Cydia Impactor

How it works?

It used the Master key exploit to drop SuperSU binary, if the master key exploit does not work it will attempt to use another Signature Bug found in Android.

What is the Master Key Exploit?

The Master Key Exploit was discovered by BlueBox Security, it can modify the contents of an application package without affecting the cryptographic signatures.

Would it work on Your Xperia?

If you are running anything below 4.4 KitKat then Yes this would work on Your Xperia!

If you have the Xposed Master Key Exploit Patch this will not work.

And On Stock KitKat it may or may not work (Not Tested)

Getting the same error. For those facing device not found error, check your phone for a dialogue to provide access to the app. Too bad this doesn't work, would have been great for the Xperia Z on Android 4.3.

It is because the master key exploit is patched by Sony as early as .244(4.2) firmware (if I remember correctly)

How do you install the program. Tried to run it with the tablet connected to PC via USB. Clicked on impactor.exe, clicked start and all I get is "no device found". I am able to copy the Impactor folder to the tablet internal and external sdcard and run impactor.exe but I get no device found.
I am on Android version 4.2.2. Any ideas?

Enable USB Debugging and install drivers!

Then just hit start and Install SuperSU!

Thank you UltraGamerHD. Enabling USB is a given. Like I mentioned, I was able to copy to both internal and external sd cards from my PC. I think that means USB is enabled. I guess you install Impactor on the PC, plug the tablet into USB and make sure USB is enabled and then run the impacter.exe. I still get device not found error. I also tried installing SuperUser SU using an UPDATE.zip thru the recovery mode. It appeared to run just fine then heartbreak, I got "Installation Aborted". Several people have gotten root so I know it can be done. At the moment, nothing is working for me. The only thing I haven't tried is the ADB approuch. I don't know how to use it. I have JS Terminal from the app store installed. Maybe someone can give me a link to step by step input instructions for using the terminal to get root.

Side question: I installed ES File Explorer and I am able to open the system folder and see xbin and open xbin. I see busybox and sqlite3 amoung other files in the xbin folder. I do not see an su file though. I thought you could not open system without root. Do I have root and not know it? Anybody have any idea whats going on with my tablet? I am running windows 8.1 on my PC. I don't know if that is relavant or not.
