Damn Sonyericsson. 4 day passed and there.is no update yet. what are you doing Sony ?
Awesome update n x10 becomes very fast
initially lagged abit straight after the update but after restarting it,no lag at all n very fast
Overall great update with improvement in graphics,performance n a bit louder audio quality through headphones
When it will come to india?. Android start the next version (Gingerbread - 2.3, Honeyhomb and Icecream) but still sony struggling to update for 2.1... really it sucks.
i've just upgraded to 2.1 via PC Companion last night! took around 40mins to complete update.
tried to download latest backup and restore tool from m.sonyericsson.com/backup but for some reason i could not download from that site directly to my phone. says "temporarily moved"
i couldn't wait so i just snyc'd my contact to google, used the old backup and restore tool, used astro file manager to backup apps.
then i updgraded to android 2.1
phone became laggy and slow!
installed astro immediately to recover apps. (after recovering from astro, all apps no longer shows on "downloads" tab on the market app. so i think i won't be reminded/notified of updates for my apps so i installed atrackdog as well to track updates for my apps)
restored my contacts but somehow got f&$%cked up! under one contact name it duplicated the numbers, emails, etc. (one is under phone contacts, another under google account). tried again this time disabling contacts snyc with google. only enabled facebook contacts sync. seems ok as of now.
removed all shortcuts and widgets from all (5) homescreens.
set ADW Launcher as my default home. (used home switcher app).
and now it's way faster than before!!! a lot more smoother too!
used atrackdog to update apps. found 3 apps (not shown on market "downloads tab" app). updated those three via market. now those 3 updated apps are already shown in the "downloads tab" on the market app! so i reckon updating those 3 via market app from now on won't be a problem. only problem now would be for my 30+ remaining apps.. -_-; i must still use atrackdog for those...
since now i'm using ADW and the phones much more faster, i'm beginning to enjoy the upgrade! everythings noticeably faster than before the upgrade.
now i'm observing battery life. so far... since unplugging from my laptop 7am today, (now it's 1:35pm here) it's at 72% (as reported on mini-info app. i'm also using juice defender by the way and advanced task killer set to autokill "safe")
3G was on. listened to streaming music via xiialive app for 30 mins on the way to work.
turned on wifi when i reached the office and used office wifi for internet connection.
so far battery life is ok. ...so far at least... =/ haven't played any games or kept the screen on for too long...
well that's it for now.
goodluck on those still waiting for the update!
oh by the way.. ADW launcher doesn't support live wallpapers? tried to use one but wallpaper won't update when using ADW... any comment on this?
I work at optus and spoke to the sony ericsson rep.he confirmed the update to come out sometime this week for aus.it is already on the sony ericsson website but just have to wait for the carriers optus telstra vodafone to accept the upgrade then you will get a notifaction saying ready to update and plug your phone into comp and update.cant wait
still no update here in the philippines! whats going on sony!? many country dont have yet the update!! it turns out that the promise is not true sony!! don't announce yet if you cant give us the update! sony sucks in all ways!!
roelrpt, 02 Nov 2010whats your location x10? i'm waiting for the update. I'm in Australia but I bought my phone on eBay shipped from hong kong. Not sure if that makes any difference with region settings and all. So far so good. The speed has improved and is noticeable. The interface is very nice. I haven't had much time to play with it as much. There are some extra widgets that I find both useful and visually appealing. Overall I am very satisfied and was worth the wait.
