    I would've liked them to use E-ink rather than the conventional oled colour screen you can't see in bright sunshine.

    I'm selling mine. Along with my Kindle Fire so hopefully I can cobble enough cash together to buy either a Metawatch, Pebble watch or iPod Nano 6th Generation.

    Took it to watch Hut in my local shopping Centre and they put a strap onto the LiveView for £3.99.

    You could try reflashing the firmware on the LiveView. Mine stays connected all the time.

    I'm using Beanstalk 4.2.2. Are you pressing the power button on the LiveView till the led flashes red and green? Then go into the app on the phone and select LiveView and it should pair up.

    I've got it working on my Note and it doesn't disconnect unless I switch off Bluetooth.

    Still waiting for the v1 clip, Sony wrote my address down wrong and was sent elsewhere.

    I'm not actually sure if it's compatible With Jellybean. I've got the Beanstalk Rom which is a 4.2.2 based rom and when you search for the LiveView on my Note it can't found it on Bluetooth.

    Does LiveView work with Jelly Bean 4.x.x?
    I've got three devices.

    SG Note N7000 Running Custom Rom (BeanStalk 4.2.2)

    Huawei Ascend G300 Running Stock generic 4.0.3 ICS

    Samsung Galaxy S Player (MP3 Media Player) Running stock 2.3.6 Gingerbread

    The only one I can get the LiveView to work with is the Huawei Ascend G300.


    On the Note I can download the LiveView app but when I switch Bluetooth on it they can't see each other despite the phone being in discoverable mode.

    Is it possible that because I'm running a rooted phone with Custom rom the LiveView won't connect or would it not matter whether I flash it to stock it just won't work with JB?

    Should I downgrade to ICS?

    I think that Sony Smart Watch addresses the problems of the LiveView. I was annoyed they dropped official Facebook and Twitter Support which was one of the reasons I bought one.

    I rang Sony Ericsson and they are going to send me the V1 clip that slides through the velcro strap, should be receiving it in the next few days.

    Will post my thoughts when I get it.

    To be honest I'm not bothered about charging the unit when it's attached to the velcro strap.

    Which clip do you get? I got a V2 closed back clip and I can't attach the device to the velcro strap. Most reviews I've seen have the V1 which is a square and you thread the strap through it.

    Just Bought a Live View
    My Live View arrived today and I tried to switch it on and it wouldn't switch on, I thought the battery is probably flat so I put it on charge, I couldn't use the supplied charger as it was a European 2 pin charger and I live in the UK and use 3 pin plugs.

    I left it for the 2 hours as the manual told me to, but the led was still red. I decided to try and use the charger that came with it using a shaver adapter, but that didn't do the trick either. I also performed a firmware upgrade but didn't seem to make any difference.

    Then I unplugged it will wouldn't switch on. It would only switch on when the charger was plugged on.

    The display when the device is switched on shows that the battery is charging, but it seems its not holding a charge.

    Is the left button supposed to do anything it seems it can't be pressed.

    Apart from sending it back to Amazon is there anything else I can do?

    I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 to pair with, which pairs quite well.

  14. phil8715 added a post in a topic Is your bootloader unlocked?   

    I've further looked into it and it seems the phone's firmware version is higher than one that is needed.

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1599401

    My firmware revision number is: 1600.3013.8107.11502

    My hardware revision number is: 112.1402.2.1

    Is it still possible?
