Re: {GUIDE} How to Root Xperia™ Smartphones

I just read your PM Nabeel, I just hope that you would succeed in rooting Xperia Go (THE EASY WAY),

and other Xperia handsets. You are right, most methods out there were too complicated

and are very risky especially to those who are kinda one-click-people. I hope you know what

I mean. Hehe..

Thanks a lot!!

You can flash a pre root firmware if you really need root access.

Re: {GUIDE} How to Root Xperia™ Smartphones

andrew66 Already there.

pandher Does it happen only when you play temple run.

eljunpacomios Kind of failing at the moment, and then there's a new build now.

All I can say is Xperia S / SL are very close.. Once it works on these 2 phone, it would only need small modifications to make it work on other phones.

AC100 Try running the rooting toolit once again and see if that error vanishes. It seems phone is not completely rooted.
