Angry [ROOT][Z] How-to for rooting newest firmware 10.3.1.A.0.244/2.67

[ info ]


So guys I have got root on the newest firmware 10.3.1.A.0.244 / 10.3.1.A.2.67!


Since Sony has patched our beloved perf_event exploit (with which we rooted 30+ Xperia devices) I had to find an alternate way... so I did the smart thing, just used the kernel on which the exploit works, root the device and flash back the newest kernel!


THIS WORKS ON BOTH LOCKED & UNLOCKED BOOTLOADERS!



[ proof ]





[ NOTICE ]

THIS IS ONLY FOR THE XPERIA Z (C6602/3) FW 10.3.1.A.0.244 / 10.3.1.A.2.67!

DO NOT USE IT ON ANY OTHER VARIANT/FIRMWARE!



[ sources & additional info on exploit ]

check out this thread


[ how-to ]
  1. Download the three files from the download section below
  2. open FlashTool and flash the XperiaZ_C660X_KernelOnly_10.3.A.0.423_Generic_NL.f tf - 7.12 MB file, this is JUST the kernel of an older firmware which was rootable
  3. now once flashing is done reboot device and connect to PC in usb debuggin mode
  4. CLOSE FLASHTOOL <<< VVVIMP STEP
  5. extract the file DooMLoRD_Easy-Rooting-Toolkit_v18_perf-event-exploit.zip to root directory on c:\
  6. execute runme_ file corresponding to your OS on desktop PC, this will execute a SPECIAL version of my easy rooting toolkit <<< VVVIMP STEP
  7. the above step is crucial! if you use any older version of the toolkit then IT WILL NOT WORK!
  8. after rooting is over the device will restart
  9. you can verify if device is rooted by checking for SuperSU app (it is the newest version)
  10. once thats done now power down device and open FlashTool again
  11. now flash :
    XperiaZ_C660X_KernelOnly_10.3.1.A.2.67.ftf - 7.17 MB
    OR
    XperiaZ_C660X_KernelOnly_10.3.1.A.0.244_BE.ftf - 7.17 MB
    file to get back to the true kernel for the firmware you were currently on
  12. thats it after flashing is done just disconnect and power on device and enjoy rooted phone!

as of now, this is closest you can get for one-click for this firmware...

a simpler one-click method could take time...
