I'm sorry it didn't work for you... Slightly frowning Face

A silly question perhaps, but you did remember to flash the 4.1.A.0.562 kernel first, right?

Edit: If it helps, I documented everything I did (with screenshots) when I upgraded and rooted my Xperia Ray here:

(There is a "Rooting" section at the end of the document).

Hello

The link to the "latest" version for the mini (4.1.B.0.587) appears to be broken.  Can anyone point me to a valid download site?

Thanks

Tom
