well, i tried to change the root partition (mmcblk0p9) but it went into a bootloop.
I was told later that sony implemented a small change in init.rc which checks if default.prop ro.secure=0 and then it would shutdown. which i did not check for, so im locked right now from doing any /system in rw if possible.
Furthermore the init.rc scripts do have a signature, so it might not work to change at all. (but maybe it does
if Sony forgot to use those sigs on init scripts)

well, i thought about testing if Xposed installer, works without having /system rw, but never checked how it works.
but having custom DPI per app is one feature i'd like to have on that box.
and the hosts file is another nice function you mention.
i'm thinking loud here:
now that we can modify the /system "offline", maybe someone could download the REL10 US for me, by replacing the /system/build.prop with one from the REL07 we can download.
Seems no one got the REL10 anywhere, so the one way to get it once more, is having the build.prop replaced, i guess to force a download of it again. (you can always with root enabled delete the upgrade before booting, file should be on the /cache partition.
I am also told the web location of REL10 is seen in logcat, when its being downloaded, so you do not even need the file, you can just dump your logcat before actually rebooting with REL10.
Thats just a thought if anyone can help out
