I was thinking to myself if I were the CEO of SE the first thing that I would do is opening the bootloader and giving GB to x10. Some companies started to put bootloader follwing the SE path. Now what they are going to do.

ANDROID IS READY TO (FREE)


Also, please note that you may void the warranty of your phone if you unlock the boot loader. See your phone’s warranty statement for details. Additionally, due to the modified phone software, Sony Ericsson’s repair network may not be able to properly test and repair your phone according to our normal procedures. Consequently, if Sony Ericsson does perform a warranty repair, Sony Ericsson may charge you a handling fee for any additional incurred costs due to your modification of the software.

Therefore, you should only unlock the boot loader of your phone if you are an advanced developer with good knowledge of the technology and risks involved. We strongly recommend that standard users NOT unlock the boot loader, as it is not needed. We are proud to deliver great phone experiences through our rigorously tested and official software releases.

Thats very good news, even the x10 dont get the unlocked bootloader all this will help our devs to learn more about se and make easier to them the cracking of the bootloader

Guys, sorry to disappoint you, but there are only two possibilities:

1.) the london drug cartel spoiled the drinking water around SE headquarters with a ****load of LSD (accidently?)

2.) Some bastard hacked blogs.sonyericsson.com and spreads ****.

*sry, joking*

Seriously, who is this at SE that turns a whole company's concept upside-down?!

Very good news and the first time I suggest to buy another XPERIA phone!

edit: Did they perhaps recognize that their upcoming phones'll have a hard time around the competition due to hardware specs? I think it makes sense. Their flag ships don't look all that good (if you look at the hardware only!) and the XPERIA Play received some quite bad reviews out there. So to stand out from the crowd, they open the bootloader while every other company starts to lock it up. Only my suggestion.

Nexus 7 (2013) - constantly changing...
Nexus 4 - constantly changing...
Samsung Galaxy Nexus (GSM) -- AOKP
ASUS Eee Pad Transformer -- Revolver 4 by Gnufabio (daily driver)
SE Xperia X10i -- T.E.A.M ROM by Pvyparts & iridaki
SE Xperia X1i -- X2 port by jerpelea/FXP & XDAndroid

I would prefer if our devs could crack it before. Would be a lot more satisfying (even if I didn't contribute anything )
