Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Rooted by Android Developers, Details Gone Public

July 12, 2010, By Atul Roach

We all are very familiar with the term Jailbreak as we understand that it implies hacking the various versions of iPhone OS to run all unlocked features, pirated applications as well as illegal tethering. ‘Rooted’ on the other hand is a fairly new term and just in case you do not understand its precise meaning-rooted is for Android what Jailbreak is for iOS.

We will get used to the term the more the developers succeed in hacking the Android OS to make their handsets dance to their tunes. For the time being, the Android device to be hacked is the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 and unlike the iPhone 4 jailbreak (we understand why the GeoHot hack details didn’t go public), the guys to have managed the feat over xda-forums have detailed every bit of the rooting process.

I am not much of a hacker myself (though I admire the very idea), but the Xperia X10 Root is a simple five-step procedure and the reason I call it simple is because I’ve been through some hacking details in the past. A few of those details ran into numerous pages, which is why I like the limitation of the five steps. Jump over to the xda-forum link at the end to go through the entirety of the Xperia X10 Root.
