I am waiting for 6.0.3.2 update because 6.0.2.7 not working it cause me error in recovery which makes my mobile unbootable I had this problem with leaked firmware. 200 too

The error which I am getting is
E: Can't mount /cache/recovery/command
E: Can't mount /cache/recovery/log
E: Can't open /cache/recovery/log
E: Can't mount /cache/recovery/last_log
E: Can't open /cache/recovery/last_log

I Tried fixing by all sorts of things like formatting, factory reset, flashing. 55 firmware and then flashed. 200leaked but again same problem

I can confirm that DooMLord's root method is working for Unlocked BL devices.

1st Flash Advanced stock kernel. (http://bit.ly/18y5l7E)
2nd Go to CWM (volume UP when you see Sony logo) and install zip from the sd card. (http://devhost.xda-developers.com/M10)

Actually, I'm testing a root method for locked bootloaders.
