Rooting IMPORTANT !
Hi all, first I want to say thank you to the OP for this tutorial, SArnab©® for giving his time and effort to help me and the creator of the applications used.

I tried 5 times before I actually obtained full root, the most critical INFORMATION that busybox version should be the latest stable version is not stated here that's why I failed 4 times. Here's what I did:

1. Follow the rooting procedure by OP. (That's up to step 7)
** You are now half root.
2. Install latest stable busybox version. YOU NEED TO INSTALL LATEST STABLE BUSYBOX VERSION FOR THE TOOL TO WORK PROPERLY. See: http://www.busybox.net/
** Busybox X doesn't work for me (Phone reboots after the toast notification "...Success") from this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=47378231
**Busybox Installerby JRummy (same result)
**Busybox PRO 9.7.3 (installs but Anto Kus always fails. Reason: Installed busybox version is the unstable version, (1.21.0), and you can't choose to install the latest one) from this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2457174
**Busybox by Stephen Stericson (PERFECTLY WORKING, MY LIFE SAVIOR) - I have the PRO though.
Note: Make sure to install latest busybox and install it to /system/xbin
3. Reboot. Tick USB Debugging, and Connect as MSC, then apply Anto Kus tool.
4. Phone will reboot, and YOU HAVE A FULL ROOT XPERIA M !

Please hit thanks if I helped you

Update :
Got a message for full root you can download Tool By Anto Kus (download here http://www.2shared.com/file/e9sDTGJk/rootfixer.html?) source : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2457174
(Before run this tool, you must install busybox on your phone.)

Requirement :
1. Download tool here http://www.cydiaimpactor.com/ (Read the website for detailed information about the exploit method.)

Step :
1. Extract the files.
2. Open the impactor.exe.
3. Connect your phone to your pc with usb debugging enabled.
4. In the impactor app click start.

5. After that download supersu from playstore.
6. Open the app and click continue->normal install
7. And voila your phone has been rooted

Update :
Got a message for full root you can download Tool By Anto Kus (download here http://www.2shared.com/file/e9sDTGJk/rootfixer.html?) source : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2457174
(Before run this tool, you must install busybox on your phone.)

NB : For moderator, feel free to move this thread if I post it in wrong section, thanks in advance.

Simply reflash your firmware witout a data wipe.
I have tested this it works.
But can't say wether you will get warranty or not.
