Xperia X10 RootDespite the good news that we brought to you yesterday, regarding the successful Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 root, there are still many detractors who refuse to believe it has been done. To put the issue to bed once and for all, one of the coders (biktor_gj) has released a video that shows this is no photoshop.

They also once again urged patience and will only release information once they’re ready. The good news is that not one phone has been bricked in this process, the worst that has been achieved is an endless loop despite trying their best! Hopefully that should lay people’s concerns to rest once the full tutorial is released. Check out the video evidence after the break.

Could anyone explain me why it is interesting or so cool to root an android?
I see the idea of ‘cracking’ a PSP, but i don’t get the point of rooting a x10…

Once the unit is rooted, custom ROMS can be built on it. So for example 2.2 could be ported to the phone even if Sony won’t do it.

i don’t care if there is a chance to brick my phone! it will be a good excuse to buy another phone! “oh shit! i broke it! i should buy a different phone!” ;P

one of the best reasons for me is to use apps that allow me to connect my laptop to my phone 3G “tethering”

were is the problem with the current android version?
i dont have any problems when i use my x10 as modem 🙂

You dont need root for thethering. If you use the X10, search the market for an app called EasyThether.

Download PDAnet you can tether just fine now.

I’m still gonna root mine though 😉

What Theme or App/Launcher? is installed for the cool 3d effect? You will see it at 1min 03 sec in the video.

@ germany (about to be beaten on Sunday)

You bought a Crapple? Yeah you are right no hope for you 🙁

It’s ADWLauncher, you have it on market

13 Sgt.EddieWinslow June 24, 2010 at 11:32 PM


its the ADW launcher, you can get it in the market

Go to the market place and search for “ADW.Launcher” it was made by anderweb and looks very similar to the froyo launcher. It also has dozens of settings to customise to make the experience exactly what you want.

17 Nicolas June 25, 2010 at 8:28 PM

18 Nicolas June 25, 2010 at 8:34 PM

(mainly because my UK 3 phone has been loaded with all sorts of shite that is draining the battery)

19 eiabea June 26, 2010 at 9:34 AM

Could anybody promise that the battery will last longer if we have root access? 😛

20 nark September 17, 2010 at 4:26 PM
