No UK Generic yet though...

Posted by Mizzle
Too bad one is using a UK prototype. Even worse is that it's still not up on EMMA.

Posted by tai020381
Sigh...when will they release officially...

Posted by BIG-Stan
I flashed the firmware yesterday and the phone got a bit faster.
I just dont understand what is that its taking so long for SE to release updates? They could've released such small update a couple of weeks AFTER the release and not just a couple of months...
The custom roms are so much better than the se crap.
I think it's unacceptable that the panels lag so much when they were supposed to be THE killer feature of x1. IMO they're pretty much useless, not even an eyecandy with such horrible lag
I'm still impressed by that phone and that is ONLY because of xda-developers. These guys are gods

going back to my custom rom...

@ BIG, there's an R2A version of custom ROM up in XDA (its a german ROM tho). I think Jack would be cooking up an English version soon

Posted by BIG-Stan
thanks, I've seen it...but I'm waiting for itje to cook a wwe rom
What I'm looking for is Duttythroys rom! His roms rock!!! I hope he'll release it this or next week, than I'll be set

Posted by mobilemodman
yep, I'm still sitting on the original R1A ROM, was waiting for a good lite ROM to flash to, seems like R2A has answered my prayers .

Jack's ROM seems to be perfect for me tho, maybe I will wait till a few R2A's are out.

I'm not sure if I should just get a light ROM or get one with TF3D, because the TF3D ones have quite a few bugs in them.

Have you tried the TF3D ones?

Posted by BIG-Stan
yeah, I tried itjes roms. Touch-it 2.2 and the Touch-it MAX4G. The latter one is better but yeah there are some annoying bugs such as panels freeze ups.
Personally I like the tf3d stuff better than the regular se stuff. In tf3d for example I can see all of my email accounts at the same time (mail tab), which is very usefull since I dont have to open the messaging app.
There are also other neat enhancements such as larger menus and volume control thingie.

How can you reinstall the firmware?
Am getting my X1 is up-to-date and no other option is available.

Posted by BIG-Stan
I flashed the custom rom way. I already downloaded itjes rom where you get a folder. In that folder there is a file "signed.nbh" or something like that.
Now all you have to do is to rename the file that you downloaded (SE r2 update) to the same name as the one in the folder (bla.nbh) and run the ruu utility.

Posted by cadcad
I still can't get it.
Where do you download the SE R2 update file from?
and where to get the itjes ROM folder from?

[ This Message was edited by: cadcad on 2009-01-28 18:08 ]

Posted by BIG-Stan
everything is in the ROM section at xda-developers. http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=471

If you want to flash the official update and you dont have a button to continue then go to the ROM section and download the new firmware http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=475482

Now download some custom ROM eg itjes: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=473133

Whenever its all done ad you unpacked everything, you'll end up with a folder for the custom rom and one file for the officoal update. Now take this file and rename it to Kovsimg.nbh. Copy that file inside the custom rom folder and delete the other ruu_signed.nbh file.

Start the ROMUpdateUtility.exe and follow the instructions...
after a while you'll be done. Now you can set up the phone again.
But I'd recomend a backup before flashing since all your stuff will be wiped out except for the micro sd card.
Hope that heplfull

Isn't it R2AA008?

Posted by cadcad
Thank you BIG-Stan for the explanation.
Am actually downloading and will try to update with the US version since the UK generic version isn't yet available.

Posted by masseur
UK generic R2A now finally available via XDA developers (but not on SEUS yet)

Posted by tai020381
Anyone had downloaded the UK R2A version and care to post it up somewhere else for grab other than rapidshare(I hate this "free user" thingy)?? Thanks.

Posted by swat08
any idea when the R2A for generic uk will be available on seus?

Posted by michael the mage
Yes, its version 008 for Generic UK that is (not 006!). I see NO improvement whatsoever! This is even crappier than before!

The camera sucks big time. Still NO zoom in 3 MP camera (what a fraking crap!) and the response is slow and the picture quality seems even less!
And also, NO selection for NO Camera Sound anymore!

The overall performance seems slower and I consider strongly to revert back. I just checked into it for 30 minutes but so far nothing good to report back. I think they (SE) didn't do anything good to it.

Just a lot of work reinstalling all again. Not worth the upgrade so far at all for me!

Of course, updated radio, browser, etc... but nothing usable for me. Still NO flash, neither in opera nor IE.

Very, very disappointed.... again with SE. Perhaps its really time to move on to a different brand now.

So I think that all who "dream" of SE giving the Windows 6.5 sometime later.... I think only... 'dream on'. Not with SE, period!

damn it. was sooo looking forward to it. had high hopes.
honestly not that surprised. SE nvr fails to disappoint.
set really low expectations and SE will meet them.

not sure if i should update anymore....


Posted by mattiL
And the bluetooth bug (BT turns off) isn't fixed either.
Happened twice for me already, Swedish R2AA006.



Posted by cadcad
For those who are interested, the UK Generic version is out now guys.

Remember those upgrades are not official.

Posted by mobilemodman
@ michael, i have flashed my x1 with the uk generic R2A rom aswell, however I do so very slight improvements, but do not experience any of the problems that you have pointed out above

Aha, allright than.
So you have official UK_Generic R2A?

Posted by michael the mage
Of course he doesn't! He has swedish! I just tried, there is NO offical generic UK 2 yet on SEUS for public update!

Posted by bahamas1
Another change in this ROM R2:

Now Opera is the default browser, before that was internet explorer.


Posted by michael the mage
You can change that back using XperiaTweak. Its a freeware program that is VERY usefull. With this you can also disable this crappy phone sleep mode when on a call. At least if you need to see the screen, you should disable this.

Posted by bahamas1
Yes you have right, Xperia Tweak is a musthave.

I have change the default program with Resco File Explorer

Posted by BigFeat
It seems like all the web files are still associated with Opera even after defaulting it to Explorer with XperiaTweak.

Posted by cadcad
My X1 never gets into the sleep mode when am in a call and i didnt tweak it!
That actually annoys me. It begins clicking on the screen here and there.

That's actually good!

Changing this with Resco Explorer seems to be ok, but now after more and more try, registry is corrupt, Opera work like a charm, I will make a hard-reset and try another way.

Posted by doministry
Why would you redirect files from Opera to IE?
Opera is much better... IMO.

Posted by bahamas1
I work better with IE, I think it's personal IE or Opera.

Are you perhaps using XperiaTweak?
And it's option to NOT turn off display during call ?

He didnt Tweak it...

SEUS keeps on telling me that i have the latest Firmware installed
Its not updating it to R2AA.

I have R1AA UK generic

Any idea ?

Thank you

Posted by jcbos
I have installed the update through seus (Netherlands) and to me it looks like the battery life has increased. I dont have to charge it now daily as it only has one point left. Now 2 days without charging and still full.

what bugged me the most was that I lost all my messages. This never happened on earlier SE phones. And seus telling me that I have to backup the data while there is no good backup program available.
Or can someone tell me a good backup program for messages and installed programs. Agenda and phonenumbers are synced with outlook, so no backup is necessary for that.

Posted by swat08
^spb backup. u can backup stuff like msgs, contacts,email u can backup safely. but i recommend reinstalling ur apps again.
