Nope. But I think renaming it to a .ftf file will do the trick. Mediafire has this problem occasionally from what I've heard. Make sure that the downloaded file size is the same as the size listed on mediafire. I'll see if I can upload the file to Dropbox .

EDIT: Added links to 2 stock kernels, does anyone have a link for X10 mini (E10) stock kernel?

X8 (E15) and W8 stock kernel:

But now to put a SIM from another provider I get the message "Press unlock code." Is this normal?

It means that your phone has been sim-locked. Looks like you have to unlock it again. I did warn you about this being able to restore the sim lock on your phone.

Thank you for your attention, but do not quite understand what I mean ...


Edit:
Sorry, I understood that this method also release the SIM lock ... ok sorry, thanks.

Ok, unlocked successfully, now I've a question - since bootloader unlocking interfers with simlock unlocking, is it safe now to get rid of simlock with any method?

For this I'm not too sure, some users in here reported that they have sim-unlocked their phones after bootloader unlocking their phones. I suggest that if you want to try this, it is best to try unlocking using the IMEI code unlocking method.

Somehow it seems that semcboot is write-protected :

Code:
process requires standard 2.x android firmware.
Press any key to continue . . .
Getting ROOT rights.
* daemon not running. starting it now *
* daemon started successfully *
2803 KB/s (585731 bytes in 0.204s)
error: protocol fault (no status)
Waiting ...
Removing NAND MPU restrictions via SEMC backdoor. Permanent. Require ROOT rights
.
376 KB/s (3087 bytes in 0.008s)
[1]   Segmentation fault      /data/local/tmp/...
Waiting ...
Getting ROOT rights.
error: protocol fault (no status)
Waiting ...
Writing patched semcboot. Two step process
First, we need get access to semcboot area
715 KB/s (8064 bytes in 0.011s)
Second, we need to write semcboot ;)
1655 KB/s (596916 bytes in 0.352s)
Error, cannot erase device
: Input/output error
Press any key to continue . . .
Also "Segmentation fault /data/local/tmp/ " seems to be a weird error... any ideas (x10 mini pro)?

SEMCboot is not write-protected for us, have you missed 33 pages worth of
Code:
unlocked bootloader successfully
messages? Retry unlocking your bootloader, remember to follow all the steps and read carefully.

Maybe you could make a backup in CWM recovery, reflash to stock, root your device, unlock the bootloader and then restore the CWM backup?

If you had used the search tool or read the first post carefully perhaps you wouldn't ask such a question.

Yes, you can safely modify the bootloader but remember to follow ALL instructions carefully. Read carefully too. As I said, the process MIGHT restore the sim-lock on your phone so do this at your own risk. I think you can sim-unlock it again after bootloader-unlocking it though.

Well, apparently I was only referring to my case. It was a statement for "cannot erase device" of MY issue. I've read very carefully all instructions and went by the book. I'll reflash to get rid of the recovery if that causes the issue.
