any Android handsets are rooted even before their official release, but the Xperia X10, being Sony Ericsson’s entry into the Android world, apparently has some pretty tough security protection to prevent people from rooting and flashing custom ROMs onto it. Back in May, someone even claimed to have rooted the X10 using a special flashing system which needs dedicated hardware, so not many were able to try it and for those who did, it simply didn’t work as it was a fake.
A big thanks to Jerpelea, biktor_gj and Bin4ry over at xda-developers for first obtaining root and secondly providing a method that everyone can use. Once you root your phone, please head over to the xda-developers and make a donation to these guys. It’s the least they deserve for cracking a phone that many thought may be impenetrable.

Google’s VP of Engineering Andy Rubin has confirmed that the Android 2.2 (Froyo) release will bring with it full Adobe Flash support. Talking to the New York Times, Rubin promised that full support (hopefully Flash 10.1) is coming to the next version of Android.
The whole process sounded relatively straight forward. Once the screws were removed, the case parts were clipped together and needed to be pried open with a credit card. Whilst he was poking around he managed to de-solder the white keypad light and re-soldered some amber coloured LEDs to match his cars interior light.
He is also considering swapping the microUSB jack with a miniUSB one, as he doesn’t have enough miniUSB cables. Personally I’d just buy some more cables but then I’m not a hardcore ninja modder like McKebapp!
Sony Ericsson will continue to support the Xperia X10 Android smartphone throughout the lifespan of the handset. Despite some of the recent criticisms regarding Android 1.6, it says that a big update will land in H2 2010 (most likely a new version of Android) but it won’t stop there and will continue to develop for the phone to keep it fresh.
