root/unroot xperia neo

Hi,

I am currently using xperia neo with 2.3.4. I may update with ICS later.

I would like to root my neo and explore more and want to unroot back when ever I require (may be go to update ICS etc..)

Could anybody who has done root/unroot or xperia neo, please provide me steps or a good link which explains steps without confusion ( as I am dumb in android).

Is there any app that does root/unroot for my neo? like i will install that app and will just click and do that flip etc..

Thanks in advance.

See how to root here

To unroot, reinstall your phone's software using pc companion

Don't worry about unroot, if you mobile is rooted you could still be able to update without any problem
