Xperia Arc (LT15i) Andoid 4.04 root

This a question about rooting an Xperia Arc (LT15i) recently upgraded to Android 4.04 using PC companion.

I have tried a number of methods to root my phone. I appears that all of the excellent software and guides (Doomlord etc) do not work if you have Andoid 4.04. I have tried to flash a rootable version of 4.04, or 4.03, but this does not work, or have not found the correct method. Most of the files that are supposed to do this do not have .tft extensions so flash does not accept them.

I have 2 specific questions:

1) Has anyone successfully downgraded 4.04 to a rootable version? If so I would really appreciate specific (simple!!) help.

2) Any news that Doomlord, or another expert, is making a one click method to root on 4.04?

I hate bloatware!!!

Lastly, I have considered using some of the custom Roms, like Ice Cream Pureness, but I'm not experienced enough to get this installed!

Thanks in advance.
