This morning we reported that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10’s bootloader might have been cracked. We wasn’t sure given the number of hoax articles we’ve seen around the blogosphere today given that it is April Fools Day. Anyway, xda-developer zdzihu has confirmed that the Xperia X10 has indeed been cracked and that it was no April Fools joke.
More specifically he says the bootloader has been bypassed using the kexec/miniloader method, enabling you to boot custom kernels. He has released the first fully working custom kernel. He has been testing it for the last couple of days without any problems (not even a reboot). It looks like we will get access to a much wider range of custom ROMs for our X10 very soon!
