How to update the Build Number .42 to .62 (Philippines)

Hi! I'm from Philippines, I would like to ask how to update the build number of my Xperia Neo V because I'm scared that all of my file can be deleted once I update it on my own. Also, I go to the nearest SE Service Center here in Philippines, and they told me that the update for build number .42 to .62 is not yet available in the Philippines. Is that true? since, the only requirement/s in updating the build number is the PC Companion,please help me on this.. I love SE!

you have 2 options

either

1) wait

or

2) manually update your phone, this could void your warranty

Hi Sir Uliwooly, Thank you so much.

The step/s stated above is the manual method to update my phone? What is my second option? to go to the SE Service Center then they will be the one to do those things. I'm scared that this might void my warranty to SE. Again, thank you in advance for providing me assistance..:smileyhappy:

Re: How to update the Build Number .42 to .62 (Philippines)

lets continue here so that it can help others
seus is sony ericsson update service
and updating does not results in deletion of data... for backing up ur apps follow uliwooly's method shown above


as i told u in message u can install your update via pc companion also, moreover it is showing that an update is available as u said so that is good
during update memory card is unaffected so don't worry , still if u feel , u can remove ur memory card and then perform the update
just connect ur mobile to pcc and follow  the follow the instruction
