Sony Xperia Z Rooted Before Release!
Just because a device hasnâ™t been released, is in limited release, or isnâ™t in the hand of a developer doesnâ™t mean that developers cannot root the device. XDA Elite Recognized Developer Chainfire has rooted a pre-release device a few times, such as when he remotely rooted the Samsung Galaxy S III. Today, we are talking about Chainfireâ™s CF-Auto-Root in a roundabout way.
XDA Recognized Developer DooMLoRD took the Nexus 4 version of CF-Auto-Root, modified it a bit, did a dance to the rooting gods, and crossed his fingers. Using TeamViewer,Â which weâ™ve reviewed in the past, to remotely attempt rooting, he was successful. Thanks to Chainfireâ™s app and DooMLoRDâ™s dancing, the Sony Xperia Z now has root.
It is important to note that you need to have firmware version 10.1.A.1.350, an unlocked bootloader, and fastboot files for this to work. Check out the original thread to find out more.
