Google The source code for Android 2.3 has been released. "Nexus S went on sale yesterday morning in the US, running Gingerbread. Just like I did for Froyo, I'm open-sourcing the matching Android platform source code, right after the first consumers get their hands on it. I'm going to start literally right now, and the process will take a few hours."

i.e. you will find a ton for HTC phones but not say... sony ericsson. So obviously if a phone is popular the greater the chances that you can root your phone and write a non signed version of android (i.e. hack the bootloader).


I am sorry but Sony Ericsson is very popular and was also one of the very first phones to get an unofficial Gingerbread!!

The bootloader has not been cracked because of its good implementation, not because no one has tried. I have also heard that the marketing people at SE are aware of the "problems" this have caused XDA, and they dont like it. Maybe we can see a "leak" soon?
