Thanks Naabel. I have a XPERIA mini pro Sk17a.
I installed the last firmware. Now I have ICS in my phone. My bootloader is lock. I made my phone Root and installed a patch for the LED bug, this patch is really fine and functional, this patch it's from xda developers and support for 4.1.B.0.587.
I just want say Thanks Naabel.
Just one thing more: I have a Sk17a and installed 4.1.B.0.587 for Sk17i. All function perfectly, 3G included. I'm from México.

horsfalli TO know if your mobile is rooted, download titanium backup from google play and see what status does it shows.
To know about bootloader, connect your phone to PC Companion and try updating it, Don't really update it but just follow the steps to update your phone. If bootloader is unlocked, PC Companion would show modified software
firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for posting in this thread
asyhok Just follow the steps once again, it should work
Carefull mark the setting in your phone and flashtool. Do it.

Hi Asyhok ,
My guess is that you would have left ur Flash tool Open while performing DoomLord Trick. Please note that you have to close Flash tool before proceeding to DoomLord trick. Try this and let us know if this worked..
