Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini and Xperia X10 Mini Pro Rooted
By on August 1st, 2010

Xperia X10 Mini and Mini Pro – the diminutive beauties from Sony Ericsson, have finally been rooted. The root procedure is fairly simple, but not automated. The Xperia X10 Mini root utilizes the Exploid method, which was also used to root the Droid X. An alternate procedure to root the X10 Mini is also available. However, this method doesn’t appear to be as universal as the aforementioned Exploid technique.

Now that all of the X10s have been rooted to gain superuser privilege, the next step is to unlock the boot loader (full root). Developers are already very close to cracking open the Xperia X10 and porting Cyanogen. Hopefully, its smaller siblings will also get the same treatment. Head over to xda-developers for the root instructions and guidance. Although the entire process is straight forward, you can theoretically end up with a bricked phone if you are not cautious. Also keep in mind that this might (and probably will) void your warranty.
