Question [Q] What is a good Root and Deodexed method for XMD 15.5.A.1.5

I am sorry if I am repeating a post or even breaking any rules. I'm new here, I tried to use the search options but perhaps I wasn't getting the Keywords right as I used "XMD Root" and "Root" but I didn't get a method that would be noob-friendly and for the latest firmware.

1. Can you guys tell me what method (Perhaps link me?) should I use to fully root my XMD C2005 firmware: 15.5.A.1.5 without unlocking the bootloader.

2. What is the best method for Deodexing my phone? I saw a tutorial by Paper13579 Click Here. Is this the best method for C2005?

3. Will rooting my phone void my warranty? Cause I've seen on many websites that for Sony phones, rooting does not void warranty but unlocking the bootloader does while some other websites said just rooting voids warranty.

1. Follow this root method, it is incredibly easy: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2789990

2. Follow my guide, but in step 16 Download this instead of the other files: http://d-h.st/2oO

3. No, rooting your phone won't void your warranty. Unlocking the bootloader will though.
Press Thanks If I Helped

Thanks a lot (Also pressed Thanks). Could you tell me what are the files I should need in case I face a problem like bricking? I believe I need to flash the tft file again or something. (Still noob as you might see) Is there any links you could further provide me? This way I could download everything and get started as soon as possible.

If you ever face a brick, you will need to download flashtool from there and you can also download any stock ftf file you wish. There are plenty in the general section. And here is a guide to recover from a soft brick, a hard brick is impossible to fix.
