i have done these steps
1.)usb debugging should be ON
2.)unknown sources must be selected
3)phone should be connected to PC

i don't know the step 4) which says to install the adb drivers, there is inside the unzip folder some files with the name adb is one of them that i have to install in the phone? if yes which one is it and how do i install it? should i copy the file inside the phone and install it from the phone or i click it from the pc while is connected with my phone and it would be installed?

@mitulvohra Are you reverting back to old FW because of facing any issues related to rooting?

@endem

What's the version of your FW, is it 15.3.A.1.14 ?

  • Mobile: Sony Xperia - L

  • Model: C2104
  • Android: JellyBean 4.2.2
  • Build#: 15.3.A.1.14
  • Rooting Status: Rooted
  • Boot-Loader: Locked, Bootloader unlock allowed (*#*#7378423#*#*)

Thanks @mitulvohra

The method worked perfectly. The end result is:
  • No unexpected reboot problem experienced so far
  • SuperSU has been installed
  • It worked on Sony Xperial - L (India), Model C2104, Firmware Revision 15.3.A.1.14, Jelly Bean 4.2.2 Android, Stock ROM, Locked Bootloader
  • The process does not touch the Bootloader at all. Rooting status as obtained by *#*#7378423#*#* is still showing Bootloader unlock allowed, which is good, IMHO
  • Root Checker by joekrim announces a success.

Let me post the full output log of the process so that other user can do it with confidence.


  • Mobile: Sony Xperia - L
  • ROM: Stock ROM
  • Model: C2104
  • Android: JellyBean 4.2.2
  • Build#: 15.3.A.1.14
  • Rooting Status: Rooted
  • Boot-Loader: Locked, Bootloader unlock allowed (*#*#7378423#*#*)

Seems that the exploit installs BusyBox. But I'm not being able to find the binary. How can I update BusyBox? Should I use something like BusyBox Installer?
