I think he means, an image of a phone with an image of a camera hovering above it
I'm on Orange uk and I flashed mine with Nordic FW last night and got the 2.1 update. If you dont want the wait then do that.
When you are on the Phonebook, press Menu, then press update status, and when you update your status, it displays ...via Sony Ericsson X10 As shown in the image below
You can also do it in timescape
Go to 'Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications'. This screen is SOOOO much better now! Used to be sllloooowwww and loooooong, not anymore
Does flashing it to nordic require rooting or debranding?
Not now no. - http://androidforums.com/sony-ericsson-xperia-x10/210344-help-2-1-update-noobs-like-me.html#post1823991
The auto-brightness feature has been removed which is odd.
Since yesterday, after rooting, the speed is very good, no lags, still had to install a task killer to automatically close unwanted apps.
Customizing the screen icons are also faster, moving and swapping icons etc. Seems the screen is more responsive now.
I love the new widget of Recent Calls, which places three of the contacts you recently called with their photo and phone number on it. Clicking on one of the three recent call contacts puts you calling them straight away without having to re-open the call log or searching the contact again.
hey mates the update time has come , but well my carriier is too closed here in my country, i hope they release it by january ,, if they.... so im thinking in debrand my handset, roserer and cubz what can I dohe first problem is that my phone is x10a,,, sad
When you charge the phone it wont automatically turn on now =]
Just want to make sure, so after u rooted your phone had no lags, did anyone else experience this also
I can confirm that the in call speaker (ear) is now much better, i.e. like a normal phone now.
That was the only issue I had with the phone previously.
well, i just realize that when you put your phone on silent mode and taking photo, there isnt any sound which is different to the 1.6, cant silent the camera sound love this =))
Ahhh Goku you can now take sneaky pics then!!! Lol. Some people have been able to with 1.6 but I can't turn mine off.
sneak pics as what... >"< lols =))
yeah, with the 1.6, i cant do with my either,
but hey, my original model was x10a, and now, i just hack using xda flash thing, it's x10i now, any problems with that>?
It's just the same as 1.6 for me
I've temporarily sticky this thread so that (new) members can see this and post all their discoveries here instead of creating new threads. This will get unsticky once the 2.1 update craze dies down.
Congrats to everyone that got 2.1 I hope you're enjoying all of the new things you can do with your X10.
From one Rose to another Roze, nice one - thanks. (Thought it was against the Forum standards tho!)
Where do i look for the 2.1 update. is it over-the-air, or do i visit sony/t-mobile website?
i'm on t-mobile and i guess it will be end of november.
This has done this since 1.6
The only difference is the GSM and WCDMA bands so you might have some signal issues but that might not be for sure here's a post on it What are the differences between the X10i and X10a? - xda-developers
Curiously they say that you can't turn one into another?
The windows option for the browser now does not show a preview, which i find more annoying and the auto brightness feature has been removed, which i too do not like.
O did it lol I only noticed it in 2.1 lol
My initial impressions are pretty poor
In call volume seems pretty similar to me - still have to have it on max to hear people
The widget that allows to turn phone onto vibrate mode has been removed (well silent function has been). NOw you have to press power button to lock phone and then activate silent mode by sliding thingy across. Why do SE insist on making things more difficult than they need to be?!
Still a pain to call someone - why doesnt the dialler 'translate' numbers to digits and allo you to filter search for someone's name e.g. like Thaidial (which doesnt seem to work on 2.1)
Why have they added a SE sync button on widget tool bar when you can set it to auto update and sync? This replaced the silent button I mentioned earlier.
My phone is now laggier than it was before and the home screen transitions still dont slide very nicely (small point I know).
DOnt see any new functionality as yet...overall its 1.6 with a new name - nothing to get excited about at all
This seems to be the same as they have put on the X8, the widget reads left to right Wifi, Bluetooth, GPS, Sync and then brightness.
You can use your volume rocker to turn volume down/vibrate/off if that helps.
