You need an earlier kernel without the pach which makes this rooting method impossible... (.562)

Hi everybody,

for those of you using linux, I made a little bash script for rooting.
by now its tested on an unlocked NEo V and a locked Arc S.
Added option to install CWMinstaller for Xperia (not working for NeoV). Added unroot and Wipe option.

Android SDK must be installed.

to use it, extract folder, open terminal and navigate to extracted folder. Start by typing "./rootme.sh"

Tested on Neo MT15i, thanks

This might be a very stupid questions, but the thread title says Rooting Toolkit for Xperia 2011 ICS [FW:.562]{LOCKED & UNLOCKED BOOTLOADERS}

My bootloader isn't unlocked yet and by checking the bootloader status with the service code (#*#*.....) it says bootloader unlockable no

So in short it means I should better not go through the procedure described in post #1 because I can't unlock my bootloader, correct?

How exactly could I go back to the stock firmware? My android version is 4.0.4, kernel 2.6.32.9 and build 4.1.B.0.587
Xperia Arc LT15a

    [ROOT] Rooting Toolkit for Xperia 2011 ICS [FW:.562]{LOCKED & UNLOCKED BOOTLOADERS}

    [ info ]


    FOR WINDOWS ONLY


    THIS WILL WORK ON BOTH LOCKED AND UNLOCKED BOOTLOADERS


    ok guys so i was directed to this post:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=24847709&postcount=18

    where the user rasgula has posted a rooting toolkit...

    it was slightly difficult to use for some users so i have modified it to make it fully automated with least user interaction ;) also as a bonus it will install busybox too...


    for those who dont know this is the well known old "andorid emulator" hack/trick... its surprising that Sony left those permissions on /data partitions... Dan rosenberg has posted lots of research material regarding this kind of hack for other android devices...


    Credits for this go to the person who found that this old trik/hack works on Sony's Xperia 2011 ICS firmware!


    anyways the rooting toolkit is in the downloads section below



    [ requirements ]

    1. stock ICS firmware 4.1.A.0.562 for your device
    2. ADB drivers installed (if u are not sure, then install this)
    3. the attached package


    [ READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY! ]

    This script will:
    1. root ur device using "andorid emulator" trick
    2. install Busybox (1.18.4)
    3. install SU files (ICS specific)
    4. do some checks for free space, tmp directory (will remove Google Maps if required)


    Before u begin:
    1. make sure u have installed adb drivers for ur device
    2. enable "USB DEBUGGING" - from (Menu\Settings\Developer Options\Development)
    3. enable "UNKNOWN SOURCES" - from (Menu\Settings\Security)
    4. [OPTIONAL] increase screen timeout to 10 minutes
    5. connect USB cable to PHONE and then connect to PC
    6. skip "PC Companion Software" prompt on device


    [ WARNING ]

    make sure that no other adb server is running in background (e.g.: Flashtool, PCC, SEUS) and disable any antivirus




    [ how to install? ]

    1. make sure that you are on stock ICS firmware 4.1.A.0.562
    2. download the file posted below and save it on c:\
    3. extract ALL the files in the zip
    4. now just double click on "runme.bat"
    5. sit back read the on screen instructions
    6. the device will reboot a couple of times
    7. when the script finishes it will say "ALL DONE"
    8. enjoy!

    this driver installer is for windows only and is bundled along with FlashTool in the (Flashtool\drivers\ folder)... i am seperatly posting this here incase someone needs it..

    A HUGE THANKS to my friend Androxyde, who created this amazing driver installer package


    just double click the installer and follow on-screen instructions
