You need to type this sequence sh /sdcard/mrw/root.sh if you cannot type it won't work is sh than space than / stop telling don't work because it works great and the super su open after the script did his job on terminal and open itself and tell the binary needs to update I don't know what you do because the binary after update them the phone reboot bro keep reading and then do it is very easy even a child make it is very easy

for some reason this didn't work the 1st time around, i had kingroot already installed from before, and it wouldn't update..
so i uninstalled SuperSU (which already removed Kingroot) and installed the Kingroot version in this Post (OP) and tried again...and it worked perfectly...
so for every one to be safe use the KingRoot APk in the attachment on the 1st post .
very good work...thanks m8...

i have a question though,,,can i update this to SuperSU pro???

Edit
Yes it can be updated to Pro.

it works like a charm bro
the first time i tried, it was not worked as it suppose to be. kinguser notified that the service was in error or something like that. and i tried to reboot. (prev. I got original kingroot straight from the dev, not from the op's), i got bootloop
but i got 2nd chance, (after getting bootloop, i reflashed with the stock rom, without deleting any cache or data), after my deviced booted, i downloaded everything from attachment. and did what the op said, exactly. and it workssss

Thanks

addition,
btw. i lost my root access, how do i gain the access? do i have to install the kingroot again and root the device? i am a bit kind of new in rooting. as prev, i never played rooting before. i was scared. was...

oppsssssss...
my bad, i forgot to delete something, so i thought the root didn't work previously. so i can say this method works 100%
now, I got root access.. thanks OP

    Thanks @kingvortex and @matt4321
    @edwuard Actually this takes hours to make it much easier for you and all users and I'm still working on it because it doesn't work for all devices.
    its really good to help people but if you give some credit it will be great, the page you get the tool didn't give me credit but he/she write the source you don't even write that page as a source of this thread.

    I'm sorry, I hope you understand me :) but without giving a credit mean all the hours that I/other spent for making this/other tool for free was wasting of time.

    The script was created by Mr. W0lf, so it's a little unfair of the OP to present it as their own work without credits to the creator. Original source. Also see the screenshot in this post. It clearly says "Made by Mr. W0lf" in the terminal output.

    I suggest everyone to download the script from the original place and to thank the actual creator of this useful script. XDA post of the original source.

    Come on, those sort of comments aren't helpful. If you look in the KingRoot thread, there are many people that use Xperia devices complaining that their phone reboots when mounting /system as rw. Just because it didn't happen to you, doesn't mean it's not a real problem.

    I'll suggest to you again that you should try to be helpful in your thread rather than dismissive in this way.

    Exactly, by the way, I managed to fix the reboot issue, it was RIC as Sir @kingvortex suggested in his earlier post and guide me to some RIC killers, but they didn't work, as they try to mount / (rw) or mount /system (rw) and that's where RIC reboots the phone.

    So here is the procedure what I did for all people who are having reboot issues in Xperia (in my case it was C6606/C6616).

    We need adb.exe to get a shell to execute commands, if you already have no issues, for others just download SonyRICDefeat(we use one of them for adb shell only)

    Enable developer tools [tap build number so many times], enable usb debugging, connect your phone with your PC, open cmd (command prompt, from accessories), goto SonyRICDefeat directory and change directory to files
    Code:
    cd files
    now run
    Code:
    adb shell
    it will give you shell
    type
    Code:
    su
    Kingroot will prompt to allow or deny the request, press allow
    now
    Code:
    cd /data/local/tmp
    ./busybox mount -o remount,rw /
    phone will not reboot, now we have to kill RIC, but it will restart again, so chmod the /sbin/ric to 0644 to prevent ric from starting again.
    Get the ric process PID
    Code:
    ps | grep /sbin/ric
    it will return PID of RIC process
    Code:
    kill -9 pid_of_ric_process
    OR
    Code:
    pkill -f /sbin/ric
    after that
    Code:
    chmod 644 /sbin/ric
    So far so good, now ric is stopped, may be trying to restart but due to chmod it will unable to start until reboot, now we can mount / or /system without any issue. BTW if we edit, init.sony.rc to comment out RIC service, it will come back on reboot.

    For sake of clarity, here is the rest of the procedure, you might shifted Mr.Wolf mrw folder from here or from 1st post of this thread already on your sdcard so from the same adb shell type
    Code:
    cd /
    sh /sdcard/mrw/root.sh
    it will clean kingroot files and install supersu, that's it

    Thanks to @kingvortex for his kind help, Mr.Wolf for his cleanup script and off-course @edwuard for this post
