[ rooting instructions ]

before u proceed... make sure that u have read this:
[How-To] Safely test custom kernels / custom ROMs and get back to stock SE 2.3 ROM (we are interested only in custom boot.img section)
AT LEAST TWICE!


How to use FastBoot:

[Newbie Guide] adb/fastboot/bootloader/android 101


[ requirements ]
  • phone is on stock firmware: 4.0.A.2.368
  • bootloader is unlocked
  • boot.img from this post
  • fastboot files
  • SuperOneClick PC app (i recommend SuperOneClickv1.7-ShortFuse) OR Flashtool


[ how to root ur Xperia Mini Pro ]
  1. make sure u are on stock firmware: 4.0.A.2.368

  2. download the boot.img provided below and save it in same folder as fastboot.exe

  3. power down phone

  4. connect phone in fastboot mode (connect device via USB cable to PC)

  5. flash the boot.img using:

    Code:
    fastboot flash boot boot.img
  6. verify that u get [ OK ] at end of flashing

  7. disconnect USB cable

  8. power on phone

  9. when the OS boots up make sure that "Unknown sources" & "USB Debugging" is enabled

  10. connect device via USB cable to PC

  11. start SuperOneClick app on PC, click on Root (OR u can even start FLASHTOOL and then click ROOT)

  12. device might reboot

  13. when u get back in android OS, check app drawer u will see Superuser app

  14. congrats ur device is now ROOTED

Eeeh, what is this stuff all about? Mini Pro and kernel, both seems to be in the wrong section but forgive me for my ignorance?

I want Root of my Arc and running .368 with xLoud and stuff on a locked bootloader.

Attention: Xperia mini (ST15i) and Xperia mini pro (SK17i) please do not unlock these phones. There is an issue with flashing the original kernel via Fastboot.

How about this?
