Anyone wanting to root the Sony Xperia M with Towelroot will likely know all about kernels since the Android kernel dated after June 3 does not support this method. When you do get root access to your Xperia M device using the Towelroot one-click method, you can start installing custom kernel and custom ROMs thanks to one of the main custom recoveries that will be available for your device.
The eXperience Pro app is available for rooted Xperia M users and will change your custom kernel experience for ever. With the eXperience Pro app, you can tweak your custom kernels whenever you want and make any changes as you see fit.
