    Last night i updated my X10 through the Sony Ericsson PC Companion software that came with the phone. Im with Vodafone.

    Navigated to 'about phone' and this is the info after the update:

    ----------------------------------------
    Firmware version 1.6

    Baseband version 1.1.28

    Kernal version - 2.6.29-rel semc-android@SEMC #2

    Build R2BA024
    ----------------------------------------

    For those who have this update or newer, what were the updates? So far i noticed i got a backup tool, and the interface of the mediascape video player is tweaked. Was there anything else?

    Appreciate it if a list of changes/updates is provided, useful for everyone. I can update the list here.

    List of changes/updates after R2BA024 update:)

    * Backup tool installed
    * Mediascape video player interface tweaked
    * can now change timescape background colour New keyboards added - Chinese, Korean.
    * the unlock "swipe" more smoother

    They've added a Backup and Restore function, but mainly it's a speed improvement

    Argh! Why did I just try to upgrade!

    Followed the instructions to the letter and now the PC Companion application is just stuck on the Phone Software Update screen at the "2. Prepare" stage and I can't do anything.

    Getting increasingly frustrated with this phone. :mad::mad:

    Edit: And now "Unable to install or start phone software update components" errors.. Argh

    Hey! I have the same problem :(
    I tried the SEUS to and It's the SAME problem!
    Am I suppose to keep holding the back button even after the phone turns back on?
    EDIT: Got it to update, but when I went to go check

    It says Firmware Version 1.6
    Baseband Version 1.1.25
    Kernel Version 2.6.29 rel
    Build Number R2BA020

    Isn't it suppose to change :/ ergh!!

    ok realise that r2ba024 is the same as 023 and 020 it all depends on your network provider 024 is vodafones port for the branded junk they put on the phone.. to check for updates go
    settings
    about phone
    software update
    update now duurrrrrr

    if it says you have the latest firmware and you are still on 014 or 016 ring your provider and go nuts then go to their forum and stir up some trouble and try and force the update out of them..
    sony have done what they needed for now in my opinion the likes of voda tmobile etc should not be allowed to interfere with the handsets as they end up ruining the experience for the end user!! and making in this case sony look stupid..

    and if you use the companion you may lose numbers not on sim apps basically anything on handset memory sd card is safe..
