Hi, since somebody requested my newroot tool. here is it, enjoy! Tool will root your phone and install cwm recovery, busybox, su, superuser, allso you can unroot at least

Pre-requirements:
- You must have installed usb drivers! Just simple install Sony PC Companion, if your windows device manager detect unknown device than probably you must point drivers installation to search for propertly driver C:\Program Files\Sony\Sony PC Companion\Drivers directory. When your windows device manager detect your phone propertly than you are ready for rooting/unrooting

How to install (Windows users):
1: Download and extract newroot.rar
2: Enable USB Debugging
-You can do this by going into Settings>About Phone and tapping the Build Number multiple times to activate Developer Options
-Then Settings>Developer Options and check USB Debugging
3: Plug in your phone your PC
4: Run the root software [Pay close attention to your phone]
5: A pop-up will come up on your phone. Allow it
6: Let it do its thing
7: It will reboot and you're rooted
8: Enjoy

How to install (Linux users):
0. First of all you need adb for Linux, I not gona explain where you can download adb for Linux since you need to search XDA and found them byself, everybody know about adb and I not going to explain adb basic things, you need to help byself on that since adb you will need in future for sure
1: Download newroot and put to the same folder with adb binary
2: Enable USB Debugging
-You can do this by going into Settings>About Phone and tapping the Build Number multiple times to activate Developer Options
-Then Settings>Developer Options and check USB Debugging
3: Plug in your phone your PC
4: Run the root software [Pay close attention to your phone] a pop-up will come up on your phone. Allow it! Commands for runing root software is:
Code:
adb push newroot /data/local/tmp/
adb shell chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/newroot
adb shell /data/local/tmp/newroot doit
Allso there is a option for unrooting:
Code:
adb shell /data/local/tmp/newroot unroot
6: Let it do its thing
7: It will reboot and you're rooted
8: Enjoy

Newroot work with all kitkat firmwares but doesn't work with latest kitkat *after 108) .133, .157... firmware or with old JB firmwares!!!
If your running later kernels from out of 108 and newer firmware that you can achieve root following these steps:
1. download the .108 firmware or kernel only
2. flash only the .108 kernel using flashtool
3. Use newroot
4. Reflash back your newer kernel using flashtool

Thanks to the OP for this, looks like a great solution.

Is there any particular firmware you have to be running for this to work? Or do you need to downgrade?

Cheers

Sorry if I'm rude but I think we need some info like what firmware version works with this root or any prerequisite should we have before rooting like bootloader being unlocked etc. Also a simple tutorial would be nice for newbies to avoid confusion. Ill test this out on the latest firmware [.108] on an unlocked bootloader and I will report if this is working.
