Pardon my lack of knowledge in rooting and stuff. This is my first android phone Lt15i. I read many tutorials regarding rooting but all I got an idea was that rooting can be done when the Android version is 4.0.3.

I recently updated the phone to 4.0.4 Fw 4.1.B.0.431 via PC Companion. Now I don't understand how can I root my device and I need an app badly which only works with a rooted device. A nice simple step wise method would be appreciated.

thanks in advance

Also the bootloader is locked

Like you mentioned, there are already threads which tell you how to root your phone.

Go read OverLo4d's thread in the General section. The steps are clearly given there.

But in short, what you need is the 4.0.3 kernel. Flash it with Flashtool. Root your phone with DooMLorD's rooting toolkit and then flash the 4.0.4 kernel back.
