Hi guys, I recently have bought SE X8 and updated to Android 2.1. I'm still learning android, because I had olny WM phones, but I want to help to develop a way to root our Shakira device.

Rather than trying to make a custom rom shouldn't we first try to root it?

No. This thread is about cooking custom roms. Go find a root solution somewhere else.

No? We know how to boot custom roms (or so the OP says) so all we need to do is make a custom rom.

As for root, we have to start from scratch. And like I said, this thread is for cooking roms. Please don't post if you have nothing to contribute.

You know how much easier will it be to build a custom rom, install it , test it , tweak it if we have a root access.
Now if someone wants to build a custom rom they will have to downgrade to 1.6 and start from there
Also now xperia x10 has got recovery , we might be able to get it but again we need root for that!
Just my opinions

After reading the bootloader cracking thread in x10 forum,what i understand is Bootloader is inside nand which locked no way to read or write.
but maxfron was able to read the nand and i think they are searching for a way to write

Umm. You've got it backwards. If you've got a custom rom, then it is piss easy to gain root. Well that's the theory.
