    Hi all....
    Haven't been on this forum for awhile, but I must say I've found it very helpful when I have. Anyway, enough of the love-in......
    I had a go on my mates HTC phone, and it has version 2.2, which has flash!!! Which means (apart from a zillion other things) you can watch things like Catch-Up TV. It's like having a FreeView box on ur phone. And, whilst I couldn't even get a 3G signal (nothing unusual there!), her HTC was running nice and smoothfully.
    So, when are we getting 2.2? I'm concerned that because 2.1 was released recently it could be months before we get it.
    Any ideas?
    Thx :)

    Hi SBD.... excuse my ignorance, but what exactly does that mean in practical terms? I know what a beta is......but what does the future hold and when?
    Thx

    Well the multi touch is excellent, the flash is great for surfing the net. The rom is quick without all that sony bloatware. The Apps2Sd also saves a ton of memory, I use this rom as my daily rom. Zidhu is working his ass off trying to get the camcorder working, so I don't know how long that will be. I hope this helps :)

    There will NEVER be a Official sony ROM.
    The only way will be to flash it yourself, xrecovery is very easy,
    the FREE X10 2.2 ROM, Is my weapon of choice.

    as for updates to it, that depends on the DEV's

    lol @ wynney : spoken like a true sheffield steeler ;)
    +1 - Sony have new toys to play with - x10 might get some tidy-updates but the general feedback from SEMC is that the device will not be supported past 2.1 :(
