    [May 26] Did you get the android 2.3.3 update in your country? List here - xda-developers

    I'm not seeing yet (I'm in Massachusetts).

    What's inside (from here):

    I think the US will get a different update since we have vanilla gingerbread.

    Verizon Play here. Why do I keep getting an update prompt that informs me to disable wifi so it can download and install it?

    I keep getting that message as well. And I hit update and nothing ever seems to happen.

    Use SEUS (Sony Ericsson Update Service) on PC to download & install.

    You WILL lose root, Gingerbreak doesn't work on 2.3.3.

    Unlocked bootloaders CANNOT update.

    Update available via SEUS for all locales.

    How do you update with SEUS with a Verizon Xperia Play? The option for MTP (Media Transfer) does not exist on the Verizon Xperia Play.

    I tried updating through the SE PC Companion and it wanted me to go into MTP mode. But the Verizon Play can't go into that mode. So I downloaded SEUS and was able to get it to check for an update. But it told me that my phone is up to date.

    My phone info says I'm on 2.3.2

    I'm not really sure what's going on. But every time my phone is rebooted, it wants me to update my phone. Click yes, nothing happens. It looks like 2.3.3 isn't out for the R800x on Verizon yet, but for some reason the phone thinks it has an update available.

    thats becuase its not rolled out globally yet.
    2.3.3 can only be done manually at the mo heres how i did it.
    download and install x10flashtool
    download the lt15i 2.3.3 02 ftf file over at xda website.
    unrar the file and put it in the flashtool firmware folder.
    now where flash unrared you also have a driver folder, install the driver.
    now open flashtool run flash and choose the 02 file we moved earlier and wait to be prompted to connect phone.
    now turn your phone off and connect via usb while holding the back button (arc)
    sit back allow the flash to install.

    my problem is gingerbreak wont root this 2.3.3 version anyone any idea becuase i cant restore my backed up stuff on titanum now ???

    I couldn't update using the PC companion, but SEUS worked a treat, thanks deadlydazza, not having root access does suck though - any news on when gingerbreak will be updated to fix this? Cheers

    Any update on this? Just picked up Xperia Play today for my kid and it's prompting for software update every time I reboot. I click yes and nothing ever happens.

    You should probably ask in the x10 forum.

    Did the handset turn on when you connected it? I ask this as some people do not realise that you need to leave the phone off and ensure you are holding the back button down before you begin to connect the handset.
