Also, have you tried to root it with Zergrush?

It was straightforward. I then just flashed the pre-rooted ROM Bin4ry provided.

yeah i remember a long time ago having to use XP for some driver issues. none-the-less i will have to find an xp machine or create a VM just for this..lol

glad to hear it work.

manage to do this on my x64 Windows 7.

key thing is to get the right drivers


I download the drivers from here, http://download.theandroidsoul.com/f...ootloaders.zip

and use the fastboot drivers from the drivers folder.

then in that few seconds where the phone is in fastboot mode, I update the drivers accordingly.

The problem I think is Windows 7 will automatically redirect the driver installation to default/generic installation if it can't find the driver for the device. So perhaps to avoid it totally it's to use gpedit.msc to stop the redirection of the devices..

Google is your friend:

Basically, using the Sony apps, you can download copyright-protected material like music and movies. These are protected by DRM keys.

Without the keys, you need to push the music/copy it/download it the usual way.

I'm trying the VM way now as well, because I can't get it to even try to install the drivers, i can point to the drivers but it says it cant find them :/

Update!!!::

Okay! so for Win7 x64, use the arc drivers that were attached from zenkinz, it works!
