Exclamation [Q] Please help! Unlocking bootloader in x10 mini

Hello everyone.

I'm unlocking the bootloader on Xperia X10 mini, using the following tutorial:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1254225

I have kernel SEMCUser@CEMSHost #1. The phone doesn't have a simlock.

I'm in section 5c (flashtool). Until this section everything went according to expectations.

There's a sentence in the guide that says: "Wait until Flashtool asks you to disconnect the cable off the phone, then turn on the device and connect the usb cable once again."

What happened was that I didn't see that sentence in the log, yet the phone turned on by itself.
I unplugged the cable and connected it again. The tool started to push files.
During the process the following error came up:
"Error mounting /system rw" (after "Remounting system read-write")

Not surprisingly, the message "Successfully applied unlock" did NOT appear.

Here's the whole log of the flashtool:
07/044/2012 14:44:26 - INFO - Device connected with USB debugging on
07/044/2012 14:44:28 - INFO - Connected device : E10
07/044/2012 14:44:28 - INFO - Installed version of busybox : N/A
07/044/2012 14:44:28 - INFO - Android version : 2.1-update1 / kernel version : 2.6.29
07/044/2012 14:44:29 - INFO - Pushing C:\Flashtool\.\devices\E10\busybox\1.19.0\busybox to /data/local/tmp/busybox
07/044/2012 14:44:30 - INFO - Remounting system read-write
07/044/2012 14:44:31 - ERROR - Error mounting /system rw
07/044/2012 14:44:31 - INFO - Root Access Allowed


What can I do to overcome this problem?

Thanks a lot!
:)

Maybe you can use this guide :

http://www.androidaddicted.com/sony-...i-pro-708.html

I unlocked my x10 mini pro booloader yesterday using that guide (x8,w8,x10 mini also included),and it doesn't have many step to do,and it also Small Step and Easy to understand...

Don't forget to click Thanks button if my post help you

EDIT : It also provide Xperia x8,Xperia w8,and x10 mini other then x10 mini pro

Default Take the battery out?

Thanks for the link, UchihaDareNial.

What is written there is similar to what I did, in the most part. Yet I now notice a couple of things that I might have done wrong.

That phone belongs to my family relative. I'll give it another shot when he is around.

Yet I haven't found a way to take the battery out in X10 mini...
Is it posssible at all?

Thanks!
