I bought Xperia X10i this summer during DebConf10 in NYC, I loved this phone from very beginning however what bothered me was that it was still stuck on outdated Android 1.6. To get your own custom Android on it, wasn’t quite possible because no one managed to hack bootloader even though some of the guys at XDA where getting pretty close.
Long story made short, Sony Ericsson has finally release their Android 2.1 update, but made it available only for Nordic region, they explained it all on their blog where they also sent a message for “paranoid” users as they called them. I thought, if I gave it all this time I can wait a little bit longer, but then one of my friends (@sahinovic) gave me a good pointer to go in right direction with using custom ROM, Nordic for example? So this is where I got my idea.
I want 2.1 update now!
Please note steps below will get you Android 2.1 update, but AFAIK you’ll also lose your warranty
1. Root your phone
If you don’t have your phone rooted, this can now be done in single click. Get X10 Root and follow instructions on screen.

I’m completely out of time, but I gotta tell you about this one.
My touchscreen adventures with w960
As I remember I got w960 in February last year. I really take great care of this phone, but touchscreen stopped working twice already in this as some might say short period of time. I’m one of them btw.
First time it stopped working I was sitting in a chair which FYI was incredibly low, I dropped out of my hand, it hit the floor (with some sort of rug on it). My colleague at the time is driving us home from work, rain is … ballistic, insane trash containers are on the streets, aaah mayhem!
I grab my phone to take few pictures or something, touchscreen is not reacting … I restart it, it’s still not working. We’re going through this lake, car is about to stop running. Ok now I hard restart, nah still not working. I curse and swear at it for the rest of the way back home and keep threatening it that I’ll switch to Nokia.
Find a solution
I think about going to Zagreb or Belgrade just for few hours and go to official Sony Ericsson centre to have it fixed within half an hour. It’s a long story but my w960’s hometown is Wien, you can’t even buy in Bosnia. Nevertheless, after contacting Sony Ericsson in Zagreb, they give me this company in Mostar (I won’t name anyone) and that they’ll handle it just fine. I send it to them, they had to order stuff from Zagreb, cuz as the “boss” said, this phone is a collectors item. Yeepee.

Here’s a quick update just so you think I’m not doing anything.
A week ago I got my Sony Ericsson W960i it’s a complete beast so I’m still trying to tame it :) I’ll post a video of it and it’s capabilites and features in shortest period. Second hosting has been upgraded, so lots of space, and from now on emails you get here, will be 1gb.
Besides that all, I’m working on putting up the forum, because as I see it, you wanted forum so you’ll get it :)
There, little something, so you know what’s/something’s happening ;)
