You can flash with wotanserver and it's not necessary to flash .58, .42 works also.

Where did you get your .58 FW for the WT19i?
Im planning to do that same steps you have mentioned.
But I would really like to keep the user data apps on my phone.
Have not rooted my phone yet and currently on latest .62 FW.
Would it work on my current setup or do I a really need a fresh install of .58 FW.
Thanks

Question
If the bootloader is unlocked, does that mean, that .62 is normal rootable?

I ask, because Sony offers the bootloder unlock officially:

If you unlock BL via SE official method then FOTA updates won't work, i think

agreed.

I never read thread pass the first page. So I don't mind if there is like 10000 threads on the same subject.

+ it's easier to surf threads, than posts.

And the Search functions are never accurate.

did everything as you guys said. Installed .42 using FlashTool, Root it fine. However after updating the FW to .62 over the air (OTA), the phone doesnt want to turn back on anymore.

Any advice?
