Sorry i had my semester exams, couldn't keep you updated.
well i tried superoneclick to root my sony live with walkman 4.0.2.A.0.42. It showed that my phone is rooted, superuser app was there but it wasn't working, so i tried the doomlord root kit again.
it worked, it showed gin that successfully rooted phone, but when it was finished, my phone froze with half blank screen. no matter which button i pressed it didn't respond. so i took out the battery and then started phone. well it did start normally again.
superuser app was working, i updated it OTA, but i noticed two abnormalities:
1- The phone turned off frequently without initiation.
2- Messages repeatedly stopped coming for an hour or so(with perfect signals)
how can i fix it?
