Xperia X10 bootloader cracked

It's turning out to be a good month for Xperia X10 owners wanting to eek a little extra life out of their phones. First Sony Ericsson announced that the device, previously abandoned on Android 2.1, will receive an official Gingerbread update this summer. And now some enterprising hackers on XDA have managed to crack the device's bootloader, allowing users to install custom kernels for the first time, and paving the way for further customization of the device.
