Post [Q] Error while trying to root Xperia TL

Well, I've been trying to root my Xperia TL (LT30at) to delete some bloatware and to install a recovery, for later change the ROM.
The problem here is that while I try to root with the bin4ry file, it always says to me there is no Backup & Restore app (which is true) and just waits for me to open the fake backup, which never shows up.
The most similar thing here the AT&T My Locker, which I cannot use because I'm from outside the US and in my country there is no such thing as AT&T.
By the other way I try to use the NUT's Dual Recovery (XT-lockeddualrecovery2.7.123-BETA.installer). It always tells me it was successful, but when I try to go to the recovery, It only turns on normally (obviously I always stay pressing the Volume Up button even after he shows me the AT&T logo).
So then, what should I do?
If anyone can help me I will be eternally grateful.

You should use V8 of this recovery.

Do I need have installed Superuser or do I need to root it before doing this method?
There is another way to root my phone?

You need to be rooted before installing CWM. Did you try Doomlord's Easy Rooting Toolkit?

Mad Marty is right, you have to be rooted before installing CWM.
You can find Doomlord's Easy Rooting Toolkit here: http://d-h.st/1Gp
Keep in mind that it works only with Jelly Bean 4.1.2 firmwares (so I guess you're OK) and remember to turn on USB debugging in developer option before rooting.

You can do nothing with this tool, since it seems your device isn't supported.

I think this tutorial will help you a lot http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2695394

That thread you linked to implies that the phone is already rooted; OP is trying to root.

@Darkanimus: You might want to check out this method, which seems to work for the LT30at.

I have a little more advance:
Now I have the backup & restore app and the Bin4ry's shell detects it (using the v18 and the v33). But when I'm going to "restore" the rootme file, when the confirmation screen appears, the app crashes and I still can navigate through the phone. When I go to the home screen, it shows an advice saying that Backu & Restore just crashed. What should I do?

If it doesn't work, I suppose that he can flash JB .141 of xperia T excluding baseband (to keep LTE band) and root that
