    Hello, I am having a little trouble doing the product code change in my Lumia 635 ATT. I followed all the tutorial, debranded, flashed a new rom, got updates and everything went really fine (Thanks in advance). But in order to be able to use Windoes Recovery again, I was trying to do the procedure to chance the phone product code to match the rom I flashed and at time to try to execute the Thor2, the program windows shows up and inmediatly closes so I have no chance to perform the change code action. Does someone here knows how to fix this?

    Thanks a lot for this guide.

    Regards

    Note: My PC is in Windows 10

    You're doing this from the command line? (note the [brackets] mean you should substitute the correct values here)
    thor2 -mode uefiflash -ffufile "[name of firmware file previously downloaded].ffu" -productcodeupdate [059xxxx] -skip_flash

    Hi, you mean I just have to open a comand line without executing Thor2? I mean, in the pc go to the programs, open comand line, paste thor2 -mode uefiflash -ffufile "[name of firmware file previously downloaded].ffu" -productcodeupdate [059xxxx] -skip_flash
    and that is? I am not too experienced in Windows .

    Thanks a lot

    Yes, thor2 is not a gui program, you have to execute from the command line. Be sure to put in the correct values for your ffu file and the 059xxxx product code.

    Hello my friend. I did all the process as you describe in order to change the product code and get an error as follows:
    unknown argument -skipflash
    Argument (s) missing.
    THOR2_ERROR_INVALID_ARGUMENTS

    The command is misspelt in the first post. It is -skip_flash with an underscore between skip and flash.

    Does the ffu file exist at the specified location, and is it for your device?

    My phone is a Lumia 635 Gophone ATT RM-975_1005. As per the debranding tutorial, changed the operator and the manufacturer model name. After that; I flashed an unbranded rom country variant of a RM-975_1030 that was the only one I was able to find.
    The rom is already flashed to the phone and working properly. I do not know the location of the rom in the phone more than the route you gave to input in the comand line.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes I did. In a folder Ive created to store that file beside other files in one of my drives in my PC. After I downloaded the file, flashed the phone using Windows Phone Image designer

    Then you need to specify the full path to that file in the thor2 command.

    Thanks, Ok. Please as per the tutorial, I was usuing this:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Care Suite\Windows Device Recovery Tool
    thor2 -mode uefiflash -ffufile "RM975_02040.00021.15053.36002_RETAIL_prod_signed_1030_01ED99_000-22_MV.ffu" -productcodeupdate 059W1Z6
    -skip_flash
    The path to where the .ffu file is, is as:
    D:\Mega\Lumia 635 flash
    Do I have to move the .ffu file where Thor2 is in my drive C? or where in the comand line do I have to insert the file path beside the path where thor2 program is?
    Thanks for all your help.

    Ive added the path of the .ffu file right before RM-975 and after the " and it worked, The product code was changed and the Windows Recovery tool recognized the phone as a new phone.
    Thanks a lot!!!!!

    Hello,

    Has anybody got success in changing the product number of Lumia 820 AT&T rm-824 from 059M0F3 to 059R4Q6?
    I'm not familiar in flashing and I'm afraid to get a brick.

    Thanks

    I think I am missing something here but neither of the files used in the original procedure were .ffu files but .xap.

    I used "CustomPFD_0003" and "CustomWPSystem_0500" Is one of these the firmware file? I suspect so but would like confirmation please.

    Thanks.

    Perhaps a stupid question, but if I de-brand my AT&T GoPhone Lumia 635, will I FINALLY be able to use Visual Voicemail on CricKet Wireless, or will I need to de-brand and then cross-flash to the CricKet ROM?

    I'm currently on W10M, so it looks like this will be a bit of a project, but my 635 doesn't have the most up to date firmware (STILL!) so, no Graphic Equalizer and it runs a bit fussy under Windows 10 Mobile. I just want to be sure that the feature I want will be there after a few hours of work, haha.

    You will have to debrand and then flash to the Cricket firmware for VVM to work. Cricket VVM currently works on Cricket branded devices only.

    Ugh, that is what I had feared... I really wanted to use the NA un-branded ROM so that I could get Firmwares directly from MS and not through ATT/CricKet, but like you said, CricKet VVM only works on the CricKet ROM, so that is my path forward, it would seem.

    Now, to get this device ready... I wish this process could be done from W10M, as it would save me an absolute ton of time.

    Do you happen to know if the CricKet firmware is as recent as the ATT post-paid firmware? What ROM has the most recent firmware? I should flash to that first, then to the CricKet ROM, or would the CricKet flash over-write it all?

    As far as I know, the Cricket firmware hasn't been updated to WP8.1 Update 2, meaning you still won't get the equalizer and all the performance benefits. Also the Cricket firmware would overwrite all firmware versions so it doesn't matter what you flash first.

    I'm on cricket wireless as well and i haven't been on any cricket branded phones until now. That means no VVM. You could try a third party VVM provider called YouMail.
