Post [Root][4.4.2][LB/UB] Stock 10.5.A.0.230 Xperia ZR

Xperia ZR Pre-Rooted Stock 10.5.A.0.230


Hi everyone!

Today, the first 4.4 build of Sony for the Xperia ZR rolled out.
So, I've use DIY Guide by @[NUT] to build an pre-rooted version for you. (Me, I'll go back on custom ROM after testing that for you. ^^)
It's available for LB and UB.

Let's go!

Features :
  • Based on the firmware 10.5.A.0.230 (4.4.2) (Taiwan location for C5502, Nordic location for C5503)
  • Pre-Rooted
  • Built-in Dual Recovery @[NUT] 's"XZDR"


Needed files :

For both (C5502/03) :

For C5502 (3G) :
For C5503 (4G/LTE) :

Installation :

If you coming from on 4.3 :
  • Flash 4.2.2 FTF or 4.1.2 FTF
  • Root your firmware with VRoot/Kingo etc (for 4.2.2) or with Doomlord's one (for 4.1.2)
  • Install Recovery
  • Boot to Recovery
  • Wipe cache partition, wipe Dalvik cache and wipe Data/Factory reset
  • Flash Pre-Rooted Rom .zip file from Recovery
  • Flash "UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.94.zip" from Recovery
  • Flash "ZR-lockeddualrecovery2.7.124-BETA.flashable.zip" from Recovery
  • Switch off your phone
  • Flash Stripped FTF with flashtool
  • Reboot your phone
  • First boot will take longer than usual boot.
  • You're done!

If you have LB with 4.2/4.3 and Recovery or UB :
  • Go to Recovery
  • Wipe cache partition, wipe Dalvik cache and wipe Data/Factory reset
  • Flash Pre-Rooted Rom .zip file from Recovery
  • Flash "UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.94.zip" from Recovery
  • Flash "ZR-lockeddualrecovery2.7.124-BETA.flashable.zip" from Recovery
  • Switch off your phone
  • Flash Stripped FTF with flashtool
  • Reboot your phone
  • First boot will take longer than usual boot.
  • You're done!

If you have trouble with recovery, delete the folder "XZDualRecovery" and reboot to recovery with the app "NDR Utils".

Please... Backup your data before starting.
And don't try dirty install. Make clean install to avoid lot of bugs. So, make all wipes.
