Xperia X10 is the first smartphone by the Sony Ericsson that is based on the Android OS. Hardware specs are also impressive as it supports a 1GHz snapdragon processor and an 8.1 MP camera. Now it has been confirmed by the XDA developer forum blog that Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 bootloader has been bypassed/cracked. It was made possible by the XDA forum member zdzihu. This essentially allows flashing custom kernels on the device. It was achieved by using the kexec miniloader method. Now at the time of this writing developers are hard at work on custom kernels to increase the functionality of the X10 such as removing FPS caps, allow undervolting to increase battery life, Wi-Fi tethering, and more.
So far, there is one kernel that is in alpha stage and flashing is possible via xRecovery. Since this is in alpha stage, so you might encounter bugs here and there. So head over to the original thread at the XDA developer forums for downloading the kernel that is in alpha 1 stage for now in case you want to have some adventure.
