unfortunately the only way to root after updateing to 4.0.2.a.0.62 is to flash the 4.0.2.a.0.42 Kernal with flashtool, Im pretty sure you don't need unlocked bootloader to flash original SE Kernals... so just flash the old Kernal and you should be able to root again..

Otherwise if its not too late for other users I would just stay away from the new update until there is an easy rooting method, the update doesn't offer any real advantages.. AFAIK only a few minor bug fixes.

Have a great Christmas!
