This is the guide for SO-01F users to root and update for 4.2 14.1.H.1.281
If you are C69xx user, please exclude partition and ta when you flash docomo FTF.

FTF for Japanese Xperia will be hosted in this website:
http://ftf.xn--l8je9byecb9a3syb.xn--q9jyb4c/

Instruction for 14.1.H.1.281

!! This will format internal storage !!

2. Boot and enable USB debugging and Unknown source
(Search how to enable if you don't know)

3. Run rootkitXperia

4. Run XZU & Z1 recovery v4 Windows

5. Copy cwm_prerooted_Z1.zip to Z1's storage

6. Reboot and enter into recovery by pressing volume up and install cwm_prerooted_Z1.zip

How to create prerooted zip by yourself

Requirements:
7-Zip Command Line Version
cwm_prerooted_Z1.zip (template zip)
FTF to update

1. Put 7za.exe, ftf and template zip in same folder

2. Open command window by Shift + Right click -> "Open Command Window Here"

3. Type and run one by one:
Code:
7za e (name).ftf system.sin
7za e (name).ftf kernel.sin
This will extract two sin files from FTF.

4. Open Flashtool, then select tools -> Sin editor

5. Browse and select system.sin, then click "Extract data"

6. Browse and select kernel.sin, then click "Extract data"

7. In command window type and run:
Code:
7za a -tzip cwm_prerooted_Z1.zip system.ext4
7za a -tzip cwm_prerooted_Z1.zip kernel.elf
8. Done, you can now copy cwm_prerooted_Z1.zip to internal storage and install it with recovery.
You have to flash rpm.sin with Flashtool after installation.
Enter into flashmode and flash ftf
Wipe: Don't check
Exclude: Check all but uncheck kernel

Thanks @cubeundcube for rootkitXperia and @hagurekamome for template!

SO-01F_14.1.H.2.119_NTT docomo.ftf
https://mega.co.nz/#!rkRTXZ4b!fcb2j3UuNt10qQ_jxW6_gQk0w7t9hNV7QlK0pNTOGcg

4.4 for SO-01F will be released after docomo starts selling Z2 (Maybe in May).


The operator DoCoMo has an update on 14.1.H.2.119, I have upgraded and lost root ...
Can you help me root it?

Replace OP's cwm_prerooted_Z1.zip with updated one:
https://mega.co.nz/#!y1IQVLxJ!fgV97jd8xCIPh5BMPy8mIgvJwc5UhmjRBvKNqib8e3o

1. - 4. is same as instruction for .681
If you already have rooted .681, you can skip 1. - 4. and go to 5.

5. Copy cwm_prerooted_Z1_119.zip to Z1's storage

6. Reboot and enter into recovery and install cwm_prerooted_Z1_119.zip

7. Power off after completed

8. Enter into flashmode and flash 14.1.H.2.119 ftf
Wipe: Check all (recommended, but you can uncheck all to save your data)
Exclude: Check all but uncheck kernel

9. Install XZDualRecovery

10. Done!

When I try to flash the Kernel on last step
"8. Enter into flashmode and flash 14.1.H.2.119 ftf
Wipe: Check all (recommended, but you can uncheck all to save your data)
Exclude: Check all but uncheck kernel"
I get an error and did not flash it. Mine is a C6903, all other steps go fine, the last one is the only one having problem.
Any help?
Thank you!
Edit:
Error:
03/047/2014 15:47:26 - INFO - Flashing data
03/047/2014 15:47:48 - ERROR - Processing of userdata.sin finished with errors.

Thank you!

docomo announced their presentation will be held on May 14 (in Japan).
https://www.nttdocomo.co.jp/product...x.html?cid=CRP_PRD_sns_tw_2014_summer_feature
They will announce Xperia Z2 (SO-03F), A2 (SO-04F) and Z2 Tablet (SO-05F).

docomo's Z got update to 4.2 nine days before Z1 (4.2) is launched.
Z1 should get 4.4 soon before/after SO-03F is released, but docomo is still developing 4.4.
They even writes "OS: Android 4.4 (Under investigation)" in their catalog...

Hello! Has anyone here tried any custom roms on their SO-01F? Just curious if anyone has tried or not. I was rooted previously and noticed there was an OTA so I reflashed the Docomo ftf .119 and upgraded my phone with the OTA. Then I re-rooted and installed ,multi recovery.

@RyokoN: you have updated and root android 4.4.2 version from the docomo network yet?

two members on getting it there.

Actually I sold my Z1 to get Z2, but here is the ftf for 4.4.2 update:

You can use Towelroot exploit to root .288.

How to disable sony_ric to mount system as RW:
1. Download ric_disable pack
https://mega.co.nz/#!mp5jyDKa!l13Rm8r3bspzmhwtWmChXZf0MlWJkfKsHI9Nh2p4l_Q
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4fBjQuS8IxPVmgyajFyRFlvdnM/edit?usp=sharing

2. If you have recovery installed in your system, install "sony_ric_disabler_signed.zip".

If you don't have recovery or "sony_ric_disabler_signed.zip" doesn't work for you,
run these commands in command prompt:
Code:
adb push writekmem /data/local/tmp
adb push findricaddr /data/local/tmp
adb shell
chmod 0755 writekmem
chmod 0755 findricaddr
su
/data/local/tmp/findricaddr | /data/local/tmp/busybox tail -n2 | /data/local/tmp/busybox head -n1 | /data/local/tmp/busybox cut -d= -f2 > /data/local/tmp/ricaddr
chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/ricaddr
/data/local/tmp/writekmem `/data/local/tmp/busybox cat /data/local/tmp/ricaddr` 0
3. Run this command to mount system as RW:
Code:
mount -o remount,rw /system
4. Done!
If "sony_ric_disabler_signed.zip" doesn't work, you have to run these commands at every boot (for example, by Tasker "Run Shell" at "Device Boot").
Code:
su
/data/local/tmp/findricaddr | /data/local/tmp/busybox tail -n2 |  /data/local/tmp/busybox head -n1 | /data/local/tmp/busybox cut -d= -f2  > /data/local/tmp/ricaddr
chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/ricaddr
/data/local/tmp/writekmem `/data/local/tmp/busybox cat /data/local/tmp/ricaddr` 0
