[Root] [CWM] Xperia J
Root and CWM for Xperia J Finally!
Thanks to srl3gx
for their awsome work!
and ME for taking risk! :P
Make sure u are in 11.0.A.3.28 or 11.0.A.3.18 firmware ALONE with Locked Bootloader..
This method Dosent Work on 11.0.A.7.5 Firmware!
(working on it! )
for .28 firmware download from here
and flash it
if u dont have a flash tool download it from here
for windows and install drivers located in C:\Flashtool\drivers (choose all drivers)
since flash tool does not have xperia j drivers..u may hav flashing problem...for that
1.download and extract d ST26.zip ive uploaded
2.open flash tool
4.navigate to d file u've extracted
5.now xperia j driver is installed
u can now flash without problems
Now back to rooting...
Root first! thn apply CWM!
Steps for Rooting:
2.make sure 'usb debugging' is enabled in devolpment settings
3.double click Runme.bat file for windows users...runme.sh for linux users
4.wait for process to finish (mostly should work)
Steps for CWM:
2.'usb debugging' on
3.double click 'install.bat' only for windows (linux not working! my bad..)
4.wait for it.....installed! close the shell program and switch off the phone..
Plug in charger or USB....the phone switches on....press up and down volume keys repeatedly when SONY logo flashes.....voila u get into CWM!
You need plugged in charger or USB to goto CWM! Else CWM wont Work!!
reboot to system and see if supersu is installed
finish! ur phone is rooted and cwm is installed !!
CWM has little bugs ..but its a never mind stuff..
use arrow keys to navigate..power button to select and 'go back' option in cwm itself to go to previous options.
Comment if it worked for you...let others know!
Tested on my xperia J and Miro
Dont restore factory setting or else CWM will vanish...n u hav to reflash whole firmware again
for questions and problems ask srl3gx
HOPE I HELPED...hit thanks :P
Sorry for the last update! It Dindn't Work for many devices!
