user account control, the popup asking you wether you want to run this program or not (as admin or not)

Hi Maryland...

Before everyone asks, can you clarify whether or not this is compatible (ie 3G, etc..) with the X10a? I know there will be people asking multiple times, so rather than look later, I might as well save everyone some time.

Or, is it still recommended to wait for an official X10a firmware version of 2.1?

Thanks in advance for your help/advice and great job to everyone on XDA that is staying on top of things. Much appreciated.

UPDATE

Right, since this post is luckily quite visible on the first page, thought I should put down some impressions/info.

FLASHING: it's quite simple, follow the instructions in the first post, including the optional part at the bottom if you're having trouble. I did it on a laptop with XP Pro SP3 32-bit (with jre6u19 I think).

Worth mentioning: at some stage the batch file will come up with "Finish" - it is NOT DONE!! It might take another few minutes, it's only done when it says "Press any key to continue..." , WAIT UNTIL IT DOES SO then press Enter as instructed.

ROOTING: When you root it, you will most likely find that you have to untick/tick USB debugging on the phone a few times to get it working. I used this, only needed SuperOneClickv1.5.1-ShortFuse.zip .

IMPRESSIONS: it is a bit slow at first, but it gets better after half an hour or so. Battery life seems to have improved a LOT, although this can easily be a subjective impression. It's very "swish and pretty". And best of all, Angry Birds works! What more could you want?

OTHERS:
Barnacle worked straight away for me (without having to put in athwlan0), Titanium Backup worked after installing its version of BusyBox.

APPS YOU COULD REMOVE
jerpelea made an easy-ish to use command list for this. Thank him for all his work, or else! ;)
WARNING: you might want to move apps into a Temp/ folder inside /system/app/ just in case instead of removing them completely.. Apps I removed (and everything seems fine), will try to remove others at some stage:
SEMCSetupWizard.apk
playnowback.apk
playnowclient.apk
moxiermail.apk
playnowappinstaller.apk
SEMCTouchPalKoreanQWERTY.apk
PcCompanion.apk (this might be needed, but so far it looks ok)
quadrapop.apk
wisepilot.apk
creatouch.apk

EDIT: If you encounter the same issue, just remove the x86_64 Java Runtime from your computer and install get the 32bit Runtime in case you don't have it.

Doesn't work here.

Code:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: (PATH_HERE)
AMD 64-bit platform
        at java.lang.ClassLoader$NativeLibrary.load(Native Method)
        at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadLibrary0(Unknown Source)
        at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadLibrary(Unknown Source)
        at java.lang.Runtime.loadLibrary0(Unknown Source)
        at java.lang.System.loadLibrary(Unknown Source)
        at X10flash.main(X10flash.java:389)

btw, I just downloaded the thing, and executed the bat file, of course i use a x64 Windows 7, and both the 32bit and 64bit path fails with this UnsatisfiedLinkError.

If i'm right now in 1.6 (x10a) can i directly flash my phone to 2.1 with thoses files or do I have to do something else ?
( Because i don't understand why old 1.6 Firmware can not be flashed with this at the moment since you had to be in 1.6 to go to 2.1 )

You cannot flash 1.6 FW with this tool, but you can flash 2.1 FW to a 1.6 device.

    guyss...

    so can i use these files, from the first post, with my already updated 2.1 x10i to flash and get the global world firmware??

    I hope these files also work with a 2.1 OS as well and not just with 1.6

    and is there any problem if i use the same flash as in the 1st post instead of getting the latest version?? ( I dont want to get myself confused going through other posts n want to stick with one to get me across everything. i.e., flash with global FW and root)
    Yes
    Yes,
    As long as you understabd that root is a seperate process, at the bottom of 1st post.

    everyone, help. I was succeed flashing this global firmware once and rooted with z4root but problem comes when I try to reset factory settings. after factory settings done, my phone can't access the internet. I tried reset factory settings again for few times and it comes with the same problem, so I tried to un-root my phone. after that it still can't access the internet. so, I tried to reset again and it works. now my phone ca naccess internet again. the problem is...

    now I can't root my phone again. everytime I want to root my phone, it restarted when "aquiring root shell".

    I've tried to root using command and it gives the same problem.

    I've tried to flash again with this global firmware:
    1. download the global firmware file (which I already have because I ever flash with this)
    2. turn off the phone
    3. run the X10flasher.bat
    4. I choose windows 7 for 32-bit (which is my computer)
    5. plug the USB to my phone while holding the back button
    6. and then press any key
    7. the thing happen is my phone starts normally and the flash is not working (even if I don't press any key to continue my phone still stars normally)

    what to do? any solutions? many thanks if somebody can help me.
