Create Pre-Rooted Firmware For Sony Xperia Devices

Android power users find pre-rooted firmwares very useful as they allow them to update their devices to new firmware without losing their root access or unlocking their bootloader.

If you are a Sony Xperia users, there are a lot of tools and glitches out there that will allow you to root your device running on a specific firmware without needing to unlock your bootloader.  But these tools are no longer working with newer firmware’s.

Currently, there is no direct method by which you can root a device from Sony’s Xperia Z line up but you can root these devices on older firmware and then flash a pre-rooted zip file of Android Lollipop in recovery.  You can also choose to keep your bootloader lock or unlock it if you want.

While there are a lot of existing pre-rooted firmwares to be found from developers in various forums, in case you can’t find the one you need, it’s releatively simple to create one on your own using a tool called PRF Creator.  To use PRF Creator, you just need a FTF file of the firmware you want, SuperSu Beta  zip file and the zip file of the recovery you want – we recommend Nut’s Dual Recovery.zip

In this post, we’re going to show you how you can use PRF Creator to create pre-rooted firmware for Sony Xperia devices.
