Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Finally Rooted (with Easy Instructions)
Many Android handsets are rooted even before their official release, but the Xperia X10, being Sony Ericsson’s entry into the Android world, apparently has some pretty tough security protection to prevent people from rooting and flashing custom ROMs onto it.
