Re: {GUIDE} How to Root Xperia™ Smartphones

it looks a very nice guide!

but i don't understand these steps:

3. After rooting you have to backup your rootfiles !(Extract Folder "Xperia-ROOT backup and Repush") For doing this launch the Command called "01-local-prop.cmd" your rootfiles will be stored in Data!

6.Now with USB-Debugging on you have to re-push your rootfiles again ! For doing this launch the Command called "02-push-root-files.cmd"

how we launch commands?
