I've been trying to root my xperia ray device by following the instruction given in this post. It doesn't seem to work properly for me. Whenever I try to flash with 4.1.A.0.562 kernel it says that my device USB debugging is off even when I've ticked it. Also I've put it onto MSC mode. When I try to put it on flash mode both kernel.sin & loader.sin is grayed out. Below is the log what I get.

And I've attached a sample screen of what I get. Please advise me what to do.. I'm totally lost... even the log says flashing finished, my current kernel build is in 4.1.A.0.587 but not 4.1.A.0.562.

Do these:

  • Download flashtool(I did from 4shared).
  • Turn on Usb Debugging
  • Turn on Unknown Sources
  • Install flashtool in C: drive.
  • Extract doomlord's zergrush tool in C:.
  • Download both the kernels and first paste first one, which is 4.1.a.0.562 in firmware folder of flashtool.
  • Switch off phone.
  • Start flashtool, select flash icon, select flashmode.
  • When window gets open,double click on the kernel name.
  • When prompt window open,connect your phone pressing volume down key.
  • Make sure that your adb drivers are installed, then flashing will happen.
  • Disconnect phone when completed and restart it.
  • After 15 second(even Sony logo won't be shown, only backlight), connect phone to system. Wait for the adb drivers to be installed.
  • Go to where you extracted your doomlord's tool and double click runme.bat file.
  • Wait for around five minutes until it says DONE.
  • Disconnect phone and remove battery.
  • Replace the kernel in flashtool firmware folder with 4.1.b.0.587.
  • Open flashtool and click flash icon.
  • DoubleClick kernel file then connect phone in flashmode.
  • Disconnect phone when flashing completed.
  • Disconnect phone and restart it.

Your Ray is rooted now. Then install by using CWM installer.exe from the same system. Enjoy romz...
