Go to page one on the link, and it has the instructions.

Hey guys, it does work! With some tweaking. Its maybe like a 4 click method. I used the z1c method. Uninstall the APK from your phone and follow the directions on this thread.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=53459243

Take the APK file that is not installed and move it over to your pc. The file you extract will have a folder called files, put the TR.APK file there. Make sure towelroot is not installed on your phone before you do this.

Now all you have to do is run the install.bat file and follow directions. Do not press your keyboard till your phone screen is black and you seen the sony logo.

It does work, and I'm so happy!
