I made a huge mistake.

I failed to root my phone using this:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2155864

I flashed the kernel from the 1st post (Advanced Stock Kernel) BUT forgot to download and save the SuperSU root ZIP file on my SD card before flashing the kernel.

When I reboot the phone, it keeps looping at the Sony logo.

I've only got 13% battery juice left, and I don't want to slip this up.

I can still access CWM/TWRP (the kernel is dual boot) and Fastboot.

I'm looking for a stock, rooted ZL image that I might be able to flash using Fastboot method. But I can't seem find one.

Someone please help. TY.



EDIT:

I was able to find a solution.

I downloaded the kernel from this:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2641695
and the flashable ROM from this:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2643900

I copied both ZIP files on my external SD card via a memory card reader, then flashed both files via CWM.

The phone successfully booted.

I hope this thread will provide a solution for others with the same problem.

Luckily, there was still 4% battery left. Whew. Time to charge it up!

You can mount your storage to the computer when you have a working custom recovery as you said and copy UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.93.zip to it using a usb cable.

Then you can flash it

You can always use Androxyde's Flashtool to go back to fully working Sony stock firmwares!

--> http://www.flashtool.net/index.php

From there you can proceed with rooting.
