UK Xperia X10 Eclair update due in a “few days”

by X10 on November 1, 2010

UK Xperia X10
Whilst many in the UK expected the Xperia X10 Android 2.1 update soon after it hit Nordic handsets, it appears that it’s been delayed for a few days. According to the Sony Ericsson UK twitter account, the update has taken “longer than we hoped but we will get this update to you in the next few days.

However, they contradict themselves a few times by saying that only the date of the update will arrive in a couple of day’s time. They haven’t given a reason for the delay apart from saying that “there are tests that need to be carried out for UK.” Hopefully, it won’t be too far behind. In related news, the guys over at the SE Product Blog said that the generic kits have been made available for Russia, Singapore, Indonesia and many African countries today.

Hmm…Not good.

But hopefully it’ll be here soon. Although ive been hearing the update slows the phone somewhat O_o

2 me November 1, 2010 at 8:31 PM

3 Ben21 November 1, 2010 at 8:32 PM

Oh dear…SE are taking so long. Wonder what the tests are ???

4 Your Mum November 1, 2010 at 8:33 PM

rofl@ africa having it before the US & UK.

5 steve November 1, 2010 at 8:33 PM

well according to sony ericsson uk in a response to me they are in contact with networks about the update and a timescale for networks to release it maybe this is part of the delay as i think that most of the x10’s in uk are branded ones

6 Ben21 November 1, 2010 at 8:35 PM

Do quite like the idea of nordic firmware now. Lol.

7 no date yet November 1, 2010 at 8:35 PM

no date yet!

8 Arty November 1, 2010 at 8:36 PM

Tired and bored of waiting, so installed nordic firmware. Works great!
The only thing which really pisses me off is that there is no chance to hang up by pressing power button.

Actually I do get why it takes SE so long to launch update here in the UK. Just moved recently and trying to move my broadband with o2 to a new flat – just to get activated (without any connections and engineering stuff) – o2 says it will take 10 working days… No wonder that each operators’ “computer says no” to any innovation here…

15 Adnan Hodzic November 1, 2010 at 8:40 PM

Those who want to update to 2.1 using Nordic ROM using 3 simple steps please follow my guide on: http://bit.ly/b5VcEC

16 Simon 'theMactivist' Royal November 1, 2010 at 8:41 PM

This really takes the piss. What ‘tests’, shouldn’t this have already been done. ‘Next few days’ what the hell does that mean are we talking literaly a few days or weeks.

We have already waited months for the bloody update and now we have to wait for unknown reasons. The very least SE could do is start being honest with its customers and give a good reason and stable date – if they infact have one.

I have an unlocked/unbranded/generic firmware X10 Mini Pro and it seems there is a delay behind the X10 full size in releases so far so are we talking even further delays for the Mini/Mini Pro.

17 buza November 1, 2010 at 8:42 PM

@no date yet fucken looser

18 Ben21 November 1, 2010 at 8:43 PM

Comments like that should be binned.

19 Your Mum November 1, 2010 at 8:46 PM

@Adnan Hodzic, i’ve had enough of waiting for the UK update. I’m going to follow that tutorial and debrand my phone. When the UK version is actually release, is it possible to update the phone again using the UK version so its like i’ve never debranded the phone in the first place?

20 Ben21 November 1, 2010 at 8:46 PM

Im on Virgin…Me thinks a long time before i see it.

What a tw*t.

24 Simon 'theMactivist' Royal November 1, 2010 at 8:49 PM

@Ben21

I have a Virgin X10 Mini Pro and it is unlocked/unbranded/generic and it came from Virgin, seems I am not the only one so you might be lucky and just have a vanilla phone – other people with full sized Virgin X10s reported the same.

25 X10 November 1, 2010 at 8:49 PM

Stop with all the pointless repeated long-posts or the ban-hammer is coming out.

26 Your Mum November 1, 2010 at 8:50 PM

I think its about time mr X10 got a grip of this little punk… IP ban him if you can!

27 Your Mum November 1, 2010 at 8:51 PM

@X10, Halo gamer? 🙂

28 FOOODZ November 1, 2010 at 8:52 PM

anyone can tell mw when it will be in the middle wast (jordan)?

29 Ben21 November 1, 2010 at 8:53 PM

Thanks X10. @Simon – Kool. Thats a bit of luck then. We might actually see it this month. Lol.

30 the duck whisperer November 1, 2010 at 8:54 PM

i have a feeling its gonna be delayed again for the UK. They say they need to test it out first but testing takes ages.
You test it, you find something wrong, you fix it and test it again, and then you find another problem and so on……it wont be a few days time, the update for the UK will take much more than a few days.
im gonna check back this website in a weeks time and see whats going on then…..

31 Adnan Hodzic November 1, 2010 at 8:54 PM

@Your Mum,

Yes, Root Explorer will take backup of original file, just make sure you save it somewhere safe, and later on you should be able to “debrand” it back to UK using that same file.

32 CompactDistance November 1, 2010 at 9:03 PM

Or you could download the Nordic version from XDA, works perfectly.

33 zodiac November 1, 2010 at 9:14 PM

The brazen dishonesty of this company is just staggering. From some of the issues some people are experiencing with the Nordic firmware it is patently obvious that they just released an unfinished version to small markets in SEs backyard where they are generally popular so they can claim they have released the update. The devilish marketing men at SE seem to have done it again. They knew they would not be able to meet the October timeline so they came up with a strategy truly unbecoming for a company the size of SE.
I mean seriously how different can the software for the Nordics be from the rest of the world that other parts are still testing the thing. An x10 in Norway functions 99.9% in the same way as an x10 in England. The only differences are in the language and keyboard layout.
Rather than coming clean and facing yet more outrage, they chose dishonesty(sadly a recurring theme with this company). “Staged rollout” was just a euphemism for delay.
Word to Google and Sony….don’t let the Swedish Ericsson drag your reputations into the gutter with this diabolical nonsense.

34 Your Mum November 1, 2010 at 9:17 PM

@Adnan Hodzic, where does the backup file save to? I cant find it? I need to find it so i can move it to my PC so its safe then i can continue to update the phone.

35 @parksie79 November 1, 2010 at 9:18 PM

I’m actually more excited about this update than my girlfriend (who owns the X10) just want to have a play, lol. Come on SE just release it for the UK, sure if the Nordic ones working without too many problems then its about time.

36 Zaryab November 1, 2010 at 9:20 PM

@ Adnan Hodzic thanx me download 2.1 finaly
i spend whole day infront of pc w8n for updatee
Se :@ didnt show up

37 Your Mum November 1, 2010 at 9:22 PM

41 Samboo November 1, 2010 at 9:35 PM

42 Jeff November 1, 2010 at 9:36 PM

To those of you willing to root your phone to gain access to the new 2.1 OS without fully understanding the risks involved with doing so, please educate yourself before blindly rooting your phone due to impatience.

I’m not against rooting but some ppl don’t even seem to know what rooting means, yet they are asking for instructions on how to do it.

Interesting article:
http://androidandme.com/2009/09/hacks/why-not-everyone-should-root-their-android-phones/

43 Lex November 1, 2010 at 9:48 PM

I asked why SE haven’t just released the FW to everyone at once and there response was as follows:
Lex,
Regarding just releasing it. In principle, and especially for you highly interested “power-users” it could be very interesting. However as I understood it it isn’t even legal for us as a supplier since most (if not all) markets need some kind of type approval for mobile phones to be ok to be used in the networks. That’s one important difference to mobile phones compared to many other types of upgradeable electronic gadgets.

44 Ben21 November 1, 2010 at 10:02 PM

Im on Virgin and i just went into the service menu and it says: X10i Brand: Customized and firmware is R2BA026 GENERIC. Does this mean ill get the update as soon as its out in the UK?

45 Simon 'theMactivist' Royal November 1, 2010 at 10:25 PM

Hi

I have an unbranded/unlocked X10 Mini Pro I got from Virgin. How do you tell if it is generic?

Phone software says GENERIC. File system says WORLD. Customization says 1238-0199_R3A. Someone said R8A was uncustomised version and R3A was O2 but it cant be as mine is R3A.

46 Paul November 1, 2010 at 10:27 PM

oooogh, This could be a long one, where all my UK Vodaphone branded handset owners at? wanna see how full this boat im on is. 🙂

47 Jimb0 November 1, 2010 at 10:43 PM

I did the Nordic switch last night. It took me 17′ overall and got the update! Fast, easy and no issues so far…!

48 OSCAR November 1, 2010 at 10:49 PM

I’m with Samboo!! Where is the X10a At&T upgrade going to be avaialable. Seriously SE you need to get your act straight. Like everyone says it’s just a rollout of FW just choose your language. I mean sheesh here I am waiting to get the additional goodies so then I can still wait for the Liveview piece?! Cmon I don’t want to lose hope here but you guys SE are seriously dissapointing me and everyone that has bought this phone. I meanow hard is it to even upgrade the phone to 256k color at the least. Not to mention that I don’t even have a PS3 to gripe about the Playnow/DLNA functions. Like someone mentioned before let the hackers do the work and make you look like overpaid bums. Time to restructure SE and have Sony(Japan) do it the right way. I love Sony Ericcson phones but it’s so hard to be pleased by such failures of people that are supposedly smarter and better at what they do for a living.

49 grandPoPo November 1, 2010 at 10:50 PM

yeah so us with generic customized 026 firmware, what countrys release do we actually come under? no-one has been able to clarify this. cmon nerds where are ya.

50 Bruce November 1, 2010 at 10:51 PM

Any Canadian Rogers x10a users try debranding and running the Nordic firmware with success? Thanks in advance for any info.

51 korre November 1, 2010 at 11:06 PM

Some 4 hours ago we received the update in the Netherlands.
Took them long enough but i’m love this update.

Hopefully you’ll get it soon.

52 iCEtEA November 1, 2010 at 11:09 PM

Well well SE Updater said there is a update!!!! WOWWOOOO For South Africa!! Must be to good to be true! But just have to test. Update Downloading 97% 98% 99% Updating 0% ~sob~ ……5%…… Updating at 1% per 2 seconds…..32%……This is where Im starting to think that I should have rather used the 2.1 FW I downloaded a hour ago and upload the Nordic ver…85%…..95%….100% WAITING Grrrr Ok its now 20 seconds and it still says Updating 100% ok cable out. and rebooting. Screen Black for 10 seconds. The longest 10 seconds ever! boot boot boooooooot. Blink Blink flash flash I must see if its 2.1!!! URG Sony Logo bla bla bla Activating phone……select local GREATE F@#N 1.6 WHAT A WAIST OF BAND WITH AND TIME

53 korre November 1, 2010 at 11:09 PM

I’ve to admit that i have a debranded xperia x10.

54 iCEtEA November 1, 2010 at 11:16 PM

big “THANKS” FOR SE FOR OUTDATED ALLREADY UPDATE

56 steve November 1, 2010 at 11:48 PM

haha i fucking knew it all because the uk probably has the most branded x10 handsets in europe means unbranded x10 users will have to wait with the branded users until the networks give the go ahead if thats the case we gonna be waiting til end of november (tmobiles prediction) and if ur on 02 probably january 2011

57 MrHyde November 2, 2010 at 1:57 AM

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
Knew it. Motherfuckers can burn in hell.

58 noodles November 2, 2010 at 2:03 AM

t mobile uk are releasing update for x10s at the end of november looks like its not SE fault. Im going nordic

59 Drew November 2, 2010 at 2:06 AM

Used a howto on XDA and edited my default.prop file to make it believe I was using a Nordic “kit”.. got updated straight away. Initially the phones slow when it first boots back up for around half an hour.. have reinstalled all 80 or so apps I had backed up and its working perfectly with no unusual lag.

67 Dutchland November 2, 2010 at 8:58 AM

Ok so there seems to be a delay in the update for the UK.. does that automatically mean that other European countries (except Nordic) such as Holland also have to expect a delay in the update? Because if I’m right that should come this morning… Sorry if the answer has already been given, not gonna read all the topics 🙂

88 AgentMak November 2, 2010 at 10:07 AM

@Bob

Im in UK with an unbranded, unlocked x10 mini pro phone from carphonewarehouse. Since I don’t have any valuable info on my phone that the default backup software can’t restore, I have decided to use the “repair” option on the PC Companion. Will update you on how it goes. Fingers crossed.

I guess he thought it was a prank. It was my desperation that made me go through with it. 😛 It didn’t work. 1.6 still. I wish I could punch someone from Sony.

The reinstall did speed up my phone though. Some consolation atleast……

91 Ben November 2, 2010 at 10:24 AM

Has anyone in the UK actually got the updatee yet??

95 AgentMak November 2, 2010 at 10:42 AM

@Bob

Yasuraka claimed that he reinstalled via SEUS, while I did it through PC C. Before we boo’ed him, I should have tried exactly what he said :P. Since I have some more spare time, I will try this too.

96 zodiac November 2, 2010 at 10:47 AM

To all the fanboys who typically keep making excuses for SE. Unbranded handsets in the UK have never had to wait with branded handsets for all the previous updates. So why now and in any case branded phones get their updates at different times depending on the operator.
The simple truth is SE are not happy enough with the software to release it to any of their major markets.
Fact is fact(to coin one of the worst fanboys your ever likely to come across) the thing just isn’t ready and they chose dishonesty rather than facing the music from angry users.
When you see the update officially released for any of the major markets(UK, France, Germany, Italy, Holland e.t.c) then you’ll know it is ready. Until then nothing has changed from the situation we were in a few days ago except you can through one of the methods at xda, get the doggy Nordic version onto your phones.
I will not be surprised if in the coming days, more bugs and issues are discovered by users with the Nordic version.

97 Ben November 2, 2010 at 10:48 AM

Agentmak, let me know how it goes.

98 Bob November 2, 2010 at 10:58 AM

Oooh! Well the 10:50 flight BA343 from Ibiza can circle for another ten minutes till AgentMak gets back to us!! Hope they’ve got enough fuel!

99 AgentMak November 2, 2010 at 11:00 AM

I seriously doubt Android 2.1 is only 106.3 Mb. That is what the SEUS is downloading at the moment.

100 AgentMak November 2, 2010 at 11:01 AM

Oh how desperate am I…. 😛

101 Yasuraka November 2, 2010 at 11:02 AM

From memory it was a UK Generic firmware I flashed with when I was debranding. I fully expected to wait a week or more for this so was in the process of going to change over to a nordic generic, thankfully I didnt need to go that far 🙂

Haha you may boo me of course if this doesnt work for you, I hope it does though. Meanwhile I will go explore more of this update. So far it is all working smoothly and very little lag.
P.S Angry Birds has to be the quirkiest game I have played in a long time

102 Bob November 2, 2010 at 11:08 AM

According to XDA the file should be 161.7MB

103 AgentMak November 2, 2010 at 11:12 AM

@Bob and Ben: Well I have tried everything and failed. Its still 1.6. Where are the SE employees so I can punch one of them :@

104 Zaryab November 2, 2010 at 11:15 AM

those who root or first flash to nordic den…upgrade to 2.1
or those whose fone is from countries other than nordric & install update 2.1 nordic

Firstly hello to everyone, secondly I have just got off the phone to an o2 assistant, I asked what information she had on the se x10 2.1 update, she went off for a while and when she came back told me this ” I haven’t got any information on this update to tell you, sorry”. I asked her why she had no information and she told me this ” because the technical department refuse to release any information or make a comment”. Oo-er, me thinks i’m going to be waiting a while!!!

111 Ben November 2, 2010 at 11:25 AM

I spoke to Orange on Sunday and asked them if they knew anything about the update.
The team at orange are ACE and always helpfull and knowledgable. They said that they never get told about any updates and are normally last to know. They say they normally get told by the developers “oh by the way they now have this version”.

Which seems about right as we are downloading it from SE not from orange.

@ yasuraka
If you give details or post a link on debarnding
To the generic uk firmware you used to update
To 2.1 ill try it on mine.

I think mine is an unbranded x10i

Boys, boys! Who you shouting at?

SE? They’re not here! They don’t read this ‘unofficial’ blog. You could shout at anyone for the difference it would make.

@Ben21
It’s a fake! Although any date would have been OK, at least it would have meant I could have taken a break from these blimin X10 sites

134 Ben21 November 2, 2010 at 2:41 PM

I know. All i want is a date so i can stop checking.

135 stumblebum uk November 2, 2010 at 2:59 PM

Well, I decided to say feck it and took the plunge and am pleased to say I am now running 2.1 on my x10 mini, many thanks to all the developers at xda for their work. There is absolutely no lag and I have to say I’m rather impressed although the full version of Angry Birds is taking a while to download! 😉

136 TylerDurden November 2, 2010 at 3:23 PM

@ yasuraka (if your still about lol)

what version of the uk generic did you debrand to??
UK Generic X10i Firmware (R1FA016)
UK Generic X10i Firmware (R2BA020) – i believe this one to be the most recent
but obviously not totally upto date i think thats 026..

if i cant get it to work with the uk one i think im gonna debrand to a nordic one and try it then but keep a backup of the original uk firmware im on now to go back to when the proper uk update comes out lol

sorry but im getting sick sore and f***ed off with the waitin lol

137 Yasuraka November 2, 2010 at 3:35 PM

@TylerDurden

I flashed with R2BA020 then used SEUS to update to 26 🙂

144 skilucci November 2, 2010 at 7:25 PM

Fed up waiting an hypothetic update, and I didn’t want a nordic firmware,so I flashed with a generic global 2.1 firmware. Really easy and what a new phone it is! Everything works fine.

Don’t be afraid , JUST DO IT !

Generic global firmware x10i

152 Lex November 2, 2010 at 8:59 PM

I gave up in the end and went with the nordic FW to 2.1… Interestingly, once you update, in the software info says:

File System Version:
WORLD-1-4-8_2.0.A.0.504

Does this mean that SE are just going to make all generic versions under 1 umbrella? It will certainly speed up updates in the future if it is the case. 🙂

All U have to do is install java on your pc and run the .bat (don’t forget you must be fast after connecting your X10 in update mode ( X10 off, push right button and plug usb) to push enter to star the flash application).

Then wait 2 minutes and that’s it.

@ chris

sorry to sound bitter and bitchy, im off my meds..

nah but seriously tho dude.. this update malarkey has got me strung up a bit
as we all know SE are dragging the mutha-fukin-livin-daylights out of it now..

and im sure you mentioned you had the same phone as myself (well phone specifics)
so even the slightist touch of hope is magnified into a gigantic fukin rainbow
of colourful 2.1 uk update happyness.. (ok that might be ott)

but ive had a long shitty day partly to do with this update and to do with a
gas explosion that happened today.. peeps that are resident in the uk
should know what im referring too..

anyway im gonna be a grumpy SE hater for a while until they release 2.1..

(in a low monotone un-enthueseastic dyslexic groan)
fffffuuuuukkkkkkkk sssssooooonnnnyyyyy eeeerrrriiiicccccsssssssoooonnnnnnnnnn

177 unknown wants to know November 2, 2010 at 11:31 PM

every1 chill pill, you’ll get 2.1, but hav u ever thought wen will we (x10 owners) get 2.2,

178 Chris November 2, 2010 at 11:33 PM

i do agree with you , sony ericsson have really dragged this on and taken the utter piss to realise this , and its even worse they arent ever going to release 2.2 or higher out ..
and im abit annoyed that the update seems to be abit laggy but startup cleaner pro and a restard should fix that if not then they better fix it quick
and btw yes in the pic my sony ericsson has a black digitizer and a white shell 😉

179 Ben November 2, 2010 at 11:35 PM

Chris is your handset branded too your network?

Did you have something on your phone telling you too update?

200 Chris November 3, 2010 at 12:11 AM

infact yes i did but it wasent a notification , i went to
settings – about phone – software update and then it said there was an update available with hd recording ect… and to do it on the computer , you can obvuisly imagine how excited i got haha and the sony ericsson pc companion still said it was up to date so i did it through the update centre and it did it

201 Rolex November 3, 2010 at 12:11 AM

I’m from the U.K, and I now have this update. When I connected to the computer SE PC Companion said I have the latest software, but when I went into Settings>About Phone>Software Update and clicked Update, it came up with a sign saying update available.
After that I just plugged it into the computer (with pc companion still saying I have the latest software) and updated regardless, and now I have 2.1..

202 Rolex November 3, 2010 at 12:12 AM

I cant believe we posted the same thing at the same time.. Well enjoy 2.1 people!

203 Chris November 3, 2010 at 12:13 AM

hahahah SNAP !

204 Ben November 3, 2010 at 12:15 AM

What network you on mate? Is it branded or unbranded? Which part the uk you from? as im in the midlands and nothing on my unbranded one

205 noodles November 3, 2010 at 12:41 AM

anyone else trying that. i did it earliar but lost all my contacts even though i backed it up and still was only running on 1.6

206 Ben21 November 3, 2010 at 1:51 AM

I must sleep now. You 2 were very lucky. Still waiting here on virgin/generic firmware. We will get it just stay calm.

207 Rolex November 3, 2010 at 2:08 AM

@Ben The Phone is unbranded, and I’m from London. Have you checked whether yours is unbranded in the service menu? Seems odd if not all U.K people are getting the update. Its tough waiting, but rest assured, the update is highly polished. Atleast you dont have to wonder whether its worth going through the trouble of updating! Its slow upon first start up, must be alot of background processes goin on prepping the phone for 2.1, but after about half an hour and a couple of restarts..its blindingly fast..!
Feel so relieved that its done..and doubly so having experienced the benefits..live wallpapers, hd apps, hd camera (be patient first 30 mins or so, system tasks slow playback/recording but this does subside, and it is much, much better)

I hope it makes it a bit easier for all of you to wait knowing its infact worth that wait!

208 mode893 November 3, 2010 at 6:13 AM

My UK generic says I have an update which needs a PC. It’s definitely here folks

209 iad November 3, 2010 at 7:47 AM

210 iad November 3, 2010 at 7:47 AM

211 Waiting November 3, 2010 at 7:52 AM

Yea still waiting for ORANGE UK… I’m in India so hopefully by evening today. Fingers crossed

212 iad November 3, 2010 at 7:55 AM

nothing on pc companion either … Anyone in the UK with a branded handset have it yet ?

which networks ?

213 Parksie November 3, 2010 at 8:11 AM

My mrs is on t-mobile uk, just checked hers and no update yet. Did send t-mobile a tweet, they replied saying they have no set dates yet for the update???

214 iad November 3, 2010 at 8:18 AM

2.1 by the end of October yeah ???

215 sharif November 3, 2010 at 8:54 AM

UK orange here. clicked on repair.. now stuck on “please wait..”
????
how long does it take?

216 Simon 'theMactivist' Royal November 3, 2010 at 9:04 AM

I have an Unbranded/Generic/Virgin supplied X10 Mini Pro in UK.

Still no update via phone, SEUS or PCC. No notification either.

Some X10 UK people have reported updates being available, some even got a notification.
Any UK Mini or Mini Pro users updated officially?

217 SimonS November 3, 2010 at 9:24 AM

Updated my X10 last night in the UK by rooting and changing firmware to Nordic. Worked a treat and took about 10mins.

2.1 is good. Not life changing but makes a good phone (which it was before the update) even better.

218 James November 3, 2010 at 9:25 AM

A new day…and still…nothing!!!

@Sharif….i don’t think your supposed to be clicking on repair…more like update?

219 Ben21 November 3, 2010 at 9:53 AM

Stilll nothing today. Can’t work out how some have got it??

220 John November 3, 2010 at 10:01 AM

I have just carried out a check now and my phone says an update is available, I’m in the UK on O2 network. I’ll keep you guys posted if it works.

221 Simon 'theMactivist' Royal November 3, 2010 at 10:10 AM

@John

Let us know. You got an O2 branded X10 or using an unbranded one on the O2 network.

Keep us informed. I got an x10 Mini Pro from Virgin nothing here. A few reports this morning of UK people getting updates. Fingers crossed it is coming in the next couple of days at most.

222 Ben November 3, 2010 at 10:12 AM

Nothing here yet! you sure you guys havnt got global generic?

223 James November 3, 2010 at 10:24 AM

Im on o2, and nothing 🙁

I bought my phone from ebay…how do you find out if its unbranded or not…i think it is :S

224 Puddy Cat November 3, 2010 at 10:35 AM

I don’t know what your all excited about. More apps don’t work with this custom made android, there’s bugs, its confusing and a fuss to use. I’m putting putting 1.6 back on my phone once I’ve rooted it to change my brand back to the united kingdom. If you like a smooth, clean phone that doesn’t mess you about, don’t upgrade.

225 Covered November 3, 2010 at 10:38 AM

Yet again people are getting fooled by idiots who come on here and pretend that the update is available just to get a rise out of people. It isn’t in the UK yet, it would be announced by Sony Ericsson first. Don’t waste your time trying.

226 SimonS November 3, 2010 at 10:48 AM

I genuinely have the update.

If you can’t wait then go to the XDA developers website and check out how to debrand to Nordic.

I have done this and the phone is exactly the same. Market is in pounds, it finds my t-mobile network fine and my 3G works a treat.

It’s a great easy way to get 2.1 with out all the waiting.

227 Covered November 3, 2010 at 10:50 AM

Great way to invalidate your warrenty too.

228 Puddy Cat November 3, 2010 at 10:54 AM

@covered, you can put the phone back to the way it was when you first baught it 🙂 so no, it doesn’t mess up your warranty.

229 SimonS November 3, 2010 at 10:57 AM

@Puddy Cat

Agreed, when it’s released in the UK, I will just flash it back to UK firmware.

Happy days for all.

230 Bob November 3, 2010 at 11:35 AM

I think SE are treating us like you would treat a child throwing a tantrum. They’ll ignore us till we stop kicking and screaming, then they’ll turn round and say “Have you calmed down now? OK here you here’s 2.1” and pat us on the head as we go skipping off.

Till next time!

231 Ben21 November 3, 2010 at 11:41 AM

I cant be bothered with it today. Jus gonna wait for an see.

232 TylerDurden November 3, 2010 at 11:49 AM

lol @ Bob

“pat us on the head as we go skipping off”

so no more info yet then? seems their twitter has fallen down dead,
last tweet was about 20 hrs ago.. ahh the sweet agony of want versus wait..

reminds me of being a child again..

233 Bob November 3, 2010 at 12:23 PM

Yeah, I’m trying the technique of, if I ignore it maybe I’ll be pleasant surprised when I get home tonight…..

It’s not working very well, F5 is still getting a good workout!

234 Jake November 3, 2010 at 1:35 PM

just seen that the LiveView display will be released over here on the 19th so hopefully SE will have the foresight to gives us the 2.1 update before they release this.

235 Puddy Cat November 3, 2010 at 1:37 PM

@Simons, that’s exactly what I’m doing 🙂 I can’t even restore my backup with thus Swedish version? Says file can’t be read. Did you have this problem? I think its because I edited the system file.

236 Little Rich November 3, 2010 at 1:45 PM

Updated my X10i last night in the UK by rooting and changing one of the system files to indicate region was Nordic. Connected to PC and 2.1 installed cleanly – bit of jiggery pokery required to get contacts showing and had to D/L all apps again – but phone is running smoothly now.

Been off charge for 6 hours and battery only dropped approx 10% thus far.

237 SimonS November 3, 2010 at 3:29 PM

@Puddy Cat

Never tried the back up in all honesty.

Still quite impressed with 2.1.
SE have done a good job with it, expecially the phonebook. before it was a pile of crap but now the phonebook is actually useful and the call screen is actually useable now. Also found messaging to be better set out.

All in all well done SE.

238 TylerDurden November 3, 2010 at 3:47 PM

basically guys im all set to join the dark side and go nordic…
ive got a uk, customized, generic x10 i

ive just rooted it, found how to edit the file…

thing is im unsure about doing it.. i dont really want the nordic firmware
but i want 2.1 lol and at present this seems like the only way to get it NOW.

has anyone in the uk (thats following this forum) done it yet?
and if so is there a way to revert and update to the uk firmware
after installing the nordic?

i have seen that 2,1 can be rooted so i imagine the same technique would work in reverse

but i dont know….

points of view anyone?

P.S – ive not gone through with the update yet but i have tried /settings/about phone/software update and sure enough with the edited default.prop file the update shows… motherfuxer lol

having a real bad crisis of consience here…

239 jpspringall November 3, 2010 at 4:02 PM

@TylerDurden

Have you got a link the instructions you were following.

Cheers

James

240 Simon 'theMactivist' Royal November 3, 2010 at 4:04 PM

@TylerDurden

I know what you mean. So tempted to say f*ck it and go nordic. Desperate for 2.1 but would really like to wait for the official uk one but it depends on how long its gonna be.

SE really need to get their act together. This is a shambles.

241 SimonS November 3, 2010 at 4:06 PM

@TylerDurden

Go for it. I can’t even tell that there is a difference between the Nordic and the UK firmware.

Eveyrthing is exactly the same. Language is in english, market is in £’s, its all the same.

Go for it man…you won’t regret it.

242 TylerDurden November 3, 2010 at 4:25 PM

@ jpspringall

sure!

http://foolcontrol.org/?p=956

its quite simple to root and edit but the instructions are a touch choppy on there so..

the links you need to download the tools to do the job are in !green!
when you have downloaded them connect your x10i and i think ONLY X10 I !!!
to your pc and drop the two apk files in a folder on your memory card (i just made one called root suff and copied them into there)

disconnect from pc and at this point you will need a file browser for your phone (i use OI file manager, free from the market)

open the oi file manager and locate your folder, tap to go into it and then run the apk’s in this order…

1st – X10Root (it will have on screen instructions so dont worry just tap “root” and wait for a mo!!)

then restart phone and install the “root.explorer” (again there are on screen instructions so please read carefully!!!!!!)

after that its a matter of editing the default.prop..

you want to start the root explorer from your app menu (slide up from the bottom and look for root explorer lol) when its open flick to the bottom and go into the “system folder”
then find the “default.prop” file long press and from the pop up menu slide down and tap edit as txt file

the main bulk of the instructions are on the website but ive gone through most of it as there were bits that were not very well explained..

and lastly!!!!!

these are the 3 lines you will need to edit to be sure it works..
they are all in the top 6 lines but BE CAREFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ro.semc.version.cust=1234-8465
ro.product.name=X10_1234-8465
ro.semc.country=Nordic

when done press the left button and then save and exit. and it does save a backup of your
original file..

also lol

i take no responcibility for my spelling, or any bricking of phones that might occur..
im having enough trouble deciding if i wanna do it myself..

ps – sorry for the delay on replying!

243 TylerDurden November 3, 2010 at 4:27 PM

@ SimonS

have you done yours dude?

244 Kristian66 November 3, 2010 at 4:31 PM

Had the day off work today due to the tube strike and decided to do the Nord flash thing. So glad I did. Just got a text from Orange stating that an update will be available in the “next few weeks”. This 2.1 is lovely. Like a new phone again:) I love you SE you lagging ba$tards:)

245 SimonS November 3, 2010 at 4:38 PM

@TylerDurden

Yep did mine last night.

Pretty much the same way way you listed.

REally easy and takes 10 mins or so.

Go for it….be free.

246 bungle November 3, 2010 at 4:54 PM

Hey all
I was on UK Vodafone and went to nordic all is good! Back up the default.prop file on phone so can revert if required 🙂 enjoy

247 TylerDurden November 3, 2010 at 5:01 PM

@ anyone! lol

can you get a program that lets you browse the root of the x10i on your pc to make a backup
copy of the default.prop on your pc?

248 bungle November 3, 2010 at 5:11 PM

Forgot to say use root explorer and it makes backup of default.prop when u save it. Saves on as card

249 TylerDurden November 3, 2010 at 5:18 PM

@ bungle

thanks for that found it!! and saved a copy of it to the mem card!

downloading the 2.1 update now screw SE UK lol ill post back later on with results!

250 Ben21 November 3, 2010 at 6:20 PM

Help please. I followed the instructions above and have Nordic 2.1 but the market won’t let me download. It just stays stuck at “starting download”. Thanks.

251 Benji91 November 3, 2010 at 6:30 PM

@Ben21
Go to settings->Applications->Manage Applications
Find Market and delete all the data in it….i had same problem few weeks ago but I’m choosing to get 2.1 legitimately so at the time i was on 1.6, you might of jus fuc*ed your market LOL
but it might work 😀 haha

252 Ben21 November 3, 2010 at 6:53 PM

Cleared the cache and all ok. Just wondered what would happen if i changed my prop file back to its original settings?

253 TylerDurden November 3, 2010 at 6:56 PM

Hey guys! Back and runnin 2.1 🙂

Must say its rather lush lol

My market works fine!! Might be a network clog?
That or a restart needed. Mine was laggy to begin with
But it seems to be sortin its self out nicely 🙂

254 Jamie November 3, 2010 at 7:05 PM

Why are so many people still talking about going the Nordic fw route when XDA has put a post up that includes a Generic Global fw version with a very simple to use flash tool.
You just download the tool/fw (its all included in the one download), start it up, follow the instruction, and 5-10 minutes later you got Global Generic 2.1 fw installed and ready to go, sod the Nordic one lol…

255 Porksome November 3, 2010 at 8:01 PM

@Jamie

You’re so right.

Downloaded the generic global FW, flashing took ten minutes, first boot about 3 minutes. Was a bit slow for ten minutes but now I’m reveling in speedy 2.1 goodness. 🙂

No rooting, no Nordic FW…..it’s the way to go. And you can always flash back to 1.6 if you want to go the “official” route – hope you’ve got plenty of patience on that one!

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=683793

You need to update the DeviceID text file with you’re device ID (get it after you connect the X10 via USB). If you don’t know how to find your device ID on Windows then you really shouldn’t be messing with flashing your phones ROM!!!

256 Porksome November 3, 2010 at 8:05 PM

Forgot to say…my contacts and settings were wiped but I just re-synced with google and phone book was back.

Use “Settings > Sony Ericsson > Settings Download” to automatically get your internet, mms etc settings.

I’m on Orange UK and everything is working fine.

257 Wizard1906 November 3, 2010 at 8:23 PM

i’m having trouble doing the generic global firmware flash can anyone help me?

259 James November 3, 2010 at 10:03 PM

So am i Stephen…i don’t think the instructions are very good for it…in fact, theres none!

Any help?

260 Stephen November 3, 2010 at 10:12 PM

tell me about it!¬! i’m slightly confused at the question “please connect Xperia in flash mode.” i’m not sure what this is, maybe usb debugging mode? i’m not sure, the instructions could be a bit more clear.

261 Stephen November 3, 2010 at 10:13 PM

i know they usually say, if you have no idea what things mean you shouldnt be touching it, but hey i’m a smart guy given the right instructions, just because i dont know what it means doesnt mean i cant learn or understand.

262 James November 3, 2010 at 10:14 PM

Flash mode is hold down the back button while pluggin in the usb lead from power off…
I get an error after doing that though :S

263 Stephen November 3, 2010 at 10:16 PM

I thought as much, but i had second thoughts after i got a java error after i’d done that

264 James November 3, 2010 at 10:17 PM

Yeah, thats what i get, lol :S
You done the device id bit?

265 Stephen November 3, 2010 at 10:19 PM

i’d got the id from the device properties and updated the device id text file but thats as far as i got

266 James November 3, 2010 at 10:21 PM

I got 2 device id’s, so im just trying each one to see what i get…

267 Porksome November 3, 2010 at 10:22 PM

@ Stephen & James

These are the steps I used to flash the ROM, I accept no responsibility if you brick your phone!!!

YOU WILL LOSE YOUR SETTINGS AND CONTACTS SO BACKUP AND RESTORE IF YOU HAVEN’T GOT THEM BACKED UP ALREADY
1. Plug X10 into PC and get device ID (in device manager)
2. Run SE Update Service to ensure drivers are installed (don’t worry about actually doing an update). Windows should inform you once the drivers are installed via a popup in the taskbar.
3. Decompress the download
4. Open the DeviceID file and change the value to the device ID you got in step 1 and save the file
5. Unplug the X10
6. Turn off X10 and leave for 30 seconds – DO NOT TURN BACK ON
7. Hold the Back key on X10 and plug back into PC, a green light should appear on the X10 – release the back key when you see the green light
8. On the PC run the X10flash batch file
9. Wait for the prompt telling you it is complete (say “Press key to continue” I think when finished). Press enter and window should disappear
DO NOT REMOVE THE X10 UNTIL YOU KNOW IT IS COMPLETE
10. Unplug X10
11. Switch X10 on. It takes about three minutes to power up when you first turn it back on after flashing and you will see a picture of a camera and blue arrow. DON’T PANIC, be patient and let it finish the boot progress.
12. You will now see the 2.1 setup screen

Enjoy 🙂

268 James November 3, 2010 at 10:23 PM

After i try and do the flash, it clears the device id out of notepad :/

269 James November 3, 2010 at 10:25 PM

Nope, nothing, it just clears my notepad and doesn’t connect i guess :S

270 Stephen November 3, 2010 at 10:26 PM

i used the longest device id and it did the same, just wiped it clean. i’ve heard you need to install the 32bit java if you’re running windows 7 64bit but when i try to get the 32 it tells me i already have it and when i go for the 64bit it says i also have that so now i’m stuck

271 James November 3, 2010 at 10:30 PM

I have windows 7 32bit, so don’t think i should have a problem :S
no idea what to do :S

272 Stephen November 3, 2010 at 10:32 PM

and there was me thinking i’d get this all done before bed time and be happy annoying my fiance in bed by playing with 2.1 all night!!

273 Porksome November 3, 2010 at 10:32 PM

@Stephen

You only need to include the last bit of the device ID that looks similar to 5&2A641D06&0&2

I’m running 64 bit Windows 7 with 32bit Java, not sure if it makes a difference but you could uninstall 64bit java and install 32 bit.

My device id comes as 2 different ones just like James’, they are as follows, which would be correct?

USB\VID_0FCE&PID_312E&REV_0100&MI_01
USB\VID_0FCE&PID_312E&MI_01

276 James November 3, 2010 at 10:36 PM

I have the right device id(s) so why is it not connecting…when are you supposed to let go of the back button for it to connect?

277 James November 3, 2010 at 10:39 PM

As Porksome said though it should look similar to 5&2A641D06&0&2
…i have something like that, which is why this suckkkks, lol

278 Stephen November 3, 2010 at 10:39 PM

i’ve released it at various points and still get the java update, just uninstalled java and got the 32bit version and still get the damn error lol

279 Porksome November 3, 2010 at 10:40 PM

Phone must be switched off when you plug it in.

Hold the back button as you plug it in until you see the green light appear.

280 Stephen November 3, 2010 at 10:44 PM

@Porksome

is my device id correct? or am i looking at the wrong thing? i’m going into devices, sony ericsson x10i, properties, hardware, then selecting the x10 i sony ericsson s0101 then into properties, details then hardware id.

281 Porksome November 3, 2010 at 10:45 PM

Open regedit then, Quoted from XDA devs link,

“In the Registry Editor that pops up, click on Computer, press CTRL+F, and search for this: USB\Vid_0fce&Pid_adde\

After it’s finished finding, on the right side you’ll see DeviceInstance, then it says REG_SZ, then it says something like USB\Vid_0fce&Pid_adde\5&270d2a78&0&3
You’ll need that last bit (in this example: 5&270d2a78&0&3 Yours would probably be different). This is your DeviceID (you’ll need it soon!)

Note: You may have multiple of these if you plugged the USB cord into many USB ports on your computer. Each USB port will give a different DeviceID, so if you have more than one DeviceID, you’ll have to choose one, and if it doesn’t work you will have to choose another one.”

282 James November 3, 2010 at 10:47 PM

and at what stage do you press the any key to continue?
i get…

283 James November 3, 2010 at 10:49 PM

Im playing with them though, and nothing!

284 Stephen November 3, 2010 at 10:52 PM

ok i got mine, only have 1. tried again, bloody java error again, although this time the device id changed in the text file and has stayed

285 Porksome November 3, 2010 at 10:54 PM

Just checking the process and think I see the prob.

Run the X10flash.bat
choose the OS version
plug in phone hold back key then release when you see green light
THEN press enter

Didn’t make steps 6&7 clear in my original post…apologies.

286 James November 3, 2010 at 10:54 PM

Do you get as far as me above stephen?

287 Stephen November 3, 2010 at 10:56 PM

no james i didnt. i still get the java error

288 Stephen November 3, 2010 at 10:57 PM

‘java’ is not recognised as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file

289 Porksome November 3, 2010 at 11:01 PM

This is because the environment variable for java isn’t set. type “Java is not recognised as an internal or external command” into google, it will explain how to fix it.

Or change the java command to the full path of the java binary file.

290 James November 3, 2010 at 11:02 PM

Still nothing, thats how i’ve been doing it all along anyway…
Do you have to have the memory card in for it to work…looking at the device id bit, it mentions something about the SEMC flash device :S

291 Porksome November 3, 2010 at 11:03 PM

I had the memory card in when I found the device ID and I mounted it from the phone.

292 James November 3, 2010 at 11:05 PM

Maybe i should try that
Does it wipe it?

293 Porksome November 3, 2010 at 11:12 PM

Didn’t wipe my memory card, photos and such are still on it. DID wipe anything in phone memory.

294 Stephen November 3, 2010 at 11:12 PM

woo fucking hoo thank you porksome i got the answer and its flashing now, if you get the java error james have a look here http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_do_you_stop_the_error_%27java%27_is_not_recognized_as_an_internal_or_external_command_operable_program_or_batch_file

Rubbish…put the card back in and its still not working.
Glad it is for one of us Stephen 🙂

296 Stephen November 3, 2010 at 11:20 PM

booted up the phone, theres a little picture of a camera and an arrow pointing down on the phone im all tingly and excited!!!
now the sony ericsson logo…..oooh……..i think im going t bed happy.

James its on and its working finally. my device id was strange i found the one in regedit as porksome stated then put that in the file. when i failed the first time it actually changed that id in the text file and then it worked.

297 James November 3, 2010 at 11:24 PM

I think the fact it deletes my DeviceID means something is wrong
I have just done the java thing you said, made sure thats all working…so now god knows! Lol

298 Stephen November 3, 2010 at 11:26 PM

good luck mate, i’m off to bed but i’ll pop back tomorrow to see how you got on

299 James November 3, 2010 at 11:29 PM

Night, enjoy 2.1…very jealous!

300 Porksome November 3, 2010 at 11:34 PM

Nice one Stephen, enjoy 🙂

James, i found the ID was deleted if i didn’t plug the phone in before pressing enter after choosing the OS in the batch file.

301 James November 3, 2010 at 11:43 PM

Computer restarted, and still the same.
You have confussed me with that Porksome…im letting go of back button once lights green, and then im pressing enter to continue…is that right?

302 Porksome November 3, 2010 at 11:48 PM

this is the sequence I used (make sure you have the deviceID in the file and its saved).

Disconnect phone
Turn off phone
run the X10flash batch file
select OS, press enter
When prompted, hold back button on X10, plug into PC (still holding back button) then release button when you see the green light
now press enter to continue (on PC) and sit back and wait, LOTS of line of text will scroll by

303 James November 3, 2010 at 11:53 PM

This is like beyond a joke now…still nothing 🙁 i want the lots of lines of text 🙁

304 Porksome November 4, 2010 at 12:01 AM

I only seem to get that error if my phone isn’t connected or the DeviceID file is blank.

I’ve got to get some sleep now but I’ll come back tomorrow evening to see how you got on.

305 Ben21 November 4, 2010 at 12:06 AM

Let go of back button after pressing enter.

306 James November 4, 2010 at 12:10 AM

Thanks guys…im on another version of the flash now, seeing if i can get it to work through that 🙂

you guys trying to flash a “global generic firmware” ver of 2.1 ?

i went the root method, had nordic 2.1 up and runnin on my x10i today 🙂
just flashed back to a uk, customized, generic 1.6 to make sure i can revert
and get the proper uk 2.1 when it arrives 🙂

but in the meantime im gonna stick 2.1 back on lol
might sound like a lot of pissing about but its piss easy to do really!
it the feckin waitin thats the hard part lol

well good luck guys! hope ya get there with the global!

ro.semc.baseband.version=1.1.25

I wonder if thats something specific to 3UKs firmware settings.
Im with you guys and dont really want the Nordic firmware and would much prefer global….I was going to wait as well but since most of us UK customers have branded handsets we may be waiting a while.

that seems a bit strange for a default.prop..

im guessing your on a branded 3 mobile x10i are ya?

you might be able to get round it be flashing to an unbranded generic uk firmware
root yer phone, edit the .prop and away ya go..

but i guess it depends on how desperate you are to get 2.1 lol

Im using nordic 2.1 right now. Its fine. Im loving the live wallpapers. Jus flash it lol.

317 Federico244 November 4, 2010 at 3:37 AM

319 Anthony November 4, 2010 at 8:39 AM

@Tyler durden,

Ive rooted the phone which I wanted anyway so might juts wait now. Im not really keen on those XDA guides for flashing….dont know which flashtool link I need.
Thanks.

320 wunderloaf November 4, 2010 at 8:57 AM

Hello everyone, good morning to u, anyone got any idea when x10 on 3 network in the UK will be getting this update?

321 Bob November 4, 2010 at 9:16 AM

@wunderloaf
Now there’s the million dollar question! Currently we’re probably closer to finding out the location of Lord Lucan then we are of finding out how long “a couple of days” are in the SE world!

322 wunderloaf November 4, 2010 at 9:39 AM

@Bob………………i heard even Lord Lucans running 2.1 on his x10 lol

323 Bob November 4, 2010 at 9:57 AM

@wunderloaf
No, no I’ve heard the Lord Lucan ‘is’ Sony Ericsson and he sits in his volcano lair holding onto the update and laughing up his sleeve has he sees productivity drop across the globe as people sit and wait! He’s actually got an Xperia X15 running Android 3.4!!

324 Jessica Rabbit November 4, 2010 at 11:23 AM

I just received a text from Orange. It reads as follows:

“Great news. In the next few weeks there’ll be a software update for your Sony Ericsson X10. For more information go to orange.co.uk/helpx10”

Fuck this, I’m gonna flash the thing….

325 lee November 4, 2010 at 11:46 AM

I just recieved the same text message

326 Benji91 November 4, 2010 at 11:49 AM

Me three lmao…lmao indeed such a joke, but hey, at least its better than SE, they told us 2 days before the update, at least i know when im getting it for real now 🙂

327 Simon 'theMactivist' Royal November 4, 2010 at 12:15 PM

Hi

It seems 2.2 Froyo isn’t outruled on the X10 range, although nothing is confirmed. Fingers crossed.

328 MarkD November 4, 2010 at 12:23 PM

I got that txt message from orange yesterday too even though my phones unbranded. I did a manual update last night to 2.1 using the flashtool over at xda.

329 h0ruza November 4, 2010 at 12:26 PM

Text from Orange UK said a few weeks but no date as yet
http://help.orange.co.uk/orangeuk/support/personal/445351

It’s rooting time me thinks

330 Bob November 4, 2010 at 3:14 PM

Info from 3 UK

Bob on November 4, 2010
Hi,
Not sure where else to post this question on 3, no real forum to speak of.
Can I ask when 3 will roll out the Android 2.1 upgrade for Xperia X10. Have been monitoring sonyericcsonuk on Twitter and they have said they are waiting on the Networks approval.
Any info gratefully received.

Moderator on November 4, 2010
@ Bob- It is currently going through testing so should be with you in the next few weeks.

****** sigh!!!!!!!!!!! **************

331 TylerDurden November 4, 2010 at 5:19 PM

just wondering…
anyone else think someone is gonna get sacked from SE
for the piss take of a firmware roll out?

maybe its like industrial espionage?
the dude in charge has been hired by apple or microsoft to “sabotage” the 2.1 x10 release lol

no one shall have 2.1 untill another million iphones and windows phones are sold!!
and a little renegade faction stole the nordic 2.1 and let it fly..
and splinter cells around the world are trying to crack it for their region lol which would explain why the update appears for the “random odd lucky x10 user” lol

I SMELL CONSPIRICY!! RREEEEVVVOOOOLLLLTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!

332 TylerDurden November 4, 2010 at 6:37 PM

Hey guys and gals!
Just asked in a virgin mobile shop about 2.1 and he
Had no idea what I ment lol he started talkin bout
Froyo lol

I got a little closer with a vodaphone shop who
Said a couple of weeks 🙁

Either way still fek all about a uk generic 2.1

333 John November 4, 2010 at 7:09 PM

Latest news on the update: http://xperiax10updates.blogspot.com/

334 Chris November 4, 2010 at 8:31 PM

Im gonna stop visiting this site and forget the update for now to get on with my life. 1 month would pass and the update is there waiting for me to download.

Im pretty sure it isnt impossible to do LOL

335 sam uk November 4, 2010 at 8:39 PM

this is bollocks iv had this phone since it was released. with in two months i start reading all the talk about the update. multi touch and hd video recording 16 million colours and guess wot no multi touch no 16 million colour screen no flash player so wot is the point ov this update. wot r the real benefits i hope not just hd vid recording cos not that much seems to have changed its like buyin a ps3 80 gig and then havin an upgrade to a 120 gig not really much ov a difference just a little queiter and smaller is that all we r gettin from this update

336 warab November 4, 2010 at 8:48 PM

im gettin frustrated at how long this is taking i no it soon but come on iv been waiting for fucking ages for this and now i have a message off orange sayin and i quote great news. in the next few weeks there will be a software update for your sony ericsson x10. wtf next few weeks when others already have it in other countrys thats really takin the piss

337 I hate you Se November 4, 2010 at 9:20 PM

WTF Its been a few days and what cant you do that you have the last 8 months to do? after this phone i is never buys from Se again :@

338 Anthony November 5, 2010 at 3:48 AM

Hi guys,

I seem to have lost my 3G reception after rooting and upgrading to 2.1. I do get a signal but its got the letter R next to it and Ive made sure roaming is disabled in the settings so Im not sure what else to do??
I thought I read somewhere somebody else had this problem also? what was the solution or possible fix?
Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

339 Ben November 5, 2010 at 6:51 AM

My generic UK X10 just told me there’s an update available! Woo!

340 Chris November 5, 2010 at 7:04 AM

OH YEAH

I just got it too. Gonna upgrade now 😀

341 Chris November 5, 2010 at 7:08 AM

Im on UK generic. Was on O2 before I did the debrand tutorial possted on this site a while a go.

342 kenny November 5, 2010 at 7:11 AM

343 Chris November 5, 2010 at 7:16 AM

Guys UK its definately on now. Have a go.

Sorry I did lie about me not login on this site for a months haha.

344 Ben November 5, 2010 at 7:46 AM

Most immediate disappointment is that the option to have Timescape as the homepage has gone. 🙁
I don’t want my phone to look like a bog-standard Android! I love Timescape!

345 kevin November 5, 2010 at 7:56 AM

Finally getting update in uk. Checked my phone this morning (no update notification) thro settings, about phone, update software and was told an update was avaiable. Connected to SEUS and it’s updating my phone as I type this. Can’t wait !!!!!!!
Phone is X10i, uk, customized on the orange network

346 Zaryab November 5, 2010 at 8:06 AM

Germany still w8nnn :@

347 Just William November 5, 2010 at 8:33 AM

Yaaaay good times!!! Update is coming through.
Customised UK generic X10i
Even though the im on orange and they told me it will be a few weeks till “their” update is available.
How long have I been waiting for this.
Good times!!!

348 Bob November 5, 2010 at 8:37 AM

Nuts!
After the “few weeks” comments yesterday, I didn’t check this morning, now I’m at work. I’m a fool!
*
Anyone getting it on UK 3 branded?
*
Also anyone with the UK FW see any UK additions, reasons why testing took so long?

349 Rubberman November 5, 2010 at 8:42 AM

Still nothing in Belgium either.
I’ve never seen such an amateuristic roll out of software…

350 Just William November 5, 2010 at 8:42 AM

God knows why there was a picture on the phone with a camera and a down pointing blue arrow. Waited for a while then pressed the camera button and the phone progressed to the SE logo. That was a bit of a scare I thought SEUS bricked me phone lol

351 chrisfack November 5, 2010 at 8:42 AM

Are you guys serious. I have an X10 mini on the 3 network in the U.K and it says my phone is up to date on all software. I have tried P.C companian and seus so what can I do??

352 Chris November 5, 2010 at 8:43 AM

I feel sorry to those who rooted and changed their phone to nordic and brick their phone. Only to find out that UK 2.1 is rolling out today.

Reminded me of this guy I was helping out on a forum who wanted to mod his xbox 360. He couldnt wait for the parts to arrive so he took parts from old electronics equipment. He procede to mod and bricked his xbox 360. Then the parts he ordered online turned up a few hours later LOL.

353 wunderloaf November 5, 2010 at 8:43 AM

Pls, any word on the update for the 3 network UK?

354 Chris November 5, 2010 at 8:44 AM

@chrisfack

This was for the X10i, well thats the phone I have just upgraded.

355 Just William November 5, 2010 at 8:50 AM

No ive got an unbranded UK x10i.
They keyboard has inproved. reminds me of using HTC hero on 1.6.
Im in the setup screens and this phone is soo much faster.
OMG This is now the best phone on the market.
HTC Desire HD has batter issues.
Galaxy S has only 5mp camera.
Im sooo glad im patient.
Well worth the wait.

356 Bob November 5, 2010 at 8:50 AM

@Chris
As a wise man once said, “patience is a virtue”……….
*
Saying that though, I’m with 3 and with their track record I might have to de-brand!

357 Just William November 5, 2010 at 8:53 AM

I would debrand to UK RB….026 and go from there.
I cant imagine this phone getting much better.
Couldnt really give a toss about 2.2

358 chrisfack November 5, 2010 at 9:01 AM

Has anyone updated a mini yet?? If so how do i debrand mine from 3?

359 wunderloaf November 5, 2010 at 9:03 AM

how do i debrand my 3 phone, i want this update NOW!!! lol

360 wunderloaf November 5, 2010 at 9:04 AM

sorry i forgot to say i have x10i…..just getting to excited here for the update

361 Chris November 5, 2010 at 9:07 AM

I think debranding a UK phone would be the best move. I hate branded phone anyway.

If I remember well this is the tutorial I followed. It wasnt difficult. Just make sure you double check and fully understand what you are doing. You will need to swap files thats all.

http://www.xperiax10.net/2010/04/14/debrand-your-xperia-x10-tutorial/

362 Steevi November 5, 2010 at 9:07 AM

Well, I just tried SEUS, and my phone is “up to date”… Gonna give SE a call now.

363 wunderloaf November 5, 2010 at 9:10 AM

i just tried seus and it says mines up to date too!!!!!

364 Kerr November 5, 2010 at 9:17 AM

Still no update availabl on my x10 O2, custom branded, handset. Is there any need for me to “de-brand” my phone?

365 Simon 'theMactivist' Royal November 5, 2010 at 9:22 AM

Hi

Anyone with a Mini Pro in the UK got an update this morning? Just checked on my phone and it says up to date, haven’t checked using SEUS yet.

Mine came from Virgin, but it has no branding and uses generic firmware (pretty sure it does).

Simon

366 Chris November 5, 2010 at 9:27 AM

I think the updates is for the unbranded UK phone at the moment. Branded one to follow in months.

When I first got my O2 X10i first thing I did was unbrand it cause I know O2 are slow with their updates. Be very careful though, you might brick your phone and thats the last thing you want. Once unbranded you will be enjoying the newest firmware release.

367 Steevi November 5, 2010 at 9:28 AM

Well, that was naff. “In the next few days” and “soon”…

368 wunderloaf November 5, 2010 at 9:31 AM

@steevi,
no luck then?

369 Jessica Rabbit November 5, 2010 at 9:36 AM

Finally got it!

I am on Orange UK.

The update has made a good mobile phone even better.

370 TylerDurden November 5, 2010 at 9:40 AM

Mornin all !
You guys sure the uk generic is out for x10i?

371 Simon 'theMactivist' Royal November 5, 2010 at 9:43 AM

Hi

How do you know if you have generic/global firmware or not? I am pretty sure I have as there is nothing Virgin related on my X10 Mini Pro, but still no update this morning.

Have any UK Mini Pro users updated this morning? What is the generic firmware number?

Also, are we getting notifications on the phone or is it via SEUS or PCC?

372 wunderloaf November 5, 2010 at 9:45 AM

anyone got news of update on 3 network for x10I?

373 AgentMak November 5, 2010 at 9:55 AM

I have an unbranded unlocked X10 mini pro, the firmware states : Generic World, which I am guessing is the same as Global Generic?
No update yet, nothing on the phone or SEUS or PC companion.

374 Kerr November 5, 2010 at 10:10 AM

I can confirm 2.1 upgrade available on UK O2, custom branded handset from Carphone Warehouse. I was using PC Companion and not SEUS. Download and use SEUS and the update will be installed.

Good times.

375 wunderloaf November 5, 2010 at 10:19 AM

just spoke with a 3 representitive online, they said 3 dont do the x10i !!!!!! i told them i have it in my hand lol, idiots

376 Jake November 5, 2010 at 10:30 AM

Any news on the vodafone update? have tried seus amd pc companion but both say that i have the latest software!

377 wunderloaf November 5, 2010 at 10:39 AM

3 told me my x10 is upgradedable to 2.1 but dont know if and when it will be!!!!!!!!

378 TylerDurden November 5, 2010 at 10:54 AM

Hey guys!
just flashed my x10i back from the nordic 2.1 to the UK customized generic firmware

uninstalled/reinstalled SEUS

hooked up ma phone and bang update available 🙂

seems this is only for unbranded generic firmware
ill post back when he install is finished 🙂

379 Adrian November 5, 2010 at 10:59 AM

Finally Uk generic is out !!!!

380 TylerDurden November 5, 2010 at 10:59 AM

one thing i have noticed right away is that the uk one
is slightly smaller than the nordic
nordic is about 164mb i think
and the uk one is 156mb

this is for the x10i tho dont know about the mini pro’s….

381 Faraz November 5, 2010 at 11:10 AM

Android 2.1 available for xperia x10 available on O2 uk today

382 wunderloaf November 5, 2010 at 11:27 AM

any word on update from 3 network UK yet?

383 zeus November 5, 2010 at 12:03 PM

Does any1 know if the update is available for Vodafone x10 users? I dont really want to debrand my fone if i dont need to…thanks.

384 renzo November 5, 2010 at 12:31 PM

@TylerDurden
hey bud im currently on generic world 2.1 was on uk generic 1.6 how did u go about the switch back? and what code did u use in the default/build.prop ? also have you noticed much difference overall? cheers

385 TheWeedMan November 5, 2010 at 12:51 PM

Yip…can confirm UK 2.1 released (unbranded).

I recieved the notification this morning after I tried OTA update..just in from work and installing now.

386 wunderloaf November 5, 2010 at 12:57 PM

pls, any word on the 3 network upgrading thier x10 to 2.1?

387 usaidwhat November 5, 2010 at 1:18 PM

Can anyone confirm that the uk 2.1 update (O2) is now available??

I’m not having any luck getting it through PC Companion or SEUS….

Thanks….

388 Simon 'theMactivist' Royal November 5, 2010 at 1:19 PM

Hi

Did the Mini and Mini Pro get updated the same time as X10 in other countries?

Loads of people on here have reported UK X10 got 2.1 today, but no reports from Mini or Mini Pro users. My Virgin supplied unbranded/generic Mini Pro shows no update, nor does SEUS.

Getting very impatient. Come on SE, get your arse in gear and roll this out properly.

Simon

389 frustrated November 5, 2010 at 1:25 PM

Well no news for us x10 owners on the 3 network in Uk, no update as yet..come update us

390 TylerDurden November 5, 2010 at 1:29 PM

@ renzo

i used a flash batch file i found on androidforums, you just need to locate your device id
from your windows registry, and copy it to a txt file included in the files with the
flash 🙂 start the flash hook up your x10i in flash mode and it the enter key
to start the process.

you will end up with the R…016 uk, customized, generic firmware which is in turn upgradeable to 2.1 via SEUS

heres a linky 🙂

http://androidforums.com/sony-ericsson-xperia-x10/210518-guide-downgrade-your-x10i-2-1-1-6-a.html

its easier than it sounds and take only a few min to finish 🙂

391 TylerDurden November 5, 2010 at 1:38 PM

and to be honest the uk 2.1 seems a touch quicker at initilazing than the nordic 🙂
and i think there is the odd difference in the settings menu..
and! and lol the location thing works in google now, i couldnt get it to work
with the nordic one.

and the market seems hunky dorey too (angry birds is top! heard a number of peeps
goin on about it and thought id check it out lol good laugh!)

the only thing im a little disapointed in is that mediascape still doesnt have an option
to create your own playlists… i find that a bit of a bummer as i like my tunes on the go 🙂
but ive got a pspGo and a ipod shuffle, (one of the tiny ones lol) so im not with out
but i think it would be sweet to have 🙂

ive only tried on quick vid with the 720 hd res and it looks good! ill have to take the time to record something more than my bedroom lol

392 sasi November 5, 2010 at 1:40 PM

hey guys……
dont u still realize dat SE made us fools?????????????????

Still begging for the update date?

i wud like to shit on ur mama tits SE..

393 Vlad November 5, 2010 at 2:00 PM

@sasi can you specify please, which mama – Swedish or Japanese ? 🙂

394 steve November 5, 2010 at 2:06 PM

395 Vlad November 5, 2010 at 2:07 PM

396 wunderloaf November 5, 2010 at 2:10 PM

397 usaidwhat November 5, 2010 at 2:11 PM

@steve excellent!! Is your handset unlocked or a branded model (e.g. O2)?

398 chrisfack November 5, 2010 at 2:18 PM

Anyone updated with a mini yet? Im on 3 with no joy?

399 wunderloaf November 5, 2010 at 2:29 PM

@chrisfack
no joy for me, im also on 3, and on x10i but no update

400 Simon 'theMactivist' Royal November 5, 2010 at 2:57 PM

Anyone in UK updated their X10 Mini or Mini Pro officially.

There are loads of reports of X10 UK users updating today but no Mini or Mini Pro.

Simon

401 wunderloaf November 5, 2010 at 3:04 PM

@Simon
we Simon im in the UK and with an x10i but no update, i have not seen anyone with a mini or mini pro saying that they have updated either, guess we will b the last to know lol

402 Unknown November 5, 2010 at 3:11 PM

Got official UK update today via SEUS. It is much better than 1.6. My X10i is unbranded

403 Miles November 5, 2010 at 3:19 PM

Hey does anybody know when the eclair 2.1 update is coming out in south africa???
Really want it to come soon for my x10, been waiting since sunday night, but nothing.
Help really appreciated 🙂

404 Miles November 5, 2010 at 3:21 PM

how do u unbrand your phone? im on 3 network in Uk

406 r November 5, 2010 at 4:16 PM

Virgin UK got mine this morning. 2.1 is ok. Battery is getting hot. Se backup and restore lost all my contacts luckily had them sync. Notice the little page browse icon is gone used this a lot for long long pages like this one, why remove it?

407 AgentMak November 5, 2010 at 5:19 PM

waiting….

408 wunderloaf November 6, 2010 at 10:29 AM

any news on the 2.1 update for x10 on 3 network in UK?

409 Anthony November 6, 2010 at 3:29 PM

@wunderloaf

come on mate…..Tyler Durden has posted the guide 3 times to flash to UK generic and then upgrade to 2.1
http://androidforums.com/sony-ericsson-xperia-x10/210518-guide-downgrade-your-x10i-2-1-1-6-a.html
Although if youve got a 64bit PC like I have then you might have some trouble…Java 64bit throws up some errors when flashing. Even uninstalling 64bit and installing 32bit has not fixed it for me.
Gunna try it on my mums 32bit laptop.

410 tranq November 6, 2010 at 6:36 PM

anyway,want to get update through notification,not this link.how we will get it soon on 3 network…

411 Simon 'theMactivist' Royal November 6, 2010 at 10:54 PM

Yes.

My X10 Mini Pro updated tonight (UK, Virgin supplied, generic/unbranded). No problems with update and the phone is so much snappier.

No notification, checked on the phone and it told me there was an update, connected it to SEUS and update started.

New look and menus are great, a few new features, some tweaks and fixes. Continuous focus in video mode is good and works well.

Overall I am very pleased. It is too early to tell for sure but it seems as if the battery has improved.

The browser is a lot better, 3G reception seems better although it shows H instead of 3G in the top bar, wifi connects faster.

A very welcome and fantastic update.

Simon

412 phyo November 7, 2010 at 6:53 AM

SE Singapore is charging S$5.35 for android 2.1 upgrade (which is not available online in SG) at their service centres.
