Rooting your Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman™ the Easy way

With the written approval from DooMLoRD of xda-developers, I would like to share with you an easy way to root your Xperia Live with Walkman™ leaving your Bootloader unharmed! 

Why do you want to Root your Android device?
This article highlighted some of the advantages of having a rooted device.

What you need:
*DooMLoRD's Easy Rooting Toolkit (v3, with newest zergRush binary (16 Nov 2011) and newer superuser files)
*Your Phone drivers (better if you have installed PC Companion on your computer before you begin)

Let's begin!
The script below pretty much says what you will get after using the toolkit and what you need to do before you begin. Good luck!
---------------------------------------------------------------
Easy rooting toolkit (v3.0) created by DooMLoRD
using exploit zergRush (Revolutionary Team)
Credits go to all those involved in making this possible!
---------------------------------------------------------------
[*] This script will:
     (1) root ur device using latest zergRush exploit (16 Nov)
     (2) install Busybox (1.18.4)
     (3) install SU files (binary: 3.0.3 and apk: 3.0.6)
[*] Before u begin: 
     (1) make sure u have installed adb drivers for ur device
     (2) enable "USB DEBUGGING" 
     from (Menu\Settings\Applications\Development)
     (3) enable "UNKNOWN SOURCES"
     from (Menu\Settings\Applications)
     (4) [OPTIONAL] increase screen timeout to 10 minutes
     (5) connect USB cable to PHONE and then connect to PC
  1.  Extract the file you downloaded from the original post using winzip/winrar/7zip in your computer
  2. Go to the folder where you extracted the file and execute "RUNME.bat"
  3. Read and follow the instructions on the screen!
I can confirm this works for Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman™ (WT19i)!
Special thanks to DooMLoRD for this and for the permission to share it here with us!

Root at your own risk.

Cheers!

  2. Are you on the latest firmware 4.0.2.A.0.62? If so, then this Rooting tip will not work unless you flash your phone with an older kernel version (you must have unlocked bootloader to do so).
