now i wanna proceed with main installation but i don't undestand this

how do i know if a have any bootloader (locked or unlocked)?

now if it's locked can i go directly install the rom?
because installation steps are not quite for newbies like me (sorry but every must start with something)!


i ride SE xperia x10i GB 2.3.3 baseband 2.1.71

If this is your first attemtp at installing a custom ROM, then you still have a locked bootloader.
First, install FeraKernel-GB-v12.1(LockedBootloaders).zip via xRecovery.
Reboot and install the ROM you downloaded.
Now, sometime during the installation process, it will ask if you are on locked/unlocked bootloader.
Select 'Locked'.
Continue with installation.

Yo Fera, I've been searching for some time now to get you a new X10. There's one ending soon (tomorrow) on eBay, which I hope I can get. So let me know if someone else here already helped you, otherwise I'd send you one asap from Berlin to Istanbul!!! Best regards

You need to force close launcher in applications after changing its settings. When it reloads, you'll see the changes applied.

Kernels can only be flashed via flashtool. That´s my knowledge & point of view

== Installation Requipments ==:

-- If you're on Unlocked bootloader, you need latest FlashTool and device drivers (included in flashtool).
-- If you're on Locked bootloader, you need xRecovey which can also be installed by FlashTool (automated mode). You have to be Rooted first.
-- Baseband 71 (Use SEUS to update to latest official firmware).

== Installation Instruction ==:

FOR LOCKED BOOTLOADERS:
-- Download ZIP file called nearly same as [LB]FeraKernel-GB-xxx.zip and copy it to SDcard.
-- Boot to xRecovery and flash zip(all drivers are already in kernel zip).
-- Reboot your device twice and you're done.

i follow fera instruction.....why i need flash tool?

I think Kernel is included in Rom for locked bootloader & the zip file if mentioned by Fera has to be installed threw xrecovery, than you should do that.
I'm sorry if I couldn't help, you should unlock your BL it's worth it and really easy! Just use your flashtool to unblock it. Anyway, someone else might know more that hasn't unlocked their BL and will help you!
Good luck
