Thanks man, i really need the a2 uploader. Its 2024 already. You re truly a legendary guy. i've done this (debranding sony symbian phone) before on 2011-2012. Its 2024 no one care about this anymore. But i do care. I wanna buy the old vintage phone back. W980 or w910. Its hard to find the a2 uploader. Most of the download page have been turn off or erased. its been more than a decade. Salute man.
