On the Specific Request, This is a Tutorial to Root Sony Android Phones, But the Procedure for Sony phones is a bit complicated in comparison to Samsung Phones.
First of all we have to unlock the Boot-loader of the Phone & then rooting can be done.
Advice: Don’t do it without reason!!
Before Unlocking the Boot-loader, Some pros and Cons:
Pros:
  • You can flash custom ROMs/Kernels
  • You dont need to worry if the new firmware can be rooted or not as with unlocked bootloader u can always ROOT ur device
  • Sony gives sneak-peaks/preview builds of latest OS which requires unlocked bootloaders, as they did with Xperia 2011 line (they had ICS alpha/beta), so who knows may be Sony may give early builds of ICS (JellyBean???)
  • Sony itself Supports unlocking Boot-Loaders.
Cons:
  • Your phone can be brick, It steps not performed properly.
  • It is not Possible for every phone, You have to check it via a Secret Code of service Menu: *#*#7378423#*#*
    • In your phone, tap Service info > Configuration > Rooting Status. If Boot-loader unlock allowed says Yes, then you can continue. If it says No, or if the status is missing, your device cannot be unlocked.
