GRACIAS (thanks) BROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

this right but also a tutorial in Spanish for my brother, thanks I also am of Peace, but the simplest is to take root in any model of SE and then updated and ready companion for pc not lose ROOT, I I did and it worked, since there is no root for 62 version
:p

mine doesnt want to turn on..

i explain: i have .62 originally, so i downgraded using flashtool to .42, then i root it using your link. Then I update back to .62 using the in-phone update (not the pc) but the phone doesnt restart. If i press the power button, i can see the green led light very weak and the phone doesnt do anything.

-in spanish now :p
he seguido las instrucciones, originalmente tenía el .62 asi que le hice downgrade a la .42 usando flashtool. Luego le hice root siguiendo el enlace que has puesto.

Una vez vi el icono de super user, intenté actualizarlo de vuelta a la .62 pero el telefono luego de hacer el allante del upgrade, no quiere prender. Presiono el boton de power y solo se ve el bombillito verde que prende bien tenue pero no hace nada..

any advice? algun consejo?

Saludos desde Londres ;)

Try removing the battery and wait about 5 minutes to turn it on, if not try to flash again with the FlashTool, try to have a secure network to download the update

not probe because in my country the .69 update does not come out yet, but should work, but in this case if you go back to the 42 and rooteas is have you on the upgrade to .69 for ota

for those who using FW.62 or .69 you have to downgrade to .58 FW 1st then root using this kit...after root u can upgrade ur firmware Over-The-Air(OTA) the root still remain there...

u may use the WotanServer.com to downgrade....while it still free^_^ try using Trade Germany firmware cuz it gave u update .69 i'm using it now...and i'm from Malaysia and live here its work perfectly on me....^_^

this is my tips for noob...cuz im a noob too:p
