Do you have you root? If do you can install clockworkmod/cwm which will get you into recovery mode there is a link to download in the dev section or go to market and download it is free.

Like the post above you can't directly root.62 with zergrush method.

If your bootloader is locked you can use flashtools to downgrade to .42 then get root with zergrush, then you can update over the air to .62 and still keep root.

If your bootloader is unlocked do not update over the air out you will brick your phone.

Look at the stickies you will find all the tools you need.

Flash DooMKernel to get root and then flash the other kernel to keep the Sony logo.
But why do you want to keep that Sony logo?
DooMLoRD's bootlogo looks much better

CM7.2 = Android 2.3.7
CM9 = Android 4.0.4

For CM ROMs the included kernels are the best

For gingerbread from Sony I'd say go for DooMKernel
