X10 updateSony Ericsson has released a new (minor) update for the Xperia X10 family. The firmware has been updated to version 2.0.2.A.0.24 with Baseband version 2.0.49. There is no official changelog from the company so we can’t officially say what changes it brings. The main improvements appear to be better performance overall including Timescape and Mediascape, a new keyboard and some users are reporting louder in-call volume.

However, one big disadvantage is that you are no longer able to root the handset. The 162MB update should be available for users to download now via PC Companion or SEUS, although the update wasn’t available on our handset running Generic Nordic firmware. However, it shouldn’t be long before it hits all regions.

Thanks to all that sent this in!
