[Q] need help: easy way to root Xperia-V keeping stock firmware 9.1.A.1.140
may be there are already the right answers around hidden in some threads,
I am pretty unsure if the described ways will work with locked boot-loader
and keep all functions of the phone up and running.
Sorry, if I ask stupid questions, I am a noob regarding android phones and the
tricks to get su on the phone.
My firmware is:
#1 SMP PREEMPT Tue mar 19 12:47:46 2013
Xperia V - Germany
Is there a way to backup everything (whole firmware) first, before starting experimenting?
I don't care about losing custom settings / user data, but I want to make sure I can revert
everything to original settings, if something wents wrong. (I have made a reset / fw-update with SUS)
I read some of the threads, but hesitate to flash the firmware, because there were issues
reported with not working WLAN, battery problems etc. after flashing, so I want to make sure,
the result will be just the same as it is now, but with root privileges....
I am also not really aware of the differences between Singapore / Nordic / German
stock rom's and what implicaions they may have regarding support of the different LTE / GSM etc. protocols....
Also unlocking / relocking of the bootloader is not an big issue, I think, I would prefer
to not mess around with it, if not absolutely necessary or easier to get the desired result.
Thank you very much for giving me some directions / how-to's to get just root on my phone.
