    Rooting Sony Xperia U - Need some assistance

    Well, it's come to this point where it feels as if I've tried literally everything and I'm just getting more pissed by the minute.
    I can't ROOT my god damn phone, this one is pesky.

    So if anyone could help me, that'd be swell.

    Here's some info that might help you to help me.
    It's;
    Modelnumber ST25i
    It's running 4.0.4 Android (ICS)
    and I'm not sure which kernel it is, this thing is confusing but according to the internet I have something that ends with 54 I believe.
    It says this exactly below kernel
    3.0.8+
    BuildUser@BuildHost#1
    SMP PREEMPT Mon Oct 15 14:57:07 2012.


    I've tried several methods of rooting but none in specific, I've also tried to flash it to an older ROM but I can't seem to fucking get it to work.

    So, any help here?

    Update it to ICS 4.x.x
    It doesn't have to be rooted to update plus ICS gives you automatic Root. Once you have ICS and rooted you can update it to JB 4.2.

    OR

    Restore it to factory settings.

    Really? I have 4.0.4 is it pre-rooted?
    Sounds very unlikely, although I have not checked.

    If you have that, yes it is.
    Try downloading a root required app from Google Play. If it runs, it is rooted.
