can't be done. the thing that keeps the system read-only is in the kernel, so mere root is not enough to undo it. you need an unlocked bootloader to replace the kernel. you can still have all the other advantages of root.

If you have locked bootloader you need to use dualrecovery ( http://nut.xperia-files.com/ )
