[ rooting instructions ]

before u proceed... make sure that u have read this:
[How-To] Safely test custom kernels / custom ROMs and get back to stock SE 2.3 ROM (we are interested only in custom boot.img section)
AT LEAST TWICE!


How to use FastBoot:

[ requirements ]

  • phone is on stock firmware: 4.0.A.2.368
  • bootloader is unlocked
  • boot.img from this post
  • fastboot files
  • SuperOneClick PC app (i recommend SuperOneClickv1.7-ShortFuse) OR Flashtool


[ how to root ur Xperia Ray ]

Can someone help me?
When I try to flash my Ray I get always "Error Flashing. Aborted."
I´m using 0.2.9.1 and the FW provided from here... maybe I need an additional loader!?

Anyone an idea?

Aha.

When checking out *#*#7378423#*#* >service info>config. you'll see "Rooting status: Bootloader unlocked allowed: yes" :D
So I'll probably wait for the offical unlock service from SE :p

To enter fastboot press volume up button and plug the USB cable, LED will turn blue
To enter flashmode press volume down button and plug USB cable, LED will turn green
