If you want to root with stock kernel--> I have moded Stock Kernel and made it rootable check my signature.. flash this kernel and later google to get ICS root DoomLord method use that to root

Help clear up my confusion

Hello all,
I have a Sony Xperia Neo L that I want to root and have CW Recovery and OC mods so I came across this thread in google.
I am posting to clear a confusion I have with the following instruction :
i think you should unlock your bootloader phone before,check your unlock bootloader allowed by use *#*#7378423#*#*
>service info>configuration

Amin, the configuration screen shows Bootloader Unlock Allowed: Yes in my phone. Does that mean that I have to take no further steps to unlock my bootloader before proceeding to the instruction given by Vasiulla?:confused:
turn on usb debugging and msc mode.
Flash neo v 4.0.3 kernel only file in ftf format with flashtool..
power on now but u cant see display it'll be blank
however usb debugging will work so connect cable and root with "DooMLoRD_v1_Xperia-2011-ICS-ROOT-emu-busybox-su".
Now download Neo L 4.0.4 kenel only ftf file uploaded by me from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1792319 and flash it via flash tool.
If I do need further steps:(, can you please direct me to a post or thread that state these steps:angel:
And Vasiulla I am checking out the thread you gave below.:D
