Dude, check here. Did you prepare your phone with everything? How about you check to see if your phone has BusyBox or Superuser installed. If it does, it is rooted.

you cant root with this baseband and android 2.3 one way is to first unlock bootloader and then try or other method is to flash nightelf kernel for 2.3 by flashtool then you be getting cwm then you can download the rootxperia.zip and put it in your sd card and go in cwm and install it thats the only way of getting it rooted with locked bootloader ;)

Baseband has absolutely nothing to do with root process. :)

And stop begging for thanks!

EDIT: and your second way is related with first way. You can't flash custom kernel without unlocking bl, and only unlocking bl won't make it rootable itself. :)

Use flashtool and flash .42 firmware, then root and then OTA update to .62.

Look in the forum, there are different threats about how to root the different firmware versions.
