  • Chad Sexington

    What does pre-rooted mean? It’s a ROM that has already been rooted and once installed your device is automatically rooted?

  • come on sony where is the new 4.3 JB update

  • Ghayyath El Masri

    Sorry to sound ignorant but I don’t know much about rooted and pre-rooted..I’ve never done anything with my phone related to those things, does this mean I can still install it?

  • Akshay Gupta

    I would say fuck off! But that would be too mainstream. So you can shut your fucking large pie hole. You got the update and now just stfu.

    @akshay.. u said that… all were screaming for 4.1.. they got that it now. and now they asking for 4.3 if they get that they will start screaming again for 5.0 key lime pie. humans can’t be satisfied with what they got…. disgusting attitude really…

  • If you haven’t fiddled with your phone previously (take as unlocking bootloader or rooting it) you should stay away from this as it’s not aimed for your device. You should get the official OTA/PC Companion update.

  • jhjda

    Yes, it means that it has already been rooted.

    Hi, just letting you know that my phone just got the official update.

  • Alex

    Can you guys not take a joke? Lighten up

  • Rob

    Considering 4.3 is not released yet he’s most likely just trying to be funny. No need to go all deep

  • christere

    So this can’t be used if I haven’t rooted my phone before?

  • boosook

    Respect DooMLoRD!

  • DoucheyTuesday

    Wow forget old comes the MooDLoRD! (hope I got your CAPS right!) moooooooooo!

  • DoucheyTuesday

    Professor Dmitry Lazarev has been put in charge of the 4.3 update him

  • Techie Monstaaa

    nice, i probably try this in the summer when i have some time :D

  • Brian

    Dear Malaysians, Jelly Bean is outttt! Update via computer :D

  • sXs

    You can use it, but need some knowledge about what you are doing, otherwise , you might get a dead device if you make a mistake.. Also doing such things void your warranty.. First of all read around and learn it (rooting and other stuff), then do it..

  • sXs

    You are a pain in the arse

  • Arokhantos

    Hate say it but nexus devices don’t even have 4.3 yet so kindy pointless asking for it, tough it would be nice if sony could be much faster updating to 4.3 then they been in past updating to 4.1 4.0 etc

  • Buerns

    Ufff I have the same version and the same language but still no update…I have a generic rom, not branded. ARRRGH anxiety!!!

  • Kazuo Sat?

    my phone has the stock JB recently installed on it, will this work if I flash it?
    need root access (locked BL)

  • Guest

    Or is there any other way to root?
    Standing by for definite answer, don’t want to brick my phone

  • Kazuo Sat?

    Nevermind, Ill wait for easier method

  • Joe Merol

    Oh they promoted him?
    Good for him.

  • Mazharul Islam

    u jst went full retard! … never go FULL RETARD!

  • Akash Tadmare

    how to go in ClockwordMod Recovery mode? pls reply soon…m waiting

  • boosook

    well, being prerooted this is intended for people who don’t have rooted their phones already! :) the point is that the fact that the rom is prerooted does not mean you will be able to flash it without dedicating some time browsing the internet, reading instructions, reading forums and so on.

  • Xperia s user

    Hope Sony can fix some bugs on camera…

  • christere

    Sure. I meant rooted on previous firmware or so. Thanks for the answer.

  • ~There need to be a way to root without reverting back to .55 with locked bootloader.

  • XD

  • Vijender Sangwan

    I updated my xperia s 2 weeks ago via pc companion to official jelly bean (4.1.2 Build 6.2.B.0.200). As warranty period for my phone is over…i want to root my device….although I have read about rooting ,but have never done something like rooting or flashing a custom ROM…so can anyone guide me step by step to root my device? what are the benifits of a rooted device compared to non-rooted device (particulary for xperia s) and what are the downsides ? Can I increase the clock frequency after rooting and remove the preinstalled bloatware?
    any help will be appreciated.
