Well I tried to use Bin4ry thread and his script to root my device but no luck

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1886460

since it's asking u ..on the very first step to open Sony's app - backup and restore -which is unlike found there when u install clean custom rom.

So - I'm not saying his way isn't good -it's just furstrating that i coudlnt find this app anyway on web so went back to original room rooted -
also with other thread - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1742992 - Thanks to Sharaz22
and extrackted the file for you all -to have better ,faster and easier way to root with Bin4ry post.

thanks to him and all others that helps up on this great website-
i wanted to add this file as a comment on his thread -but the website think i'm dumb enough to even commnet.
so I hope - Bin4ry if u see it -plz add it to your thread.

So there it is for u.. ( u can send it to your mobile by using bluetooth\gmail\usb cable-gmail would be to easiest way for noobies i think to find it and install it through there..)

I'll soon to be posting here noobies guide for easy rooting your Xperia S in 30min - if u would want that.
i'm gratefull to xda developers i think it's about time that i'll share from all i've learned during all this years.

no luck here unfortunately.
Here's the message I get whenever I click to run the app on my Tipo Dual:
Unfortunately, Backup & restore has stopped.

I'm sure others have had better luck rooting their phones.

Doesn't the S3 already have a non Sony backup and restore app?

Same on my LT15i - seems there's something missing. Both versions of the APK give the same result, it just doesn't work.

on the Xperia S I had no issues as well - but the S has backup&restore on board. The Xperia arc doesn't have a backup&restore app in the ICS upgrade - and apparently there's a reason why (copying the respective apk from the LT26 doesn't work either)
