Let's get the story started
Today I plugged my phone to my computer and PC companion said: update available. I tried to update in PCC, but it failed at the end.

So, I used SEUS. Same story: update available, flashmode, and it works.

update 23:33
Raw files from SEUS:
154,42 MB http://www.mediafire.com/?4h0t9g4a1gh9g9z
15,04 MB http://www.mediafire.com/?z8ih2k5x92fr7aa

Now available as .ftf file, ready to flash, thanks to thomasafca for that.

I didn't think of anything special. But I just saw the 3D camera application, and I thought hmmm... 2.3.4, 3D photo's? Let's check out the about phone menu... surprise:

They said the update would be in october, I guess a mistake was made by SE :D

Info: Xperia Neo, unbranded, global(?) was on latest official firmware, non-rooted, bootloader relocked (twice :$) and I live in The Netherlands (system language is Dutch

As I said: non-rooted, so only pics, no screenshots (EDIT: LOL wtf, I'm being dumb, screenshot is built in in this update), Android SDK won't work.

Can anyone confirm if the nasty AAC file bugs of Android V2.3.3 were fixed?

Basically songs with different artists would appear in separate listings of the same album for some reason.

hey thats cool,
but my SEUS dont say that there aren't newer updates :(
maybe it is because my bootloaders are unlocked and i am running DooMKernel with root?
and is there a way to update to 2.3.4 wihout loosing data? flashtool?
(i have already downloaded the .tft file)

i think that relocking the bootloaders and flashing the tft file with flashtool without the userdata.sin is the solution?

Does this firmware support Automatic Brightness?

Nope. Still not option for automatic brightness.

EDIT: I've posted a guide on how to install 2.3.4 and root your phone. :)

As SE says I have a Scandinavian version, try to change you country/version code to this one to try updating via SEUS: http://twitpic.com/6nq94i

I quote Marcell and repeat his question: i am in the same situation as him, with unlocked bootloader and root;there is a way to update the phone without losing all data and root Access? If I simply flash the new firmware I think that I will lose all, is correct?
