It's the official way. It's just simplified.

Flashtool can do the same thing.

I tested it on xperia U, working for unlocking bootloader, but when I failed ti flash KA ROM, it said the file is to big.

nice work dude, I think you should make a verification if the driver is already installed or not,
because firstly I forgot to install the driver, and this app just was not responding..

I have tried two times but it is not working. I have typed IMEI and got unlocking code but when I click on Unlock BL nothing happens.
Light is blue for fastboot, I am on Xperia S - official ICS, not rooted.

Bootloader unlock allowed - YES
Program freezes and I need to reboot virtualbox to remove it from the desktop. I am using it over virtualbox on XP and I am running Ubuntu 12.04
