X10 Bootloader Bypassed
Due to the proximity of the date, we were unsure whether this was a very clever April fool’s joke or a real development. After reading up a bit, we have now confirmed that this is the real deal. X10 owners can finally rest in peace and rejoice because the long, much awaited development of the year has finally been accomplished by XDA member zdzihu. The uncrackable bootloader for the Xperia X10 has been successfully bypassed to allow custom kernel flashing on the device. This was done via the kexec miniloader method. The devs are already working on custom kernels that will enhance the functionality of your X10 by doing things such as removing FPS caps, allow undervolting to increase battery life, wifi tethering, and much more!
So far, there is one kernel in alpha stage that can be flashed via xRecovery onto the device. The dev mentioned that he has tested this for over 48 hours without any major issues. Having said that, this is in alpha stage, so you will likely encounter bugs here and there. Please report any feedback that you may have regarding this.
The bootloader has been bypassed using the kexec/miniloader method
