Hey guys I read this on Xperia Play forums...

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1312859

Has anyone tried it on stock x10 gingerbread firmware?

Its basically a new exploit (zergRush) by the Revolutionary Team...

Can anyone test it? (My x10 is still in service center :p )

Hi doom,

Sometimes other fw dont match on other countries so i guess this is very usefull to others.

And im talking about radio signal (network).

network is related to baseband and as far as i know we only have one provided by SE. 71

Baseband and firmware i guess. Or maybe i am wrong. But On my experience ive tried using other fw and my signal was low, change back to fw of my country and viola got a full bar on my network. ( tested on the same spot ). Or maybe just a lucky glitch.
