I picked up an 8700 (dark blue version) from Three Hong Kong for use on Smartone-Vodafone Hong Kong. I followed the instructions here to upgrade the firmware. Here's what I did:
Grabbed the Smartone-Vodafone 4.1 Package
Grabbed the Smartone 4.10.284 Firmware
Followed the instructions (and grabbed the ALX) as instructed
Everything seemed to work perfectly, and when my device restarted I was presented with a nice Vodafone home screen. However, I have two issues:
1. When booting, the device shows a THREE splash screen. Obviously this has not been updated with the firmware flash. Any clues why this is, or how I can change it?
2. I have a THREE icon where my browser icon (for Smartone In, their in house web service) should be.
Im confused why these were not replaced? Perhaps I am misunderstanding what this upgrade is, is it not a full firmware upgrade?
Any help would be really welcome here, im stumped.
