Default [Q] Problems with Easy Rooting Toolkit

Hi. I'm new with this rooting thing (only rooted a phone once, and only because the process was very easy), so i wish you could help me.

I'm tryin' to root my Xperia SP (C5303) using the easy rooting toolkit (the lastest version), but when i run the .bat file and press any key, the process never ends. Sometimes it stucks in a "Waiting for Device" message. Sometimes, in a "daemon started succesfully" message. I guess that's because the file doesn't recognize correctly my device, but i don't know exactly where's the problem. I saw some people having the same issues but i couldn't found any way to fix it.

Are you running win 8/8.1 of yes it won't work many problems with drivers.

Easy way is to find and use win 7 PC then follow the guide

I'm using win 7. I'm following the steps indicated by doomlord, flashing the kernell to an older version (and i think this part is ok, cause my phone says that i can upgrade the software and before that, it was in .254). But the .bat file part doesn't work. USB debugging mode is on, so as Unknown sources. I'm thinkin' that the problem could be the drivers, but when i use adb driver installer, it shows that the driver is already installed in my pc. I tried to reinstall this driver and nothing changes. The connection with flashtool and pc companion is ok, but i think that the .bat file part is a problem (obviously, i'm a noob. I can easily be wrong).

Edit: Today i tried again to run the .bat file. Something new appeared:
--- STARTING ----
--- WAITING FOR DEVICE
--- creating temporary directory
mkdir failed for tmp, File exists
--- cleaning
--- pushing files
15 KB/s (326 bytes in 0.021s)
770 KB/s (1578 bytes in 0.002s)

and that's it...

Obs: sometimes it stucks in "creating temporary directory" too
