PS: It's highly recommand to flash the unrooted .145 UK tft ([ROM] R800i_3.0.1.A.0.145 - Generic UK Firmware by thomassafca) via flashtool and flash this rooted images becuase the Baseband version was updated.

Downlaod the Android SDK (android-sdk_r11-windows.zip) via http://developer.android.com/sdk/
Extract android-sdk_r11-windows.zip to C:\
Extract the system.zip file to C:\android-sdk-windows\tools and downloaded the SYSTEMFILE.img file. (Filename will get different)

Open "SDK Manager.exe" from C:\android-sdk-windows


Press "Cancel" from the "Choose Packages to Install" box.


Go to "Available packages" and double click "Android Repositoey".



Choose "Android SDK Platform-tools, revision 4" and click "Install Selected".



Click "Install".


Installing...


Click "Yes" to restart the ADB.


Click "Close" and close the SDK Manager.


Go to "C:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools" and copy AdbWinApi.dll AdbWinUsbApi.dll to "C:\android-sdk-windows\tools"


C:\android-sdk-windows\tools (Before)


C:\android-sdk-windows\tools (After)


Make sure that the .dll files in C:\android-sdk-windows\tools

Unplug the USB cable and power off the phone

Press the "Search" button and plug the USB cable.


After that you will see the BLUE Notification light.

Go to the Start menu and click Run. Type cmd and press enter.


Type
Code:
cd \android-sdk-windows\tools
fastboot devices
and press enter.

If you got XXXXXXXXXXXXXX fastboot that means your phone successfully connected.


Then, you can flash the system img to phone.
Type

and wait a few minutes. (Please change SYSTEMFILE.img to the file your have extracted)


After Flash operation complete, reboot the phone!

Can someone reply REALLY quickly as i'm going out for the weekend in about 2 hours and want this done before i leave.....

Basically, all i need to do is:
1. flash the non-rooted rom
2. reboot handset
3. flash the rooted rom
4. reboot handset
5. enjoy the rooted fun of my play!!

EDIT:
OK, so i just went ahead and did it, and guess what, IT WORKED!!!!!
**** myself slightly after flashing the non-rooted ftf file, but it all went smoothly and i am now rooted on 2.3.3
