OBTAINING ROOT FOR XPERIA P ICS
Download the .tft file here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...1838457&page=3 & then change the .tft to .zip & extract just kernel.sin, you will need this to get back to stock ICS kernel later on.
  1. Enter Fastboot mode by holding UP volume key while plugging in USB
  2. Fastboot flash this kernel: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1676862 & boot into CWM by holding UP VOL KEY when the blue light lights up
  3. Download the SuperUser zip file located here: http://androidsu.com/superuser/ & choose the ARM device type
  4. Send the Superuser zip file anywhere to the sdcard
  5. Flash SuperUser & Power off again
  6. Fastboot mode again, and flash the stock kernel.sin that you extracted from the .tft file
  7. Enjoy root =)
