Rooting Sony Xperia Z1

Rooting Sony Xperia Z1

  1. To start Rooting Sony Xperia Z1, open the 360 Root software on your PC. You can get the 360 Root from here.
  2. If the software gives an error, try closing adb.exe and retrying as it conflicts with the process.
  3. Now turn on developer options on your smartphone by going into Setting and then selecting Developer Options.
  4. Attach your smartphone to your PC via USB cable.
  5. Open 360 Root and select the green root button at the bottom right of the interface. Ignore the red button for now.
  6. The software will start the process. Don’t worry if the progress bar resets a few times.
  7. After the process is completed a message will appear saying ‘Congratulations root was successful”.
  8. Now to get root permissions again click the green button once more.
  9. Now after the process the top left root button will change indicating you have done Rooting Sony Xperia Z1 completely.

A word of warning though; don’t touch the bootloader of your Sony Xperia Z1. Meddling with that will result in the camera not working and I assume you don’t want that to happen. Now you have successfully done Rooting Sony Xperia Z1. Have fun!
