    Good eve guys the thread is all about upgrade live walkman to ICS 4.0.4 and root it

    In this post i want to show you how to upgrade live with walkman (wt19i) firmware to newest android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 (4.1.B.0.431) via offline update method. This june, live with walkwan receive an update for renewing the firmware to ICS via PC Companion (OTA). But some users reported negative issues after upgrading their phone via pc companion (e.g:lag, not smooth, face unlock setting not appear, etc).

    You can resolve those problem (e.g: lag, face unlock dissappear, etc) with flash the firmware/update the firmware via offline method. I have tested this new ICS for a week. I feel this new firmware is very smooth, even more smoother than gingerbread stockrom. thanks for SONY for optimizing this rom.

    For offline flashing you will need:
    Download newest Please or Register to view links

    1. Install downloaded flashtool. extract downloaded firmware-->> .ftf file and place it to C:\Flashtool\firmwares.

    2. Open flashtool.exe. Connect live with walkman to PC via usb cable. don't forget to connect device with USB DEBUGGING ON(go to settings and tap Application-->development).

    3. Click FLASH and choose flashhmode on mode selector:

    4. now choose the firmware then click ok:

    5. Enter the flashmode. unplug the usb cable, turn off your phone. press and hold volume down button and plug the usb cable. then release the vol down button.
    6. wait until the device rebooted. Now you have ICS instaled on live with walkman.

    HOW TO ROOT??:

    *LOCKED bootloader rooting method:

    n some case this tool doesn't work on win 7(or other version). So? open the "device manager" on win 7. look at "SEMC HSUSB DEVICE" if there is (!) mark, its mean your device not detected properly. just right click the "SEMC HSUSB DEVICE" -->update driver software-->search automatically for updated driver software. win 7 will automatically search the driver it self (internet connection needed).

    Continuation about
    *UNLOCKED bootloader rooting method:

    If you had unlocked bootloader is easy to root th device.
    after flashhing ICS 4.0.4, install the custom kernel, use kamarush kernel lite V3 for live with walkman
    (download) Or
    you can use rage Please or Register to view links
    install the kernel, how to install kernel?
    Below is the tutorial:
    how to overclock live with walkman (wt19i) with rage kernel
    tutorial how to overclock live with walkman (wt19i) using RAGE kernel (custom kernel).

    rage kernel has:
    - Overclock up to 2Ghz
    - CWM Recovery
    - Prerooting
    - CPU Governors:
    and other improvement

    4.0.2.A.0.48/52/61/62/74 gingerbread rom. Or Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 (4.1.B.0.431).
    Unlocked bootloader = you can unlock officially or using test point method (i recommend unlock with test point method)

    Tutorial:how to unlock live with walkman (wt19i) bootloader with test point method
    if you want to install mod kernel or another custom rom that need unlocked boot loader. there is easy way to unlock live with walkman (wt19i) bootloader. actually sony ericsson provide official unlock bootloader, just register your imei and you will get the unlock code. But, in official way you will lose some features like DRM and track id.

    Why test point? the main reason for using test point method is you will not lose DRM and track id features.
    First important step: Use the 0.58 firmware on rooted condition!!! if you on 0.62 downgrade it!
    now check your phone: open dial pad, press *#*#7378423#*#*
    tap sevice info > configuration. see rooting status if: Bootloader Unlock Allowed: Yes. you can continue next step.

    You will need:
    - cable +/- 5 cm - 8 cm long.
    - pin/needle
    - S1Tool software Please or Register to view links

    make wire as shown below

    the live with walkman test point
    the pin/needle to red dot, the other end to negative battery (red circle)

    - now extract downloaded S1Tool.
    - attach test point, then connect your phone with usb cable.
    - windows will ask you for update the driver, browse the driver from S1Tool folder.


    install this driver software anyway



    - run s1tool.exe

    click pâtch SEMCboot, then test point ready





    will appear:"PROCESSING …


    - if successful will appear log like this:

    running s1_loader ver "r4a062"
    loader aid: 0001
    flash id: "00Ec/0083"
    loader version: "r4a069"

    semc simlock certificate, proceeding
    elapsed:155 secs.




    the "r" lower case on "r4a069" means unlock was successful.

    NB: rooting status still written "bootloader unlock allowed: Yes "

    do it with your own risk!!


    how to install kernel:
