    Apparently after a quick google search, these are the new features:
    * New Facebook™ and RoadSync™ panels on the standby screen.
    * Improvements in phone start up time.
    * Enhanced performance and functionality for YouTube™, Facebook™, RoadSync™ and Barcode Reader.

  11. i cant download this version, i use the software updater from sony ericsson... But it tells me i already have the latest version, but when its not the one you mention its the one from april... Anyone knows what to do?

  12. You probably have a carrier branded phone, and will have to wait until they make it available. I got my Vivaz from Virgin Mobile, and my update came later.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I dont see any carrier logo... but i would wait till i can, hopefully soon

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hm, I recently debranded mine using FastGSM and using Generic Trade United Kingdom R2EA021, I'm sure this is the exact same changelog that mine listed.

  15. There was a bug in the old software: Can some see if it still exists in the new one.

    1) Add Perth to the World Clock
    2) Set time zone of the phone to Perth (GMT + 8.00)
    3) Check the time on the World clock and the phone.. Is it different even though both are the same location and timezone.

    See http://wpool.com/RcoVA0

    ReplyDelete
  16. PS The location above is Perth, Australia

  17. now I am waiting R3 release containing Symbian^3

  18. if your phone is stable and working fine, not worth updating. Only consider if you had some problems. Interface feels a bit faster, but I guess it is nothing, just that I am slower today :-))

    ReplyDelete
  19. To the above poster about not seeing a carrier logo. Mine doesn't have any evidence of branding either, other than having GPRS/MMS settings pre-installed for Virgin, but I still had to wait for the update.

    Naveed, shows Perth as an hour behind if I do that.

    BTW this update broke Roadsync for me (app won't open at all), will probably have to do a master clear and lose everything...

  20. Continueing on from my last post, all I want from the next update is system wide kinetic scrolling. How hard can it be to implement? Any half decent app has implemented it, and it still annoys me that half of the UI uses it and the other half doesn't.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hi. I´m considering debranding my phone using some online service. Once it is done, will I be able to use SEUS to receive future updates as a free Sony mobile, or will SEUS still recognize my carrier and put the corresponding firmware (branded) ??

  22. Sorry off-topic, DIVX Player released for S60v5!!! Tested, it doesn't really works on our Vivaz for real movies, maybe for short clips... Sorry

  23. Yesterday i flash this firmware with setool, and found a couple of bugs.

    first, sometimes if i play a 720p video in multimedia in portrail mode the video doesnt play good,, in landscape mode my screen gets divided and if I close multimedia, the screen continues divided in phone and i have to restart phone.

    second, some times an Full Memory message appears on screen.

    But well, some bugs will be fixed on next update.

    There is a r2fa013 for AT&T maybe I will flash my vivaz with this version, just for fun :D

  24. Seems to be true that this version of firmware exists. (http://img253.imagevenue.com/img.php?image=19073_14082010190_122_172lo.jpg)
    Even so in SE site does't appear (http://www.sonyericsson.com/update/?lc=en&cc=gb)
    It's only for Greece ?

  25. I've checked on Sony Ericsson's website, software updates sections and this firmware version is an update for the Vivaz pro, not the Vivaz, that's why it says that your phone has the latest software version.

    ReplyDelete
  26. This update is for vivaz.. i think it is still not available for all carriers all unlocked phones can update without any problem.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Even locked phones can. I updated my VIVAZ locked in VODAFONE RO to R2EA021 from 22-07-2010
