Re: Unable to install or start phone software update components.

PC Companion hasn't been working properly, try using Update Service

http://www.sonyericsson.com/cws/support/phones/topic/updateserviceapplication/xperiax10?cc=gb&lc=en

if that doesn't work for you or your carrier/network is NOT releasing 2.1 you can debrand your phone using this method

note that your warranty wont  be valid anymore

Re: Unable to install or start phone software update components.

I am having the same problem, PC Companion stops and gives me the "Unable to install or start phone software update components." I have tried turning off firewalls, antivirus, tried it in safe mode with networking on three seperate computers without success. I get this same message everytime. I have been unable to locate this Update Software program that has been recommended, did sony ericsson remove it or what? Any suggestions? Thank you.

I didn't found the JRE_Installer-file so I went to java.com and installed latest java (1.7). Now the upgrade seems to be working very well (haven't completed yet).

Re: Unable to install or start phone software update components.

It worked really well I had no problems at all after that. The phone is now running the latest upgrade.
