Exclamation rooting instructions

[ 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 Ray ]
  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

    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

Awesome mate!

How likely is it that this root will survive the upcoming 2.3.4 upgrade?

Can someone help me?
When I try to flash my Ray I get always "Error Flashing. Aborted."
Im using 0.2.9.1 and the FW provided from here... maybe I need an additional loader!?

Anyone an idea?
