error : unknown host services

i don't know what the problem and sorry if this problem is already been on someones device and you solve it but try to search in this thread and nothing came in my hand so if there is any solution to this problem or if anything that i do it wrong please tell me, thank you

Why is there an existing ADB server running? Do you have FlashTool or another Android program running? This tool has been confirmed working on the latest Xperia S firmware.

What build/version?
There's another thread specifically for Xperia Tablet S: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...0#post33440360

Instead of asking and waiting hours/days for a reply, download the tool and run it yourself.

Any news on an updated version of this tool?

Anything I can do to help with figuring out why it isn't working with this firmware? Attached is a logcat from when I tried to actually run the RootMe backup file on the Xperia T not sure if it helps but hope it does. If not let me know what else I can get to troubleshoot.

Just to clarify, to flash:

1. We should run the batch file from cmd in administrator mode?
2. We should run in compatability mode?
3. We should set the USB connection to charge only and not MTP or software mode?
4. Or we can just flash directly from the batch file?

I tried to flash on my LG Optimus LTE2 yesterday and was able to see supersu in my phone. So I opened some apps that require root, the first app worked, but when I tried the 2nd app, it hung and causes the phone no response. That prompted me to reboot and once rebooted, there was no phone connection and after checking found out that my IMEI was unknown. This caused me to panic and to my relief after reflashing my stock ROM able get the phone working again.

PS, I forgot to mention I tried flashing using Windows 8 Pro 64-bit.

My tablet is NEC LifeTouch L with ICS. I'm tired to death searching for a way to root it . Do you believe this script can do it? No danger if I try this script?
