That method is for unlocked boot loaders.

Currently there is no way to root on 4.0.4 with locked bootloaders. But we will have ways to root on locked bootloaders soon. Just keep waiting.

Thank You,

Re: Need help to root ICS 4.04 without unlock bootloader !

Hmmm? Did not get you.

You can root without unlocking bootloader using exploits. Some way developers find out to acess protected files (Example: We have the ZergRush exploit to root GB .58).

But the companies, in their next updates keep adding layers of protection due to which the exploits do not work (Example: the .62 firmware disabled the ZergRush exploit).

Similarly, for the 4.0.4 there is currently no way to root locked bootloaders.

All this I think. Correct me if I am wrong.

Thank You,

Rick

Right, and before that I got the msg saying:

We are undergoing maintainance. Please comeback in 10 to 15 mins.

Well, here I am unable to kep myself paitent. Even though I can wait for years for Sony to give the ICS update, I can not wait a min for XDA to come back to life. :smileywink:
