Tested only in Xperia M4 Aqua E2303, you need UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER,steps:

1. download this recovery (thanks to @dani020110 and your corresponding boot (rename it to boot.img):

FOR E2303.
FOR E2333
FOR E2306
FOR E2353
FOR E2312

2. copy them inside the adb folder and boot into fastboot mode, type in the shell:
Code:
fastboot devices
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot reboot
3. let the phone booting ,shut down and boot again in fastboot mode then:
Code:
fastboot devices
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot reboot

Now you have ROOT WITH LATEST SUPER SU 2.76 and custom Recovery.ENJOY
at you own risk .

But is it possible (for locked bootloader) to update using a pre-rooted zip with the old recovery? Or flashtool is needed to update something at bootloader level?

    Hey everybody:
    Could you all reboot to recovery and go to advanced, terminal, and then type dmesg?

    If in the first lines you see [email protected], it means that it is MY recovery

    And if you don't believe me, just see this post and obviously the date:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=67203931&postcount=71
    And see the md5sum of the recovery of this post lol it matches
    Sir @PiSpecialist it's really unfair that you have stolen my one week work and you have posted here without a single mention, and that you have gotten all the thanks...
    I'm glad to see that my recovery works, but at least you had to mention my name ;)

    Hello.

    I got adb and fastboot drivers. So this is what I do.
    Unlocked bootloader.
    Connect the phone on the PC while it's turned on. Write in the shell the commands, nothing happens. Turn off the phone and connect to the PC while im holding the Volume - button (the green Led is on) so then I type fastboot devices in the power shell , nothing come up. Then I type the second command fastboot flash recovery recovery img. and after a few seconds the phone is booting up. I turn it off, do the same procedure connect to pc while holding volume - and then do the second part with the boot.img... Did this several times, does not work.

    Can you help me please, what I can do... What am I doing wrong?
