I've had my x10 since NOV. 24. I've have been keeping tabs on when the android 2.1 update is to be released, but I have not seen any AT&T updates at all. I see that SE has released non-android updates. Did I miss them. I use both SEUS and PC companion but have not been notified of any updates. I also use the in-phone update service with no results. I have read that the updates have provided performance increases. Did my phone update without my knowing? My phone specs from :settings/about phone/ firmware ver. 1.6; baseband ver 1.1.32; kernel ver 2.6.29-rel semc-android@SEMC #2; build number R2CA016. Any info is gladly welcome.
At&t has not bashed out any updates to the X10. I am not sure what you mean by non-Android updates but yes SE does have updates out. Your device is in OS 1.6 and you will not get any updates unless pushed out by at&t.
Those that have updated, including me have flashed the phone with a generic ROM to get it and yes the performance has improved.
I've found on the SE website there are 3 software updates released by SE. The first was a non-os update, meaning on 6/24/10 the build was updated not the android version, then on 11/1/10 they released the android 2.1 update, then on 12/21/10 they updated the build for droid 2.1 . I wanted to see if anyone still branded has ever received the first build update from June. According to the SE blogs that update was a big time performance boost. For now I'll stay branded till they get a full 2.2 rom working since they biggest upgrade bonus for me will be flashplayer and app-2-SD.
The X10 will now be slated for Gingerbread OS in the second or third quarter, according to SE's blog. This is a HUGE announcement, because they announced it would stay on 2.1. Backup and Restore software from SE is incompatible with 2.3,so this might be the sign at&t was looking for. I JUST HOPE WE WILL BE GETTING THIS NEW UPDATE, MEANS WE CAN get apps meant for models 2.-and higher.
