satio-firmware-update

Sony Ericsson have rolled out another firmware update for the Sony Ericsson Satio, which should be available for all handsets. I’ve tested the update on my Vodafone branded handset and the update has been detected and installed. While I haven’t had time to test it fully yet, others have been saying the phone is faster with the update and it fixes the homescreen theme problem, where no shortcuts are being displayed, only the Sony Ericsson home screen theme displays correctly. Sony Ericsson have also rolled out an update for the Aino, which has also been experiencing issues, mostly with the touch screen. While no problems have been reported with the Yari, an update is also to come for the handset. It’s also noted on the Sony Ericsson Update page, that the handset does not need to be backed up, as the update does not affect handset data, but it is of course recommended to do so if possible anyway.

Update, the update has not fixed the homescreen theme problem. Other fixes, or unfixed bugs will be reported.

With the Satio being taken off many UK stores shelves it’s not surprising Sony Ericsson have rolled out an update very quickly. Unfortunately though, the update only appears to be for unbranded handsets. Just Another Mobile Blog reports updating an unbranded Satio, while no update was found for a Vodafone handset, which I can also confirm. Hopefully the update will be available quickly for all Satio handsets. The update has reportedly made the phones respond faster.

While the update has been released, many stores still haven’t put the phone back on the shelves. Although it seems, from further information, the issues only appear to affect the black model, so if you’ve seen the Satio still on sale, like I have, it’s likely the silver version they’re selling. On the same note, the Aino did not get pulled from shelves as confirmed by a Sony Ericsson spokesperson.
