the x10 bootloader
This is Burak, from İstanbul/Turkey and sorry about my first post here
But I need very urgent response about my issue...
I have a question about mu xperia... I got a Xperia X10i with Locked Bootloader (Cannot be unlocked).... So, the 1st question is;
İs there any way to unlock the bootloader?
ive been having issues with the thing too.... tried like 4 different flashtools. the issue i keep getting is that it says bootloader cannot be permanently unlocked. on 2.3. so i tried going back to 2.1 and using the xrecovery instead of CWM recovery. with 2.1 and xrecovery installed and working i tried again and suprise... it told me my bootloader was unlocked but couldnt be permanently unlocked. so then i got confused and gave up.
that being said im also using feralab v30 final. 2.3.9 and havent had any issues yet. its MUCH MUCH faster then stock 2.3. did not need a bootloader unlock. has a lot of extra tweeks. comes with superuser and whatnot so its prerooted. a cleaning tool. overclock tool. the only trick i learned is that on the website it has a ftf or zip from the kernel. it will tell u for a locked bootloader to use the zip from recovery... but from xrecovery you cant install a kernal and cwm recovery. so use the ftf and flashtool anyways. put the rom on the sd card. flash the ftf of the kernel with flashtools. on reboot keep pressing back button and cwm will open. wipe cache and install the rom. it does it all for you pretty much. there is a 4.0 rom yes and ive tried it. i get a loading loop because of the bootloader being locked. 2.3.9 is the highest ive been able to get so far with any decent stability and speed. but its better then 2.1 or the laggy 2.3 stock rom. also works with most newer apps anyway. 2.1 doesnt even have netflix or text plus. so unless anyone can chime in and help with the bootloader i suggest the newest feralabs rom. i used the general every day one instead of the gaming one. just fyi.
