Xperia X10 rootedThere is some good news and some bad news. The good news is that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 has finally been rooted. jerpelea from xda-developers managed to gain root access yesterday. The bad news is that it was created and flashed using SETool, which requires its own hardware. Unfortunately, for now, it means that the root won’t be accessible to the wider Xperia X10 community (unless you own the SETool box).

Whilst this is disappointing, they guys are hard at work trying to figure out a cheaper (read: free) way to gain root access. For those wondering what root access will bring to your Xperia X10, then the answer is full control over your handset including the ability to load custom ROMs, relocate apps onto your memory card, complete backup of the phone as well as being able to run some special apps designed for rooted handsets. We’ll keep you posted on further developments.

Thanks rudra!

It appears that this may have been faked and xda have removed the thead so has the rooting been independently confirmed?
