Unlock Bootloader For Sony Xperia Devices
Android is no doubt and open Source Platform, but there are some limitations put on the devices to not let the developers and user to flash Custom images and files on their devices. If these limitations are not there, obviously everyone will start doing whatever they like on their device and in the end, if something happens, they'll blame the OEM. Now, these limitations are the only way for an official to learn whether custom files are flashed or not.

On Samsung devices, the Odin Mode has a Flash Counter to let the official knows for how many times custom binaries are installed on a specific device. On the other hand, those devices having a locked Bootloader, cannot be given back to claim the warranty. However, that does not mean that you can't pass these limitations, but not all of them are easy to pass, sometimes you need to go through a lot to pass them. In the case of Samsung, there is no restriction, in HTC htc.dev is there to help you. But in Xperia devices, things get a little complicated, and we'll show you exactly what and how.
