    Hi: I just purchased an X10. I know that I can update my phone to 2.1 without rooting it, but once I have updated it, will I still have to deal with Sony's alterations to the OS? Am I better off rooting it as well?

    Ok, so are these sony alterations for the better or worse? Would I be better off removing these customizations, and is there a way to update to a 'purer' version of the Android 2.1 OS?

    Pretty much the same blue theme throughout as 1.6. See the differences HERE.
    Each to their own on the look, and you can load the AOSP ROM, but they are still in better stage, which is why I'm waiting before installing one.

    So, the only alterations sony made is to the look? There are no sony-specific widgets I'd be stuck with, or sony-specific menus?

    I am new to the X10 too, but the only "Bloatwear" I see seems to be from At&t, so I think it is more carrier specific than manufacturer.

    I deleted it all from the home screens, I can't delete it from the device, but you don't see it so not sure it is a big deal.
