2.1 !!! update for xperia x8!!
atleast indian firmware!!
uploading proof pic next post
sorry for the bad pic
i dont know how to upload here..!
but as you can see its trues
backing up my files to update!
So, was the update 2.1?
got any pics of the actual device running 2.1?
yes its available in India.. darn I've to wait till tomorrow to update it :-(
omfg, can I see any web for date when the slovakia version will be released ?
Let's see if they fix the problem with the keyboard!
Upgraded in the afternoon..
2.1 dosent seem as polished as 1.6..
having wifi problems.. not able to connect to office n/w
anyone facing same issues??
Any bigger improvements you have noticed ? can u write something for us, who don't have a chance to update yet ? Thx
live wallpapers are enabled but none are included had to download some.. some of them didnt work
the blue background that SE uses has become more dark..not sure how many people will like it.. IMO the old one was better..
Same 4 corner UI and still only ONE widget per screen.
Still no playlists..
Can unlock the default android gallery using the gallery app.. which is way better than the SE customized one. bluetooth file transfer is included by default though.
The icons in various places like settings are bad compared to the previous ones.
The lock screen and call screen is very good
free ram on clean boot is still around 50 MB.. still less if you want to run lot of apps.
after installing adw it drops to 35mb.. which is almost the same as before..
overall the good thing is that we get newer version on android but the SE UI has become worse than before.. the system dosent lag as of now though..
So, my advice is that, if you dont want to run any apps specifically designed for 2.1, better stick to 1.6.. it was much better..
does it have fullscreen caller id?
ok I've updated my phone and am loving it...
few things I've noticed (am yet to discover more)
its much tidier than 1.6 and its much FASTER i must say
you can arrange widgets and icons without choosing arrange option just click and hold and drag now
the thing that hurts me most is now i cant unlock with the keymenu key instead i've to press the key on the top and use the screen to unlock the phone
contacts now have option to choose which contacts to be shown and now we can export contacts into memory cards
Live wallpaper option available but no live wallpapers given tut tut
OVER ALL QUITE SATISFACTORY
Looks good, can't wait to try it on. My Pc Companion still says am running latest soft. About the first screen that small batter on screen is widget or what ?
no its the new improved lock screen..
when you press the lock button (at the top next to charging port) this screen appears and you can only unlock by sliding the left slider (the one with lock symbol) towards extreme right
however if you drag the right slider to the extreme left you can turn you phone to silent mode
Wewee... and how to get it?
So what's the score on Neocore benchmark FPS for 2.1?
These options are on my 1.6 version! Am I missing something?
