Sony is really pushing to be the phone maker for the dev community. They offer up open boot loading tools, and now they want to teach you how to run a custom kernel step by step on its newer phones. Why are they doing this? Well I think they pissed plenty of people off with the ps3 fiasco, and they know the rom manager app is on a quarter million phones. They have even gotten going on XDA to answer questions and give help on customization. In a perfect world Moto, Samsung and HTC would follow suit. But don’t count on it.
