Ok, I have Xperia P with ICS 4.0.4, build number 6.1.B.0.544. I saw few tutorials for rooting our XP and all of them have too much steps in my opinion. So, I downloaded Flashtool 0.9.6.0 from Flashtool page, installed it on my PC and trz to root my phone with Root button, and simply followed the instructions from Flashtool. Now I have root acess with SuperSU app on my phone!
Could it be simpler than that?


Method for 6.1.B.0.544 and 6.1.B.0.559 update:

Rooting via Flashtool:
1. Download Flashtool 0.9.6.0 from Flashtool Homepage:
http://androxyde.github.com/
2. Install it on your PC
3. Run the Flashtool and connect your phone (enable USB debugging first/turn on unknown sources)
4. Hit the Root button (second in row)
5. When you see "waiting for restore to finish" open your phone and run Backup&Restore app and restore RootMe.tar file.
6. Wait until Flashtool do the rest of work
7. Enjoy!

Don't forget to hit THANKS button!

For those guys who dont have Backup&Restore.apk on their phones u can try to install it manually:
Backup&Restore.zip

EDIT: Method for 6.1.1.B.1.54/6.1.1.B.1.75 update:

1. Download .zip file attached below.
2. Update ur phone via Flashtool or PCC to 6.1.1.B.1.54/6.1.1.B.1.75 update.
3. Flash .559 kernel via Flashtool. (no need for checking kernel number on ur phone if flashing is successfully done, just go to the next step)
4. After flashing reboot ur phone and use regular method above for .544 and .559 firmware.
5. When u r done flash .54/.75 kernel via flashtool and reboot ur phone.
6. Enjoy!

EDIT 2: Method for JB update[LB]:

1. Root any of above ICS ROMs
2. Install OTA RootKeeper from Google Play Store
4. Start OTARootKeeper and click "Protect root"
5. Click "Temp. unroot"
6. Update JB via OTA
7. Enjoy!

If this doesn't work for you try with this method.

Xperia P LT22_6.1.1.B.1.54_Kernel.zip
Xperia P LT22_6.1.1.b.1.75_Kernel.zip

It's a better method for those who are not a good friend with command window, Flashtool does the same but with a friendly interface.

It's possible on locked and unlocked BL, and for unrooting I don't know, I didn't try that.
