My st25i say that the status for root is no.
Can I just flash the kernel to get root access like U mentioned?

1. Flash ics 6.1.1.b.1.10 Kernel
2. Root with flashtools
3. Flash ics 6.1.1.b.1.54 Kernel

I am on version 6.1.1.b.1.54

Other thing...I have send to sony my IMEI and they gave me the unlock code for the bootloader despite in my phone says like I told you before that "root access not allowed" can I use this code risk free?

I just want the root access I don't mind the locked bootloader but I think I cant have root access if the bootloader is locked correct? I have tried several methods and I am confused, can you please, explain?

What do you recommend the best thing to do?

Thank you in advance.

Sorry for the bad English I hope you understand what I mean.

Locked bootloader or unlock bootloader has nothing to do with ROOTing.......
So if you BL is locked or not dosent matter.........

You are on .54 FW so use the steps which you mentioned and you will be rooted........
the Code which you received by sending you IMEI no is for unlocking bootloader........

I can't do this! I tried to flash the .10 Kernel and my phone goes haywire (I can't even mark my PIN because the touch doesn't work)... I've spent so much time trying to root my XU and I got so much frustrated...I'm starting to give up.

Can someone, please, help me?

I'm using the .54 sony rom. I saw a root guide that told me to flash the .10 kernel, so I did it...and after the kernel was flashed...my phone would brick. The touchscreen didn't work, and I couldn't root it trough the flashtool anyway. I tried other guides, but it allways came to the problem of not being able to flash the .10 kernel for the flashtool root to work.

I'm sorry if I can't explain myself better. But I'm not native english. Send me a PM if you need anymore info. Thank you so much.

Are you able to use flashtool????????
can you flash any ftf file??????
if yes then download GB ftf for your fone and then flash it...... this will help you to get your touchscreen working most probably...... coz one person has tried it and this worked for him........
