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?
