SE confirms latest Xperia X10 update is the big UXP update

by X10 on January 31, 2011

in Applications, Firmware, News

Sony EricssonSony Ericsson’s Rikard Skogberg has confirmed over at the SE Product Blog that the latest firmware update for the Xperia X10 (2.1.A.0.435) is indeed the big fabled UXP update that was due to hit the handset during Q1. At the time, this update was said to bring improvements to Timescape and Mediascape and it seems as if this is true (at least for the latter).

A comment from a member asked Rikard whether “this was the big UXP update we have been waiting on?” To which Rikard replied, “Yes the update that is starting to roll-out now is the one described in earlier comments here, I’m finalizing the details on a post around it.” There you have it, this means that this 2.1.A.0.435 firmware should indeed be hitting X10i handsets shortly.

What about X10 Mini pro?????

2 Harsha K N January 31, 2011 at 5:42 PM

Is it?? what about DLNA ? is it bundled in this update? Please confirm X10 🙂

3 X10 January 31, 2011 at 5:44 PM

No idea about DLNA as we haven’t downloaded the new firmware yet. No one has reported about DLNA functionality being included, although this could be that they haven’t looked for it…

4 Harsha K N January 31, 2011 at 5:49 PM

Thanks very much 🙂 will check. Pretty happy to get a jiffy response , after having used to SE’s lousy service ! 😉

5 amber January 31, 2011 at 5:51 PM

something is better than nothing…..thanks se :O

6 Andres January 31, 2011 at 5:51 PM

This also means, it is the last big update for x10 range and now we can only see some minor bug fixes in future if any..

7 ROB January 31, 2011 at 6:01 PM

Well the X10 has reached EOL and this will be as good as it gets. It was good while it lasted. I shall use my X10 for as long as I can. Overall I am pleased with the phone. I just want the ability to tweet from the phone (im not talking timescape or phonebook) and that DLNA tech that is hidden somewhere inside.

How about that Motorola Atrix?

8 swapniladsure January 31, 2011 at 6:17 PM

hey guys
can anybody tell me what is DLNA??.
and i happy with XDA developer guys..they are working hard also they got success in 2.2 custom rom…they made semi stable 2.2 froyo rom…
i am sure they will develop froyo fully stable rom soon…
thanks xda developers

9 Martynas January 31, 2011 at 6:34 PM

Well when we demanded multitouch we got it or atleast are going to get it, so if we demand 2.2 who knows.

10 dave January 31, 2011 at 6:40 PM

As I said in the other article comments, just updated my UK network free mini pro. Lost root but got it back with superoneclick. Can’t see any improvements at all yet. If anything is is slightly slower.

as Louis CK says: ”fuck this piece of shit phone (that magically lets us talk to anyone anywhere in the world and gives us the sum of human knowledge at our finger tips)”.

if anyone seriously complains about not having froyo or multi touch etc then they need some serious perspective. At least I have a warm bed to sleep in and a full stomach.

11 marco January 31, 2011 at 7:03 PM

Wait Se did says last word jet there is still one update left from 25 jan so lets have a look what is there about Dlan

12 Leon January 31, 2011 at 7:19 PM

I have this update on my handset now.

Mediascape has changed a lot (Lots of new options but all useless to be honest). Now as soon as you put two fingers on the screen in Mediascape image gallery, it detects Pinch zoom.

Timescape is exactly the same with the addition of Moxier main.

Other than that, the updates adds full Arabic/Persian support.

Nothing else I see.

13 x10-290 January 31, 2011 at 7:31 PM

I can’t update or even connect my phone to ANY PC. If you think you can help, post here:

14 Zaryab January 31, 2011 at 7:43 PM

update is avalble for generic world 1232-9897 😀

15 andrei January 31, 2011 at 7:50 PM

FUCK you SE!! All x10 users(including me) have 16M colors CAPABLE lcd displays. you give us worthless 65k color crap? WE paid for a phone that would have FUNCTIONS, not “CAPABLE OF(…)” . WHERE is the DLNA? and… last, but not least… HOW the fuck … do you have a DEV TEAM working? what kind of DEV team is that? you hired JANITORS, or something? the DUALTOUCH sucks, not because of its functionality, but because of the STUPID AXIS PROBLEM. WE all know this is a god damn trick. AXIS works just fine. NOW u wrote a fucking code, and when the fingers intersect the X/Y axis, it all goes nuts(left goes to right and vice-versa). EVEN HUAWEI has BETTER phones than yours. THEY ALREADY HAVE GINGERBREAD + MULTITOUCH(not DT) + other functions, and their phones are half, if not one quarter the price we paid on this worthless piece of CRAP.

check ..a guy on XDA has uploaded the buil.prop tooo

20 andrei January 31, 2011 at 7:58 PM

and SE won’t release the bootloader because the devs from XDA would make this phone 100 times better than it is. They just cover shit up with “2.1 is far better than any vanilla 2.2” O, rly? with all ur timescape + mediascape crap ? This phone is FULL of unnecessary apps… like Moxier, timescape, mediscape(i know we can remove them), but other companies have NO preinstalled apps. Iphone has 512 mb of ram, we have 380 or so, and we could use only 200, from which 30-40 are used by THEIR stupid and worthless apps. ALL IN ALL, they deliver “UXP” update, like anyone would need an update on apps like mediascape(poweramp is 10 times better + that it has an eq), or timescape (why not use facebook app + other shitty socialising apps? i don’t even use socialising sites.) . THIS is just too much. THEY ARE MOCKING US. we don’t need 2.1, 2.2 or UXP upgrades anymore.
2.3 or bootloader. this is what we want. our phone is 2009ish, already… SRY FOR this 2 posts. i`m pissed. it’s outrageous.

21 andrei January 31, 2011 at 8:01 PM

@ zaryab
i know that. it’s just too much, for me. i can’t take it anymore. they need to release the bootloader or something, because the AOSP gingerbread works on 2.1 kernel. this slows devs down to the point where we’ll have to use apps to use OUR phones. i just want everything to be alright. and i want to use my phone, not stay untill SE would finally release the bootloader or something, because they won’t do that.

22 andrei January 31, 2011 at 8:05 PM

@zaryab, again… that guy posted the update for x10A, not x10 i. (not available yet. ):)

23 zaryab January 31, 2011 at 8:05 PM

@andrei
The fact is these moron developerss in the SE arent capable of doing nythingg …but shit
nd this company damn care we spent above 500 euros for this piece offf _________
they wont open the bootloader …. they noe.. if once its open .. ahahah softwares lyk SEUS nd pc companion are usless 😀 no one would use dem to install their so called crapppy updates 😀

we are still waiting that fu..ing dual touch. when we can get that updating. FINLAND

33 NZ January 31, 2011 at 8:46 PM

Why do people continue asking for 2.2?
2.3 is out there, and all the new Xperia line will have it… is it so hard for them to pack the appropriate drivers and give it to us?

ohhh. wait a minute… the arc has almost identical specs as the X10… ths means that by no means they will make an Gingerbread release for the X10, because it can be as good as the arc 😉 (or at least close enough…)

34 Simon Royal January 31, 2011 at 8:52 PM

Hi. Will this be available for the Mini Pro and is it a minor update or will it wipe my phone completely.

35 Hello its me January 31, 2011 at 8:53 PM

Dear X10, will you please IP ban this fucking dumb moron that goes by the name andrei. He doesn’t know what he’s taking about, crys way to much over his own mistake and let’s be honest, he has serious life issues and shouldn’t even be allowed to live on this planet we call Earth. Thank you.

36 andrei January 31, 2011 at 8:56 PM

@NZ
no, man.. don’t u see? x10 has SCREEN problems, has FORCED multitouch and it doesn’t have HDMI connector(at least that’s how a SE employee would trick you) . Well, x10 is(was, actually) just a marketing tool. x10=arc – hdmi – 32 gb card(they sold it just with an 8 gb micro sd card) – (?) .

37 andrei January 31, 2011 at 9:01 PM

@Hello its me.
sry man 🙂 i`ll leave this forum anyways. wtf. i didn’t mean to say anything offensive. i was just pissed off. + it’s not my mistake that SE lies all the time. and believe me, i do know what i`m talking about. Sry for the misunderstanding. You don’t know me, but you insult me. “dumb moron”? wait wait wait, who are you to call me a dumb moron? i just expressed my opinion, like everyone else. I didn’t ask for someone to read the stuff i wrote. i just wrote it. i was seriously pissed because of SE. and NO, i don’t have any life issues at all. and u’re not god or any diety do decide if i`m allowed or not to live “on this planet we call Earth” . You have problems(maybe u work for SE) haha.

38 NZ January 31, 2011 at 9:01 PM

@andrei
exactly…. and this is actually how Apple has a better marketing… They would release the latest upgrade… but you wouldn’t be able to have… video editing let’s say, because they new hardware is required…
thus the Apple fanboys are happy…

39 annoyed user January 31, 2011 at 9:03 PM

Where’s the fuking update? they talk too much

40 andrei January 31, 2011 at 9:06 PM

@NZ
Yes, SE provides great mobilephones with great hardware specs. but these phones will have their SW outdated one day or another (look @ x10 family). IMO, x10>Iphone 4 not only because of android, but because of hardware specs too.

41 andrei January 31, 2011 at 9:08 PM

@annoyed user
u can flash it from here:

Moxier Mail under TimeScape is Great but no Pictures like Facebook & Messaging???
MediaScape now has the following functionality
Landscape
Playlist (Add to Playlist)
Library / Player Buttons
Bigger Icons
Pictures (one finger zoom)
DLNA – Could not find it on the Market. I thought it was coming with this update. Anyone know what the deal is.

44 Emijomo89 January 31, 2011 at 10:08 PM

so i just updated my x10 mini, cause it told me to.. whats new in it? i havent seen anything new.

45 Sparks January 31, 2011 at 10:14 PM

Why are people moaning about Moxier? It’s a superb app. You should pay for it really but it’s bundled. And it keeps all my work stuff completely seperate from personal but can sync if you want..

46 Ahmad January 31, 2011 at 10:35 PM

Just got the update through PC companion
for those in the Arab world, finally Arabic language is included. The sad thing though no Android Market, they put Slide Me SAM and its made for Sony Ericsson!!! don’t know if google told them not to include market or the phone can not support market???? thank god for applanet

49 Rene January 31, 2011 at 10:46 PM

@Larry – Buy your phone unlocked and you wont have the issue with getting the latest updates when they are made available. I don’t think AT&T will update the device from 1.6.

50 Larry January 31, 2011 at 11:03 PM

My x10a was 99 bucks with the account from AT&T. I’ve tried every “root” there is out there, nothing seems to root AT&T x10a. Everyone says “try this root, it works…” not on an AT&T X10a…

55 Pak Ya February 1, 2011 at 2:44 AM

Rikard just too much talk.
No improvement to x10.
Now, they fully focused on new generation of xperias.
It’s a waste giving us update.
Finally, X10 will abandoned with outdated software.
It’s true, they always fucking GAY.

56 Annoyed user February 1, 2011 at 2:48 AM

@andrei cheers, but I already had beta 3 for about a month,now installed crappy SE again,I need to send it to repair,signal issues

57 Anoyed user February 1, 2011 at 2:52 AM

@Aj, I had beta 3 for about a month and used to score Quadrant around 1.5-1.7 (on top of the list) and Linpack about 34.500-35.100 as maximum. very smooth..Just went back to SE 2.1 and get ‘7’ on linpack, takes ages…

58 Rene February 1, 2011 at 3:05 AM

@Aj – Let me know how to post the score of quadrant benchmark and I will

59 DerekNobuyuki February 1, 2011 at 3:07 AM

Most of that was not in the latest B firmware for the X10 SO-01b .

Does this mean we should expect yet another update in Q1?

60 Rene February 1, 2011 at 3:21 AM

@Aj – Quadrant Benchmark Score = 489
MediaScape not faster but looks better and some additional functionality
No Widgets for TS & MS
No Lag w/Live Wallpapers

61 agentJBM February 1, 2011 at 3:58 AM

@ Larry,
Where have you been? Get with the program, lol. Don’t you know about xda-developers.com? Unbrand your X10a and free yourself from AT&T blocking you from truly using your X10a. Unbrand and update to 2.1 and root easy as pie.

Will Dual Touch work on Angry Birds to zoom-in?

64 sergio February 1, 2011 at 5:03 AM

anyone who wants the multitouch and one finger zoom , you must use superoneclick and then flash tools with the latest firmware

I just updated my x10i thru FLASHTOOL using xda medthod. Model Name changed to X10a. Did not try to test it yet. I’ll go back to x10i anytime SE release the update.

67 Larry February 1, 2011 at 6:50 AM

@agentJBM

I have tried EVERYTHING to debrand and root this phone, absolutely NOTHING works !

68 Topher February 1, 2011 at 7:12 AM

@Larry,

Root your phone here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=906248. Download and use the latest version. If not, try the other.

After Rooting, download the Flashtool here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=10738467. Then download the latest FW with UXP and DT update here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=6514692&postcount=2

After downloading the 2 files. Extract the content of the latest FW.
Run the Flashtool.
Navigate to “firmware” folder.
Copy and paste the extracted FW to the “firmware folder”.
Run or double click the X10FLASHtool.
Click connect and choose x10.
It will prompt you to connect your phones to PC by Flashmode (off mode connecting while pressing the back key).
Continue to hold the back key until flashtool tells you that your phone is connected.
If connected, click the flash key and wait to finish.

You’ll have the new FW in no time.

69 AlohaDylan February 1, 2011 at 8:44 AM

I want my 2.2! (and 2.3 and whatever will float on this device….) I think the Arc looks great…but I’m in a contract situation you see….and so I’d like to get the most of this device. My Timescape/Mediascpape bundled 2.1 keeps getting bogged down…:Look, SE I love my phone…just give us the software key. We paid the big yen (or dollars, or euros, or whatever) and we feel hurt that you won’t give us the best that your engineers are capable of. Tell you what…just between you and me….if this is an Arc competion thing….why not just leave the bootloader out in the street one night…no questions asked…let it fall off the back of a truck….we’ll take the rest from there….No one has to get hurt. Hard to show off my cool phone when I try to show someone some pics…and we wait and wait for the Gallery app to open…then we wait for the images to populate…then wait for the scroll….my iPhone friends tap and app and are lazily flipping through awesome pics in smooth seamless transition….I try to take a photo and I sit and wait for eons for the camera to start. Take one photo and wait another eon until I can take the next pic. Even waiting for the dialer recently…this is a really poor showing. I think I’ll go back to my flip phone. At least that was responsive..push a button, instant gratification…Argh….I look like a Mac vs. Windows goon. Come on. It doesn’t have to be this way. SE…listen to the plea. Please.

70 AlohaDylan February 1, 2011 at 8:57 AM

@ Derek
I was rooting around the DoCoMo site looking for info to see if we already received–site only lists the 19 Jan update…. Thanks for the confirmation. Do you have emoji capability on your phone?

71 andi February 1, 2011 at 9:01 AM

Anybody from Middle East (Saudi Arabia) got this UXP update? If not available yet, hopefully next week.

72 Topher February 1, 2011 at 9:14 AM

@Andi,

Im in Abu Dhabi. I did not wait for the SE update. I updated my device thru FLASHTOOL using XDA method. It works fine. UI seems to be a little smoother than the previous FW. No time yet to do full testing since Im at work. I’ll do the “roadtest” later on.

73 appreciate February 1, 2011 at 10:33 AM

@NZ i agree these cheap scates want everything on the x10 they dont understand that a business needs to make money sony ericcssoon is recovering from a serious downfall inprofit and these idiots think they are going to sit there and try and update a year old phone with every new update

These people need to wake up and shut up idiots

74 Topher February 1, 2011 at 10:51 AM

@Ahmad,

Im in Abu Dhabi an having the android market on my device since im using Global Firmware. You can do the same to your phone. Its a boring world up there without the Android Market.

75 Jamie R February 1, 2011 at 10:57 AM

Right this is strange, as I said above, the hiden menu shows me to be on 1227-4612, but Quadrant system info show me as beeing on 1232-9897.

How can I be on both? lol
This is confusing now 😛
Maybe ill just download a fresh global generic firmware from the net and flash that way to be sure I have the right one.

76 AlohDylan February 1, 2011 at 11:04 AM

@ Appreciate
Hmm… How about less is more? Eliminate the apps that slow down the phone (Timescape/Meidascape), let Google update the O/S, and let SE make money with new phones. I’m all for SE making money. I gave them my vote of confidence by giving SE a lot of my own cash. If SE won’t update the phone, that is fine with me…as long as they let the developers in! (through offering the bootloader). The phone is just hardware. This is a new paradigm and software updates are part of that paradigm. If the Arc is better, there should be no qualms from SE about giving the “old” X10 a new lease on life. What say you?

77 Al February 1, 2011 at 11:17 AM

@Jamie R
In service menu, under software info dont look at the numbers under phone software or file system or nething else. The number u r looking for is under Customization version on the software info page. There u will c 1232-9897 which is global version. N no u dont have 2 different versions, the other no.s indicate the kit compiled for the Generic Global software. Don’t worry, u don’t need to flash to global again, wait until they release it or simply flash it to the latest version instead if u r going to flash ur fone neway and end ur wait ;-).
Hope this helps.

78 tiborh February 1, 2011 at 11:35 AM

@Jamie R

that is your phone software version, right? NOT your SI !

79 TylerDurden February 1, 2011 at 11:37 AM

So then, UK generic global update…

Anybody? 🙂

80 Jamie R February 1, 2011 at 11:41 AM

@ Al thanks for clearing that up for me, yes it does show 1232-9897 under Customization Version.
Now just to wait for the X10i firmware to be released, dont fancy flashing x10a firmware even though people are saying it works fine.

81 Ahmad February 1, 2011 at 11:42 AM

@Topher

thanks, tried to manually install market, but it kept force closing. Im using applanet for the time bieng. Im thinking of getting a new phone..since this is the last update on this phone, going to wait until 2.3 hits the market here.

82 Topher February 1, 2011 at 12:28 PM

@Ahmad,

No need to manually intall it. You can debrand ur phone to other FW. Its fast and easy using FLASHTOOL. I debranded also some of my friend’s phone to have android market and it is working well. Before I was using the Nordic FW. After I came to know this update, waited for XDA to extract the newest GLOBAL FW. Check their site and Viola! I started flashing my phone and it work fine.

@MobileSmug good morning 🙂

85 agentJBM February 1, 2011 at 5:33 PM

@Larry,
There is another, easier way, but it costs $10. It is what I did, because I wasn’t sure about the firmware xda was using during the update fiasco in November. Go to http://WWW.FASTGSM.COM. It is very easy to do. I used the regional generic X10a Brazil 1234 – 4836 firmware. It has google Voice Search included. However, most of the stuff on xda revolves around the global/world generic X10a 1234 – 4820, which I am now using. If they now have global/world generic X10a use it. It may not be this new update version, but when you are done at fastGSM.com, you can then update via SEUS. Then use super one click root method on xda to root.

Hey, When will this update hit the U.S. AT&T Xperia x10s? I’m still in the stock 1.6 (mostly because of the AT&T Death Hold on it). And this dual touch, faster cpu, longer battery, 5 screen, hd video update looks really good right now. I use the x10a in the U.S.

87 fried egg February 1, 2011 at 9:10 PM

SE are the worst company in the world. they take months to basically do nothing.
no one in the right minds will buy the arc, its clearly out of date already. you get the feeling SE know at the mobile conference the rest will produce far better phones to show off so they didnt want to show their phone off and get no goodf publicity at all.

my x10 has been fine. but i didnt pay for a “fine” phone, i paid for “the ultimate android phone” as SE still brand it. it hasnt been that since the day after it was first announced. i feel so cheated.

and its not just sony ericsson i will avoid, its anything by sony too.

88 big island February 2, 2011 at 1:23 AM

Got tired of waiting for at&t to update. Went to xda and now have 2.1. Way better!!!

I’ve got the update (Saudi Arabia) last night. It’s getting even more and more faster particularly the Timescape and Mediascape. The one-finger zoom is quite nice in Mediascape and the pinch to zoom in the internet browser is wonderful. I was only a bit disappointed why the animination opening the Mediascape (music / video / photo) is gone. I love the animation before. One thing I cannot update is the PlayNow (Get Music Info). After downloading to 13 music update (275 in total), it stuck there and nothing happend. Anybody got this problem updating the PlayNow?

I got my update. I live in sweden.

Got the update today, Nordic unbranded X10. Moxier even better and Mediascape seems more responsive. Pinch zoom in Opera Mobile, love it!!

Anyone have any idea as to when the global generic or uk generic firmware will be released for the X10i? XDA have one listed here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=920746 under X10i but it appears to be the same as the X10A version.

101 Stephen February 4, 2011 at 6:49 PM

Can anyone please let me know if this “dual touch cum big UXP update” has been released in india (global firmware x10i) ??….Please…I have been checking if the update has come almost a million times a day but nothing seems to have been released here yet…thanks a lot…

104 Rajesh Kumar February 5, 2011 at 8:07 PM

I have…1234-8465…X10i, in india and i got the update before yesterday. dual touch is working, better image resolution while calling contacts with image which was poor after initial 2.1 update, Animation in mediascape is removed and is faster than earlier update, however dual touch seems buggy while trying over any playing video or viewing images. overall happy with the update

105 Madhav February 6, 2011 at 6:08 AM

@Rajesh – thanks for the info but can you also let me know as to where u got the update..was it OTA or through PC companion or through SEUS??…and how did you tell me that version..??….is it the phone software version, S1 boot version, ETS software version or the customization version??…(these versions are seen after pressing home>back>back>home>back>home>home>back on the lock screen)…thanks a lot…

106 Rajesh Kumar February 6, 2011 at 6:59 AM

@Madhav , Yes the number I shared is customization version, i changed to nordic region for initial 2.1 update and got this latest update through PC companion.

112 andi February 7, 2011 at 1:03 PM

@becca
This is really what I really wanted Sonyericsson to fix because volume is truly crap. In fact, I’ve got only 3 wishes to SE (in particular order) for X10 if they will not give us 2.2 Froyo (available at XDA Developers though):
1. Volume (all users around the world are really complaining)
2. 16M colors (since hardware is capable to make Timescape “spline” more readable)
3. Equalizer (I don’t like to use third-party app as built-in is far better)

113 andi February 7, 2011 at 1:05 PM

It’s horrible! Why SE has removed the animation in Mediascape and now it looks very ordinary UI. Instead SE is giving us more beautiful UI through firmware updates, they are removing those nice eye-candy features on UI everytime they issue a new firmware update. Those original UI of X10 makes this unit beautiful and unique but look what they did. I’m afraid next firmware update the animation in Timescape is also gone, it’s B.S. SE should return back the animation in Mediascape. What blog we can post all our complains to SE?

114 goku February 7, 2011 at 1:26 PM

new update added a few wallpapers….i would be happy if I got some extra live wallpapers…anyways speed improved

115 koh February 8, 2011 at 7:57 AM

Anyone knows if this update works with Swype or Shapewriter? Does the dual-touch or one-finger zoom break these “swiping” keyboards? If so, is there a mode to turn zoom/dual-touch off?

116 Madhav February 8, 2011 at 3:28 PM

Can anyone please tell me if this dual touch update is being released country wise or is it being released batch wise or something like that…askin coz i am from india and while many of my fellow country men have got the dual touch update i still havent received any notification neither OTA nor SEUS nor PC companion (and yes!!! i do have the latest versions of both the SEUS and the PC companion)…

132 Bryan February 14, 2011 at 4:03 AM

I’m tired of the minor updates. It’s either you give us the current android software or we’ll sell our x10.

I got the update for Rogers today xD…. u must check it

142 Cynthia February 15, 2011 at 8:06 PM

@bob
i know this isn’t an official site, all I’m asking is if anyone knows if at&t is going to give us americans an update. So take a chill pill and learn how to spell for god’s sake.

143 Its me you know February 15, 2011 at 8:16 PM

@ Cynthia, take a chill pill. Not even most mother fuckers int he UK have the update and are shit hole country got the phone before you did. Would be lovely if Sony made your ass wait untill you’ve paid of some of your $14 trillion debts.

144 Cynthia February 15, 2011 at 10:50 PM

@its me you know

sony doesn’t have to make us wait for shit, android is an american software and you’re rocking it, idiot.

145 LoL LoL February 15, 2011 at 11:41 PM

@ Cynthia, Google is world wide. The android software isn’t just built by Americans. Just because two American fags invented Google, doesn’t make it American. The phone was here first therefor should be updated here first. Well your country didn’t have the phone, we was supporting the little Japanese mobile 🙂

146 Cynthia February 16, 2011 at 12:55 AM

lol lol you’re also an idiot. the mercedes benz we drive in the U.S. come in english manual, we see the speedometer in mph not kph. that doesn’t make the car american or doesn’t make it any less german. also if having the x10 first than us is you’re pride then i pitty you my friend.

147 J-ONE February 16, 2011 at 6:55 AM

@K3V1N-XD

Hey bud, did you do the update via SEUS or PC Companion? Did you get the OTA on it? Im in Winnipeg and have been all too patient on waiting, hence why im asking.

151 jajaja February 16, 2011 at 9:56 PM

I wanted to let people from Canada (Ontario at least, on rogers network) know that there is now a ‘new software update’ through the PC companion software today 🙂
I have to say that mediascape is a quite welcome change after playing with my phone for 5 mins– the lack of animations dont bug me. FINALLY I CAN MAKE SOME PLAYLISTS ON THE GO. I just dont like the album art going over the playing controls :/
Theres also some new apps called postcard and neoreader. Dualtouch works well on the browser, but the keyboard has only really changed its color scheme (grey, more like htc) :/
I hope that helps (I understand the above was a jumble, im just sadly very excited)!

152 jajaja February 16, 2011 at 10:04 PM

Oh, and some more details on the mediascape:
theres a really cool one finger fast forward/rewind option (when playing music), the one finger zoom in mediascape is nice too (though no multitouch implementations there, sorry), horizontal mode is implemented everywhere now too.
Seems slightly faster, but nothing too extraordinary. 😛

Plz help anybody how can i get it

156 jajaja February 17, 2011 at 8:54 PM

Try finding the setting in pc companion that searches for an update when your phone is plugged in. Make sure you press mount or usb connected when you plug your phone into the computer. If that doesnt work, simply reinstall the pc companion so you make sure its up to date. I hope that helps! 🙂

157 Jessica February 18, 2011 at 9:05 AM

I dcided I was tired of waiting for the update. I m on the orange network in the uk. yesterday I rooted and flshed my phone with the latest dual touch firmware and installed jit. I also deleted some of the useless apps like office. now my phone runs super fast! and has dual touch. well done xda, you should be working at SE getting paid instead of those chumps there now.

158 Liam February 18, 2011 at 7:22 PM

I’ve restarted my phone numerous times and have made sure i have enough space for the download etc. but this message still persists.

You know what I noticed.. after the update.. When I send a picture message, or someone sends me a picture message. If I wanna view the picture, it asks me to complete action using Mediascape or other photoviewer apps. If I open it with mediascape, nothing happens.. before that update.. I can view picture message using mediascape now it doesn’t work anymore.. i don’t know if my phone has a problem or is it the same as everyone?

169 mahdi June 14, 2011 at 5:52 PM

I have a question.
Im going to buy a Xperia X10 in Germany in the summer. Now i want to know, will this mobile already have the update 2.1 installed, or do i need to upgrade it manually?

I would be very very thankful for any piece of answer…

greetings, Mahdi

170 X10 Issues June 15, 2011 at 4:07 PM

Soon as my contracts up, I’m moving to HTC or Samsung. I’ve had loadsa issues with my handset and I don’t really think there’s an awful lot goin for it apart from it lookin kinda nice and the camera (although most phones have mad high spec cams now anyway) and the one thing that’s making me not jus throw it as faar away from me as I can, is the immense sat nav system, which to be fair is the best sat nav I’ve used, but that’s also probly avail for other phones (Google Navigate), which has slowed down somewhat since the update actually :/. The last update came and the pinch zoom, attempt at matchin Apple was a massive fail, barely works. The screen is already really quite poor for a modern touchscreen as it’s too sensitive for general use, then not sensitive enough when you need it to be for stuff like games etc. The addition to make playlists was like a God send, but then almost all other phones with mp3 I’d had prior, had playlist making as standard, so another poor move by SE. To me, the Xperia 10 was kinda like Windows ME……..it’s shit and pointless, but its paved the way for the newer Xperia range, which hopefully are more stable builds and don’t force close the shit out of everythin for giggles. It’s a bit of a joke when ur phone repeatedly force closes the MESSAGING function. Lol. Also, a number of u guys here complained about ‘useless apps’, which I completely agree with, ALL the Moxier stuff is durge and I find it quite annoying that it’s difficult if not impossible to get rid of (haven’t really been that bothered to look).

@mahdi if you haven’t already, I recommend not buying, getting on contract or even considering the X10, it’s dog poo. Maybs the new Xperia lines are winners, but this one certainly isn’t. I recommend HTC, Samsung, or even a BB, they’re fairly reliable as far as a phone goes these days.

171 X10 Issues June 15, 2011 at 4:10 PM

@mahdi also dude, it probs will come with 2.1 on by now, if not, it’s fairly easy to update, so you shud be fine. 🙂 But like I said, I strongly recommend somethin else, it’s not a good phone.

172 Georgina Mendelsohn January 18, 2013 at 12:14 AM

173 Bob Simon December 17, 2015 at 4:29 AM

You know what I detected.. once the update.. after I send an image message, or somebody sends Maine an image message. If I wanna read the image, it asks Maine to complete action mistreatment Mediascape or alternative photoviewer apps. If I open it with mediascape, nothing happens.. before that update.. I will read image message mistreatment mediascape currently it doesn’t work any longer.. i don’t understand if my phone encompasses a drawback or is it constant as everyone?
