Is the only way to get into fastboot through key combinations?

HELP! Using same process as I did with my own X10 last weekend, I tried to get the new Branded Dual Touch update onto my GF's X10. I got repeated update process failed right at end of process. I kept retrying including closing everything else and nothing. On 4th try, Icon on phone screen of Triangle with exclamation mark in it over top of picture of dead phone

No safe mode, no recovery! no repair!

Cool Do NOT want to void warranty
I Do NOT want to void warranty
While that may work, I tried something else that looked promising but failed.
I uninstalled SEUS and installed latest. Chose option Factory Reset & Update;

Right at end of process, I get error screen:
The Update was unsuccessful
The installation failed
Please disconnect the phone and make sure that the battery is fully charged before trying again. If the problem persists, please contact support.'
for more information and help please see sonyericsson com/support
Link never opens

No better off than before.
I will take it to retailer tomorrow and this will form more on my case for service provider to give me new hardware.

Hi!

Try this method:

1. Download the newest FlashTool
2. Download the 1.6 firmware
3. Rename the boot.sin to kernel.sin
4. Flash the 1.6 firmware with FlashTool (the exclamation mark remains)
5. Update the phone with SEUS

I succeeded with this method.
Sorry for my english.

Cool Solved
Safe Mode didn't work, Repair didn't work, Factory Reset & Update also failed. What I did to finally solve it: I did a clean new install on PCC & SEUS on my laptop instead of desktop. 3 failures and for no apparent reason it finally worked on 4th attempt
Thanks all for suggestions.
