i had the touch button flickering\overheat problems in my ST15i, but the service center guys fixed it with the so called 'calibration fix'.
do i lose the calibration fix, if i unlock bootloader, or install custom kernal/ roms.

btw, i have a rooted 4.0.2.A.0.42 xperia mini

Depends, if it is hardware or software calibration.
If software, then installing custom ROM will likely remove it.

i need to flash the ICS ROM on my mini, but it needs unlocked bootloader. i'm afraid to do it bcoz of this touch button issue. any idea, if the calibration is harware or software?

I am not aware of this, because I haven't had that problem myself, neither have I heard about it earlier.

Hello sonu,

I had the calibration fix done by the service center last December and then I went on to unlock the bootloader via test point method. Since then I've tried the various kernels and ROMs here on XDA and so far so good, the back/menu touch buttons have never misbehaved since then. I haven't tried any ICS ROMs though...
