Xperia X10 root details “imminent”

Android RootOkay, we know that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 root has been achieved, but what we’ve been lacking are the details. However, it appears that the coders from xda-developers are very close to releasing the instructions.

Jerpelea says that the root release is “imminent” with instructions to follow shortly. To prepare for root, he says you need to download three files (attached after the jump). They are at the final stages of refining the process, but encouragingly he says that setup is easy and should take less than 5 minutes. We’ll bring you further details as it happens, but until then click through for the files that you need.

Preparatory files for Xperia X10 root:

Flash Tool
R2BA020 (for Flash Tool)
R1EA018 (for Flash Tool)(SO-01B ROM)

Via xda-developers.

And we’ll sure hope that this rooting method works on the X10 Mini/Mini Pro as well.

Hi! R1EA018 (for Flash Tool)(SO-01B ROM) is removed from Hotfile. Please, can you share it again? Many thanks!

So if this can be rooted does that mean I could install Froyo on my X10?

@estebantet – Sorry about that, try the new file I’ve linked in.

@ Busby – Yes it does!

@Busby: The Root does not mean you can install a Froyo Rom. For this there is needed some more work at the Bootloader. So at the moment, with “only” root yóu cant install custom roms, but this is a big step to get custom roms 😀

Please respect jerpelea at xda’s wishes and don’t mirror his files.
he contributed to us, the least we can do is show him some respect.

Read it here:
“please do not mirror i want to have download count”

Legend112, I respect Jarpelea and all xda’s developers, so I will donate some money for them (again) when the root process is completed.
About the files, I think they are property of Sony Ericsson, not Jarpelea, so I am free to share it with everybody (you included). We do not want to wait for download two files from a private server.
Now you can choose the download link, in the same way you can choose if give or not a donation.
Please, excuse my English.

12 estebantet June 27, 2010 at 5:12 PM
