Updated video: How to unlock the boot loader of an Xperia device

We’ve updated the step-by-step tutorial video for how to unlock the boot loader of an Xperia device. By unlocking the boot loader, it’s possible to put custom ROMs on your Xperia™ device. However, we recommend standard users not to unlock the boot loader, as it is not needed. We are proud to deliver great software experiences through our rigorously tested and official software releases.

Before you get started, please make yourself aware of the risks involved. By unlocking your Xperia device, you may void the warranty of your device, and certain functions may no longer work as intended. For more information, see the Unlock boot loader page.
