R1JE001
- SEUS Version for 3-UK

Having this firmware re-flashed at a sevice centre slightly changed the cusotmisation from the SEUS version, I now have the colourful walkman phone style EMS emoticons (Text Message > Add Item > Add animation)... Also the 3-Player has been removed from the desktop, now it's just a direct link to the normal Sony Ericsson Music player as on non customised phones (it does have a new custom icon though). These changes could be added to the SEUS version, but I can no longer check as I have them.

Software versions:
EROM: R3A011

>*<<*<*

Where < and > represents pushing the joystick left and right respectively.

SEUS will currently install the following firmware revisions for UK phone brands:

Sony Ericsson Update Service

The firmware of the K610 can be upgraded either over the air by selecting Settings / Update Service / Search for update or via the more traditional (and potentially cheaper) method of the Sony Ericsson Update Service. In order to use SEUS you will need to have internet access (preferably Broadband) and attach your phone to your PC via the supplied USB cable.

Note that the required firmware update drivers are present in the following directory after installing SEUS:

C:Program FilesSony EricssonUpdate Servicedrivers

If you run into problems, you may wish to download and install Sun's Java Runtime Environment separately.

If the firmware update fails part way through, retry the SEUS. If the update consistently fails you will need to perform a Master Reset on your phone. It is likely that you will be required to perform a Reset All - a settings reset is unlikely to do the job. It is recommended to use a tool such as MyPhoneExplorer to create a backup of the data on your phone before performing a Master Reset. Note that you will still lose any games, themes or ringtones present in your phone's memory.

SEUS will currently install the following firmware revisions for UK phone brands:

K610
Unbranded UK (CDA102497/??) -
O2 UK (CDA102497/??) - R1JC002
Vodafone UK (CDA102497/??) -
Orange UK (CDA102497/??) -
3 UK (CDA102497/46) - R1KG001
T-Mobile (CDA102497/??) -

V630
Vodafone UK (CDA102514/2) - R1ED001

Third Party Update Services

Third party firmware updates are available from Wotan Server. The use of third party solutions will theoretically void your warranty (although in practice the phone vendor is unlikely to notice) so should only be used in preference to SEUS for debranding purposes or updating a problematic phone locked out of SEUS by the service provider.

I started this thread as I felt it was needed, I have added as much information as I have from the internet and my K610 on 3-UK.

Hopefully mwarner can maintain this firmware summary also, for the time being post your network, CDA and firmware version here and I'll try to update or pm me!

SEUS sucks bigtime lately,I mean what are they waiting for -should everyone sell their K800s because of so many functional problems.This R1ED01 firmware was developed for both DB 2020 phones(K800 & K610)with the certain structural differences concerning camera section mainly and so when K800 firmware will be uploaded I guess this goes for K610 also,until now nothing has been uploaded yet in SEUS Greece at least.
