Sony Ericsson gives Xperia Play owners access to boot loader!
NOT all the time does Sony BREAK their promises, at least not the PHONE division, and today on Sony Ericsson Developer's blog, they released the details on how you can UNLOCK the latest range of Xperia devices including the newest one which has been dubbed the Playstation Phone, since it has almost look-alike Playstation Controller setup!
BUT this does not come without tons of WARNING's that doing this might make you think your phone is going to turn into a little bomb just waiting to go off in your hands, while you are playing your PSX games!
For those that don't read WARNING labels, and just jump into the frying pan, check out Sony's site for full information on how to UNLOCK your new Playstation Phone!Please note that you may void the warranty of your phone if you unlock the boot loader.
Sony Ericsson can then no longer guarantee the full functionality of your phone, and will not be responsible for any unsigned custom software being flashed to the phone after the boot loader is unlocked.
Certain functions in your phone might cease to work, and performance might not be ideal. You might also damage your phone permanently. In the worst case, unlocking the boot loader will cause physical injuries or material damage, for example, due to the phone overheating.
Certain content on your phone may also be inaccessible due to the removal of DRM security keys and the secure user data partition while unlocking the boot loader. Therefore, you should only unlock the boot loader of your phone if you are an advanced user with good knowledge of the technology and risks involved.
We strongly recommend that standard users NOT unlock the boot loader, as it is not needed.
We are proud to deliver great phone experiences through our rigorously tested and official software releases.
