If you have already updated your smartphone to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, then you have to downgrade your device to KitKat OS and Root it.
  • Use this guide to Install .108 firmware.
  • Root using this guide.
  • Now Install XZ Dual Recovery.

  • Download latest installer for Xperia Z1 from here. (Z1-lockeddualrecovery2.8.10-RELEASE.installer.zip)
  • Connect phone to PC using OEM date cable and run install.bat.
  • It will install the custom recovery.
  • Now work here is done. Lets move on to next step.

2. Root and Install Recovery on Z1 C6902/C6903 5.0.2 Lollipop Firmware

  • Custom recovery was installed in the first step.
  • The pre-rooted firmware was created and copied to phone in next step.

  • Click on it and click on flashmode.
  • Select the .242 firmware.
  • In the right bar, in the exclude options, exclude System only. It means that untick System only there. Leave every other options as it is (See the Picture).
