I posted directions on how to fix adb on page 4 of this thread if you are getting
adb errors.

Release Notes: Xperia X10 Utility V 1.5

*Update Read Me*
1.5 Posted See Change Log two post down
*End of Update*

I noticed that a lot people are having a hard time flashing themes to their phones.

With that in mind I decided that we need a simpler way to get themes on to our phones and have backups of the original files in case we need to go back to stock for any reason.

Some of the options in this Utility do require that you have root!

While my plan was to make a theme flashing utility I decided to add in a few extra options, as of right now you can …

1. Backup your framework
2. Restore the original theme files (Pre-installed in a folder for this app)
3. Flash a new theme to your phone
4. Backup all your installed apps to your SD Card.
5. Restore your backed up apps from the SD Card to your phone.
6. Install Market Fix
7. Pre-Install Themes Quick Install

Right now this Utility Supports installing Theme files that have Framework-res.apk, Phone.apk, and Phonebook.apk

Next update will add support for themes that edit Time scape and Media scape.

Future Updates will add support to …
1. Backup Apps to PC
2. Restore Apps from PC
3. Root (X10 and X10 Mini / Mini Pro)
4. Backup & Restore SMS messages
5. Download Themes
6. Pre-Installed Themes Quick Install Avail in 1.5
7. Change Startup Animation
8. Uninstall Apps (System and normal)
9. Support for 2.xx
10. Much Much More ….

Directions –
1. Make sure USB Drivers are installed and device is connected
2. Unzip Files
3. Run x10.bat



Inside the unzipped folder you will find 4 folders that are called theme 1 - 4 they are empty right now.
Download the them you want to use and extract its files to the top level of any one of the 4 folders then select

Option 1 Flash Theme and then select Theme folder you want to flash and it will do it for you.

Credits and Thank You :

Thanks You Golfben / Che123 it was his G1 Utility that gave me the idea to make this for the X10 and he has allowed me to re-write his scripts and update them for the X10 so we can have a utility to make updating files easier.

Also Thank you to Bin4ry & Jerpelea who’s hard work on rooting and root method inspired me to create this app…

Thank you to all the Theme Makers who work so hard on the themes that we all want to download and use to change or improve the look of our x10.

I am looking to add in some quick install themes, so theme makers if you don't mind me making your theme a quick install theme just let me know and I will add it to next update.

Original G1 PC Suite Che123, Thanks again for all the hard work and making it possible for me to make something just as nice for the X10.

Here is a quick guide on how to use the basic flash theme option in X10 Utility.

First Extract the downloaded file...



Then Extract your downloaded theme into 1 of the 4 theme folders



Inside your folder your theme files should be like this



Next Select X10.bat



It will open to Main Menu



Next Select Option 1



Next Select your theme folder



It will have you press any key to start



It will install the theme for you and reboot your phone (If framework was updated)



When it is done just hit any key and it will take you back to the Main Menu.

Now installing a theme is quick and easy.

ok i tried it again with adbwinapi.dll copied to the theme 1 directory and it seemed to work apart from the first line which stated file path not specified however it seemed to copy all the files in the theme folder. I might just copy bother the adb and adbwinapi.dll files just incase. I found the adbwinapi.dll file in the /android-sdk-windows/tools folder.
