Before we begin, you must agree that I'll be not held responsible if anything goes wrong or your phone gets bricked or lightning strikes it while following this guide. You try this guide at your own risk. This guide has been personally built and tested by me on my own Xperia ZR phone and works great without any issues. Make sure you read the instructions very carefully before you start.
Hello people, this is a pre-rooted flashable zip file containing stock 4.3 rom of build number 10.4.B.0.569 built for Xperia ZR phone user's in INDIA.
This rom is rooted. Has no bugs except Sony's official 4.3 bugs. This rom is not modified in any way and nothing has been added or deleted. This is a pure stock rom with the additional privilege of Root access. CWM Recovery has not been added due to issues with offline charging.
1)Downgrade to 4.1.2 stock rom with build 10.1.1.A.1.310 and root it using DooMLoRD_Easy-Rooting-Toolkit and also install recovery. (Please search for C5502(ZR)_4.1.2_10.1.1.A.1.310(IN) ftf file and doomlord's easy rooting toolkit on XDA. You'll find it very easily so I'm not providing links)
2)Download the 4 files at the link below and when finished join the splitted files using the hjsplit software provided in the download link then Copy SuperSU_fix and C5502_4.3_Stock_INDIAN_Pre-Rooted.zip files to your SD Card.
3)Boot into recovery and first flash the C5502_4.3_Stock_INDIAN_Pre-Rooted.zip and then SuperSU_fix.
4)Pull out battery after step three is finished. Re-insert battery after few seconds. Do not turn on the phone.
5)Flash C5502_10.4.B.0.569_Generic_IN.ftf file using FlashTool with "Exclude- System" marked in the checkbox before flashing it. (Do not forget to mark the exclude "System" before flashing via FlashTool otherwise it will overwrite the zip files we just flashed above)
6)Turn on the phone and Enjoy the INDIAN variant for our Xperia ZR phone.
# If anything goes wrong in the above steps, then flash the complete C5502_10.4.B.0.569_Generic_IN.ftf or the 4.1.2 ftf file using flashtool to boot into a fresh stock rom.
# Your data will be lost. So back it up.
# Do not update busybox at any cost otherwise you'll loose root privileges
