In case you are thinking in rooting your Sony Xperia device, then you should know that those of xda-developers just released a new one click root method that might be compatible with your Android based device. In that matter, senior member Munjeni developed an easy to apply root operation for Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z1 Compact.
This new one-click-root solution comes in order to address the recent complains – as you might know, the recent root operation worked only for the Xperia Z1 that was featured the Chinese Android firmware. Thus, by using the new root exploit you will be able to safely root your Sony Xperia Z1 or Xperia Z1 Compact that runs on any built of Android OS. Furthermore, by using this method you will be able to gain root access within a minute or less.
All you have to do for achieving the same will be to download the root tool (use this link) and to install the program on your computer – a computer or notebook is required. Then, just connect your smartphone with your PC, run the executable root file and wait while your Z1 / Z1 Compact is being automatically rooted.
Remember that gaining root access represents an unofficial operation, which means that your Sony warranty will get void once you start the proper process. Furthermore, I strongly recommending you to backup your data before running the one-click-root operation or else you might end up in losing everything that’s important to you.
So, there you have it; thanks to those of xda-developers you can now easily and quickly root your Sony Xperia Z or Sony Xperia Z1. The best is that after rooting you can choose to install a custom recovery image on your phone (like TWRP or CWM recovery) and eventually to update with a custom ROM firmware such as CM11 M8 (learn how to install CM 11 M8 Android 4.4.4 KitKat on any Android device), AOKP or ParanoidAndroid.
