Dear mister DooMLoRD

Will it possible to do the same with Xperia Arc S 4.0.4 - 4.1.B.0.587 as your perfect guide in the first post in this thread?

I would like too re enable the ROOT I had before this last update, and I used your tutorial the last time. Your tutorial is perfect for those that isn't that familiar like me in flashing phones using diffident programs and several different files.

If it's not possible would I at least say thx for all the effort you already have given us...........

ok guys so i was directed to this post:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...9&postcount=18

where the user rasgula has posted a rooting toolkit...

it was slightly difficult to use for some users so i have modified it to make it fully automated with least user interaction also as a bonus it will install busybox too...


for those who dont know this is the well known old "andorid emulator" hack/trick... its surprising that Sony left those permissions on /data partitions... Dan rosenberg has posted lots of research material regarding this kind of hack for other android devices...


Credits for this go to the person who found that this old trik/hack works on Sony's Xperia 2011 ICS firmware!


anyways the rooting toolkit is in the downloads section below



[ requirements ]

  1. stock ICS firmware 4.1.A.0.562 for your device
  2. ADB drivers installed (if u are not sure, then install this)
  3. the attached package


[ READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY! ]

This script will:
  1. root ur device using "andorid emulator" trick
  2. install Busybox (1.18.4)
  3. install SU files (ICS specific)
  4. do some checks for free space, tmp directory (will remove Google Maps if required)


Before u begin:
  1. make sure u have installed adb drivers for ur device
  2. enable "USB DEBUGGING" - from (Menu\Settings\Developer Options\Development)
  3. enable "UNKNOWN SOURCES" - from (Menu\Settings\Security)
  4. [OPTIONAL] increase screen timeout to 10 minutes
  5. connect USB cable to PHONE and then connect to PC
  6. skip "PC Companion Software" prompt on device


[ WARNING ]

make sure that no other adb server is running in background (e.g.: Flashtool, PCC, SEUS) and disable any antivirus




[ how to install? ]
  1. make sure that you are on stock ICS firmware 4.1.A.0.562
  2. download the file posted below and save it on c:\
  3. extract ALL the files in the zip
  4. now just double click on "runme.bat"
  5. sit back read the on screen instructions
  6. the device will reboot a couple of times
  7. when the script finishes it will say "ALL DONE"
  8. enjoy!

@pushpakjain: man, please don't quote entire large posts

@vetdrchandan:same goes for you!
and about your question, just flash .562 kernel, root it, then flash back .431 kernel. but I doubt you will manage it, since you fail to do it on 4.0.3 after >20posts in Neo section..
