Rooting my Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro (SK17i)

After using Xperia Mini Pro for 4 months, today I decided to root my android phone. Not that I'm worry about my phone getting bricked because of rooting, I just want to keep the warranty intact for a while.

For the rooting process, I was just following the instruction posted in xda developer forum.

 How to root your Xperia mini pro (sk17i) / Xperia mini (sk15)

The procedure is very straight forward. It shouldn't take more than 3 minutes.


The process.

Please note that this procedure is for Windows only.

1. Download the DooMLoRD_v3_ROOT-zergRush-busybox-su.zip and extract the downloaded file.
2. Go to the folder where its extracted, locate "runme.bat" and execute it.
3. Follow the instruction on the screen.

Here's the complete process.
