Instructions

  1. Once you are done with the above pre-requisites, you should start out rooting guide by downloading Xperia Z Ultra firmware (file name is Stock_C6892_14.1.B.1.510_M3dDog.zip – a pre-rooted ROM) on your laptop and then getting a custom recovery image on your handset; you can choose between these two options: TWRP or CWM Recovery. Either of them is great.
  2. Then, after you’ve flashed one of these custom recovery image options, you should plug the phone to your notebook with the help of the USB cord that belongs to your handset. Then wait until the phone is recognized by your laptop and, after it is, you have to move the file we told you to download to this new location: the SD card root of your handset.
  3. Once the end of the transfer is near and the file has been moved to where it is now, you should do as follows next up: disconnect the smartphone from your laptop by taking out that USB cable that kept them connected to each other.
  4. Now you should perform the following action: turn the Xperia Z Ultra C6802 off. Then continue by looking for “Power”; after you see it, you need to press it.
  5. Then have patience for a short while till you spot the logo of the phone’s manufacturer on your device’s touchscreen. Then press Volume Up and your device is going to enter Recovery Mode in the next couple of minutes.
  6. Once your smartphone is booted in that mode, you can wipe the phone’s data as described next: stay in the recovery mode, choose “Factory reset/Wipe data“, go back to the phone’s Recovery Menu, opt for “Wipe cache partition“, confirm this by choosing “Yes”, return to the Recovery Menu once more, opt for “Wipe Dalvik cache“, confirm the action by selecting the same “Yes” as before and that’s that.
  7. Next actions on the list: go back to the same Recovery Menu, opt for “Install zip from SD card” and then opt for “Choose zip from SD card“, after which you should choose the Stock_C6892_14.1.B.1.510_M3dDog.zip file.
  8. Make sure you flash the latter on your smartphone by tapping the option called “Yes”. Wait until the installation is over, then do this: return to the Recovery Menu.
  9. From there, you should search for the Restart option and, when you’ve stumbled across it, be sure to opt for it. After the phone restarts, it will be rooted. And the firmware it had before will still be there. Once you hold a rooted Sony Xperia Z Ultra C6802, you should look for root-only apps and other tools to install on it. That way, you will experience an enhanced device. So try it out!
