    Hi,

    I have a desire that is on O2 and running 2.2. I would like to go to the stock version of Froyo but unable to find an RRU that will allow me :( I have downloaded 2.10 but as the O2 RRU is 2.14 I get bootloader errors, signature errors when trying to flash it.

    Any advice please on what I can do to get stock ?

    TIA

    That won't help - the only way to install the unbranded version is to downgrade back to 2.1 (unbranded) and then upgrade from there.

    Downgraded to 2.1 and then perform a upgraded OTA via Wifi. Am now running on a shiny unbranded desire apart from no mobile internet :( I have a monthly contract with O2 so if anybody knows what I need to do to get it back that would be great pretty please :D

    There is, but you can only install a higher or equal RUU. O2 = 2.14, unbranded = 2.09/2.10.

    Your phone should pick up the settings from your sim (I assume it's an O2 sim as well).

    I just click it, but I'm not on a Sense ROM, it may be different.

    A quick Google search tells me that these two should be set up:


    Mobile Web:
    Name: o2
    APN: mobile.o2.co.uk
    Username: web
    Password: web
    MCC: 234
    MNC: 10

    MMS:
    Name: MMS
    APN: wap.o2.co.uk
    Username: o2wap
    Password: password
    Server: http://mmsc.mms.o2.co.uk:8002
    MMSC: http://mmsc.mms.o2.co.uk:8002
    MMS Proxy: 193.113.200.195
    MMS Port: 8080
    MCC: 243
    MNC: 10

    You need 2 apns. One for net, one for mms.

    For net
    APN=mobile.o2.co.uk
    username and password= O2web
    MCC=234
    MNC=10
    APN Type= default,supl

    MMS

    APN=wap.o2.co.uk
    Username=o2wap
    Password=password
    MMSC=http://mmsc.mms.o2.oc.uk:8002
    MMS Proxy=193.113.200.195
    MMS port=8080
    MCC=234
    MNC=10
    APN type=mms

    You should now have 2 apn's. One has a green dot when selected, but the mms should not have this functionality if created correctly.

    if you want uncompressed web browsing and images then you can use
    username: bypass
    password: bypass

    be warned tho on gprs and edge its slow as hell
