This one is for me (deserved). But there are some differences between the ftf files for this phone and X10 mini pro (the one I had before), and the processes for flashing the files used confuse me a lot... But I'll do this today, for sure.

flashing the zips & ftfs are done in the same way though out the xperia range the only thing is fastboot which you don't need for 2010 range or in this tutorial. I my self still have my xperia x8

Already downloading. This version has all the vodafone crap and besides root, is untouched, right?

One more thing: CWM in only a boot.img file... And I can't find a tutorial for it. Do I have to replace a boot.img file in sytem folder when rooted, is that it?
And how about TWRP? Not advised...?
