Pre-Rooted Stock Firmware

Goodevening everybody,

Many of us love root but want to stay stock (like me) well. By following this guide: link ©quetzalcoatl2435. I was able to pre-root Stock Central Europe 1.
This thread is made with only one purpose: To share it!

If you want me to make one of your own choosing (branded, unbranded, generic etc) give me a call + download link for your ftf file and I'm good to go. Or follow the guide I linked to!

Details of all the pre-rooted ROMS I've made:
  1. Fully stock
  2. No bloatware removed or added (you can do this yourself now)
  3. Still Odex
  4. No CWM after flashing but you should be able to install it again

  1. Download the .zip file (see downloads)
  2. Put the pre rooted firmware + SU zip into your internal SD
  3. Flash both files and turn the phone off
  4. Open flashtool into flashmode
  5. Flash 266 kernel
  6. Reboot device
  7. Done

If you want to have a custom Recovery you could try to flash the following zip:
- Download: Dev Host


Stock FirmWare CE 1 Pre-Rooted
- Download: Google Drive

Stock FirmWare Global Pre-Rooted
- Download: Google Drive

Stock Firmware Generic IN Pre Rooted (C5302)
- Download: Google Drive


If you due to any reason want to go back to fully Stock without root and the lose of data:
Flash Stock ROM via Flashtool but uncheck DATA at WIPE this will keep your installed applications etc

Many thanks to quetzalcoatl2435 for his amazing guide
dssmex for the recovery zip
Chainfire for the SU
Sony for the firmware
Google for Android
Me for rooting and sharing (bit selfish not to put my own name here )

No it is running fine here. You did flash the kernel after flashing the rom itself?

Well it is weird actually since I have it fully booting etc.
You can try a few things:
- Redownload and reflash
- Reflash
- update to 266 downgrade and try again

Finaly i flashed rom. Everything was allright until I try use titanum backup.IT says theres no root access. I checked supersu (the same about no root) and root checker. I Think root dissapeared after flash 266 kernel only. I have no idea, IT is to much for me.

Do I have to wipe anything prior to installing?

---------- Post added at 08:38 AM ---------- Previous post was at 08:22 AM ----------

I have done everything according to the OP.
I don't have root after all. Titanium Backup says that and I have no SuperSU either.


Any idea?
