Hello All

I was reading about how to root my Xperia S, I saw I need to unlock my bootloader, however my operator put a lock on my phone and I think I can't unlock it with the official way, is there another way to have root on my phone with android 2.3.7

Thanks!

There is no way yet to unlock the bootloader, I am in Mexico and my phone is locked too, I have a way to debrand your phone to recieve updates or upgrades instead of waiting for telcel, if you want it send me a private message and will show you how

I don't think telcel give you a some kind of code for unlock your bootlader, i went to a sony store and they can do anything too.... that suck but well if you find something new please let me now

same here, I bought my Xperia S directly to Sony Mexico, and it is locked too, I talked with Sony like 5 times, each one with different person and all said the same, that it is locked because in Mexico, there are not unlocked devices, no matter who sold it. They said that I have to talk with telcel so maybe they can give me the unlock code, will let you know if I will success

Hi, I was thinking in getting an Xperia S but if the bootloader is locked I won't get it.

Just to clarify, you both have done this (from: http://unlockbootloader.sonymobile.com/instructions)
Quote:

1. First, you should confirm that it is possible to unlock the boot loader of your phone by checking the service menu. In your phone, open the dialler and enter *#*#7378423#*#* to access the service menu.
2. In your phone, tap Service info > Configuration > Rooting Status. If Bootloader unlock allowed says Yes, then you can continue with the next step. If it says No, or if the status is missing, your device cannot be unlocked.

and you got the "Bootloader unlock allowed: No"?
