Boot loader unlock tool for Sony Ericsson Xperia devices released

Sony Ericsson has kept its promise of releasing a boot loader unlock tool for Xperia Play, Arc, Pro and Neo. This unlock tool is now available download on its developer website.

Apart from the tool, you will need to have latest Android SDK, and USB drivers to make it work. Boot loader unlocking is only recommended for advanced users and not all versions of the above mentioned devices can be unlocked.

The only way to determine if you can unlock the boot loader for your phone is to connect your phone to the Fastboot tool in the Android SDK. If your phone can connect to Fastboot, the boot loader can be unlocked.

You can find the full instructions and download of unlock tool here.

Good luck unlocking… Hoping to see some nice custom ROMs pretty soon.
