rootkitXperia is back again!

A Japanese developer, @cubeundcube made it possible to root some Android 5.0 Lollipop firmware directly (not 5.1 and 64bit devices, sadly...).
With new rootkitXperia, you don't need to roll back to KitKat when you lose root on locked bootloader!

Download
Download (only for M4 Aqua Dual E2363 *)
Download (for M4 Aqua E2303 **)

Supported device/version
Z2/Z3 variant
23.2.A.1.62
23.1.A.1.28
17.1.1.B.3.240 or .245 *Japanese model
23.0.B.1.38 *Japanese model
23.0.B.1.59 *Japanese model
23.0.C.0.350 *Japanese model
23.0.H.0.334 *Japanese model

Z1 variant
14.5.A.0.270
14.3.B.0.310 *Japanese model

Z variant
10.6.A.0.454

M4 Aqua Dual E2363 *
26.1.B.1.85

M4 Aqua E2303 **
26.1.A.1.128

* You can see some 5.1 firmwares in "support.txt", but "封鎖" means "blocked/patched", so they are not supported.

How to use rootkitXperia
1. Install adb driver for your device
2. Go to Settings > Developer options and tick USB debugging
3. Go to Settings > Security and tick Unknown sources
4. Connect your phone to your computer
5. Extract rootkitXperia_20150926.zip and run install.bat
6. When you see "— all finished —" in console, rooting is done.

NOTE: rootkitXperia won't install recovery or kill ric,
so you have to install XZDualRecovery.

Here's the thing pulled through Google Translate:
Quote:

■ domestic version
Z1 system: 14.3.B.0.310 previous
Z2 system: 17.1.1.B.3.240 (245) previous
Z3 system: 23.0.B.1.38 previous

■ Z2 & Z3 system (Overseas Version)
23.4.A.0.546 blockade
23.2.A.1.62 OK
23.1.A.1.28 OK

■ Z1 system (Overseas Version)
14.6.A.0.368 blockade
14.5.A.0.283 blockade
14.5.A.0.270 OK

■ Z system (Overseas Version)
10.7.A.0.222 blockade
10.6.A.0.454 OK

Domestic version means the Japanese versions. Probably.

I added Japanese models to the list.
You can see some 5.1 firmwares in "support.txt", but "封鎖" means "blocked/patched", so they are not supported.

[UPDATE]
Added C4, M4 Aqua and C5 Ultra

You have to set up by yourself.
It's really easy and you don't need to do again.

Yes all Z3+/Z4 firmwares are already patched before release.
Sony is so fast to patch exploits...
