Debrand Samsung i8910 Omnia HD - Introdution
If you are looking to debrand your Orange Samsung i8910 Omnia HD handset; then look no further. On this website you will find the tools / software and Video Tutorials needed to debrand your Samsung i8910 Omnia HD.

What is debranding you might ask? Well some network operators replace the phones firmware with their own custom firmware tailored towards their own services. In Orangeís case you see the orange colour themes / logos and their own applications/tools/widgits instead of the generic ones you would expect to find if you were to purchase the phone sim free.

This can be very annoying at the best of times and not only that it means you have to rely on them to release firmware updates, appose to Samsung; which in not going to be as often letís be honest.

So if youíre wondering if itís really worth doing then I would have to say YES. On the 11th July 2009 Samsung began to release official Firmware Updates via PC Studio 7, these updates are not available to branded Orange handsets, also the updates are limited to certain regions.
