Default [Q] Rooting Xperia Z (C6602) 10.4.1.B.0.101 ?

Hello Guys,

I just received my sony Z from Sony Service center and they updated my phone to the original 10.4.B.0.569 and ofcourse I lost root,CWM and all else.

I connected my phone to the Sony Companion and it updated to stock 10.4.1.B.0.101, now how do I root it and install the cwm aswell?

help will be much appreciated.

First, there is no requirement for creating another thread for this question.

Second, there is no direct root as of now for 4.3. You need to flash pre-rooted system to keep your root.

apologies for creating another thread, and thanks for the reply.

so in other words downgrade to a .67 for example and root then upgrade either to stock new update or install a custom rom with the update right? and it will keep root and recovery?

Downgrade, yea. But need to flash the pre-rooted system partition, which will preserve recovery and root.

@ ahassouna, How did you manage to downgrade? I tried to flash .67 from the flashtool and then my phone just keeps restarting. I did wipe the apps log, cache & data. Still no luck. Could you let me know any other way how you could achieve this?

I had a bootloop too when downgraded from 4.3 to 4.2 that i solved by doing a wipe data when flashing the 4.2 rom. I think you have to do a fresh install when you downgrade in order to avoid bootloops
