    I recently bought a Sony Xperia J (st26a) Running 4.1.2 (11.2.A.0.33)
    and am trying to gain root access so I can get rid of some of the crappy bloatware apps that are hogging a couple hundred megs of my precious storage space. I have looked into unlocking the boot-loader but it seems it's not possible on this model of phone and have spent a few days searching for some answers online but haven't found any :/
    If anybody has any ideas or insights I would greatly appreciate any help or advice.

    Thanks! :)

    Try Kingo. (The forum isn't handling the URL correctly for some reason.) They don't list your phone, but they have roots for a lot of phones they don't list. It's free. (There used to be some controversy about it, but it seems that they've fixed the issue [a social one, not a technical one].)

    Putting it down here seems to work.

    Thanks for your quick response! I am happy to report that it worked perfectly and my Xperia J is successfully rooted and has an extra 200-250mb free thanks to removing all those stupid bloatware apps.
