No carriers' locked systems are safe when Android hackers set their sights on them.  Some are easy, some are tough, but eventually they all fall.  This time in the spotlight is the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10.  With the unknowns surrounding the fate of Froyo on the X10, and the less than speedy track record of SE, this one is extra special for everyone who loves the feel and looks of the X10's hardware but isn't quite satisfied with the software.  The other three people don't have to root :)

No method or files yet, just the news that it happened along with the obligatory photo proof.  We'll keep an eye out, and you guys do the same.  When details surface you'll be able to read it here.  [xda-developers via Twitter]

Xperia X10 Root video: http://www.xperiax10.net/2010/06/24/xperia-x10-root-gets-video-proof/

Despite the good news that we brought to you yesterday, regarding the successful Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 root, there are still many detractors who refuse to believe it has been done. To put the issue to bed once and for all, one of the coders (biktor_gj) has released a video that shows this is no photoshop. They also once again urged patience and will only release information once they’re ready. The good news is that not one phone has been bricked in this process, the worst that has been achieved is an endless loop despite trying their best! Hopefully that should lay people’s concerns to rest once the full tutorial is released. Check out the video evidence after the break.

This is the first production phone to be rooted and the guys behind the root are looking for a “good way to get it to you all,” but that it will only be released when it’s ready. Personally speaking, we can wait as long as we know that it is coming for sure. That isn’t something we could confidently say before today. Check out the photos of the Xperia X10 in root action below.
