I made this ftf from my XE (Single Sim C1505) - 11.3.A.2.23
Country: Vietnam

================

How to root:
1. Flash kernel 11.3.A.0.47
2. Root your XE using Framaroot. (Gandalf exploit)
3. Flash kernel 11.3.A.2.23

Done! Your XE (SS) - 11.3.A.2.23 is rooted! :good:

Note: after flashing 0.47 kernel, your wifi and mobile data will not work, but dont worry, they will work normally after flashing 2.23 kernel.

====================
Some screens about this firmware, a little bit of improving performance and decreasing lag.

-You wont lose your warranty.

-Unless you unlock bootloader, you always keep getting official Sony updates.

-Sorry, I dont have C1504 so I dont know it will work or not.

-You dont need to unlock bootloader. This method works without unlocking bootloader.

Wait... Your C1505 is a single sim version, whereas here in India the C1505 is the dual sim version.. Hmmm
Any thoughts? :rolleyes::what:

Hello guys, I am from HTC Explorer community. We are currently developing an ION kernel and everything except Camera is working. For Camera, we need a JB compatible liboemcamera.so library file. While searching I found that Xperia E also uses a 3.15MP camera sensor and comes with JB. So, their is a high probably that its liboemcamera.so may support our 3.15MP camera sensor too. Can someone please upload just the liboemcamera.so file present in your ROM ? Thanks :)

Ummm... Look, here's what happened : I installed the update officially from PCC.
But now Framaroot doesn't work.
What do I do?
Do I flash .47 , root, and then flash .23 ??
:confused::confused::confused:

How did you manage to flash the old kernel after the update was installed? I'm trying it on mine and it keeps failing. Which tools did you use?
