The Sony Xperia Acro S smartphone is not a well known smartphone but still it has very decent specs. Here, is the rooting tutorial for that device. It is not quite a one-click method, but it is pretty close.

To use this method users will need a few Acro S files, Flashtool, and the device drivers. One of the good thing of this tutorial is you no need to unlock your bootloader.

Sony Xperia Acro S



  • Application Settings: [Unknown sources] checked {Allowed}
  • Applications Settings: Development [USB debugging] checked {Allowed}
  • Application Settings: Development [Stay awake] checked {Allowed}
  • Settings -> Display settings [Screen timeout] Set to 30 minutes

If your screen goes off just once then you won’t be able to return to the installation properly. It’s very important. And also think about your battery and try to keep the display brightness to a minimum.

  • Please use a regular picture for the background. Do not use the default live wallpaper.
  • Then don’t forget to charge your battery. You should have minimum 80%.
  • Then backup your datas completely. Because there is a chance to wipe your datas.
