    A very boring word of warning....

    You may well invalidate your warranty by changing your phone in this manner. So if you have any problems you may well have no come back on Sony Ericsson.

    This ini file does not force 2.1 update to a phone.

    It only forces PCC to update the software without checking, if a new soft available or not. Which means, if you don't have a 2.1 update to your phone, than it will force reinstalling your 1.6 soft.

    It is nothing, imho.

    The only solution I think is to mod the CDA from the phone (or kit number as they call it) to make SEUS think you're from Russia or India or whatever country they rolled out 2.1
