Joseph Martin: You CAN bootloader unlock the carrier phones. Ive done it with the Z. XDA can help you.

JunkyGames: Does this work on sony Xperia m

ankit sharma: Hey.. I have a rooted xperia s wid a custom rom... I followed your video to achieve this. I have a question though.. i wanna install a new rom and on d internet i found dat i need to wipe cache, wipe data and delvik cache.. And then install zip from sd card..... But seeing as our mobile doesnt have an sd card... Wont the zip be deleted when i wipe data... forgive me im just a noob, but any kind of help would be appreciated:-) :-)

Dustin James Lee: Thanks dude, the video was very informative.. I was checking on the comments below though and i can see that people using Xperia Miro are experiencing problems, so i will not be joining the fun on having a Cyanogenmod.. In the future though, i look forward to visiting this link again if ever i get the chance to have another phone that's also on the list.. Keep it up dude..

Reza Rhmnsyh: hey when i fastboot my xperiap i cant update the driver.. the s1 thingy

martin tirpak: rooting status bootloader unlock allowed no help please 

MrTheBakugan: thank you...but sometimes when i lock my xperia miro and then i click again power button to turn on the screen it is shut down... little bug or something else???

Brayan Gil: Hi, Jeremy, i saw your videos on youtube, and you know a lot of things about Xperia Devices... I have a Sony Xperia E Phone, and a Sony Xperia Tablet S. Well, i wanted to ask someone with the experiencie because the only thing i've flashed was an old 2.3 GingerBread Tablet. My phone's current firmware is 4.1.1 (11.3.A.0.56) But i know Sony released for my phone an update but i cant get it, or download it. I tryed Pc Companion and Update Service, and it always shows that my phone has the lastest software. I live in Colombia, and i don't know if that is the reason for not getting any update. The lastest software is 11.3.A.2.23. I have some questions, i hope you can help me. I found this guide: http://www.xperiablog.net/forum/resources/xperia-e_c1505_11-3-a-2-23_vietnam_generic.145/ and i wanted to try it. But i'm not sure if this firmware from Vietnam will work in my device. (When i plug it to the computer, PCC name it C1504, and that firmware is for C1505, will it work? I'd like to know if i need to unlock the bootloader to run the update... Is it safe, that update, bring many improves for my device, and i want it!! I asked in xda forums, and the ask me if i unlocked the bootloader, but the post says that i don't need to unlock bootloader, it also does not requires root, but, i rooted my phone with SRSRoot... Other question i have, is, if i update ( if i can) to the latest firmware, do i need to root again my phone, root? I saw from xda forums, the way to root the 2.23 firmware to downgrade kernel, ... but is that the only way? {root 2.23 firmware http://forum.xda-developers.com/xperia-j-e/general/how-to-xperia-e-c1505-firmware-11-3-2-t2435957} I hope you can answer my questions, and thank you for your time.

Luka Banožić: Hi, Jeremy! Please help. I have Sony Xperia Miro (ST23i), and I successfully installed CM10 on my phone following every step on this video tutorial (thanks a lot BTW), but I have a problem with rebooting. All features on CM10 work fine, but phone keeps rebooting itself like 20-25 times a day. It reboots when I press the power key on the top of my phone for screen unlocking/locking. Power button worked fine on ICS 4.0.4, and so was screen unlocking/locking.

azizi sam: im using xperia miro(ST231) with ftf firmware 11.0.A.5.5. can i boot the boot.img file from cm10 folder to get the cwm recovery?

Bernard Ventura: i'm searching about rooting or booting phones.. i'm not so familiar with that.. but Xperia Miro is capable to do that? its Operating system is Ice Cream sandwich and i want to upgrade its OS. can you help me?

Ricardo Castañeda: Jeremy please help!! I have tried to install CM 10.2 using the same method (I used to have CM 10.1) but after fastboot reboot the phone (Xperia V) doesn't get in the recvoery mode, and it doesn't reboot at all. (The battery is charged) I've tried to flash the original firmware from my phone using flashtool but the software doesn't recognize the phone, and I rarely get into the blue led fastboot mode. I hope you could give me some help...

Sugi Sriskantharasa: Is the battery better , i have the nature iu from xperia 4.1.2 and the battery is very fast flat

Moahmmed Hany: i did everything till the last thing when i finished and tapped reboot my system and the cyanogenmod logo apperea and start rolling here is the problem it kept rolling for about 10 min now and never opens i'm waiting for it but no response what should i do ?

Andrius Kasparavicius: Hey I did everything in tutorial and cyanogenmod logo is spinning but it doesn't get cyanogenmod. What can I do? :/

ελίνα Αλφαρά: Hello,I have the Xperia U..I can't boot my device into recovery mode,although at the Rooting status says ''Bootloader unlock allowed:Yes'' What shall I do?

Muhammad Nadhir: Hey man,thanks for the tutorial.Works on my Xperia GO like a charm :) At first after I flashed both zips it was loading on that CyanogenMod circle thingy.After a few more boots and when my phone started to lose battery,it suddenly brought me to the welcome scree.Once again,thank you a million times :D

Shane James: Hey Jeremy,I already unlocked my Bootloader on my Xperia(go), and when I tried to connect the phone to my Laptop to copy the .rar files, the Laptop didn't detect the phone, Why is that ?

Banumathi vadivel: Help Needed. .. My Xperia SL is not recognising the SIM even I inserted the SIM many times. Im running on cyanogenmod 10 now. Its not recognising the SIM right from my firstborn after I installed cyanogenmod in it. Need help.

vuth Enix: It said waiting for device when i enter fastboot.exe -i 0x0fce getvar version in CMD. I have xperia ray running on 4.0.4

Jeremy Phan: ... "Google Apps" in the description.

Chromakun: I love how you ran a timer telling us how long waits would be! Kept me from freaking out when I did it!

Christian Tirol: I just flashed it back to my stock rom now i have 4.1.2 can u give me a link to the proper cm10 :3 please

Chester Labaco: Hey man, I'm stuck in the splash screen of CM9. What do I do?

antreas kazant: Thanks man

Jeremy Phan: ... or read the GIANT RED box that the entire video pauses for and forces you to read at 0:04. People shouldn't do ADVANCED things if they can't do BASIC things.

Jeremy Phan: ... read the description.

Disconikolaj: When the CyanogenMod logo is showing on the phone. It's just keeping going round in circles, its been for 10 mins now. Should i let it keep going and see if it shows the start screen. Or have i done anything wrong? I followed all the steps, and all the steps took a little longer than yours, but this is taking too long.

Jeremy Phan: 1. Either go to Mount/Storage and mount it as USB and hope it works or 2. Flash an FTF and start over. As stated, if you don't know how to fix a bootloop, this is too advanced for you. Read the giant red box at 0:04.

Jeremy Phan: What kernel did you start with? Read the Sola thread #2089038. I'm not a dev. The issues should have been resolved in v222.

Jeremy Phan: That's a dev issue. You'll need to isolate the issue. Is it the specific CM10 recovery or is it another issue. Flash back to ICS, root, and use RecoverX or CWM to install a recovery. If your buttons work in another recovery, you'll have your answer. If it still doesn't work, it's a deeper issue and you'll need to contact the FreeXperia team.

pkm100: Great ! cant load a custom rom and sony did a very poor job with 4.1 update, google now doesnt work, videos lag terribly, Im a owner of a broken phone now, great.

Jeremy Phan: ... why would you wipe system after flashing? That'll erase everything. Read the description. Have you even unlocked yet?

Keeno Finite: thanks. :) I hope it works.

Robert Varghese: i kept trying, and now i can reach to CWM recovery, can i do the different tries here...? i mean wipe system, wipe cache etc....or do i need to use flashtool first

Saif Ghaith: i have Sony xpria play from at&t can i bootloader unlocking or what ? when i do #*#*7378432#*$* i cant`t see a bootloader unlocking just my imei and working bands and available speech codes so can i do it or not ?

Jeremy Phan: Most likely. Install OTA Root Keeper. It may maintain root.
