Hello Everyone,

I just recently updated my Xperia M Dual to 4.3 using PC Companion , but now I want to root my phone since I want to use link2sd to free up some space in the internal memory. I was checking out this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2529561 but I think its for 4.2.2 so can someone help me with a tutorial on how to root my device and use link2sd.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I had a tough time following a few root methods on here for my M Dual device, but what helped me just gain root was:

1. Flash CWM recovery via Flashtool (fastboot mode : select kernel to flash)
2. Reboot into recovery, perform backup of current system just to be safe to SD card.
3. Download Stock ROM with root & matching Radio (go here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2703161) following the directions on that post.

This will at least gain you root access.

Hope this helps!

@DanielBink, at the moment only Nicki Root and Towel Root works in 4.3 update, or, if you have unlocked bootloader, flashing SuperSU through recovery. Everything else will fail...
