How to ROOT Xperia Z Firmware 10.3.1.A.2.67!

Since Sony has patched our beloved perf_event exploit (with which we rooted 30+ Xperia devices) I had to find an alternate way... so I did the smart thing, just used the kernel on which the exploit works, root the device and flash back the newest kernel!


THIS WORKS ON BOTH LOCKED & UNLOCKED BOOTLOADERS!

THIS IS ONLY FOR THE XPERIA Z (C6602/3) FW 10.3.1.A.2.67!

DO NOT USE IT ON ANY OTHER VARIANT/FIRMWARE!


  1. Download the three files from below
  2. open FlashTool and flash the XperiaZ_C660X_KernelOnly_10.3.A.0.423_Generic_NL.f tf - 7.12 MB file, this is JUST the kernel of an older firmware which was rootable
  3. now once flashing is done reboot device and connect to PC in usb debuggin mode
  4. CLOSE FLASHTOOL <<< VVVIMP STEP
  5. extract the file DooMLoRD_Easy-Rooting-Toolkit_v18_perf-event-exploit.zip to root directory on c:\
  6. execute runme_ file corresponding to your OS on desktop PC, this will execute a SPECIAL version of my easy rooting toolkit <<< VVVIMP STEP
  7. the above step is crucial! if you use any older version of the toolkit then IT WILL NOT WORK!
  8. after rooting is over the device will restart
  9. you can verify if device is rooted by checking for SuperSU app (it is the newest version)
  10. once thats done now power down device and open FlashTool again
  11. now flash :
    XperiaZ_C660X_KernelOnly_10.3.1.A.2.67.ftf - 7.17 MB
    file to get back to the true kernel for the firmware you were currently on
  12. thats it after flashing is done just disconnect and power on device and enjoy rooted phone!
 

Sony Xperia Z C6603

Sony XPERIA Z is Sony Mobile flagship for this year. This phone has large fullHD display, very powerfull quadcore CPU, 2 GB RAM or 13 megapixel camera. Phone is also water resistance. Below you can find the latest firmware for the phone and also three tutorials/manuals - how to unlock the bootloader, how to relock the bootloader and how to backup the original firmware customization.

First of all one important thing - before you start to do anything with your phone, do the backup of your personal data. It is only for your safety in case that something goes wrong or any mistake happens. In that case you can use the backup to restore the data and try to do everything once again. Each tutorial has been done many times to verify its propriety, so just read carefully all instructions and continue step by step. For each of Sony (Ericsson) XPERIA smartphones we will provide a manual consisting of 4, 5 or 6 „HOW TO“ chapters. Our tutorials will be of course updated every time when Sony Mobile publishes anything new, affecting any of our topics. All important files have been stored on Google Drive, so there should be no problem with downloading. The major part of every file has been created by myself and every file has been tested on the corresponding phone. In this guideline related to the Sony XPERIA Z you can find some photos and videos showing how to proceed, but the most important thing are the below written manuals. All referenced files are determined for Sony XPERIA Z C6603. So, what can you expect in terms of mentioned manuals / tutorials?

ByPass Android Activation

If you have multiple Android phones, you might now always want keep each device active. But that doesn't mean it's a paperweight. But resetting a phone brings you back to the pesky activation screen in many cases. Luckily you are able to bypass this so that you can access all the features within the phone, without having to actually activate it on your account. The diagram shows exactly how its done, but here's a simple breakdown.
  1. Tap top left hand corner
  2. Tap top right hand corner
  3. Tap bottom right hand corner (above grey banner)
  4. Tap bottom left hand corner (above grey banner)

Following these simple steps will allow you to skip the activation, and jump right back into using your device. The only downside to this is that usually upon rebooting the phone, you will have to do the same pattern, but that's only a small price to pay in comparison to the option of actually activating the device.
