Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: With 2.1 Update The Screen Will Look Better?
Apr 29, 2010
So the screen supports 16m colors but because of 1.6 its limited to 16k. So with that being said when it updates to 2.1 it will be 16m colors, how much better will it look though? Cant wait to see how it looks!
So I did some modding (unfortunately) to the framework-res.apk file and it worked the first time and a few other times but then I changed something and now when I turn on the phone it freezes at the "Sony Ericsson" screen before the logo. What do I do?
I tried pushing the backup framework file but it says "failed to copy framework-res.apk to /sdcard/framework-res.apk: Permission denied
However, when I use adb devices, it does show my device as being attached.
So what can I do now?
I was also able to pull files...
Also tried manually putting the framework-res.apk in the sdcard and then using adb to copy it to the framework folder. Doesnt work. Saids that the directory cannot be open for read. I guess the device cant read the SD card until it boots up.
i found out that the update to 2.1 is here on three uk now when i try to update my phone using pc companion or SEUS it freezes my computer. i get to the point were i turn the phone off and turn it back on holding the back button but nothing happens and my computer just freezes up any help with this one? i am on sony ericsson x10
And don't tell us something about "secrets" SE has, 2.2 is out for weeks, every other comparable android phone has it. So not saying anytinh about 2.2 means the X10 won't get it and is dumped after the 2.1 update. SE I will never waste again 500â
As you've probably guessed this is regarding not having the G mail account details to unlock my phone. I have looked through the threads on this site (amongst countless others) and nothing has been overly helpful so I figured I'd just ask Basically, I have locked myself out of my phone and can't remember the G mail details required to unlock it. Most people keep replying with "Do a software update using PC Companion" but this doesn't make sense to me as you need to have your phone unlocked to be able to connect your phone to it so that doesn't work (unless there is something painstakingly obvious that I'm overlooking?) I've done the obvious things; taking out the battery, taking out the SIM, trying every single email/password combination I've ever used but nothing is working.
I got my update 3 days ago, and now I dont feel my x10 anymore. Its not special anymore.. Anybody knows how to go back to 1.6? I got unlocked rogers phone in Canada. My battery used to go almost 3 days, now not even 24 hrs!! It does NOT charge more than %91.. Texting is so harder now, touchscreen is sooooo sensitive. app. menu sucks.
I found out today that three have released 2.1 but when I tried to update using pc companion it just stops and nothin happens after I have done the steps were I have to turn phone off wait 5 seconds an all that stuff. What do o do?
I got my phone about two months ago, for the past few weeks I have been having problems with the microphone. When I call people sometimes every things fine, other times I need to hang up and call again because they cant hear me. Sometimes I need to call 3 or 4 times until they can hear me. I took it back to the shop where I got it and they thought it might be a software problem. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Also I have tried updating the software on my laptop and it doesn't seem to be working.
I have now managed to update my phone. I hadn't realised at first that I had touse the update service software, rather than going through the phone or PC Companion. Still on Android 1.6, of course, but now have baseband version 1.1.25 and kernel version 2.6.29.
At first glance, the phone doesn't seem to have changed as lot. My contacts and applications are all as they were, as far as i can tell. The only change I have seen is that I can now use a different theme for Timescape from the rest of the phone. I use the normal black background for most things, but I can use light blue, dark blue, orange, green or pink in Timescape now. I don't think I had a choice before.
Has anyone else who has been able to update noticed anythign else...?
Myself, started with backup and restore, backup was completed and also backed up my contacts to flash just in case. Hooked phone to PC companion and was informed an update was available. Followed through the update process and when the phone was disconnected and powered on as instructed I was still left with 1.6. Now when I connect to PC companion I am informed software is up to date with 1.6.
I clicked on update on my phone today and it said a software update was available.Haven't been able to update yet as my phone battery is too weak apparently.Anyone know what this update does, and should i be excited
I installed android 2.1 today but for some reason I can't restore my contacts.I followed the instructions on the sony ericsson webpage and used the SE backup software to make a backup of my contacts, mms, photos etc. When I restored everything after the update everything was restored except my contacts. How can I get my contacts back? Is there some way to extract them manually from the backup file or something? The backup software can't seem to restore them for me.
I am with Xperia X10 and I know that there has to be an update! At least when I connect the phone to the laptop, that's what my PC Companion is telling me. But I can't go past the plug the cable and hold the back button. I tried both the companion and the update service but I can't go past the plug in and press back buttons. If I hold it for a longer period of time, the phone just turns back on!
Got a ping last night to say that there was an update available (yay!). Went through Sony Update Service and it downloaded 154MB of update and then applied it. On restart the only difference I could see was that there was a new app - Creatouch - and what appears to be a library file (com.sonyericsson...) in my app list. So two questions:
1. How come that Creatouch - which app management claims is less than 4.5MB - needs a 154MB download? What else was in that update (there's no release notes I can find for it - which would have been useful)?
2. Is there anyone in SE that I can send feedback to (Jeff/KrazyD - maybe this is question for you?). Obviously something's not right in the update if it's putting a library file into the applist where users might try and run it. I did try that (being nosy) and got an alert dialogue "The process android.process.acore has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again" (which I've not done)
I thought this might be the long-awaited 2.1 update - but post install my phone's still at 1.6 (build R2BA020).Still maybe this is preparation for 2.1 and at least this update came direct from SE, rather than having to wait for my teleco to look at it.
I'm looking to debrand my x10, to receive the 2.1 update quicker (when SE release it) , Rather than wait for vodafone to release it. My phone is currently vodafone branded. Ive been looking on this site: Debrand your Xperia X10 [Tutorial] | Xperia X10 Blog.
As the title says my phone will no longer download from the market or update anything its weird as it was working OK last week ( don't use it to down load much) but now all I get is update or download unsuccessful please try again. Been trying this in different place so I don't think its the signal.
I attend to this error in notifications several times each day. I'm not asking it to update mind you. It's trying this all of it's smarty pants x10i self. When I actually do bring up the facebook application it acts ok. The one thing this x10i can't do is upgrade to adobe flashplayer. There are places that tell me I don't have video on my phone in order to view the news clip or whatever. It's not a big deal to me and don't really need it. It would be nice to turn off the facebook "unable to update" in my notifications, without removing facebook entirely.
