    1) SONY Ericsson Official update stopped at 2.1.1 There are no more updates from SONY Ericsson to 2.2

    2) 2.2 ROM for Xperia X8 are custom ROMs. You must have a PC to install 2.2 custom ROMs.

    check out "X8 - All Things Root" for more information.

    cheers :)

    There are no updates for custom roms
    and you cannot update custom roms using pc companion.
    you can only update a custom rom if there is a new custom rom posted by the developer... e.g racht's Floyo-0.15--> upgraded to --> Floyo-0.20

    If you want to go back to the official SONY Ericsson's 2.1.1

    you can use xRecovery to flash your original rom backup
    switch off your phone
    launch pc companion on your PC
    plug in your USB cable to your phone
    hold the back button and plug in your USB to your PC
    the repair process should start...

    cheers :)

    Ok. If you cannot use PC Companion or SEUS then try flashing the original ROM back to your phone.

    Follow this link here

    Make sure you get the correct original rom... (E15a 2.1.1 or E15i 2.1.1)

    cheers :)
