SE Arc root with GingerBreak APK
If you getting "could not extract assets" error execute
adb shell rm /data/local/tmp/*
adb shell rmdir /data/local/tmp
adb shell mkdir /data/local/tmp
This correct the permission issues.
Then run apk again.
There are many post talking about unlocked bookloader, do not try it, if you unlock ARC bootloader, you will never able to flash SE STOCK ROM update again, such as 3.0 etc
i tried the gingerbreak but it doesn`t work even after waiting for 20 min nothin happened..
i also saw on youtube that by downgradin the arc to 2.3.2 u can root with gingerbreak and then ota update back to 2.3.3 with root access without unlocking bootloader is it possible and safe...
sorry for being a noob i am an amaetur in this pls help me...
As you quoted earlier about bootloader i wanted know whether if unlocking the arc... are you saying that i wouldn`t be able to update my phone further (to 2.3.4, 2.4, 3.0, etc) by OTA or pc companion released by sony.?
and is there by any chance phone getting bricked..?
i also read in one forum that bootloader can be relocked it says "XDA member ‘Blagus’ has made it possible. Yeah, the genius has created a small (98 KB) magical file that needs to be flashed using “Flashtool” to re-lock the boot loader" could it be true
if in case i unlock it and root it i can still use the customs roms and update the customs as they release right,,, anyone just give me ur opinion guys is it worth unlocking for customs roms.... thnks
