Same model, build and doesn't work here.
Yeah, exact same here.
Here's some additional and maybe useful information which i've found in the past few days:
While on android 5.0 it was possible to use a rootkit which gave you root access even with locked bootloader, on android 6.0 and above it is not possible.

First you need to check if your phone allows the bootloader to be unlocked.
You can do this via service menu:
Dial -> *#*#7378423#*#* -> Service info -> Configuration -> Rooting status
If you see "Bootloader unlock allowed: NO" then your bootloader is locked by your carrier and you can do nothing about it.
If you see "Bootloader unlock allowed: YES" then you can easily unlock your bootloader with adb and fastboot, and then give your phone root access (there's a lot of information how to do it)

Bootloader unlocking (sony specific): https://developer.sonymobile.com/unlockbootloader/unlock-yourboot-loader/
Rooting: https://forum.xda-developers.com/m4-aqua/general/root-t3421932

rooting xperia m4 aqua

Hello,
Since I had some troubles rooting my Xperia M4 Aqua the other day, I made a video tutorial on how to root it, because it was kinda hard for a newbie like me to root it with the help of other posts on the forums. The tutorial is a step by step tutorial, and I hope it will help newbies like me to root their phone.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yHAcze1T4sQ

And for those who would rather root their phone via the textual step by step tutorial, here it is:

1. Go to settings on your phone >about phone>build version and tap the ''build version'' couple of times till you don't get a message saying you're now a developer.

2. Go to developer options>USB debugging and check that.

3. Download these files on your computer desktop:
adb-setup: http://www.mediafire.com/download/kby09bi319h4gvi/adb-setup-1.3.exe
Xperia rootkit: http://www.mediafire.com/download/awrsi78ddjl0x2r/rootkitXperia_E23xx_26.1.X.3.xxx.zip

4. When you have downloaded those files, open adb-setup and install it. Type ''Y'' on every row.

5. Unzip the rootkit folder, and just copy the whole folder (not what's inside the folder, you must copy the whole folder) and paste it to local disk C in the ''adb'' folder.

6. Now plug your Xperia M4 Aqua in the USB which is connected to your PC, and click ''OK'' when a window pops out on your phone for USB debugging.

7. Now, open the ''adb'' folder, and then the rootkit folder and click on the file ''install.bat''

8. Wait for the installing process to be done, your phone will restart once, and when it turns on, just click enter on the cmd windows, and that's it.

Your Xperia M4 Aqua is now rooted. Enjoy.

Hello
I follow the steps and when i click on the file ''install.bat'' this message appears: the device is not supported
what to do next?

thank you

thank you!
The only way to root a marshmallow m4 with an unlockable bootloader is to downgrade the firmware to lollipop and get root with auto root or king root ect.
There are no other ways ,its not ideal i know, you would probably be better off leaving it as it is and moving on to another phone that can be unlocked, good luck.
