Unveiled during Mobile World Congress 2012 last year, the Sony Xperia P had somehow failed to attract much attention from the Android community due to its middling specifications. However if you happens to own the Xperia P, you may want to root the device in order to install custom ROMs as well as other root only applications onto the device. So if you do want to root your device, follow this tutorial closely on how to root the Sony Xperia P. But before we begin, I would like to warn you that during the process of rooting, there is a risk of bricking your own device. So if you still want to proceed, you’ll be doing it at your own risk and we will hold no responsible for any form of damage on your device ( please also note that rooting voids your warranty as well ). Make sure you’ve already backup your device!
