Default 2.0.2.A.0.24 [mini/mini pro] can now be rooted

1: get SuperOneClick from its original thread if you don't already have it. Latest version is 1.5.5, but most versions seem to work fine.

2: Delete the "rageagainstthecage" file (no filename extension).

3: get psneuter.zip from the Xperia X8 Android Development forum thread.

4: Unzip it. Rename "psneuter" to "rageagainstthecage" (no filename extension), and move it to your SuperOneClick folder, to replace the rageagainstthecage file you deleted in step 2.

5: run SuperOneClick. Mine rooted without looping.

6: reboot your phone. Test your shiny new root!

Remember to put your phone in debugging mode, etc. Someone in the X8 thread claims that X10 Mini can be rooted via this method; I don't have a Mini so I don't know for sure. But I've got a Mini Pro and it just worked.

Update:

The file you need in Step 3 is "psneuter", not "psneuter.c". psneuter.c is the source file for psneuter. You can ignore it.

donetus says that if you have problems with Titanium Backup (even after step 6!), uninstall it, reboot, and reinstall Titanium. This appears to have worked for several users.

Amey006 says that s/he had to install drivers from the Sony Ericsson PC Companion for SuperOneClick to move past "waiting for device". I had PC Companion already installed when I did mine, so I don't know whether the process works without PC Companion... if you don't have PC Companion, you can get it here.

Update 03-2011:

The latest version of SuperOneClick now includes psneuter; you no longer need to follow the steps above. Just use SuperOneClick!

Does your phone say that it is connected? Try another USB port?

ADB will say "waiting for device" because SuperOneClick tells it to wait until a device is connected; if it says "waiting for device", ADB isn't seeing your phone at all.

Yes my phone says it is connected.
The usb debugging and usb flash symbol come up on my status bar.
After the message waiting for device the applicaton (SOC) stops responding.
I changed my usb port too.
Helpppppppppppp....................

Follow the instructions here, namely this bit:

Quote:
Turn USB Debugging OFF

Click Root

When it says: Waiting for Device, Turn USB Debugging ON

It'll now run RATC

When it says: Starting ADB Server...
Turn USB Debugging OFF
Turn USB Debugging ON
Turn USB Debugging OFF
All BEFORE it says "Waiting for device..." again
