Once in fastboot I booted into TWRP and restored a full backup from a few months ago and it worked.
I updated everything except SuperSU, used it for a few days to make sure it was the way I wanted it, then backed up through TWRP.
Please help me.... I assume I have installed updated to that infamous 2.80 few days ago...installed a binary and all that. Today, I rebooted my phone and got stuck in bootloop....only advice I found on thread was to flash 2.79 zip...so I went into recovery, cleared cache and dalvik and flashed it, but the phone is still bootlooping. I disabled xposed, assuming it might help(used a zip for disabling it which apparently makes a disabled file in xposed's folder...) but that didn't help either. I really need to fix this... Anyways, I am using Sony Xperia Z1 Compact with dual recovery(PhilZ Touch 6.59.0, ClockworkMod v220.127.116.11 an TWRP v.18.104.22.168), locked bootloader cause I can't unlock it on this one... I hope somebody can guide me through this and help soon....
Try osm0sis' unsu script. If that fixes your bootloop, you'll be unrooted. Then go back to what had worked. I'd suggest you turn off auto update in the play store for SuperSu.
Edit: You need to flash that file I linked to in recovery. I usually link to the thread
I would also suggest you search the stable and beta threads for your device.
