a complete newbie so will probably ask some very basic dumb *** questions!

    I've recently purchased a Lumia 925 locked to O2. Like others on this thread hate the bloatware and other crap so want to re-flash my phone to de-brand it, ideally making if 4G ready. I realize I'll need to get the phone unlocked at some point either by paying silly money or waiting for someone to find a way to do it for free

    For reference I'm using a Windows XP operating system

    I followed the instructions on this feed and a few others and downloaded the Nokia care suit (version 2013.8.30) swapped the config file and downloaded the 059S7G4 firmware. I've re-named the file as instructed, all good so far. However, when i connect my phone NCS identifies my phone as the RM 892 and tells me it's not supported.

    I'm probably missing a step. So would appreciate it if someone could give me a idiots step by step connection and flashing guide. i.e. what function of the NCS I should use, what options to check / un-check, when to connect the phone, what buttons to press etc. etc.

    I'd also like to know if there's a way to back up my current firmware just in case anything goes horribly wrong!

    I did try to download the latest version of NCS but were unable to download the firmware so uninstalled it and loaded the older version. I do have access to a windows 7 laptop if that would make life any easier.

    Thanks in advance for any help and support you guys can provide. If I've missed any required info, just shout!

    Hi Normally if you want to reflash other firmware on your phone, make sure that NCS is not automatically detecting your device, it should look like as if it is dead. Uncheck box "Automatic Product Selection" Also above it, select "No connection", then go to "File" and open product yourself.

    All you need to do is to know product code for your phone, then you can flash the firmware back to the original variant. NCS has this option, under tools( I believe), "download data package" or something similar. After that you will enter your phone's product code and it will download that firmware. I just don't have NCS with me now....to tell you exactly.

    I had a crack at this the other night with my recently acquired 925 that is Three branded. I installed the Nokia Care Suite listed in one of the threads with the config file, downloaded an unbranded firmware and followed all instructions.

    I couldn't for the life of me get the flashing process to initiate. I tried all the button press combos I could find listed on the web as well as the prompt that NCS gives you (which would appear just to be a soft reset). Simply would not start the flashing process.

    Any tips? Wouldn't mind I branding from 3, if for no other reason than to get rid of the splash screen. If not, no bother.

    1. Switch your device off
    2. Keep VOLUME DOWN + POWER button until device vibrates
    3. When device vibrates, or immediatelly after, press and KEEP VOLUME UP button until Nokia logo is displayed.
    4. You should enter recovery mode (specific icon on black screen should appear)
    5. Flashing should work now.

    When switching to pressing volume up am I still pressing the power button? When letting go of the power button and just pressing the volume up after the vibrate, I did see an icon that looked like a lightning bolt with something else a couple of times, is that it? If so, the flashing still didn't start.

    Could you link to a version of care suite that thus definitely works for and let me know if there are any user config files that need to be changed?

    Cheers.
