Yup! That's quite common and guides for that are easy to find.

Also, before you do the kernel change, have you tried http://www.shuame.com/en/root/ ?

Btw for eroot, shuame, flash tool, and binary's root app to work, drivers are needed.

For drivers, you can find a driver installer within flash tool. Or you could use the drivers provided by sony pc companion. So don't expect any of them to work if you haven't installed working drivers.
Give thanks where due.

So your options and fallbacks:
1. your link from sony's website (it says for GB... you're on ICS already right? idrk if this one should work well)
2. sony pc companion provided drivers (recommmended IMO)
3. shuame root genius provided drivers (you should try the others first and this is your last resort)
4. flashtool provided drivers (I also recommend this)
5. PdaNet (really really last resort. not that' it's bad or anything. I just like sticking to officially provided drivers for starters)
Give thanks where due.

I've run out of ideas now.. Maybe flashing a different baseband may help. Note this is a blind guess.. I dont know if it will help or not. I just know baseband does affect battery life. I have never done this myself so I don't know how risky it can be

aww you have already helped me alot. i think reinstalling the official stock rom is the last solution, i wasnt able to do it till now because there is no way to download it on phone, ill need to download it on my laptop which can take up a whole day, i have slow internet :/ but today i found this

http://d-h.st/wg1


on divaksh's post, so should i download it on my phone and transfer it to my laptop and flash it via flashtool, will it work? and it's the official stock rom right? i can just put it on download and sleep, it will be ready by the time i get up, see this thread by nabeel he also recommends to install fresh ROM

Just be sure that the Rom you are about to download is legitimately stock Rom. As I don't know where you got that download link. I am not from the sola forum so I don't recognize the username :P

It is best to download from a laptop/desktop as phone download managers often make uncommon file types into unusable files. U could go to a computer shop or try downloading it from a friend's house. Then flash it yourself on your laptop
