What does this do?
This is simply a graphical front end to the_laser's Windows batch files, with the added questions to prevent accidental device bricking.
Can I use this without having to downgrade to 2.1?
Yes, but make sure you follow 9Lukas5's guide here. Just disregard the third bullet point and use my program instead
How hard is it to use?
Not hard at all. Just click the big "Unlock Bootloader"* button
What is the point of this?
For people who don't like black backgrounds and white texts, but feel more comfortable with GUIs
Will you release the source code?
Now? No. In time, yes. Why not now? This is just a quickly developed application and the code is rather embarrassing at the moment
Do you plan to further develop this program?
Indeed I do. I plan to make it a nicer GUI, implement automatic kernel flashing (for those who use 2.3.x), and much more robust. As aforementioned, this is simply a quick mock-up.
Download the attached file below, "x10_bootloader_unlock.zip", or by clicking here.
0.1.1 (11/09/2011): - Fixed ADB errors. - Fixed "Bootloader" misspelling on button. 0.1 (10/09/2011): - Initial Release.
My priority is the X10. I apologise if you feel left out because of this. However, have no fear, because as soon as my implementation for the X10 is complete then the X8 (and other devices) will soon follow (like, almost immediately)
PLEASE REPORT BUGS. I HAVE NOT TESTED THIS!!!
