Bootloader unlock now available to Xperia X10 owners

X10 Bootloader UnlockedBack in July, we reported that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 had seen its bootloader unlocked (or at least bypassed). Since then, there’s been very little news whilst the devs have been beavering away to get a solution for us to use on our own phones.

Well that milestone has now come as the_laser from xda-developers has just released the toolset to permanently “unlock” the bootloader of the Xperia X10. To get this up and running click here, but be aware it only runs on Android 2.1 for now.

Thanks Sharath!

  5. hi, romULen chip is available for the x10, it is bigger and comes with its own self sticking solder pads so fitting only takes about 10 mins.
    once the romULen chip is fitted your phone will be so fast.
    The bootloader will also be lockenundone as its a configuration of the thing.
    This wilont fix the bootloader though as its locked down so tight you need the key like realy badly.
    The kernel is a bogus fella, like the guy on the side of KFC, he is not realy a cournel, so i doubt you fhone will have one so dont worry about it.

    Screen is good enough so dont sweat it, if you need it better buy some glassers!

  8. why would anyone want to switch back? I just froze Crashmonitor in TB, and my phone suddenly went turbo speed, there is a lot of floatware in the release!

  9. Hi. Im running CyanogenMod MiniCM7 on my X10 Mini. I did this a few weeks ago before the bootloader unlock was announced.

    Can some explain to me the benefits of unlocking the bootloader over using CWM and MiniCM?

    Does unlocking the bootloader allow full vanilla Android roms to be installed?
