    I have an X10i. Supplied by an O2 dealer (UK).

    firmware version 1.6
    baseband version 1.0.16
    kernel version 2.6.29-rel semc-android@ SEMC #2
    build number R1FA016

    Everytime I try to upgrade to a more recent set of files / operating system such as android 2.1 the SE program tells me I already have the most up to date files.

    I have used PC companion and update service.
    A similar phone bought at the same time upgraded to 2.1 easily. can anyone offer some advice please.

    The easiest way to get 2.1 would be to flash it. I'm not on my computer right now but go to XDA-Developers, X10 forums, and look for the right tools. It's really easy.

    As ribeyesteak just said, folllow those links. Download a generic X10i, use the flash tool (follow the tutorials). That's it!
