    "Here is new X10flash for Firmware 2.1 Version (old 1.6 Firmware can not be flashed with this at the moment)". does this mean if i have a phone with 1.6 on it i cannot flash?

    No, it means you can't flash 1.6 FW to a phone with the tool, as it's for flashing 2.1 FW only.

    Sorry I am new to this,
    i have a SE X10a locked to rogers and unrooted
    will i be able to flash my phone to 2.1 using only what was in that quote?

    EDIT: I would wait if you have an X10a.

    You can install 2.1 right now but it will be version X10i, not X10a. It should work well, but I'd rather wait until I get the update directly from SE (I have the unbranded X10a from Argentina) or better if a global version X10a comes up on the interweb.

    "and run the X10flash.bat"

    Sorry for being slightly dim here but, I take it the phone has to be plugged into the PC for that bit? Does it have to be in flash mode or whatever?

    Okay I followed the guide thing, and now when I turn my phone on it had a little picture of a camera and then the phone beneath it with an arrow pointing from the camera to the phone. Couldn't do anything with it. It managed to get past that after about 5 mins to the SE logo and animation but it's now stuck with the logo and the SE text beneath it after all the colours swirl around it. Has just frozen again. Suggestions?

    I had the same problem. What became my solution was to clear out the deviceID txt file to blank, saving it then making sure my UAC was deactivated. I tried again from the beginning and it was a success.

    I just ran it through SEUS hoping it'd set back to 1.6, turns out it's 2.1 now. Happy days. :)

    Hey guys i can't seem to get my Device ID, i mean i got it too appear the other day, but now when i want to flash i can't get it again.... I have put in the same codes on "regedit" and done everything by the book, but all that appears after the search is a list of things, but no device ID....

    I've post on the other thread about the updates, so sorry if it's annoying or not meant to be here...

    My problem is that once I've connected to PC Companion, done Step 1, all ok, done step 2, fine UNTIL, I have to re-start the phone. I hold the back key ultimately at the same time plunging into the phone the USB cable, green-light appears (not sure how long to continue pressing, I've varied it whilst the light goes off I unhold or after 10 sec of seeing the light I then unhold either way, I think I've masted all techniques here) once it start and Companion asks me to tab and mount it wants me to go through the whole process from Step 1!!! Am I doing anything wrong??? I've even used a different SD card
