    Hi everybody.

    Im all new to this but i have had my X10 since beginning of october on Vodafone. It came up with update avaliable on handset three days ago but when i wire it up to my lappy to update it says that it is upto date. at the min i have got 1.6. Is it the actual handset that is faulty or is it vodafone that havent released the update as i thought it wouldnt matter what network it was on to get the updates automatically?

    Help anybody

    What are u using to update it ? are u following the steps that SEUS has ? Download SEUS and use that app to Update ur phone .. if ur phone says that the update is available then you shouldn have any problems updating... .. SEUS requires you to turn off the phone and wait for 30 secs .. then while connecting the date cable ( while the phone is off) .. u need to hold down on the back key .. and then the software will promt you to let go .. It should then give you the option of updating ... if you need the links to SEUS .. let me know.. also if u have done this already and still havent reciebed the update .. there are other ways .. so let me know :)

    Best way to make sure it works is to remove battery from the phone....plug USB cord into phone and other end into the computer and hold the back button. Then insert the battery back in the phone when you are asked to.

    That video shows how to root the phone, but it is the same steps if you are using PC Companion or SEUS from Sony. They require you to start the phone in a type of flash mode when it instructs you to.

    I do not know what you are trying to do.

    Does it tell you there is an update, but it doesn't update?

    If you have only tried using PC Companion, download SEUS from Sony and try using it to update. SEUS is more reliable.

    Download this and try and install the latest x10 update.

    First, what are you trying to do? Update to what version.

    You aren't doing it right.

    Do it the way in the video if you are still trying to update.

    Remove battery, plug the USB cable into the phone and into the computer, then go through the SEUS from Sony upgrade process (not using PC Companion) When it says to plug the phone into the computer while holding the back buttton, just hold the back button and put the battery in the phone.

    If it doesn't work try another USB port on the computer....make sure you are using the USB cable that came with the phone. If you have a computer that has USB ports on the front and back, try the USB ports in the back of the computer to do the update.
