How to Root Sony Xperia S/SL/Acro S/ION on Android 4.0.4 ICS Firmware

It was difficult to achieve root on Xperia phones running stock ICS firmwares. But now there is a way out. A simple rooting tool is available for Sony Xperia S, SL, Acros S and ION. The interesting thing about this tool is that it can even root phones with locked bootloader (of course it roots unlocked bootloaders too). Thanks to Chinese developer eroot for bringing out this awesome rooting tool. Currently it is tested on below mentioned phones but I’ve tried it on my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 & it works on it as well. So there is probability that it will work on other devices too. But I am not sure about it.

Anyways, move on further & follow these simple steps to root your Xperia Smartphone (which was never possible before, so easily)…
