Hey guys, here are the modified rootable kernels for the Xperia XZs [G8232 & G8231] 7.1.1 fw
Kernel G8232 FW 41.2.A.7.8
Kernel G8232 FW 235
Kernel G8231 FW 235
Thanks to tobias.waldvogel for his awesome resources.
Don't forget to flash the recovery. Here's the link
Recovery
Also, recovery can be accessed only through the official way i.e.
Power off >> Press the power key and the volume down key simultaneously >> As soon as the SONY logo appears, release ONLY the power key, don't release the volume down key >> After 20-30 seconds the device will enter recovery mode.
Please copy the flashable SuperSU zip file to the external sd card before entering recovery as the internal memory can't be accessed in recovery.

HI I get stuck on Sony logo when I flash the kernel. I'm guessing it would be due to me being on the US 219 build. Would that be the reason?

Yes, it can be.. It takes about 30 seconds to enter recovery once the Sony logo appears..
