    Update is not available for North America yet. Sit tight. It will probably be anywhere from another few days days to another couple of weeks, but it'll come.

    lol, I think he meant Canada and the US

    The shortest answer is "It depends" ... The biggest factor is carrier really. I'm branded with Rogers so I'm probably looking at mid to late November at the earliest. If you have a branded phone, it will take a touch longer because carriers need to re-package the kit with their own brand/software and such.

    If I had to wager a guess I'd probably say we'll see the US and Canada updates around a similar time frame, but there will be variations based on carrier and such.

    Oh and I should add, we are definitely anticipating seeing most updates coming within the month (November), so just keep a heads up here at the forums and I'm sure you'll see people talking about being able to upgrade or not :)

    Hello, long time reader here, finally joined the forum, I'm in Canada, I did the world 2.1 update thats posted over @ XDA, easy and to the point,. if 2.1 does not work out a 8+ months for 2.2 or 3, I'm selling my phone and saying bye bye to sony, I have no loyalty to any company so I'm good,.

    I'm going to play with 2.1 for now and see what happens, I dont need any extra junk rogers may or may add to the update so I have no problem using the world release, just makes sense to me..

    Thanks

    Yeah that's pretty much my mentality too. We've come this far, another couple weeks I can deal with.

    As for the update message, I *think* we should get one, but hopefully someone will correct me if I am wrong. Checking manually can't hurt at least. :) When I check my phone's settings under settings -> about phone, I see that it is set tocheck automatically. I can only assume this would generate a message of some kind.

    Also an option for people wanting to go that route. I prefer not to deviate from my branded software though. Males me nervous

    No it doesn't. It's saying you can only flash to 2.1 and you can't flash to 1.6 with it.

    Also, that flasher is for x10i ... if you have an x10a, it's really best just to wait.

    For the record, I'm aware of how to do it, I just have no interest in flashing my phone, it's just not worth the bother for me. I'm patient.

    I wonder if I get the international unlock version from mobilecityonline.com will i be able to get the update earlier, any ideas?
    I have the at&t version, just got it 4 days ago, but not being able to download nonmarket apps and android 1.6 is a bummer. I switched from blackberry torch, I may switch it back to blackberry again or should i wait for the update??
    thanx for ur ideas;)

    Not sure what you mean there, wait on roger or do it now, dont see how patients comes in play when I dont need anything extra from rogers, the only thing I can see them adding is the "my account" app, you can download that now, so I pretty much dont need or care to wait on they, a update is a update when its all the same lol :p,.

    Everything looks good, my phone is a x10a and it did not blow up, its making calls and getting msgs just fine and its registered back to rogers yeah, lol. its so simple I got bored lol (whatever that means), I'm a long time PC user using a Mac now and this was smooth,. get dont get it, is up to each of you :), enjoy..

    thanks

    Im typing this from my x10a that I flashed using the x10i flasher. Everything works. Shows my model as an x10i in system info though. Oh well this will tide me over until a NA release.

    i have x10i too. did you flash it yourself? and how safe is it if it fails in the middle of the process.

    i am a bit nervous about flashing. i think it's best to wait and do it OTA.
