Im going to show you how to root Xperia X8 2.1 directly!

1. Download modified "SuperOneClick".
2. Enable "USB Debug".
3. Connect phone to "PC" and select "Charge Phone".
4. Open "SuperOneClick" and select "Root".
5. Wait!
6. When it is done, reboot.

Now you have rooted Xperia X8 2.1 without flashing.

Say thanks to:

CLShortFuse - for making "SuperOneClick".
sonty - for making exploit script.
velnens123(ME) - for making this tutorial.

Root Access

Anybody tried to run some applications which requires root access after rooting.

It looks like superuser used is pushed into phone. But when you are running the applications which require root access, not getting any pop-up for allowing denying... any clues...

Working fine now.... Probably you need to add one last step.

6. After rooting, Reboot the phone to start using apps which need root permission.
