Being on a narrowband connection right now, I have little chance of successfully uploading 200+ MB, but if you have found out that Sony won't let you update, then you already have the necessary files on your computer and can make an FTF yourself. See here how: [GUIDE] How to make your regional firmware an .FTF file

That's how I updated my GO. Good luck!

I used Sony PC Companion too, on my Windows 7 x64 system the path was C:\ProgramData\Sony Ericsson\Update Engine\db\13740270\blob_fs

If you don't find it, just do a thorough search for a "blob_fs" folder on your drives. Try Everything if you're not using it yet. (I've just tried, and Windows Explorer has achieved the incredible feat of not finding the folder).

I just want to mention, that I have unlocked bootloader and I didn't try is this kernel working with locked bootloader.

Requirements:
stock Sony 6.0.B.3.162 FW
unlocked bootloader
working fastboot

How to Flash:
download the rooted_kernel_ST27i.elf (sendspace.com/file/74xilq)
save it in the folder with fastboot binaries (fastboot.exe files)
power down device
start device in fastboot mode (hold volume up and plug cable)

and use the following commands to flash the kernel:
fastboot flash boot rooted_kernel_ST27i.elf
fastboot reboot

After restart, download and install busybox from market, and update superuser...




I can't do this without:
DooMLoRD - I used his files from rooted kernel for Xperia P
Championswimmer - for tips and tool (ANDROID KERNEL KITCHEN 0.2.2)
Bin4ry - for tips

So, thanks to them

first I flashed the 184 using the flashtool with my own ftf file as you helped me do.

now I have 184.

the bootloader has already been unlocked

and then I try to execute the following

fastboot.exe boot the_184_rooted_kernel.elf as suggested in the first post of this thread

and I get this message that you see ...

I see. Since the 184 kernel from this thread doesn't mount SD cards (as indicated in several posts above), it's not a good idea to flash it anyway. Try flashing this kernel instead and installing su and Superuser.apk as instructed there. That's what's now working perfectly for me.

yeah I get where you're going - however I get a similar message when trying to flash that as well ... (tried it before as well)

Nothing unusual when fiddling around with ROMs... . At least you have finally got what you wanted (hopefully).
