All's good ... it seems this update has reactivated the network locking put on the phone by VF Australia ... so i just went to the VFAU website and found my network unlock code and it's now fully stored and remembered in case the phone lasts long enough to reinvoke another one of these PHEW

Download the files beneath the Odin3 image unzip it and use the MD5 with Odin and use the MD5 in the Phone section...I think.
