sry for my bad English. hope u guys can understand and make your device rooted
I try its on my xperia c4 E5333, and some people try its on their xperia c5 and its works too.
First upgrade your device to android 5.1, dont turn on usb debugging. if its on, turn it off
Second download kingroot from here ( .apk) http://www.kingroot.net and install kingroot. then run
So u your device get root now . So easy

after that, if you want to change kingroot to super su, u can folowing this:
download this file http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...5&d=1432683529 and extract to internal sdcard
install app "Terminal Emulator" from ch play. open it and type "su" for root permission, then type "sh /sdcard/mrw/root.sh", wait...
Reboot your phone, and finaly your phone get root with supersu.
So its a way to root Xperia C4/C5. Can anyone make recovery for C4/C5. Tks alots

I was able to root my E5506 (Wind Mobile) with or without USB debugging on. I tried both ways and it works using the latest Kingroot 4.8 app. It might reboot in the middle of rooting but just continue after the phone reboots. if it fails just try to root it again and it should work after a few tries.

I managed to install Titanium Backup Pro, Busy Box without any issues.

Note: If your Titanium Backup won't allow you to backup in your sd card, just download the app in the play store called SDfix. This app should fix your sd issues in TB.

If you flash a firmware using flashtool you will lose root so you'll have to re-root.

if your bootloader is unlocked you probably can install a custom recovery. my phone's bootloader is still locked just was able to get root access.
