The whole process sounded relatively straight forward. Once the screws were removed, the case parts were clipped together and needed to be pried open with a credit card.

He is also considering swapping the microUSB jack with a miniUSB one, as he doesn’t have enough miniUSB cables. Personally I’d just buy some more cables but then I’m not a hardcore ninja modder like McKebapp!

Sony Ericsson promises X10 updates

Sony Ericsson will continue to support the Xperia X10 Android smartphone throughout the lifespan of the handset. Despite some of the recent criticisms regarding Android 1.6, it says that a big update will land in H2 2010 (most likely a new version of Android) but it won’t stop there and will continue to develop for the phone to keep it fresh.
