Root Xperia ZL with Latest .244fw

I Take no credit for this I have done zero development work
All credits to the great @DooMLoRD
This is a just a Guide telling how to implement his method


Requirement


NOTE: We need complete file only to flash the Kernel.sin & Loader.sin

OR

Use the files provided by me which contain the required files only (easier method)

These kernel files are from C6502 if you have another device they might not work. In that case use the complete FTF files for your device and root using complete ftf method

  1. Latest .244 file https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B8hAoiy5gSGVcDI4di1YTnNYSkU/edit?pli=1
  2. Older fw.423 file https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B8hAoiy5gSGVbmtOY2lyMUc0OXM/edit?pli=1


How (Using complete ftf packages)


  • Flash only the kernel.sin & loader.sin from older .423ftf package using FlashTool
  • Uncheck all wipe options
  • Check all exclude option EXCEPT Exclude Kernel
  • Now flash this using flashtool
  • Reboot the device and make sure USB Debugging & Unknown Sources are allowed in settings
  • Now root using the latest DoomLord Kit v18 (No other version of kit will work)
  • Turn Off the Device and put in Flash Mode (Press Volume Down while attaching usb cable)
  • Now open the latest .244ftf package and repeat the check and uncheck process as earlier
  • Flash only the Kernel.sin & Loader.sin
  • Reboot the Device
  • Done !!

OR

How (Using given ftf files) EASIER WAY



These kernel files are from C6502 if you have another device they might not work. In that case use the complete FTF files for your device and root using complete ftf method

  • Flash the .423 kernel ftf package using FlashTool
  • Reboot the device and make sure USB Debugging & Unknown Sources are allowed in settings
  • Now root using the latest DoomLord Kit v18 (No other version of kit will work)
  • Turn Off the Device and put in Flash Mode (Press Volume Down while attaching usb cable)
  • Now open the latest .244kernel ftf package and flash it
  • Reboot the Device
  • Done !!

Do all this at your own risk
Thankyou @DooMLoRD for your great work

Newbie here, I want to root my c6506 on .244, the link to the flashtool is dead. Will this guide work on my phone and where can I get the flashtool?
Thanks.

OK, I think I found the flashtool on Sony's web site, when I connect to Emma it says my bootloader is locked. I have to unlock the bootloader in order to just root?
