Sony Ericsson reveals what to expect with X10 Gingerbread update

by X10 on July 26, 2011

in Firmware, News

Sony EricssonThe Sony Ericsson support pages around the globe are being updated as we speak to give Xperia X10 users an idea of what to expect with the forthcoming Android 2.3 Gingerbread update. This does not mean that the update has begun rolling out as reported by a number of sites, but it does mean that it is perhaps imminent.

The update will be carried out through PC Companion only (not OTA) and will bring new features such as Facebook inside Xperia, equalizer, photo widget, app tray sorting (as seen in the Xperia arc) and other native Android features including Wi-Fi hotspot and Flash video.

The update page also confirms that everything saved in the phone memory will be wiped, therefore make sure your phone is backed up through a third-party app. Do not use Sony Ericsson’s ‘Backup and Restore’ app as this will be overwritten. A number of other apps will also be removed including Moxier Exchange, Creatouch, Neoreader, Quadrapop and Mediascape. Hopefully the Gingerbread X10 update will be landing very soon.

no news!

4 X10i user July 26, 2011 at 4:29 PM

Good to hear the update…
But is there an update in the Bluetooth as well because my MW600 doesn’t read the track played by the music player and doesn’t show the contact name…

Is there a change by this update…

5 Jeormy July 26, 2011 at 4:32 PM

Can’t wait for iT..

6 Pablo Mariano July 26, 2011 at 4:38 PM

Some one knows if the music player will be able to play FLAC´s files? Cheers

7 skrba July 26, 2011 at 4:39 PM

hurry up SE!!

8 Pablo Mariano July 26, 2011 at 4:42 PM
9 Pak ya July 26, 2011 at 4:44 PM

i think you shall create a quiz as before regarding this update.

10 xzzzPeria fan .. July 26, 2011 at 4:44 PM

exciting news from Pablo, rest of the world should not be waiting too long now ..

11 Gingerbreadhungry July 26, 2011 at 4:45 PM

Which 3rd party backup app is advisable?

12 gaga July 26, 2011 at 4:51 PM


13 bob July 26, 2011 at 4:53 PM

Wont all of the downloaded apps be lost after the update? I have never tried but is it possible to back up data and apps through pc companion?

14 Gingerbreadhungry July 26, 2011 at 4:53 PM

Pablo’s news is just a spanish translation of what you have here. No word said about it being ACTUALLY launched in Italy.

15 andrei July 26, 2011 at 5:03 PM

so…the update begins today in italy, and i think we will have it too very soon (generic phones).

16 Hannah July 26, 2011 at 5:14 PM

I already have this update thanks to XDA, and I was slightly disappointed with the Facebook Inside Xperia features, they’re pretty limited. I can like a song on Facebook, but… it doesn’t show up on Facebook. Is it visible only to everyone else that has FiX? If so, what’s the point then?

17 Gingerbreadhungry July 26, 2011 at 5:32 PM

@gaga: thx dude

18 Justin July 26, 2011 at 5:33 PM

@Hannah, where is the thread located on XDA?

19 andrei July 26, 2011 at 5:34 PM

There is no thread. The update wasn’t rolled out yet.

20 Samurai Japan July 26, 2011 at 5:38 PM

please update for Ntt-docomo SO-01B ver.

21 Justin July 26, 2011 at 5:41 PM

@andrei so then Hannah is a LIAR!? come one ppl, this is teh internets, serious business goin on here

22 Vatz July 26, 2011 at 5:49 PM

I couldn´t care less about the included apps like facebook inside or the equalizer. People, carriers or companies seem to forget that they’re dealing with Android and that it is very customizable; I have had equalizer in my music player for months. I only care about the Android version and from then I can do whatever I like.

@X10i user
I’m on the same boat here, but there’s a thread over XDA where they talk about the song info with the MW600, it seems to work on Gingerbread but only with third party apps.

Here is the thread (in the interesting page):

23 adeceku July 26, 2011 at 6:22 PM

Fuck yeah!!! they will remove the operators shit!!!

24 David July 26, 2011 at 6:38 PM

I have gingerbread!! I am eating it right now!! Yumi!!!

25 andrei July 26, 2011 at 6:39 PM

@ Justin
Wtf… maybe she has AOSP from xda, not the OFFICIAL update.

26 Hannah July 26, 2011 at 6:44 PM

Well I am VIP and i have allready the Update, yes thats right, i have FROYO!!!

27 leartoread July 26, 2011 at 6:45 PM

@Justin Learn to read ! He did not say he had the official update from SE

28 andrei July 26, 2011 at 6:48 PM

@ Hannah
” I already have this update thanks to XDA, ” , ” Well I am VIP and i have allready the Update, yes thats right, i have FROYO! ” . Wth.. you already have gingerbread from xda because you are VIP and already have froyo. Go back into the closet, troll !

29 Kyrsä July 26, 2011 at 6:48 PM

Where is a PC Companion 2.0 for MAC??????

30 Bryen July 26, 2011 at 6:50 PM

It say’s on the GB site it’s available now….. but it’s not – tried SEUS and Companion – It was like this last time, took three days to get up and running!! SE love to tease

31 Damo July 26, 2011 at 6:51 PM

YESS!!!!!! all shite apps removed yesss my dream came true!!!! only disappointed because timescape is still there..

Hannah how come you have Froyo? what are you talking about?

32 Fat Mother Fucker July 26, 2011 at 6:56 PM

Nobody cares who has the crappy version XDA released. The day they make a perfect working rom will be the day I inherit bill gates money. Installing a update sony hasn’t released yet is just inpatient and pathetic. I did it once and never again. I’ll stick to sonys official updates.

33 DrxzEEh July 26, 2011 at 7:03 PM

Wont install it anyway before xda has the rom finished and rooted.

34 Deepesh July 26, 2011 at 7:04 PM

I dont utdstd the need of operators to be involved in rolling out the update worldwide ……..!!!
I m frm India …
When i ll get the update…………
official site shows , Android 2.3.3. is out n can be updated depending on generic kits or watever………
man i cant wait anymore ……….

35 Hannah (the FAKE one) July 26, 2011 at 7:04 PM

I am not the real Hannah otherwise i would be BLUE XD

36 Damo July 26, 2011 at 7:16 PM

Hey I wonder if you backup your apps and then you restore them in gingerbread, they might force close? Can anyone reccomend a free backup app? Cheers.

37 gaga July 26, 2011 at 7:21 PM

last time: mybackup – for free and rooted/unrooted phones!

38 Johan July 26, 2011 at 7:26 PM

Equalizer – finally!!!

39 seus July 26, 2011 at 7:57 PM

is it out release!!!

40 toche July 26, 2011 at 7:58 PM

Nothin on xda……stil waitin…

41 Connor July 26, 2011 at 8:06 PM

Can someone clarify to me?
I have an Orange Sim-only Xperia X10.
Will I be able to receive the update? Or will I have to ‘Root’ it? Or whatever?

42 Marcelo Rodrigues July 26, 2011 at 8:10 PM

Hey @Fat Mother Fucker, why don’t you get yourself killed? C’mon, you really know nothing about custom roms… Did you heard about FreeX10 Beta 4? It can be a Beta, but works fine on that shit (X10) with almost every function of Froyo. The only crap on that Beta is the tethering, but, download a crapy PDANet and have that shit (X10) fully working. Scr3w you.

43 boob July 26, 2011 at 8:13 PM

This release is out!!!!!!! in China!!!!!

44 yeong yee yon July 26, 2011 at 8:24 PM

in china, released?? evidence pls..

45 Son Goku July 26, 2011 at 8:34 PM

hey guys,
could someone tell me whats a good back up app to use?? (im currently not rooted)
thanks in advance.

oh one more Q, if we update to the official 2.3.3 can we then root it later on??

46 asdf July 26, 2011 at 8:34 PM

The warning about not using their own backup app just confirms my opinion of just how bad Sony Ericsson’s software development teams are. Quite incredible.

47 luigi July 26, 2011 at 8:38 PM

In spain is not released yet (vodacrapyphone) :/ still waiting.

48 gaga July 26, 2011 at 8:49 PM

can u proof it pls’!!!!??!!

49 BigD July 26, 2011 at 8:49 PM

I had a taste of Gingerbread with my Xperia neo. It’s awesome. Glad it’s coming to my Xperia x10. an awesome phone with an amazing update.
There is just one thing I don’t like. the music player. It kept the “infinity button which let’s you search for online media, which is awesome, I hope that doesn’t change or remove it.
But it still doesn’t have a lockscreen player/widget, for easy access to change tracks. It don’t have the repeat/shuffle, which also sucks because I wanna play a song over again, or randomly shuffle around my playlist. I hope SE can fix that, on all Xperia in a later small update.

50 Mustafa July 26, 2011 at 8:52 PM

@boob …can u show us the proof plzz ?

51 Rune Danmark July 26, 2011 at 8:59 PM

55 omer July 26, 2011 at 9:20 PM

no update yet in Turkey…

56 TylerDurden July 26, 2011 at 9:45 PM

Oh the excitement of waiting for an update lol and just to keep in line with the piss taking, I’ve downloaded 75% of the new gingerbread update, and I’ve cum on Hannah and the fake Hannahs faces, while recording it in 720p, then when the update is done I’m gonna use my new teathering to upload it to YouTube, then I’m gonna set my x10 to vibrate and get them both to play with my gingerbread if you know what I mean! Lol

I don’t normally take the piss like this, but I’m feeling a bit left out lol

Free x10 ftw! Lol

57 Penis July 26, 2011 at 9:46 PM

I think what it says on the support site is just a decoy to get more time for se to setup everything else

58 Adrian July 26, 2011 at 10:00 PM

YAY! Availble now in Sweden. Using 3 if it matters. Have to backup some stuff first and and think I want for some reports first! WOW!

82 Brian July 26, 2011 at 11:42 PM

@Italy Boy
Seriously? Or is this more bullshit from more idiots? Everyone needs to quit with the useless comments, there not even kinda funny! You sound like a bunch of retards.

83 Quarryninja July 26, 2011 at 11:44 PM

I just use “SMS backup +” Its free and you can backup and restore sms’s and call logs directly to gmail.

84 Italy Boy July 26, 2011 at 11:47 PM

Yeah it’s funny like shit to fool people like you almost crying about the update.

85 Brian July 27, 2011 at 12:02 AM

No, I’m not crying, I’m waiting for info. Real info not retarded monkeys chattering about there dicks. Do all Italians speak as poorly as you? Your sentence dosent make any sense, “its funny like shit to fool people like you” I said it wasn’t funny. And how is something “funny like shit”. God damn! You are retarded aren’t you?

86 Quarryninja July 27, 2011 at 12:08 AM

89 Bryen July 27, 2011 at 1:18 AM

If SE were a band, we’d of stopped buying their music long ago

90 yuszx July 27, 2011 at 1:29 AM

finally successfully updated to official 2.3.
now waiting for root.

91 Rickard July 27, 2011 at 1:31 AM

@SON Goki
We don’t know that yet, we’ll wait until we get the update, then we’ll figure out if we can root it. There’s always a big chance we can. It was the same case as with Eclair. At first it seemed impossible. But we had it eventually.

92 Dave July 27, 2011 at 1:47 AM

I’m in the uk and have a generic unbranded handset, just checked the SEUS and nothing, still says I have the latest softwear 🙁

93 Fat Mother Fucker July 27, 2011 at 1:54 AM

Dunno why people go crazy checking pc companion for updates over and over. Your phone will alert you of a update….

94 Mustafa July 27, 2011 at 2:08 AM

@yuszx…which country r u from ?

95 Boonus July 27, 2011 at 2:22 AM

97 Xperia Addict July 27, 2011 at 2:30 AM

I need this update! FAST!

98 Glenn July 27, 2011 at 2:38 AM

So this update depends on the carriers again? In that case we’ll never get it on the 3 network here in Australia 🙁 They never even released 2.1 here.

99 Rickard July 27, 2011 at 2:42 AM


LOL! What’s up with the carriers there in australia? Don’t know how to update?

100 Tim July 27, 2011 at 3:05 AM

Well optus in Australia had no problem with rolling out the 2.1 update. Im dont know about froyo though .___.

101 gingerbreadhungry July 27, 2011 at 3:26 AM

Still nothing here in Morocco (unbranded handset). Come on Sony Ericsson! If the update is “HERE”, it HAS to be HERE, not tomorrow nor yesterday!

102 Damo July 27, 2011 at 3:37 AM

Just to confirm, uk doesn’t have the update yet.

103 Rickard July 27, 2011 at 4:02 AM

I have the update now.

104 Fat Mother Fucker July 27, 2011 at 4:09 AM

105 Fat Mother Fucker July 27, 2011 at 4:12 AM

@ rickard, Even katie thinks your a fucking moron. You son of a bitch. The quicker your breaks fail, the better cyber life will be a better place.

106 Rickard July 27, 2011 at 4:31 AM

Hahaha! it’s so funny how Fat mother fucker ^^ gets so fucked up mad about some simple post. You really are affected by it LOL!

107 Fat Mother Fucker July 27, 2011 at 4:47 AM

108 Bandit July 27, 2011 at 4:53 AM




109 Rickards Fat Mum July 27, 2011 at 4:53 AM

110 Demetri July 27, 2011 at 5:24 AM

111 Demetri July 27, 2011 at 5:34 AM

123 drxzEEh July 27, 2011 at 7:44 AM


124 Demetri July 27, 2011 at 8:09 AM

once we get gingerbread, can we use flashtool to root as usual? so we can download titanium and get out apps back?

also, does mybackup trial version require a rooted phone to restore data and apps?

125 guru July 27, 2011 at 8:14 AM

I tried to update my xperia x10 mini, it said I already have the latest version.

Does that mean i already have gingerbread on my phone?

Please answer me SE.

126 DrxzEEh July 27, 2011 at 8:31 AM

127 Kaliningrader July 27, 2011 at 8:31 AM

Guru, you can always check your version of Android in “About phone” in your settings menu.

128 iad July 27, 2011 at 8:38 AM

Nothing in UK on ORANGE

129 enigma July 27, 2011 at 8:49 AM

guru… go for custom rom.

130 enigma July 27, 2011 at 8:52 AM
131 pussy July 27, 2011 at 9:01 AM

mine just updated to 2.3 through SEUS. love it!
finally fully working kickass smartphone with true camera and camcorder. no more custom rom for me as its give so much headache and trouble.
if the 2.3 update still not available yet in your country that’s your network operator’s problem.
just wait xda developers to provide flashable update if you cant be patient.

132 dick July 27, 2011 at 9:04 AM

really!!!?????????? proof please!

btw. I am waiting >>>>!!

133 T1ngs July 27, 2011 at 9:10 AM

Nothing in the UK yet.
Global Generic version.

134 tiborh July 27, 2011 at 9:12 AM


go and find some mice ….. XDA do not need any advertisement here .

they are kings, but this topic is from 2.3 official , not from flashtool, and not from any other method

135 khem July 27, 2011 at 9:34 AM

you already have the latest software.
When will be available 2.3.3


136 dick July 27, 2011 at 9:36 AM

thats from a facebook site 25 min ago

Sony Ericsson
We’re in the final stage of preparing for the roll out.
Keep checking for new software via PC Companion. Once it’s available you’ll notice this.
Hebrew is not present in 2.3.3 in Xperia arc so I don’t think it will be in Xperia X10 either.


137 Azagen July 27, 2011 at 9:38 AM

Guys, I’m impatiently waiting for the update for my unbranded x10i. From Mauritius.
Can those who have already updated their x10 show some screenshots?

138 Ritvik July 27, 2011 at 9:44 AM

From India..Still no update here..The support website of SE shows the pop-up that its available but connecting to companion s/w it keeps showing that its up to date..This is really frustrating..Hope its out by tomorrow atleast.

139 tiborh July 27, 2011 at 9:45 AM

@dick please give a link, thx

140 Kaliningrader July 27, 2011 at 9:49 AM

I have a friend here in Russia who works in SE. He said that new firmware is on a server already. But he has no idea why it’s still not available… Just give us God more patience ;)))))

141 Najwan July 27, 2011 at 9:50 AM

Brilliant! but I’m wondering if it still support the Arabic language same as the recent update?

142 Kaliningrader July 27, 2011 at 9:53 AM

Najwan, I think there’ll be no problem with Arabic language support. Let’s just wait a little bit and we’ll see 😉

143 XtremeX10 July 27, 2011 at 9:54 AM

xperia x10 Australia still no 2.3 update 🙁

SE PC Companion for the Mac…?
Has Sorry Errorson completely droped the X10 owners on the Mac platform as they have done all the time! Perhaps they realized that the X10 users using Mac platform wont buy SE again!

155 mac July 27, 2011 at 12:02 PM

Mac sucks

156 YEH BITCH July 27, 2011 at 12:03 PM

Keep your eyes on the product blog. There will be a new post here pretty soon (not sure if we’re talking hours or days).

166 trublu July 27, 2011 at 1:01 PM

no 2.3 yet in SG. waiting…

167 Sure Thing Dobby July 27, 2011 at 1:05 PM

Just because the website shows the update, doesn’t mean it has to be available to download. Ever heard of websites updating their pages in advance? They also planned for a early august release. It isn’t early august. Be thankful your getting it a few days early 😉

168 Chris July 27, 2011 at 1:20 PM

Nothin down here in NZ as well.. still waiting on the update.. the sony ericsson website’s showing the availability but its not on SEUS or on PC companion.

169 Azagen July 27, 2011 at 1:22 PM

@Sure Thing Dobby; u r right.
Has anyone got the update? from somewhere?

170 Sure Thing Dobby July 27, 2011 at 1:24 PM

@ Azagen, not that i know of. I think we’ll have it by friday 😉

171 singaporeanuser July 27, 2011 at 1:26 PM

172 k July 27, 2011 at 1:27 PM

173 George July 27, 2011 at 1:35 PM

OMG I’m so excited! I wanted the Arc but this might just make me hold on to my X10 a bit longer. Woo Hoo!

186 IPTelesys July 27, 2011 at 2:00 PM

187 Chris July 27, 2011 at 2:02 PM

for ppl looking to back up their contacts, “Go Contacts” is an app avbl on the market, if ur interested. It backs up ur contacts in a .vcf file that can be opened either in outlook or usuing windows contacts. Just thought this info might be useful to some..

188 dan July 27, 2011 at 2:03 PM


189 Lakata July 27, 2011 at 2:06 PM

the guys from xda said that they have that information and i quote ” Europe should be receiving their update this Friday. Other regions by end of next week. ”
so if that is the deal we are gonna wait 2 more days 🙂

190 SbyWhoKnowsSth July 27, 2011 at 2:07 PM

@ Chris
Geee everyone is talking shit here and btw you are going to get 2.3 in few days or maybe in some hours (which is unlikely) anyway, why do you need pics?

191 dan July 27, 2011 at 2:10 PM

that’s a lie because im in asia and i was the first person ho get the update 2.3

192 Chris July 27, 2011 at 2:12 PM

@ SbywhoKnowSth: i agree with u…but its just the urge.. the wait’s been hard and long.. and u know with sonyericsson constantly changing their minds bout stuff..

193 gaga July 27, 2011 at 2:12 PM

196 Chris July 27, 2011 at 2:25 PM

@ DRuNKeN MaSTeR: 🙂 like!! 🙂

197 TylerDurden July 27, 2011 at 2:32 PM

How much is that x10 in the window?
The one with the gingerbread update?

I do hope that gingerbread is available,
available to download tonight 🙂

198 Rickards Fat Mum July 27, 2011 at 2:38 PM

Funny how you dumb people think they’re up to something just because their website ain’t working properly lol. The update comes through the pc companion. Its nothing to do with the website. Theres a reason you old fuckers should leave phones like this to the younger generation. Go back to your black and white tv’s you fools.

199 dick July 27, 2011 at 2:40 PM

According to the the all god in hell (facebook, sony ericsson blog ) the update will be on friday >>> friday !!!

Clarification regarding Gingerbread upgrade for Xperia X10
Wednesday, July 27th, 2011
As some of you have seen we have communicated on that the Gingerbread software update for Xperia X10 is available. Unfortunately that information was a bit too premature. The launch is imminent and timing according to plan but we just need some more days before we can push the button. Please stay tuned here on the product blog where we will notify you as soon as the first software kits start to roll out.

Also, please note that there is a lot of false commenting and posts impersonating Rikard Skogberg. Please respect the guidelines so that we can continue to have an open spirit and direct dialogue on this forum.

Any new information regarding Sony Ericsson software updates will always be communicated as a blog post, not in the comments field.

We will shortly introduce to you the two new bloggers that will carry Rikard’s torch during his absence.

Best Regards

Mattias Holm
Head of Product PR

no update for now see you

SE rook in fail stats

202 DrxzEEh July 27, 2011 at 4:27 PM

203 sahib July 28, 2011 at 2:03 PM

16m colors and multitouch or perfect dual touch please

204 Hannah July 28, 2011 at 8:28 PM

“Hannah July 26, 2011 at 6:44 PM
Well I am VIP and i have allready the Update, yes thats right, i have FROYO!!!”

This second Hannah that posted was not me, someone just thought it would be funny to pose as me as if I was bragging. I wasn’t, because I was disappointed in the update. The only things I see differently with this update are a little thumb icon in the corner when I’m listening to a song, and the “Media Discovery” which lets me see what videos everyone has posted. Which is kind of neat but… that’s it? And if there isn’t a thread on XDA then I don’t know where else it would have come from. Maybe it got taken down since this update is imminent. But I have it. Not lying.

205 Hannah July 28, 2011 at 8:33 PM

P.S. To Justin and Andrei, the link to the thread is located here. If you couldn’t find it yourselves then you are tools.

212 Sinky August 2, 2011 at 2:38 PM
