Prepare to get mad, Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 & X10 Mini Pro owners. Sony Ericsson only just released the above information via Facebook, which is extremely interesting. And it goes a little something like this.

  • Xperia X10 Unbranded: Android 2.1 is available
  • Xperia X10 Optus, Telstra & VHA: In testing with the Carrier and available ASAP
  • X10 Mini Pro Virgin, Optus & Unbranded: Android 2.1 is available
  • X10 Mini Pro Telstra & VHA: In testing with the Carrier and available ASAP

To clear it up: If you haven’t got your update and your device is from a Carrier, it appears you need to be angry at the Carrier, not Sony Ericsson. If you do have any luck with the update, let us know in the comments or hit us up on Twitter

I ended up flashing it myself with a generic firmware. working fine with it sofar, pretty sweet.



I bought an unlocked Xperia X10 and I am connected to TPG
TPG works with Optus carrier
Does it mean I have to wait for Optus to release update or I am in the group of X 10 Non-operator group.
If so, where can I get the 2.1 update


Oh great, so Optus have outsourced to the philipines too. 5 mins going through RVAs to end up with a sheila who couldn’t understand what I wanted to know about the update. “Hi, I’m trying to find out when the Android 2.1 update is released for x10 minis this week or so?” “oh ok let me just find out for you…/hold…. Sorry what were you looking to find out?” “When the android update comes out from Optus for my x10mini” “Ok i’ll just check for you…/hold… ok what was this update for?” “No, I’m asking when the android software update… Read more ยป


This is why i left android. The carriers bs around to much with this. Windows Phone 7 and iphone and blackberry do not have this issue

google needs to get this sorted if they want to be 100% serious about winning the world over, its just sh.t


I got the Big X10 update on sunday!!!
Virgin mobile.


Any ideas when the X10 Mini (keyboardless) will launch?


about a year ago…


I got mine updated yesterday.

On Virgin used the SE Update Software put my mini pro in flash mode and away it went ๐Ÿ™‚


I shall go and hassle Optus today.
Using x10 mini btw.
Sick of waiting.


This is another reason i will never go with Telstra, making customers wait so they can make software worse..


What are you on about – all the other carriers are in more or less the same boat.


The delay in getting carriers’ devices upgraded will indicate how much their customers are at a disadvantage by their customisation.

If its a couple of weeks, its acceptable.

Months – unacceptable. No carrier bloatware is worth a long or indefinite delay in Android upgrade versions.


Thanks Buzz just the usual bullshit with carriers adding their bloatware first.
Keep up the great work
