If you’re kicking the SE XPERIA X10 (which was recently rooted, we might add), you can look forward to getting an over-the-air update to Froyo in the “coming weeks” according to Sony Ericsson. Hopefully the upgrade will bring some much needed speed to the X10, as many find the clunky TimeScape interface to be a bit on the slow side. Here’s what was said:
Many of you have been asking about the software update coming to the Xperia X10 this summer and we are pleased to share the details of it today.
This update will be gradually rolled out across our markets over the coming weeks, pending the completion of quality approvals for individual markets and operators. The first updates are now live across selected markets. Please check with your local Sony Ericsson customer support when the upgrade will be available for your market and network.
When the update is available in your market you will receive a message in the notification bar of your X10. The easiest way to get the new software is to accept this update you can use your mobile network connection or a WiFi connection for the download.
