    Well it can be done at any amount, but it is highly recommended to have at least 50% before you do it, incase your battery goes dead half way through

    My job is pretty great. You don't work there... th
    Canada.
    Thanks to too many damn threads on the update, I have NO CLUE where to put this (this is ridiculous guys), so I'm just going to cross-post it.

    I found this in the Comments section of the Sony Product Blog, someone claiming to know a slightly more detailed time-table; the only problem? No indications on how he knows this information, so it could all be bogus. But I figured I'd post it "just in case":

    timetable:
    UK – tomorrow noon
    Germany – Monday
    France and Benelux – Tuesday morning
    Spain, Portugal – Tuesday evening
    Italy, Greece – Wednesday
    Russia – Thursday
    Eastern Europe – Friday, except Poland (because of the NK application incompatibility, which is investigated now)
    The rollout to other regions should finish before Nov 15

    It took them months and months if not the better part of a year just to get the phone to even come to the US. I think it just finally showed up here about 6 weeks ago or something. The update to the USA will probably be sometime next year when the dual core Droid phones come out running 2ghz processors. We'll be so far behind.:(

    Not 100% sure if you're being serious or not but Canada's about the last place to get.. anything tech related and SE Canada said the update would be november. Hopefully won't be THAT long^^

    actually I am kind of serious. I've been watching this phone for quite a long time on the net. Its been in Europe and other countries for a long time now. AT&T just finally got the phone here where I live and I got an email from Sony when it got released and it was literally like 6-7 weeks ago or thereof. I do truly hope it doesn't take that long for the update to get here but for now I am enjoying the phone as it is... with some rooting anyhow, lol.

    I'm sorry if this has been asked before but I have seen T Mobile and o2 mentioned in some posts. Does anyone have any news about Orange? My Xperia x10 is Orange branded and I don't know if this will slow down when I will get my update.

    Before flashing to 2.1 I was on Nordic firmware for over 4 months with no problems what so ever, if you didn't know you were on Nordic firmware you wouldn't know.

    Everything works the same as on UK with the benefit of getting any firmware updates a little sooner.

    Oh, yes the downside, there's a Nordic app that comes with the firmware - just go to applications and remove it...that's it ;)

    Nope, works fine on x64 for me. Retrace your steps and reread the guide, the majority of issues are user error.

    The only thing I need to make sure is that I can reverse the whole thing once my network release the update, my x10 is branded T-mobile UK 026, So how do I go about backing up the current branded rom so I can use flashtool later to revert back??
    Or should I just wait cos its only goin to be a week or tow till I the release it :)

    i can actually second that motion i work for radio shack and i can 110% guarantee that the first dual core android phone drops this week by t-mobile its call the my touch 4g. running dual core qualcom scorpion processor and android 2.2 with updates to 3.0 when it launches. (btw i live in the US) so i feel your pain :( and i hope the x10 update doesn't take to next year otherwise i fear i will be forced to sell this phone and buy something else. on another note ill let you all know about the 4g when it launches this week.

    You should get a notification on your phone letting you know it is available
