It was suck when I upgrade on 14.1.B.2.257 then everything you do for Root were not work, vroot, oneclick root, etc.
I using Sony Updates software for upgrade it, previous purpose only to making backup Stock ROM, then my root access was gone.

I combine many posting to gain back root access, actually my FW was Indonesia CDA, it may be broke warranty, but I try replace 2.257 with 1.510, that still rootable, with same interface (like white theme on setting). I just wanna share what I simple done.

1. Flash your device with previous FW( Me, use Indonesia 1.510), for you please select as you wish. Download it first.

Just wanted to hare my steps:
1. Connect your phone (don't forget to enable USB Debugging)
2. Open the Vroot tool, wait until it detects the phone.
3. Click on the green button on the right bottom corner of the tool (root).
4. After sucesssfully root using the VRoot (your phone will reboot), install the SuperSU from playstore.
5. Open the SuperSU app, it will ask to update binary, click ok.
6. Then open the Vroot tool once again, click the white button (unroot) on the left of the green button, hence removing the chinese superuser app.
7. After that go to SuperSU -> Settings -> Install SuperU into /system.
8. After that reboot the phone, and the SuperSU will still be there, all apps requiring root works perfectly.

Note: if you cannot find the developer options in the settings to enable USB debugging (just like I did the first time ), go to About Phone and click on the Build Number menu 7 times. That will enable the developer mode.

Not sure why we need another guide.. Especially instruction #5 which is something you implement prior to ota updating (and not at the end of the process of flashing files). Not being mean, just thing this will add to the confusion (for those already confused).

Swap vRoot out with the Japanese rootkit. People should not use vRoot.

Finishing on point 4 was "sort of" my point (the word 'must' is detailed in point 5, and I know I'm getting picky with semantics)

Good advice my friend Xmas Darth Manhattan

Sry.. I shouldn't be so negative with fellow users offering guides.. :thumbup: OP

Edit: just noticed the edit of OP :thumbup:
