You can update from 26.1.A.1.112 to 26.1.A.2.167 by using twrp_prerooted_M4.zip.
  1. At First, flash 26.1.A.1.112 FW by using Flashtool.
  2. Get root by using rootkitXperia_E23xx.
  3. Install TWRP.
  4. Install twrp_prerooted_M4.zip include kernel.elf/system.ext4 of 26.1.A.2.167 on TWRP.

The TWRP will cause some conflict when the 6.0 (ftf) update come? Or it won't cause any trouble in future?
Thanks for this awesome work!
