Now back to the topic, I have succeeded in getting the firmware manually. I followed this method :
1. Launch XperiFirm.
2. Go through the selection process for ZR and the latest Lollipop version.
3. In the popped up dialog window, select Manual and wait for links to be copied to clipboard.
4. Launch a download manager and get all the files.

I am getting the last file right now. I have done some more research and am now fairly confident of arriving at a solution soon.

Will update as things progress.

Thanks for your concern,
By the way i found the easy way to root,
the old method of KingRoot is working now,
U can root using KingRoot Tool from here and then use replace kingroot with supersu by this method
Thanks for the developers @ KingRoot

It's kinda weird to ask but anybody here know how to port Google Now homescreen widget from Google Now launcher to stock launcher. I love the way that the widget allows me to search for everything without get into google app.

Can Kingroot root the latest 5.1.1? I thought it did not work on Sony's Lollipop.

first download and install kingroot and then open the app(data connection required) it will automatically root the device,

After all the preparation going through downloading stock firmware, creating a pre-rooted version and flashing the .zip through recovery I ended up with a single line error. On rebooting the upgrade to Lollipop was successful but there was no root

So I had to follow your advice and get root through Kingroot. Then I followed your advice further to replace Kingroot with SuperSU. Thanks for the help, you earn the award "Lifesaver of the highest order" today.

=========================

As a followup question, I am seeing this trouble in integrating updates to Play Store and YouTube into /system using Link2SD. All other system updates can be successfully integrated.

In these 2 cases, Link2SD creates a folder called PhonSky.t and YouTube.t in /system/priv-app and /system/app and keeps stuffing .apk files of ALL the installed programs into that folder hence invariably running out of space soon. I find this uncharacteristic and have not found a solution to this yet.

Is there a fully manual method of integrating these updates into /system? In KitKat at least we could just copy the .apk into the correct directory and it would install during next boot.
