Sony Xperia M has been announced just recently and the smartphone packs in some really good specs and features. The smartphone comes with a 4-inch capacitive touchscreen and a 1 GHz dual-core processor. The smartphone do come with some good features but to use it to the fullest, you must root the device.
You can now root Sony Xperia M with the help of the Framaroot app developed Alephzain, a senior member at XDA. This app uses the Gandalf exploit to root your smartphone. You can follow the procedure below to root Sony Xperia M using the Framaroot App.
- Backup all the important data from your smartphone.
- Make sure that the battery is charged up to around 80% or more.
- Enable USB Debugging mode by going to Settings >> Applications >> Development.
