I have a Xperia Mini Pro and recently I flashed the device in order to install the new ICS. ( before it was introduced to my mobile due to Sony batching process ). It was fine and after flashing I repaired the mobile using Sony Update Service. the mobile works fine but now I want to gain root privileges. I used a guide for this, and in the flashing software, I cannot connect my device in the flash mode to detect it by the software. I cannot even repair the mobile since, it wont get detected by the Sony Update Service. Although the mobile is detected by the pc suite as an external storage device, or as the mobile. what can I do to this. since I’m over my warranty period I cannot go to a service center. It’s very frustrating.
