Change Your Phone Name !

Here is a small trick to rename your Sony Ericsson phone’s name to something cool ! And the new name will be displayed instead of the actual name in the phone status ! And also in service menu !
Example i have renamed my phone to Xtreme Device instead of w610i !

There are two method to change phone name ! Using default_upgrade or customize_upgrade

All you have to do is copy the the code below and paste it in notepad and save the file as an xml file

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<!-- DOCTYPE customization SYSTEM "customization.dtd" -->
<customization>
<!-- Information tags that will become visible in the phones service menu -->
<info>
<phone-name>New Name Here!</phone-name>
</info>
</customization>

and name the file as default_upgrade.xml

Or you can use this code and create an xml file in notepad with name as customize_upgrade.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<customization>
<info>
<phone-name>New Name Here!</phone-name>
</info>
</customization>

In place of New Name here in the xml file write your own name !

If you are using default_upgrade xml then upload it to tpa/preset/default/** xml here **
Of if you using the customize_upgrade.xml then upload it to tpa/preset/custom/** xml here**

You can upload the file to respective locations using XS++ FSX or FAR MANAGER ! Thanks to 93bh for this idea !
