    i think its just an error,

    its the pc companion update from the site and you update it from there.

    kinda stupid that they put this there then though:

    (its gonna be dutch for the dutch people here, at work atm so i dont have the time to translate to english :p)

    Wanneer de nieuwe software beschikbaar is, ontvang je een bericht in de meldingsbalk van je telefoon. Om te upgraden, sluit je telefoon aan op een PC en gebruik PC Companion. Dit programma leidt je door het hele updateproces. Je verneemt ook hoe je een back-up van je instellingen en data maakt en hoe je ze na de upgrade herstelt.
    Als je PC Companion nog niet hebt, download het dan via de onderstaande knop.
    Nieuwe functies zijn onder meer:
    - Verbeterde Bluetooth-functie met ondersteuning voor verzenden en ontvangen van afbeeldingen, contacten en meer
    - Nieuwe back-up- en hersteltoepassing met uitgebreide back-up van inhoud
    - Automatische synchronisatie van afbeeldingen van je contacten tussen Facebook en telefoonboek
    - Verbeterde verwerking van afbeeldingen, audio, tekst en cijfers in je berichten
    - Upgrade van het Android-platform naar Android-platform 2.1
    De beschikbaarheid kan afhangen van de operator en/of markt

    as you can see it states the 2.0 pc companion update but why add the text for android 2.1 and enhanced bluetooth options?

    feel free to share your opinion cuz we all want the update ! :p

    the update is on a rollout, it's started in the netherlands region and will roll out to the rest of us over the coming month(s)
    when you get the update depends on the country you're in and the network you're on, T-Mobile UK have said end of November for their customers
    I'm in the UK and have an unlocked phone, so hopefully I won't have to wait for a network operator's bloated version and get a generic update

    got my update to 2.1!

    my LED notification when receiving email, SMS, missed calls seems not to be blinking anymore...

    I tried testing it using handcent SMS wherein you can the your notification. but the LED indication seems not to be working. previously with android 1.6 it is working fine.

    anyone has this issue? anyway to solve it?

    charging and low battery indicator, the LED is working fine.

    Don't know an answer but would Blink - Flash LED in Your Way, free app from market, force it in to working?
  18. ison_machine

    ison_machine Member

    I already solve the LED notification problem, it seems to be its the "setting profiles" app again. I guess it is messing around with my hardware controls.

    I tried to download blink from the market but it is not there...

    anyway problem is gone.

    now, i am maximizing the battery efficiency...

    I'm having the same problem with my X10 mini pro as Epidemical, although I live in Finland. The PC Companion says my phone is up to date, but it's 1.6 according to info on the phone. Tried to uninstall/reinstall the companion with no effect.

    What's more confusing, the phone informs that there's an update available when I launch the update service from "Settings/About phone/Software update".

    Already phoned the service provider but they couldn't help and said that there shouldn't be a problem.

    What a frustrating roll out of an update after a frustrating wait.

    Have you tried via Sony Ericsson Update Service, downloadable from their website. I have seen this work where PC Companion says up to date.

    Thanks for the help! I actually got the update running via PC Companion after third uninstallation/reinstallation. I must have forgotten to uninstall the companion or something with the previous attempts 'cause now it started to work. Finally. Welcome 2.1.

    can you please give details as to how you fixed the problem with the LED not working. I seem to be having the same issue. LED on lights up when charging. But for sms or apps it doesnt.

  23. ison_machine

    ison_machine Member

    after the update to 2.1, this LED notification on email/SMS is working ONLY if the device is at sleep mode. when the screen is on it does not light up unlike in 1.6 even the screen is on the LED notification lights up. Maybe this improvement is a way on conserving some battery life.

    are you using the same as i did "setting profiles"?

    I was able to update one of my Xperia Mini Pro here's the version:
    Model Number: U20i
    Firmware Version: 2.1-update1
    Baseband version: M76XX-TSNCJOLYM-53404006
    Kernel version: 2.6.29 SEMCUser@SEMCHost #1
    Build number: 2.0.A.0.504

    But I encountered a problem with the other one with this version:
    Baseband version: unknown

    I used the same PC Companion version 2 and it always detect that it has the latest software even it is:
    Firmware Version: 1.6

    Anyone has the same problem? I found a workaround to debrand the phone but I am afraid I might break the device.

    Any help is very much appreciated.
