Default [Q] Need Help Rooting C6606 4.2.2 Tmobile

Hey there guys, I'm new to all of these software stuff. I'm trying to get my device simply rooted. I looked everywhere on the forum to see if anyone actually rooted my version of device. Some people say they did it but they didnt post how they got it or the instructions. So if anyone can help me, I would appreciate it. (Also, I don't care too much for roms or customization etc as long everything works perfectly fine. I just need the root in order to use the app called "SixAxis" a mapping for games.)

My device's bootloader is locked im guessing since it's by tmobile, but if there is a root out there, please give me links/exact instructions. I AM A NOOB BTW
Thanks

I currently own a Sony Xperia Z. It's model number is C6606
Android Version is 4.2.2
Kernel Version: 3.4.0-ge32669e
Build number: 10.3.1.E.0.191
By Tmobile

Root many Android
Use method 0. The tool should be self explanatory.

Ok nvm, i figured out what you meant by method 0. So i tried it, and the device rebooted and i checked it with the root checker app, and it didnt root. Nothing was installed or anything like that.

Then i attempted to do it again but this time "run it as administrator". Then the root kit said "the system cannot find the path specified"

Any ideas or other ways to root my device?

First, make sure drivers are all installed. USB debugging needs to be on.
Then make sure nothing else like the PC Companion is running before you use the toolkit.
This should work for you.
