Okay, the time has come. The wizards over at xda-developers have publically released the instructions on how to root the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. The process appears to be simple enough and hopefully it will be a brick-free process too.
A big thanks to Jerpelea, biktor_gj and Bin4ry over at xda-developers for first obtaining root and secondly providing a method that everyone can use. Once you root your phone, please head over to the xda-developers and make a donation to these guys. It’s the least they deserve for cracking a phone that many thought may be impenetrable.
