Unfortunately the latest version of kingroot(v5.2.0.20170711) is not compatible with my device: xperia Z2 D6543 android 6.0.1 FW .291 - Any other suggestion? Maybe I can downgrade it to an earlier version and try again?

I would not use Kingroot!

Use this instead:

Please look in Z2 forums here on XDA as well next time.

Hey fluffi, thanks for pointing out to that thread. I have actually read it before but it was not clear to me of I had to backup TA before doing that, so I gave up using that method.
But it seems then that is actually the best way to get TA recovery and root on a stock D6543 on .291.

I'm gonna give that a try and let you know how it went.

Exactly, subscribing here to see future updates from you.
BTW, did you by any chance figured out how to make it work for you?

Hey sorry for the late reply but yes I made it work but only because I wanted to install a custom rom anyways.

Check this steps. I obtained root with fully working good battery lasting custom rom:

what helped me get there:

1. install stock 5.1.1. with sony companion
2. install KingRoot and let it obtain root
3. download NUT Recovery from homepage and run the install.bat on a windows machine, select the first option (Install it on a xperia device with SuperSU)
4. grand ADB root priveliges in KingRoot (since SuperSU is not installed and I wasn't able to exchange KingRoot for SuperSU)
5. as soon as Nut Recovery is installed I was able to go into TWRP and install the ROM according to instructions in first post

Bootloader still locked =)

You can find further information in the rom's respective thread:


Hope this helps
As for your question: I never tried stock 5.1.1. With root but I suggest it will have worse battery then the linked custom rom

    This is Easy Root Tool for various Xperia devices (first developed for Z1 Compact). It's almost one-click root. The tool should work on Windows, Linux and Mac. Bootloader is untouched! No data is being wiped.

    Note: Does not work on latest firmwares of most devices. Check your device forum for a work around (you should be able to flash kernel of old firmware to root and then flash back latest kernel).

    What you get
    • Root
    • Access to /system rw

    • USB debugging enabled
      Settings => About phone => Click 7 times on Android Build to unlock developer options
    • Unknown sources enabled
      Settings => Security
    • adb drivers installed

    How to use
    1. Download the attachment (latest version) and extract it
    2. Start your device and plug it to your computer
    3. Run install.bat and follow the instructions on screen
    4. Congratulations! You should now be rooted.

    I have an error/question!
    But i'ts impossible to update Super SU binary :/

    Did you use the SuperSU from market? Because it's a known issue this SuperSU can not update binary. Use latest one from here: http://download.chainfire.eu/447/SuperSU/UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.99r4.zip

    it seem it was not rooted !!!!

    What do you mean? Did you check with Root check app? What is the output of install.bat?
    Thanks for this.
    But not working :/

    After rebooting my device, i try another to root and it's work.


    But i'ts impossible to update Super SU binary :/
