It seems like we finally have a working root method for the 2.0.2.A.0.24 firmware!

It can be found in this X8 thread:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=905183

Can anyone verify? I'm not on the latest firmware so am unable to confirm.

Update 1: Ok, it's confirmed to be working! Just download the SuperOneClickv1.5.5 (for 2.0.2.A.0.24).zip file below!

Update 2: SuperOneClick has been updated to use psneuter for exploit by default. This means easier rooting of SE devices. Original thread here. I have attached the latest version (1.6.1) below

Update 3: Have attached version 1.6.3 of SuperOneClick. Original thread here.

Update 4: This works for those who have updated to 2.1.A.0.435 firmware as well. If you have problems with version 1.6.3, please try version 1.5.5 instead.

Update 5: Attached version 1.7, which works just as well.

Update 6: This does not work on Gingerbread Android 2.3.3! You can either download and flash one of the pre-rooted custom ROMs found in the Development section or follow DooMLoRd's guide.

Could you be so kind as to provide exact instructions on what you did?

Did you use the version posted by bociek1989 found here or did you use the version posted by konio25 which is found here?

And what do we do with the psneuter file that is in the first post of the thread?

I posted these instructions for the X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro; I presume they will work for the X10:

3: get psneuter.zip from the Xperia X8 Android Development forum thread.

4: Unzip it. Rename "psneuter" to "rageagainstthecage" (no filename extension), and move it to your SuperOneClick folder, to replace the rageagainstthecage file you deleted in step 2.

5: run SuperOneClick. Mine rooted without looping.

6: reboot your phone. Test your shiny new root!

Remember to put your phone in debugging mode, etc. Someone in the X8 thread claims that X10 Mini can be rooted via this method; I don't have a Mini so I don't know for sure. But I've got a Mini Pro and it just worked.

I downloaded the file in the first link, by bociek, and just ran it, it worked. I didn't even use the psneuter file. I had to reboot though.

I did this:
1º put x10 in usb debug mode

2º run superoneclick(without deleting anything)

3ºRoot and wait

4ºReboot phone

Then tried screenshoot app and terminal app("su - sudo" to gain root ), both worked.

@oXunknownXo

Were you running 2.0.2.A.0.24? Previous firmwares can be updated with the SuperOneClick exploit, yes, but it is 2.0.2.A.0.24 update that stopped many root methods from working.
