Hi guys.
First off, I thought I'd start a new thread rather than get this all mixed up in the other XPeria X thread.

So far I have an XPeria X with an unlocked bootloader and I'm following the instructions on the Jolla site.
So far I have installed Emma, and when plugging the USB lead in (while holding volume down button) I'm getting the green light.
But when I start Emma it tells me the device is locked.
I've also tried to install the Google USB drivers but cannot find the "Extras" folder in Android Studio.
Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Did you remember to enable both USB and OEM unlocking in settings?

Yep. All that is done.
Instructions are not the easiest to follow, the Jolla and Android steps seem to contradict themselves in a lot of cases. Like there's no telling how far you need to go when dealing with the Android side of it.

If Emma says 'The phone is locked' you didnt unlock the bootloader yet.

Go to: http://unlockbootloader.sonymobile.com/ and follow instructions for unlocking (needs your IMEI).

To check if you CAN unlock the bootloader

1: In your device, open the dialler and enter *#*#7378423#*#* to access the service menu.

2: Tap Service info > Configuration > Rooting Status.

If Bootloader unlock allowed says Yes, then you can unlock. If it says No, or if the status is missing, you cannot unlock (read: cant install SFOS)

And there is another thread on this subject, apart from the general Xperia X thread: http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=99703

Why are you using the Emma-thing in the first place?

If you update your XperiaX to the latest android fix by Sony, you can ditch the windoze stuff and flash it directly with fastboot...
That's what I did and installation went like on rails

Did you also try connecting to Emma holding the volume up key to see if some extra drivers installed?

I'm sure that you'll get it sorted but PM me if problems and sure that we can work something out.

Bootloader's already unlocked, unless installing an update since has locked it again. But everything in developer mode settings is still set up as per instructions.

Got "Yes" on that one. Like I've explained, it's already unlocked, I remember getting the key and typing it in.

I'll have a look at this some time.
