Hi,

Anyone who knows how the Bootloader / Recovery is designed on the X10 ?
Or is the recovery with fastboot etc. a Standard Android Feature ?

Cause im interested how our chances stand for root on the X10.

I'm interested aswell - i don't anyone knows atm? I'll be getting mine 30/3 i'll check it out then...

However our chances stand and fall with the success of the device...if it's succesfull it will get rooted...if not our chances are slim

I'm very keen to get the X10 when it releases but I'm still not 100 sure of the specs.

I been getting different reports from different sites, even Sony Ericsson themselves told me different to what was on the website.

Does the phone have a digital compass? which could be used to rotate the streetview maps in googlemaps (like the hero does)

Does the phone itself support mult-touch? I have been told that the OS 1.6 doesn't natively support multi-touch.

I was wondering if the dolphin browser which supports pinch to zoom could be installed to allow that feature.

Hi,

Can either of you use ADB ? (dont know if the drivers are supplied)
If yes, try
adb reboot bootloader
-or-
adb reboot recovery

Or you can try turning on the phone while holding volume down
or turning it on while holding home

This are the usual ways to get into recovery.
If you could make it into the bootloader and post whats on the screen id be very thankful :)

I'm in love! It's a fantastic phone. The only problems are no multi-touch and some lag on TimeScape.

Could either of you that have it download astro off of the market and backup your system folder and post it here?

I fully plan on switching carriers when it's available here, but until then I sure would love to have a look at it..


Already extracted the system folder but there are couple of files from the etc folder which i cannot copy in anyway...i`ll try to use different than ASTRO file manager and will report after couple of hours.

If it works like other SE phone, SEUS split that file while upgrading in C:\Program Files\Sony Ericsson\Update Service\db\*numbers*\blob_fs.

Maybe you can look at it and find interesting files.
