First of all, never quote the OP. Now the answer to your question: Unfortunately, not! The Z3 / Z3C phone series were the last flagship phones for which it was possible to have TWRP recovery installed still keeping their bootloaders locked. From the Z3+ onwards, with the implementation of dm-verity, root access can only be achieved after unlocking it. Nevertheless, as your phone' services menu states that you are not allowed to unlock it, I'm afraid you won't be allowed to root your phone.
i bought this phone via online shop and it is actually SOV31 from Japan, KDDI AU..shown on the label inside the SIM slot.
but i can use my country's SIM Card and has no problem with 2G-3G-4G..
Flashed with Original Japanese ROM, shown SOV31
Flashed with many Global ROMs, shown E6553
The status of the Network is 0, everything is 0 except Network Subset = 5
is there anything i can do to install TWRP or Phil ?
Thank you very much
i have seen several posts on this forum which have the same phone as mine, E6553 and also E6533..
Some people have Unlock Allowed = YES, while others NO.
It means Z3 / Z3C are not the last ones which can be unlocked.
We don't know the method and why some Yes some No..
I'm desesperately looking for a recovery on my sgp512 running stock android 6.0.1 (23.5.A.1.291) to be able to install custom rom (AICP 13.1) on my Z2 tablet wifi version.
I'm trying to import my kernel.sin or boot.img here: http://nut.xperia-files.com/path/XZDualRecovery but no way something is not working.
Maybe someone can help me?...
Thanks for your help
