1. make backup of everything (I use titanium)
2. FlashTool download and install http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1351309(I did with version 0.5.3.0)
3. download file. ftf of this post http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1477440and place it in the firmware of FlashTool
4. FlashTool and click open the flash / Flashmode / select the file and ok for ftf
5. connect the phone in Flashmode (mini pro with key low volume) and wait
6. once the flashing turn and proceed to the root by this method http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1320350

Thumbs up GRACIAS (thanks) BROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
this right but also a tutorial in Spanish for my brother, thanks I also am of Peace, but the simplest is to take root in any model of SE and then updated and ready companion for pc not lose ROOT, I I did and it worked, since there is no root for 62 version

esta bien pero un tutorial en español tambien pues mi hermano, gracias yo tambien soy de la Paz , pero lo mas sencillo es tener root en cualquier modelo de S.E. y actulizar por pc companion y listo no pierdes el ROOT, yo yo hice y me funciono , ya que no hay root para la version 62

Or you can just use wotanserver to pick up an "US Generic .58" firmware, root it with flashtool, and OTA will be available.

mine doesnt want to turn on..

i explain: i have .62 originally, so i downgraded using flashtool to .42, then i root it using your link. Then I update back to .62 using the in-phone update (not the pc) but the phone doesnt restart. If i press the power button, i can see the green led light very weak and the phone doesnt do anything.

-in spanish now :P
he seguido las instrucciones, originalmente tenía el .62 asi que le hice downgrade a la .42 usando flashtool. Luego le hice root siguiendo el enlace que has puesto.

Una vez vi el icono de super user, intenté actualizarlo de vuelta a la .62 pero el telefono luego de hacer el allante del upgrade, no quiere prender. Presiono el boton de power y solo se ve el bombillito verde que prende bien tenue pero no hace nada..

any advice? algun consejo?

Saludos desde Londres

Try removing the battery and wait about 5 minutes to turn it on, if not try to flash again with the FlashTool, try to have a secure network to download the update

Sorry for my English

Hi Kevast and all,
If I have a rooted older version.
I can upgrade to 0.62 "over the air" and it'll stay rooted?

Thank you!!
