Default Need Help-Unable to Update Android!

I've had my phone for almost a year now and today my friend (who has the same phone) asked me if I've updated my phone yet. But when I connected my phone to my PC laptop, there were no new updates to be found. I also tried going to settings and about phone, also no new updates found. I'm not sure if there's something wrong with my phone because after I disconnected it to my PC laptop, the phone would freeze. The SD card also periodically doesn't read and I would have to restart my phone and pull out the card. Please help!

model #: SK17a
android version: 2.3.4
kernal version: 2.6.32.9-perf

Join the club, there are a few of us all in the same boat. Apparently sony does not give a damn about us and expects us to go out a buy the new hand sets if we want the update.
Basically if you haven't had the update from sony then you have no chance of ever getting it (this is the common no BS translation of sony's answers)

Did you guys try SEUS instead of the PC Companion ?
Update service - Sony Smartphones (Global UK English)
SEUS deletes all settings but is more effective than the regular update ....
Also SEUS is annoying to use really ....

As a Last Resort ,if you dont have root (I like to root ),use Flashtool to Update
Rooting is a headache with ics (downgrade -upgrade ...takes an hour or so ..)

What is flash tool :Consider it it an unofficial way to get official updates
What it does : Flash Stock firmware on phone

Flash tool Thread :http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1351309
Official ICS .587 :http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1907994

The Must Read thread

Honestly speaking AF-AC-Rootz dont have Xperia 2011 Community and Support (Not surprised )

All the action is on XDA and Sony Forumz
http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1239
Main: Community: Xperia mini/pro

You will get faster answers there IMO ....

Like the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini, the Xperia Mini Pro offers a ton of great features that compare to today's top smartphones but keeps it in a nice, small package. It even offers something its Mini brother doesn't - a full slideout QWERTY... Read More
