Re: {GUIDE} How to Root Xperia™ Smartphones

satyanreddyg On first page, reply number

nrto60 Just flash the rom again and root it

Using superoneclick might have altered the files thus causing these issues

akosijesselle Have you installed many apps on your phone ?

Here is how http://talk.sonymobile.com/message/398679#398679

Re: {GUIDE} How to Root Xperia™ Smartphones

akosijesselle I didn't create any guide for bootloader unlocking as we have it already mate

unlockbootloader.sonymobile.com

Feel free to clear your doubts if any Slightly smiling Face

I can tell you how to install custom roms ( On unlocked bootloader ), although each has it's own way

sarathkoz

You didn't mention kernel versions,

So letme tell you in brief what you need to do

1) flash 4.1.A.562 kernel of xperia ray ( if ray not working then go for neo v kernel )

2) Run the rooting toolkit, This would root your phone.

3) Flash the 4.1.b.0.587 kernel to get back to stock

satyanreddyg That's normal, go ahead Slightly smiling Face
