I created TWRP and custom kernel for Z5 Premium E6853.
I won't update this kernel since I don't have Z5P.

NOTE: This kernel is not for people who don't read official instruction at Sony Developer World!
This note is ridiculous, but some people don't read long instruction even if it has risk.

Download:
https://dl.androplus.org/Xperia Z5 Premium_E6853/

NOTE: You should search how to setup adb and fastboot.
You can find how to for unlocking bootloader on Sony Developer World.

1. Download Z5P_AndroPlusKernel_v4a.zip and twrp-2.8.7.0-E6853-20151122_material.img
You also need SuperSU from this thread
2. Enter into fastboot mode and run these commands in same folder you downloaded 1.
Code:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash recovery twrp-2.8.7.0-E6853-20151122_material.img
fastboot reboot
3. Press volume key when LED is on
4. Install SuperSU zip
5. Reboot and rooting is done

If TWRP didn't work, you can alternatively do this:
Code:
adb shell
rootsh +p
./SuperSU_files/install_SuperSU.sh
reboot

Hi androplus

You do awesome work I have used your kernel on the z3 before. So happy to see you helping us out. Is there any changes or things you have added to this kernel or is it just rooted?

Thanks

Amazing been waiting to root for so long

This is cool thanks a massive bunch :)

I will be rooting and flashing the recovery after work.

One question, will I still get Xperia updates for the sony rom after I have rooted and will my phone be wiped after u locking bootloader and flashing recovery ?
