FlashTool to be used for rooting only?
I'm a bit confused after reading through many threads. Hopefully someone can tell me if I've got the following right:
I'm running an original 2.0.A.0.504, on a X10. What I want to have is the Eminence ROM. What I now believe I have to do:
step 1. Root my X10 (got it a few days ago, so no userdata issues)
step 2. Backup APN (telecom settings) data, so I will be able to make phone calls and use internet/3G/HDSPA afterwards
step 3. continue as this guy says. (oops, not allowed to post links yet, but it is post number 2059098 on androidforums dot com.
1. Can I use the FlashTool to do nothing but root my X10 (step 1)? It looks like the most convenient tool around. I understand that i must first install (and use) SEUS (sony ericson update service) to provide the right drivers.
2. If yes, is it unrootable?
3. Am I correct when I think that you cannot use this tool to flash custom roms like Eminence because they are not 'signed'?
Thanks for all your help.
