This is Easy Root Tool for various Xperia devices (first developed for Z1 Compact). It's almost one-click root. The tool should work on Windows, Linux and Mac. Bootloader is untouched! No data is being wiped.

Note: Does not work on latest firmwares of most devices. Check your device forum for a work around (you should be able to flash kernel of old firmware to root and then flash back latest kernel).

What you get
  • Root
  • Access to /system rw

Requirements
  • USB debugging enabled
    Settings => About phone => Click 7 times on Android Build to unlock developer options
  • Unknown sources enabled
    Settings => Security
  • adb drivers installed

How to use
  1. Download the attachment (latest version) and extract it
  2. Start your device and plug it to your computer
  3. Run install.bat and follow the instructions on screen
  4. Congratulations! You should now be rooted.

I have an error/question!
  • stuck at cleaning up
    Quote:

    • Close tool and run again.

    .
  • error: more than one device or emulator
    Quote:

    • Uninstall BlueStacks.

    .
  • stuck at Waiting for device
    Quote:

    • Make sure device is connected
    • Make sure USB-debugging is enabled
    • Make sure no Sony PC Companion or other Sony software is running
    • Make sure you have adb drivers installed (Example)
    • Make sure the computer is permanently authorized for connection on the phone (you get a dialog the first time you connect)

    .
  • How to unroot?
    Quote:

    • Flash factory firmware in flashtool. Exclude everything except system. No need to wipe anything.

    .
  • Will I keep root after factory reset?
    Quote:

    • Yes. You 'might' have to reinstall SuperSU though (depending on the installation method).

Did you use the SuperSU from market? Because it's a known issue this SuperSU can not update binary. Use latest one from here: http://download.chainfire.eu/447/Sup...SU-v1.99r4.zip
