Using this method, you don't have to flash .230 kernels or use towel root.
For Unlocked bootloader only.
for unlocking any xperia device bootloader, check this link.

Requirements
  1. Sony Mobile Flasher by Androxyde
  2. C650x Superuser Mod
  3. Advanced stock kernel for KK 10.5.1.A.0.283
  4. Install all necessary drivers for xperia zl like flashtool drivers and adb drivers.
Steps
  • Open "Sony mobile Flasher by Androxyde".
  • Connect the device to the system using fastboot mode. For this, turn off the device and connect it to the system using USB cable while pressing the volume up button.
  • Now in "Sony Mobile Flasher", click the flash button on the top left corner and select fastboot mode.
  • Now click "Select kernal to flash" button.
  • Next, browse for the "Advance_stock_kernel_for_KK_10.5.A.0.283" image file. For getting the image file, you need to extract the zip file you have downloaded.
  • And now click OK. The flashing will be finished in seconds.
  • Now you have a custom recovery for the Xperia ZL.
  • Next, copy the "C6506_10.5.1.A.0.283_Superuser_Mod.zip" into your Xperia ZL and reboot the device to recovery.
  • In recovery, Select the "Install" option and find the "C6506_10.5.1.A.0.283_Superuser_Mod.zip" file and flash it.
  • Now reboot your device, And you are rooted!

Yes, as long as you keep one important thing in mind: this method is for unlocked BL only. Downgrading a kernel works for both locked and unlocked BL.

The above method works perfectly for all the xperia ZL models(C6502,C6503,C6506) with an unlocked bootloader. I personally tried it, so don't worry at all.

It's very simple to get the boot.img file from the .zip file. Just right click the file named "Advanced_stock kernel_for_KK_10.5.1.A.0.283.zip", and select the following option "7 - zip -> Extract here". Now you can find your .img file in the extracted location.

For rebooting your xperia device to recovery, First turn off the device, and then turn it on while repeatedly pressing the Volume up button until the recovery mode appears. I'm not sure about what kind of permissions you are talking about. Feel free to ask any doubts.
