Well this came about sooner than we thought. We knew Sony Ericsson would be introducing a site to help new Xperia owners to unlock their bootloaders, but we didn’t expect it to be published for a few weeks. It’s up right now, though, and the process is simple: give them your IMEI and your email address and you get a shiny new code to unlock that Xperia Play, Arc, Neo, Pro, and whatever other models are set to come out this year onward.
Sony Ericsson says that this “may void the warranty of your phone.” That statement can be taken a couple of different ways but we’d say just consider your warranty void as soon as you enter that unlock key. Go to unlockbootloader.sonyericsson.com to get started. (Full instructions and everything you’ll need can be found there.) [via XperiaBlog]
