Question rooting FW 133

hey, am not aNOOB but am xperia NOOB
rooting sony phones looking to be harder than sammy's!

any ways, there are suggestions to root FW 133 by flashing a rootable firmware then root after that flashing!

does it lag? or get heated by this process? or is there any better ways to root?

Rooting an Xperia phone has never been as easy as now. I recommend using Easyroot Tool in Cross Development Section. I rooted my phone in 2 minutes and then installed dual recovery. Rooting itself doesn't cause any lag or heat issues, it depends on the Rom you install. Anyway it's very easy and as for Roms I'm using iHackers 4.1

It does if you flash the .108 kernel, then root, then flash the 133 kernel back.

As does @[NUT]'s method to install dual recovery on a non rooted device
