I am currently running 2.1update1 (with which the phone was shipped) and want to install the new update it says is available. I understood this phone can be updated over wifi, with no need for a PC, but now it says I must use a computer. The trouble is, I use Linux. I don't have a Windows PC. The closest thing is a copy of XP SP2 running inside VMWare. However, while PC Companion will connect to the phone for file management, etc. it won't connect after I have gone through the power off - hold down back key procedure. SEUS does not work either. I suspect this is because the phone will only connect once in these circumstances, and that has to be the SE software, but Linux must connect first before passing the device on to VMWare. I've tried blacklisting USB storage on the Linux side, but it still doens't work. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have to say, I'm quite annoyed as I did think I'd be able to receive updates without having to use any sort of PC. Is there any other way to get official updates onto the phone (even if this involves rooting or some other hacking)?
