If you don't... just wait for some tutorials etc!


1. Unlock the bootloader
2. Download the boot.img http://www.mediafire.com/?il5sb1n45fw5dxa
3. fastboot flash boot boot.img
4. adb shell -> remount system rw -> push su into /system/bin
5. Install Superuser.apk

Thanks for your efforts so far. I'm on an xperia play here and I'd like to test this as well. Can you maybe tell me how to dump the needed files to create such an image?

Can i do a fastboot recovery instead to test if the boot.img works for my Arc?

As you probably noticed the previous boot.img didn't work... Here's a new one - that should work fine. Only thing changed vs stock image is default.prop - nothing to brick your phone

Again, flash via fastboot
