It has been just a few hours since we saw Sony officially rolling out the major bug fixing update 6.2.B.1.96 firmware over previous jelly bean 6.2.B.0.211 firmware. 6.2.B.1.96 firmware has fixed all the major bugs reported in previous updates ranging from 1080p HD Video Lag, Volume up button lag, Camera issues resolved etc.

      I keep getting LT 26i is not supported when i try to root, I have flashed the old kernel and now trying to root. It also says “you need to manage to get remap pfn range addresses.

      Anyideas please

      • Anurag Kumar August 25, 2013 at 8:51 pm - Reply

        well Lt26i is infidelity supported, many have rooted.
        Try re-checking your USB drivers, switch off your phone , use another port…remove any other things which may be taking any of your ports.

      Hello, I need help please, I do something stupid!
      Here I tried my tablet rooter Z2 but I messed up something, let me explain:

      To unlock the bootloader, I got there, it was after that it gets complicated.
      I wanted to install ClockWorkMod Recovery Touch except that on your forum I have not found the right .IMG file that corresponds with my firmware (which is the 17.1.2.A.0.314), so I look internet .IMG the corresponding file. Believing to have found, I renamed it to boot.img and I run the manipulation “fastboot flash boot boot.img” in the command prompt folder Platform tools. Except that my tablet hangs on the Sony logo, makes a funny noise, then reboot non-stop. By against ClockWorkMod Recovery Touch been to install, I get to go overboard. Finally I got there until I make another bull****. I look a bit in the options and I saw that could deactivate or reactivate the bootloader, I know more, I clicked anyways. Now my tablet and not at all to start, I just feel a small vibration at the beginning that’s all, no logo, no light. Please a solution?
      If I uninstall ClockWorkMod Recovery Touch it can walk again?
      If I find the file IMG perhaps? (I think that I made ​​the IMG file download mobile Z2 and not the tablet).
      Help please Thank you

      Excuse me I’m French and I use Google Translate

    • Anurag Kumar August 24, 2013 at 3:33 pm - Reply

      no directly update to 6.2.B.0.96 firmware directly and then you can root as per mentioned steps.

        will this be ok for my xperia sl (LT26ii)

        • Anurag Kumar August 24, 2013 at 7:56 pm - Reply

          yes it will be fine for XS/XSL.

            hi, with my Xperia SL, i have a problem.
            The name of the device is changed in Xperia S lt26i and not Xperia SL lt26ii!
            how do I get it back to normal?

          • Anurag Kumar October 1, 2013 at 10:21 pm -

            this happens when we flash XS kernel to XSL, in case you need to root your device which you have already done i suppose. So now you need to edit the build.prop file and change your device name back to normal.

    I’ve copied the ftf file into the firmare folder in flashtool but when I go to the flashtool UI to select the ftf file,it could not be found. What do I do?

  5. Alex Lacerda August 24, 2013 at 9:22 pm - Reply

    I have two questions:

    The bootloader needs to be unlocked?

    I’ll have to wipe my phone back to original configuration/personalization?

    Sorry about the newbie questions. I never did it before and my XPS is under warranty, so I don’t want to unlock the bootloader and lose it!

    • Anurag Kumar August 24, 2013 at 9:40 pm - Reply

      It is written that above method works on both locked as well as unlocked bootloaders please see.

      you should make a full back up of data via pc companion and apks via antivirus.
      It may happen that you loose your data while flashing.

      P.S rooting voids warranty.

      • Alex Lacerda August 24, 2013 at 10:18 pm - Reply

        About the warranty, if I need to use it, I can restore the phone via pc companion, wich will make it unrooted again. I’m right or Sony still can know if it was rooted?

        • Anurag Kumar August 24, 2013 at 10:55 pm - Reply

          Yes you can restore it. As soon as you flash or update new firmware root goes and warranty is again back and sony will not come to know about it until they read this comment lol 😛

    What about Sony Xperia Acro S? is there any way to root it?

    • Ian August 28, 2013 at 6:27 am - Reply

      It’s easy to root Acro S, I did it last night.

      If you JB installed already, just flash the new ftf of .96, but exclude (untick) the kernal, and this keep your old (.200 or .211) kernal.

      After you have finished flashing the files, re-boot the phone and run Doomlords rooting program. It should work fine.

      Once you have confirmed you have root, use flash tool to flash just the .96 kernal (exclude all other files, by unticking them in flash tool), and you will have rooted .96 on your Acro S.

      Worked like a charm for me, took less than an hour in total, including putting on a recovery.

      • Anurag Kumar August 28, 2013 at 9:47 am - Reply

        Thanks for tip 🙂

        Acro S users, perform in same way as Ian did above 🙂

      • edy August 30, 2013 at 9:15 am - Reply

        can i do the same way if i already update to .96? or down back to 0.211 then do as your method?

    Hi! If I have the version 6.2.B.0.211 already ROOTED it is necessary to flash the “XperiaS_LT26i_6.2.B.0.211_KernelOnly.ftf” file, or I can jump to flash “XperiaS_LT26i_6.2.B.1.96_KernelOnly.ftf ” file???

    • Anurag Kumar September 1, 2013 at 12:03 am - Reply

      See first you need to Flash the FULL JB .96 Firmware….

      Then to root JB .96 firmware you need :-

      # Flashing of JB .211 Kernel
      # Rooting Phone
      # Reflashing JB .96

      • Radu September 1, 2013 at 12:06 am - Reply

      Read the instructions and follow them carefully is what you need to do.

      1. Flash the .96 firmware EXCEPT the kernel. (you can choose to exclude the kernel in flash tool).

      2. Root the .96 firmware.

      3. Flash the .96 Kernel (exclude everything except the kernel of .96 in flash tool).

    I have followed the instruction exactly, when I came to step 5, there is no auto reboot occur and Superuser app doesn’t install. I check with the root check app, they said my phone was not root completely. What should I do?

    I ran the file via the terminal and got the next error:/Documents/DooMLoRD_Easy-Rooting-Toolkit_v18_perf-event-exploit/ line 32: files/adb_mac: No such file or directory

    Anyone here knows a solution?
    ps: i’m quiet new to this, so i’m honestly sorry if this is a real stupid question.

    Thanks in advance!

    I’m using xperia s, already unlocked the bootloader, going fr rooting by ur method, got all the tools downloaded, done flashing .211 ftf, open doomlord cmd mode, all things happened but in the end it shows it rood access cannot be achieved…

    plz help me out, thnks in advance…..

    I cant download the files somehow. My anti-virus also throws a pop-up notification about the dangerous conents of the website. Even when I switch it off, the download link gets me to download an .exe file of 342 kb which offcourse is an infection (I think so). Anyway, Can some body let me know if there is somethin I may be missing out on.
    Any help will be much appreciated.
    Also, I have another doubt. I flashed .211 ftf file a few months ago and my phone is already rooted and I am running PacMan 4.2.2. Now I want to switch to another ROM for which I would need .96 kernel. So should I flash the .96 firmware or should I just flash the kernel? My sole purpose to switch to another ROM is to get my phone to run faster(less lag) and have more RAM. Your blog says with new firmware we would have more RAM available to us. So would it make sense to just flash the whole firmware and not have any ROM cz my purpose will anyways be served with that (i.e, more RAM). Waiting for a response on this.

    Thanks guys ! I have finally rooted my Xperia S. I have one question to ask… How can I now install CWM to be able to install a different ROM?? I tried different ways and methods every single time the installation was successful however there is no way to access it. When I am trying to reboot in the recovery mode the CWM appears on the screen for about 0.1 sec something is automatically selected and the phone begins to boot as usual.

    Please give me some advice what can be going wrong!!! Thanks
