[TUT] How to root ALL Roms (mini, mini pro... etc) [UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER REQUIRED]
The last time sony released the .62 rom when everyone had no root because they have waited that someone builds a custom kernel i thought about rooting my phone but staying on stock .62 kernel.
It is really simple to do that, the only things you need is:
1.A phone with unlocked bootloader
2.Flashtool package of the software you want to root (because of the kernel.sin inside)
3.Any custom kernel with cwm
4.su zip (in atachments)
The first step is that you flash the build version that you want like sony releases a new one then flash it.
second is that you open the ftf file from the software you flashed with 7zip and extract the kernel.sin.
The next step is that you flash a custom firmware of any previous build like the .42 or so or even the cm7 kernel.
You can do this with flashtool or with fastboot.
After you done that boot into recovery go to mounts and storage and mount the sd-card. copy the su.zip to sdcard and unmount the sdcard.
then go back and go to install zip from sdcard.
select the su zip and install it.
power off the device after this is finished.
open flashtool and plug your device into fastboot mode and flash the stock kernel.sin.
after this boot up your device and now you got the newest firmware from sony with root and you don't need to wait for a dev to write a custom kernel
after it booted up you may need to update the superuser binary and the app and install busybox with an busybox installer from the market.
Have fun ^^
