    I rooted my phone via this method and i’m not 100% sure if framaroot was the cause but my phone went into boot loop. in the end i had to re-flash the stock ROM just be careful!

    The right Application to root Xperia M C1905 is Towelroot. The app Framaroot doesn’t work on Xperia M C1905.
    I have rooted my Sony Xperia M C1905 with Towelroot and it works well.
