    Xperia SP root most resent firmware version 12.0.A.2.254 (Updated) This post so everyone can follow the instructions.
    Doomlord gives some pretty clear instructions but a noob like my self some things does not make sence.

    So the steps to root your phone are.

    1)Download the three files from the download section below (the 3 files in the original thread or in this thread i will put the same excact files)

    2)open FlashTool and flash the XperiaSP_C530X_12.0.A.1.257_KernelOnly.ftf - 6.78 MB file, this is JUST the kernel of an older firmware which was rootable

    2.1)open FlashTool and press the Lightning button

    2.2)Select flashmode and then press ok

    2.3)Select the kernel (ftf file) you want to flash .(for the first flasing as said above is the XperiaSP_C530X_12.0.A.1.257_KernelOnly.ftf file)

    2.4)Unlpug and Power down the device

    2.5)Wait 5 Seconds and the Plug it HOLDING the Volume Down button (this will put the device into flashmode)

    2.6)When it says that the flashing is done unplug and power up the phone to make sure everything went as planned.

    3)After the device booted up enable debugging mode (Settings->Developer Options -> Debugging Mode)

    4)CLOSE FLASHTOOL <<< VERY IMPORTANT STEP!!!

    5)Extract the files from the DooMLoRD_Easy-Rooting-Toolkit_v18_perf-event-exploit.zip in the root directory (anywhere you want basically Doomlord suggested the C directory but any will work just fine)

    !!! ATTENTION AS THIS STEP IS CRUCIAL!!!

    6.0) FOR THIS STEP your phone needs to be in Debugging Mode AND have Unknown Sources Checked (if not go to Settings->Security -> Unknown sources)

    6.1) execute runme_ file corresponding to your OS on desktop PC, this will execute a SPECIAL version of my easy rooting toolkit <<< VVVIMP STEP

    6.1a) If you run windows on your PC run the "runme_win.bat" file

    6.1b) If you run Linux on your PC run the "runme_linux.sh" file

    6.1c) If you run Macintoish (Mac) on your PC run the "runme_mac.sh" file

    6.2) Just double click the file to excecute

    6.3) A window will pop up.Follow the instructions to root your phone (your phone must be in debugging mode (as said above) AND have unknown sources checked (if not watch step 6.0)

    6.4)When the phone is rooted it will restart

    7) Check if your phone is rooted.

    7.1)Open App Drawer and search for an App called SuperSU (it will be the latest version)

    7.2)Open The App and check that everything is ok.If a window pops up saying that the Super SU binary was not found something in the root proccess went wrong)

    8) Once you checked the root state of your device reopen FlashTool.

    8.1)once in FlashTool press the Lightning button

    8.2)Select flashmode and then press ok

    8.3)Select the kernel (ftf file) you want to flash .(for the second flashing you will use the XperiaSP_C530X_12.0.A.2.254_KernelOnly.ftf file)

    8.4)Unlpug and Power down the device

    8.5)Wait 5 Seconds and the Plug it HOLDING the Volume Down button (this will put the device into flashmode)

    8.6)When it says that the flashing is done unplug and power up the phone to make sure everything went as planned.

    9) Once the phone boots enjoy your newly rooted phone

    The 3 Files you need:
    1)http://d-h.st/Kh7 .257 Kernel File
    2)http://d-h.st/1Gp Doomlords Root Toolkit
    3)http://d-h.st/4EO .254 (most recent) Kernel.
