Post Root Sony Xperia M Dual (C2004 / C2005) Jelly Bean 4.2.2 Build [15.2.A.1.12]

Disclaimer : I am not responsible if you brick your phone or if u make any other damage to your phone


So Lets Start :

1. First make sure you are running Jelly Bean 4.2.2 Build 15.2.A.1.12. Go to Settings > About to verify this.



2. Enable USB Debugging , Go to Settings > About phone and tap 7 times on Build number to enable USB Debugging mode.

5. Open the vRoot and Connect your phone Xperia M to your PC , you will see a green Root icon in vRoot, click on that to start the rooting process.



6. When it is finished your phone will restart automatically and vRoot will show something like the below screenshot.



7. Congrats your phone is now rooted






Note :- If you want to change the Superuser app to SuperSU , just download SuperSU from Playstore , open it , it will ask for Root Permissions , grant it , then follow the screen instructions to update the binary and remove the other Superuser app , finally restart the application.

Note : This method works on both locked and unlocked bootloader devices!!!

1. do i need to have bootloader unlocked or locked bootloader is fine to root?
2. does rooting will void my warranty? i only knew that unlocking bootloader might void my warranty

thanks

just bought this phone yesterday and overall it's awesome for mid-end device, the only cons is it's internal storage that is too small. mine has only 1,7GB left for user to install program and store data

No need unlocking bootloader for rooting our device
Do not unlock bootloader it is not necessary until if u want to Install custom rom and flash different kernel since stock rom works good
Ull lose warranty if rooted but u can unroot ur mobile easily by flashing stock rom
If unlocked bootloader Ull lose warranty forever even tat we can relock just don't do it
