    was your x10 running 020 when it was on 1.6 cause thats what Im still on. Ive had no update to 026 or anything so I dont know if Orange are going to bundle it with 2.1 or not.
    Also Orange told me a while ago. They said by the end of the month we should have it.

    got the same message but im unbranded (ive checked)so if its just to say that they are working on an update (not to say 2.1 but just an update) it just seems a bit pointless to a network giving us this info when nothing has been said from sony when the generic one is coming so i wouldnt hold your breath for too long but it is a good sign to see that there working

    It's to be hoped it's 2.1, would be a bit poor to just give you 026 now and 2.1 after the New Year.

    Hi all
    I've just spoken to a rep from Orange regarding the 2.1 upgrade for the x10 in the UK. She told me the upgrade became available last week, and at some point all Orange users with an x10 will get a text informing of the upgrade, turn off phone etc. and it will happen automatically. Apparantly, it's on a queing system which is why we don't get the upgrade immediately, but it will happen. And no, she couldn't give me a time! No surprises there.
    She also told me that to do it yourself, the best way is to go the Sony Ericsson site, and download the upgrade from there. I haven't tried that yet, but I'll keep you posted on any success I may or may not have.
    Hope this helps......
    Cheers, David
    :)

    Ok,
    My friend and I have exactly the same phone, the SE Xperia X10i and we are both on exactly the same network, Orange. We've both been waiting for ages like everyone else to get the 2.1 android update.
    We both got the same text from orange last week explaining that the update will be coming soon.


    Yesterday he went on his phone settings, went on "about phone" and then onto software update and update now. His phone then prompted him to plug his phone into the PC and download and install the 2.1 update.

    However much to my frustration when I do the same my phone tells me "Your phone already has the latest software." When I still only have 1.6 .
    How can he have the same model of phone and the same network, yet he gets the update I can't.

    How comes I havn't had the update???:(

    (Sorry if this is a stupid question.)

    Most of the time updates are rolled out in a staggered fashion; if everyone got the update all at once it could strain their servers, so they stagger it to avoid this.

    Welcome to Android Forums, Tom.

    As DellyBelly replied to you, updates are rolled out in a manner which appears to device users as random (or "unfair" ;)). What they are trying to do is avoid server break downs due to over use.

    Sometimes it's a regional rollout, other times it's done truly randomly with a random number generator issuing device id codes in no order at all.

    All eligible devices receive the update as long as they have a battery installed and are in working order (read, "not taken apart"). A non-eligible device is one with certain stock software not in place, which can happen when a user roots his or her phone and removes said software, thus the frenzy to return rooted phones back to their stock condition in order to receive an update.

    I moved the thread to the X10 area for you.

    I'm on Orange - I managed to get it through SEUS over a week ago. Nobody had any joy through this method?

    Everytime I go on SEUS or Pc companion it says I have the latest software. Did yours say that? and if it did, did you just ignor it and install the software?
