Works here like a charm, unlocked rooted and on stock release ROM.
I laughed great find!

Also note: you can use any of the mini apps without using the nfc diag.

PS: Does this work on any Sony phone that contains the sevice menu?


Kind regards, Stefan.

Does this happen to the Xperia Z with .434 stock ROM? I have tried on the pin lock but it will not unlock even though I key in any numbers or the OK button.

This issue is also present in 2012 Xperia smartphones. Tried it on XP and XS and was able to bypass lockscreen.

Did you perform the same steps on your Xperia S, as mentioned for Xperia Z, as I also did and was not able to get it on my Xperia SL

My phone is rooted. So maybe it works only on rooted phones? I'm using the latest firmware (434)

Edit:
Ok gave it several tries.

When you use the exploit, the phone won't lock again till you restart or change the lock screen.

Can anybody else confirm this?
I can indeed confirm this.
After using it for 3 or 4 times phone refuses to lock + home button no longer works.
Instead of that it brings you to homescreen, it flashes the screen once and nothing happens.

Also still love how you can use mini apps from anywhere in this menu.
A lot of fixing is to be done here.
First root exploit via this menu and now this.


Kind regards, Stefan.
