I am having a very hard time trying to get root access to my Xperia Play.

Xperia Play R800i
Android 2.3.4
4.0.2.A.0.69
Bootloader unlocked

From what I could gather from this forum, I need to downgrade to 0.42 so I can use zergRush exploit by Doomlord, or Super One Click.

See, I have no interest in using custom ROMs. Actually, I would like to stay exactly with my stock rom, but with the root access to manage and save space in the internal memory of the phone.

But I cant seem to get Flashtools to work.
I have downloaded the Xperia Play (R800i)_4.0.2.A.0.42_TW.ftf file and it seems legit.
I also downloaded a recent version of Flash tools .

Here is the log of flashtools

24/027/2012 01:27:38 - INFO - <- This level is successfully initialized

I have installed the drivers for the Xperia Play from Flashtool drivers.
I am not in MTP mode. I am positive that it is in MSC.
I correctly plugged my device in flash mode.

I am on Windows 7.

I dont know what I am doing wrong.

Please, please, please, can someone more experienced lend a hand?

Thanks a lot.

It's not that.
I checked the box, following a tutorial.

In my research, I read that the more recent versions of flashtools had problems with some .ftf.
Anyone had those?

Could be it?
