It's possible to root the latest build of d2005 with unlocked boot loader. Now I'm typing from my d2005 running Android 4.4.##. And it's rooted. Try kingroot apk.

I keep getting this:

Is there anyway to fix this?
I have Busybox installed.
Hi, for anyone getting the busybox not installed error....

I just installed this on a friend's phone and also got the error, so I opened up the install.bat, the line that does the work and contains the problem is this one:
adb shell su -c "cd /data/local/tmp/strapinstaller && chmod 755 system/bootstrap/bin/busybox && chmod 755 install_hijack.sh && ./install_hijack.sh"

By that stage the installer data is already on the phone, so the only problem is that the 2x chmod commands didn't work, and the install_hijack.sh hasn't yet run.

To get past this, connect to adb shell and type su, this should give you a '#' prompt indicating you have superuser access. Then type those commands manually, I did one line at a time, so :
cd /data/local/tmp/strapinstaller
chmod 755 system/bootstrap/bin/busybox
chmod 755 install_hijack.sh
./install_hijack.sh

And all worked fine, recovery installed.

Hi,

I'm on linux, and have adb setup already and so typing "adb shell" I get a command window (shell) to my phone. Once in that shell you can type commands one after another as you have a persistent connection until you exit the shell or unplug the phone.

If you have adb installed on your system, it should be possible for you to go ahead with the instructions in my previous post. However, the way to start adb is likely a little different depending on your operating system. If you don't have adb it's one of the tools provided with the android SDK, it may also be possible to install only a few tools to avoid a bit download/installation, I'm not sure... you could try searching around for how to install just adb on your system.

hope this helps

Tips to install this recovery without pc ..

-Extract bootstrap alpha 0.1.zip though root explorer for example
-Rename /system/bin/e2fsck to e2fsck_hijacked
-Move "e2fsck" from /bootstrap alpha 0.1/files/system/bin to /system/bin (set e2fsck permission to 0755 "rw xr xr x")
-Move "bootstrap" folder from /bootstrap alpha 0.1/files/system to /system, no need to set the permission of "bootstrap" folder
-At last reboot your device, when you see blue led bring up, press your volume down button, and you'll go onto phillz recovery

thanks for answering, but id like to understand this better and for that i have some questions:

1- I did a backup using this custon recovery but its not a update.zip or ftf, how can i use the backup folder to reinstall rom?
and yes i already tried to restore using custom recovery, but obviusly nothin.

2- If I flash a (the only) customized russian rom xperia e1 d2005, how will i be able to have my stock rom back?

3- how do i remove this philz recovery? is the custom recovery that is causing the bootloop?
and is there any twrp custom recovery for xperia e1? cuz i havent found xperia at compatible device list.. or a cwm in case twrp aint possible?

4- how do i flash the update from pc companion? its just a bunch of "FILE_9286434" there isnt a .sin file on the folder

5- if bootloader is unlocked pc companion wont work anymore?

6- if there a safestrap for xperia? why not?

i've been searching im trying to be certain before doing something like flash but i just got more confused.

1. The backup created after install this recovery right ? That's why "nothing"

2. Any customized is stock rom buddy

3. Simple, just remove e2fsk from /system/bin then rename e2fsck_hijacked to e2fsck, when you're on recovery, you can do that with aroma file manager (googling it), no for now and yes twrp for e1 isn't impossible

4. You need to created the ftf file though flashtool with that file (google it, how to do that)

5. I can say yes for high end sony device, but i don't know for low end device

6. I not understand about it #lol

    This Custom Recovery doesn't need a unlocked bootloader, but you must have:
    - a rooted Xperia E1
    - a computer
    - a brain

    How to Install:
    1. Extract the downloaded zip
    2. Enable ADB at Settings> Developer Options> USB debugging.
    3. Connect your phone to PC using USB
    4. Run install.bat

    Download: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6ZCRhr7_DQxUGZpbzlrb3V5SlU/view?usp=sharing

    I have found this Recovery here: http://galaxyypocketfans.blogspot.de/2014/11/xperiae1all-variants-bootstrap-for.html

    How about locked loader at E1 dual with root? I can install this without problem?

    It should run on the xperia e1 dual. just try it at send feedback.

    You can flash an official kernel from Sony even if the bootloader is locked/can't be unlocked.
    With Flashtool, selecting flashmode.
