Hi guys,

anyone got similar issues? I am traying to flash 23.0.A.2.93 so I can make root and install recovery.
I have installed drivers (flashmode, fastboot, Z3). After initiating flashing I got this:

Any suggestions? OS is Windows 8.1 64bit

Guy's just follow the steps in this thread, download the pre rooted lollipop from the link (download the top one .264 and flash it) and you're done

Thank you so much!

By the way, can I install software updates? I think so, but I wanna be sure of it.

Your phone will see them and you can download them but you won't be able to install them.

You will need to wait until someone posts a pre rooted version.

Or you can do a complete clean install via flash tool but you will lose root of course.

@rajverma3135
I think the most important statement you made is that you wiped system. I would personally not recommend this, as last time I did it I had to reflash the ROM twice. Therefore you should try flashing it another time, with wipe of app data and cache selected in flashtool. Good luck!

    How to root Xperia Z3 with Locked Bootloader


    • Move all your important data from Internal storage to a computer and remove SDcard (make this in case you loose something)
    • You need to have firmware version 23.0.A.2.93 (for D6603/D6653) or 23.0.F.1.74 (for D6633) installed on your phone. If not, please download ftf file and flash it with Flashtool (newer firmware versions will fail root:
    • Start the phone, don't make any initial setup. Skip it and go directly to Settings > About Phone. Tap 7 times on Buld number and a Developer options will be activated.
    • Go to Settings > Developer options and tick USB debugging an Allow mock locations.
    • Go to Settings > Security and tick Unknown sources, untick Verify apps.
    • Enter your phone in Flight mode
    • Download giefroot rooting tool v3.1 and extract the files on your PC (Windows only). [original thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/crossdevice-dev/sony/giefroot-rooting-tool-cve-2014-4322-t3011598]
    • Connect your phone to the computer.
    • Start install.bat
    • If until that moment you have never connected you phone to this PC via adb you will get a popup message on you phone to authorize this computer. Do it.

    • The procedure will start. After a while your phone should restart by itself.
    • After the phone boots up wait until a popup from SuperSu appears asking for adb shell root rights. Do it.

    • When you give the permission you have to see on the computer the sign "Device rooted".
    • If it says Device not rooted repeat all the steps running install.bat again.

    So I just rooted my 4.4.4 xperia z3 with this method and I installed gravity box, now I know I can retain gravity box by flashing a zip file but will I retain root access if I officially update using Xperia System Update? Does Sony ship LP yet or should I just go with CM?

    I would go here....http://forum.xda-developers.com/z3/development/stock-firmware-23-0-1-5-77-generic-t3012376 flash that zip and maintain root and also make sure you flash a custom recovery to keep root also and flash the above zip, and recovery can be found in the op.
    Also specific to your question, once you update you will lose root.

    Here are the steps I would do (you have done some already..)
    1. root
    2. flash custom recovery....
    3. update to .77 using the above link and flash using the custom recovery
    4. If you want to ever go back to stock us flashtool to flash the ftf file...http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=920746
    5. Find the ftf file here...http://forum.xda-developers.com/crossdevice-dev/sony/pc-xperifirm-xperia-firmware-downloader-t2834142
    6. make your own pre -rooted ftf file from here using ...http://forum.xda-developers.com/crossdevice-dev/sony/tool-prfcreator-easily-create-pre-t2859904

    Of course the order can change...but that is what essentially has to be done, and some of it has already been done such as the zips already made, but if you know how to do it yourself that is always better.

    It is actually pretty easy to do, the threads once put all together in a sequence make sense to me...hope this helps and does not confuse you!!

    Good luck>>>

    How to root my xperia z3 sol26(japan version) looked BL . help please

    Sent from my SOL26 using XDA Free mobile app
    just like D6653's root method

    2/ root with giefroot method (search in forum)
    3/ install recovery (search in forum)
    4/ prepare prerooted version from stock ftf file (such as: 23.0.C.0.350_KDDI-JP) by using PRFCreator.
    5/ boot into recovery and flash prepared prerooted version in step 4
    6/ flash RICDefeat.zip for different kernel for D6653 (search in forum). this step can be done along with step 4 (after finishing step 5, do not reboot system but flash file in step 6)
    7/ if necessary: using flashtool to flash stock ftf file (such as: 23.0.C.0.350_KDDI-JP) (note: remember to exclude partition, system)

    Hello guys,

    I've finally made an account on xda. I need help, so if someone could provide it, it would mean the world to me.

    I read a lot of the posts in this thread because i want to root my z3. I understand most of it, but i struggle on some things, so i don't really dare to root my z3. It's updated with the laters marshmallow sofware. I understand i have to downgrade it, but how do i do that and what exactly do i do after that? And is the risk high with rooting my z3? Any help would be appreciated gents!

    Alan
