Hey I'm in a very similar situation, I need to restore to an original Vodafone branded ROM in order to unlock my phone and I appreciate the help you guys are giving. If I have no data or apps I'm concerned about preserving do I need to go through the IMEI zeroing process in your link? Or is it possible to simply find a Vodafone ROM and flash it through the recovery menu?
Hey guys, I'm a little confused about something and was hoping you could advise me - I've installed CM9 and its great, however I didn't realise you had to unlock your phone before you installed a custom ROM and its turning out to be a pain in the arse to restore it to stock. In the thread just above this one it details a whole long procedure in order to restore to stock, so is the method in this one more dangerous or something?
Also the link in the OP doesn't work anymore, would someone kindly reupload it to Dropbox for me, or confirm that I can download one of these and flash it though the menu stated in the OP? What makes it difficult is that I need all the Vodafone stuff in order to get it unlocked. I do have an IMEI backup from before I flashed it though.
I have no data that needs preserving on the phone, and would appreciate any help!
