Rooting ics is pretty not easy as rooting gingerbread.......


You cant root your phone directly using DOOLORD rooting kit...


Here is how to root sony android phone running on ics...


1. Flash tool : Install it in your pc.

I. Downgrade: 

Since rooting directly in 4.0.4 is not possible, one needs to downgrade to a rootable GB ROM to root. (Skip this step if you are already in GB).

To Downgrade, you need to flash an old GB ROM ftf to your device. 


Download the kernel for the corresponding phone

Proceed as you did in downgrading, placing the 4.0.4 firmware in /firmware folder this time; and selecting it in step 4.
In step 4, make the check boxes look like this.



Proceed with the flashing Process.

Here, you can also use PC Companion or Sony Update Center if you want for updating. While updating with SUS, make you sure you perform the recommended install and do not wipe data.

Once the flashing is done, turn ON the device (If using PCC or SUS you will be prompted to turn ON). During the first boot, the device might reboot. In that case, after second boot it will turn on normally.
In case it gets into bootloop, proceed to next step right away.
Else proceed to next step with your phone turned ON.

V. Root 4.0.4 ROM: 

From the Xperia-ROOT.rev3.zip file you downloaded earlier in step 3, open the file 02-push-root-files.cmd.



Follow the on-screen instructions.
Device will reboot.
Once re-boot is done, you will have SuperUser installed in the 4.0.4 ROM.
