A better approach if you can

You won't get much joy staying on Lollipop, and Kingoroot is not my favorite approach to rooting. See if you can un-do all of that and use the Xperia Companion app to update the phone to Marshmallow. Once you have that, you can unlock the bootloader, flash TWRP in as the recovery if you want to try the LOS Pie build for it, or root it with something more credible, such as SU or Magisk. Yeah, very time consuming, but you will be much happier in the long run for the effort. Still a great little phone if you put some decent software on it. You could also go through the tedium of disabling all the apps in the stock ROM that get in your way, and the Z3C comes with a warehouse full of them, and using a different launcher - Evie is very nice for this purpose - to at least give you something you don't mind looking at. If only the stock ROM supported adopted storage, but you can't have everything .......

Good Luck

Had that, too .....

When I ran the companion app on a Win 7 machine it told me the same thing. :rolleyes: When I ran the companion app on a Win 10 machine, it updated Android (which took an ETERNITY to download but who cares once it is done). SONY has apparently tweaked the app to not do much on anything less than Win 10. :confused:

Let me know if that helps.

If you wanted to flash the latest version of stock ROM, get http://www.flashtool.net/index.php .
Included is Xperifirm, which will allow you to choose, download, and package to FTF the latest official ROM. From there, you can use the FTF to flash your phone.

Before you do this, you may want to read up on the various rooting methods and decide which method is best for you. I say this because I started off with Android 4.4 first, installed dual recovery, and then flashed to a pre-rooted Android 5.1 (tried 6.0 and didn't like it) through recovery.

Some older, official ROMs shared by users (probably some dead links):
