Smile (C5306) USA/Canadian users.

Hi guys. I am not from Canada/USA and do not plan to go there.

My question is the does the C5306 have a unlockable boot loader?

Please do not answer unless you know this answer.

As far as I know the 5306 is not sold in the USA, at least is not that easy. A few months ago I went to a Sony store (located on fashion valley mall) and nobody knew about the SP. It is sold in Mexico but it is carrier branded (Telcel)

(I got a cheap 5303 and i bought It. There is no LTE available on my city and I didn't want a locked bootloader)

Default Reasons.

You can buy C5306 from Sony apparently (found it on the online store).
I'm proposing if we can't unlock the boot-loader on this model then we may as-well disable flashing in CWM in BoardConfig.mk for CyanogenMod (TARGET_OTA_ASSERT_DEVICE) to stop people from flashing it on a device it won't work on..

Anyway if you've got a C5306 please tell find out the details

Anybody else?
