So i've tried different ways of doing it...
- rooted using "All in one solution by Mikevhl"
- download and installed xRecovery 0.3
- rebooted and spam BACK when SE letter comes up, nothing happened.

- Reset back to factory
- rooted the same way
- download BusyBox from Market, installed ans symlink the latest 1.19 BusyBox
- installed xRecovery 0.3
- rebooted, again, spamming BACK and nothing happen

I've tried having the USB cable plugged in, and unplugged. Both way give me the same thing... What else am i missing? UGH...

let me share what i did

after rooting... i downloaded the xrecovery rar file from here

then i downloaded Titanium backup from the market. Once installed i clicked "Problems?" on that app and it downloaded busybox

after busybox installed i then unpacked the xrecovery on my pc. it contains three files (chargemon busybox and xrecovery.zip)

i copied those three to my SD card.

On my phone i opened root explorer, opened sd card and selected those three files then clicked MOVE

set root explorer to mount R/W then go to system/bin and paste the three files there.

reboot and keep pressing the back key once the SE white logo apprears. VIOLA!

Hi you can use the flash tool for x10 mini, first root and it will automatically restart, then press ask for permissions, the the xrecovery button becomes avaible and finally press it . Just dont press the optimize button coz it's intended to jit the big xperia with v2 jit, if you press it your device will be stuck in an infinite loop and never get out of that without removing the battery cable inside your phone

I will try it tonight, but also faced another problem, after i re-mount it with RW, if i reboot, everything goes back to RO. I try to locate the equivalent of /etc/fstab in the android but i couldn't find it.

Does your phone's file-system permission stick after reboot?

Are you guys all using the 0.1 beta or the latest 0.3 releases?

Beware of the market busybox, I updated mine to .19 and it caused major problems.

I was using MiniCM, installed the market busybox and the phone looped. Also, when I was using Srom, I uninstalled some system apps (the usual stuff I don't use) and the phone rebooted and I lost my root... which meant that I couldn't get into recovery.

So maybe try pratyush_gamer's idea, should work, his knowledge has helped me!!

Still no go, tried titanium backup's busybox, tried to manually copy and paste those 3 files, tried to delete those 3 files and reinstall the xRecovery package...

I'm running 2.1.1.A.0.6 and Kernel 2.6.29 SEMCHost#1

Should i downgrade or something?

Did you upgrade using the below method? I'd and it worked for me.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=947290

I didn't do the manual recovery thing, I downloaded Bin4ry's flash tool

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=826455

It does everything for you root, flashing, JIT, recovery and remove system apps. Suggest you check it out.

These are the methods I used, let me know if it works

Oh and don't worry about the optimize button, it works fine on the mini. If you download the X10 version it might loop after JIT but theres a mini version too.

I download the flashtool before, and the firmware, but when i select Flash, it never let me select the Sony Ericsson X10i_2.1.A.435_GLOBAL-GGL GENERIC 1232-9897.zip nor the extracted ftf file...
