Question [Q] Dont have options to switch to MSC mode from MTP

I am on ICS 4.0.4 build 6.1.A.0.452 on my xperia S.
Rooting guide for 4.0.4(locked bootloader) is available by doomlord...But one of the requirement says phone to be in USB Msc connection mode. my question is ,everyone says to select MSC mode in settings-xperia-connectivity.
But its not there in my phone!!simply no option at all!!

there is an option of mount usb in settings-storge,but that is always grayed out
wether connected or not

haha, never seen any option in this regardless of MTP only. Going to Themes & apps thread and you'll see a thread " Sdcard mounter for ics "

see here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1744878

but actually you need root access to install that app & on other hand you need Msc mode enabled to "root" stock ICS!!

So what should be done?
I want to root it

Hey, no need msc mode enabled to root. What you need is install cwm & install su.zip in cwm

I'm new here. I am now also searching how to root my xperia neo with ics in mtp mode. It seems to me that you also need root to install cwm.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.
Thanks
