Hello everyone,
I really want to have my x compact rooted? Can you guys show me how?

Best,
iknn

You can only root X Compact if you UNLOCK your bootloader. Be sure, to BACKUP your DRM keys before unlocking! You will need to use dirtycow backup tool found in Sony Cross-devices forum. After you are unlocked, you need to flash recovery (TWRP) and either SuperSU or phh's superuser.

Everything you need is here on forums. Once again, BACKUP your DRM keys, because unlocking bootloader deletes them irreversibly.
