It's a pre-rootet flashable zip file made with PRF Creator.
Source is my self-made clean stock Generic DE FTF file (captured with PC Companion method)

have a working custom recovery)

I got it.
root is available, what is reallly nice
60fps Video is available

Now i have a annoying sound when the phone boots, further booting time is very long.
No closing all button.

I hope i'll get Xposed working so i can fix these issues and turn off the LED signals

Edit: the boot sound can be disabled

Is it possible to make pre-rooted FTF file so we don't have to downgrade to KK and upgrade again to LP??

Is there's a way to root LP already?

Thanks All ;)

You can't make an FTF file due to Sony's encryption. Best way for pre-rooted xperia firmware is thru Flashable PRF.
Soon enough there will be a 1 click easy root tool for lollipop for xperia phones so stick with stock unrooted for the meantime
(seriously it's been just a few days since the fw was released)

There are ways but only with unlocking the bootloader (no one click or whatsoever) so in the end the one above seems to be the easiest way... and it´s not that much time consuming to downgrade to .108 and upgrade afterwards...

this could be a annoying question, but is this working WITHOUT unlocking my bootloader ? I don't want my data partition wiped

Thank you for your reply, I don't think I can wait until a root method comes out, there are many features in KK that I miss, and a couple of annoying ones in LP ;) I guess I'll just go with the downgrading method...

    Yes, here is it:
    Code:
    E/leds-amami(  719): Unable to read from '/sys/class/leds/wled:backlight/max_current'

    Code:
    [email protected]:/ $ cat /sys/class/leds/wled:backlight/max_current              
    20

    Any ideas?

    Same Here. I don't have root, but you could try to change the value to something lower (NOT higher!) and see what happens.

    Mine is rooted, but:

    Code:
    [email protected]:/ $ su
    [email protected]:/ # echo "19" >/sys/class/leds/wled:backlight/max_current
    [email protected]:/ # echo "15" >/sys/class/leds/wled:backlight/max_current

    Value changed, but it does not help.

    This seems to be question of File-Permissions. Don't know why, but "leds-anami" seems to have no permission to access this file.
    And if the Error is saying read it means write. Maybe it would be to easy/obvious to just say can't write :silly:


    So error disapears if I adjust Permission:
    Code:
    su
    chmod 666 /sys/class/leds/wled:backlight/max_current

    It seems like process only needs to acces file once, because after that you can change permission back to normal:
    Code:
    su
    chmod 664 /sys/class/leds/wled:backlight/max_current

    EDIT:
    Because this has to be done every boot, I created a little Script which will do this atomatically at Boot-Time.
    You need to have init.d Support enabled in XZDR.prop:
    Code:
    dr.initd.active=true
    dr.keep.byeselinux=true
    Or use this flashable to activate it automatically:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=3275993&d=1429700484

    The Script looks like that:
    Code:
    #!/system/bin/sh
    
    Timer=10
    
    # Waiting for boot to be finished
    
    echo "Waiting for Boot..."
    STATE=$(getprop sys.boot_completed)
    while [[ -z $STATE || $STATE -eq 0 ]]; do
    	sleep 5
    	STATE=$(getprop sys.boot_completed)
    done
    
    # Boot should now be finished
    # Change Permission temporarily
    
    echo "Boot finished...Change Permisssion"
    chmod 666 /sys/class/leds/wled:backlight/max_current
    
    # Wait some time to let "leds-anami" access file.
    echo "Wait $Timer Seconds"
    sleep $Timer
    
    # Revert Permission
    echo "Revert Permission to normal..."
    chmod 664 /sys/class/leds/wled:backlight/max_current
    
    echo "done"

    The ZIP at attachment is also flashable.

    Hi , wen downgrading to 108 , does it have to be rooted or no need at all please ??

    You do not need root. Simply flash .108, root and flash back 157. It is really very easy and takes only several minutes.
