Default Wiping and reloading not working

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 9000 Bold supplied by T-Mobile UK. I've successfully unlocked it and now I'm trying to remove everything that's T-Mobile specific. I followed and used the procedure to wipe using JL CMDER and I've used the same application to factor reset the Blackberry and remove the policy. I've set up DM so it doesn't update automatically and during the installation I deselected the option to update automatically so that it wasn't installed.

I've deleted the vendor.xml file.

After the wiping, factory reset and OS reinstallation the BB still registers with the T-Mobile network and the menu still has icons for T-Mobile's web'n'walk applications.

How can I clear all of the T-Mobile settings so its just a blank Blackberry not connected, linked or registered to any network?

What do you mean it still registers with T-Mobile. When it boots up, you see the T-Mobile splash screen?

You will always see that. You can't remove that (legally).

If you're talking about the MFI Loader, yes, you can. However, that is illegally pirated software. And doing it wrong will brick your device.

I'm talking about

BlackBerry Master Control Program (MCP): News

Is that the MFI loader?

That looks different, and I am not sure if that will allow you to remove branding from the device. I didn't see anywhere that states that it can.

MCP is similar to BBSAK. It can't change branding.

Please people, do not try MFI. There is a very good possibility that you will brick your BB.

I was thinking it was like BBSAK from reading the specs.

I second NOT USING MFI!

Also, since MFI is an illegally pirated software, it is forbidden to discuss it on this forum. So, if anyone decides to use it and bricks there device. DON'T LOOK FOR HELP ON THIS FORUM!

Yes it is the T-Mobile splash screen and also a message that the device has been registered with the T-Mobile network, then there's that web'n'walk application icon. As long as I can use it on the network of my choice then the aesthetics isn't a real issue.

If it's unlocked, then enter your SIM card and it should work. The icons are most likely the Theme it's set to.
