    S4 here running Cyanogenmod 11. Best thing I ever did was to flash it. There's plenty of guide online for it but make sure you backup everything important to you before doing anything.

    I'm just interested in a clean unbranded official firmware nothing else. Thanks though.

    How come Bryon? I'm just asking out of curiosity. I've felt no need or desire to root my S6 yet

    He didn't mention anything in his first post as to why he wants to do it, which is why I asked the question, out of curiosity! also EE is a service provider, so even if the phone was rooted he would still be on EE.

    I'm not rooting. Debranding doesnt need rooting its just putting a official unbranded firmware on it with none of the EE guff on it. Also means quick update to latest software like 5.1.1

    This sounds interesting so do you download a random firmware from, lets say SamMobile.com and install it on your phone?

    From the way I understand it, if EE is like American carriers, some of those apps are required to run on their network. Especially for things like LTE and WiFi calling. That's why it can take so long for the different carriers to release their phones software, because they are having to do all of their little tweaks to make it run everything that is advertised. Some networks use their app to handle of the tweaking and such, so odds are if you try to run a different firmware that isn't your carriers it probable won't have all is the functionality that it does now.
