Default [Guide][T,TL,V,TX] DIRECT ROOT + RECOVERY on Android 4.3

  • Direct root on any 4.3 firmware, so you DON'T need to downgrade anymore!
  • PhilZ Touch Recovery based on ClockWorkMod recovery, so every backup made from CWM can be restored with PhilZ-Touch and vice versa.

What you need:
  • Any stock firmware based on Android 4.3
    Go HERE if you need one.
  • Unknown sources enabled
    Go to Settings, tap on Security, select Unknown sources.

ROOT
  1. Download the last version of Towelroot from HERE (click on λ symbol to get it)
  2. Copy tr.apk into internal memory of your phone and install it with a File Manager
  3. Open Towelroot and tap on "make it ra1n"
  4. Now simply install SuperSU by Chainfire from Play Store
  5. Open SuperSU. It will ask to update the SU binary: tap on "Continue", then on "Normal"
  6. Reboot
  7. Done!
  8. You can uninstall Towelroot app, if you want or need

RECOVERY
  1. Download modified FlashgordonBB from HERE
  2. Download PhilZ Touch Recovery from HERE (remember to hit "Thanks" to @peetr_ for his great work)
  3. Copy both files into internal memory of your phone
  4. Install FlashGordonBB.apk with a File Manager
  5. Open Flash Gordon on your phone, tap on "Select zip..." and select PhilZ Touch Recovery ZIP file
  6. Tap on "Grant" when root permission is asked
  7. Tap on "Flash Now!"
  8. Turn off (do not reboot through Flash Gordon)
  9. Done! To enter into recovery, just power on and immediately push Vol-down button repeatedly
  10. You can uninstall Flash Gordon app, if you want or need

Any further suggestion is welcome!

Your Towelroot-Link is wrong; should be http://towelroot.com/
Sony Xperia V (LT25i)
Official 4.3 (9.2.A.2.5, stripped) @ SuperSU 2.00 & PhilZ XZDualRecovery
Giving CM11 @ BaNkS Standard GApps a fourth (and hopefully last) chance.

DONATE TO ME
Thumbs down AV no Likey

It works.
Kaspersky Says No Friggin way for this.
It's an exploit so I guess it's the reason why.
