I have one question for you... I am reading and reading posts in XDA, and now I'm in a strange situation. I want to flash CM7 (hope CM9 soon) in my Ray, but since the Bootloader unlock allowed:NO message comes to my phone I feel very sad about it. I tried to boot into Fastboot, but the phone simply refuses to do it and only starts with the orange led and starts charging, but no Fastboot...
The first thing I tried was Root the Ray, and the I managed to do it with a simple tool (you can find the latest version here)
[Xperia 2011 Easy Rooting Toolkit [v4.0](zergRush Exploit)] - http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1320350
Still my Bootloader is locked... so I think the CWM installation was impossible, later, I found this tool:
[SE Extreme Tweak Installer v1.8] - http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1346190
Then, I had installed CWM onto the Xperia Ray, without unlocking the Bootloader yet... (yes, it works at boot having the vol- key pressed as well) and yes, you can flash files (actually I modded some things on the original rom from CWM)...
The question is... Am I missing something to flash CM7/9??
Can I flash CM7/9 now??
Do you think this method will work for Xperia models??
Do you have any sugestions on this??
What if I don't unlock the bootloader and flash CM7/9??
My phone is operator locked, is this a problem to flash CM7/9??
If I flash the CM7/9 rom, will my phone be bricked??
My bootloader still says Bootloader unlock allowed: No :S. By the way, I do have a Xperia ST18a not a ST18i.
PD: I do not own any of those tools. I am only telling my method, so I you think this is a valuable information please says thanks to the developers above (and if you want, me too )
