New Simple Technique to Root Sony Ericsson Xperia X10
By on August 7th, 2010

Sony Ericsson’s flagship device, the Xperia X10, got rooted a couple of months back. While the root procedure described in our original post isn’t complicated, it definitely involves more effort than most iPhone/iPad jailbreak solutions. The good news is that a much simpler technique is now available.

Universal Androot

The new root procedure exploits the Exploid bug that has already been used to root the X10 Mini and the X10 Mini Pro. In order to gain super user (root) privileges all you have to do is install the Universal Androot APK and press a button.

If you have been putting off rooting your phone because you found the entire process to be too time consuming, go ahead and give the new method a spin. The app also comes with the option of “unrooting” your phone.

Universal Androot is known to work with multiple handsets including Motorola Milestone, HTC Hero, HTC Magic, Dell Streak and Acer Liquid. However, there is a major known issue with this approach. Multiple users have reported that ADB (Android Debug Bridge) doesn’t work after using the Universal Androot app. Stick to the old method, if you need the debug bridge.

P.S. If the above links don’t work, you can download Universal Androot from here.

    So… Having used androot, where can I find a Android 2.1/2.2 ROM for the X10 mini pro? Not managed to find one purporting to be compatible yet.

    Also, won’t I need the debug bridge to replace the frimware?
