How to Root Sony Xperia L (C2104 / C2105) on Jelly Bean 4.2.2 Build [15.3.A.1.17]

A new update to Xperia L , it is still 4.2.2 , just few bug fixes. The new build is 15.3.A.1.17 . And here is the root method :D



So here is the tutroial how to Root Xperia L running Jelly Bean 4.2.2 Build 15.3.A.1.17

Disclaimer : I am not responsible if you brick your phone or if u make any other damage to your phone


So Lets Start :

1. First make sure you are running Jelly Bean 4.2.2 Build 15.3.A.1.17. Go to Settings > About to verify this.


2. Download this File - Root Xperia L Tool and exctract it completely using WinRAR or WinZip.

3. Enable USB Debugging , Go to Settings > About phone and tap 7 times on Build number to enable Developer options, now Go to Settings > Developer options to enable Enable USB debugging mode.

4. Enable Unknown Sources. Go to Settings > Security and check Unknown sources.

5. Connect USB Cable to phone , then connect it to your Computer. On your phone Skip the PC Companion Companion prompt (if it appears),  see screenshot below. 




6. Right Click on My Computer > Manage , now goto Device Manager , and see if Android is listed like the below screenshot , to verify your device is properly connected. If yes move on to the next step.  



7. Now go to the Folder where you extracted the downloaded file from Step 2, and execute "install.bat" .

Note :- If your device is not properly connected or ADB drivers are not installed , you will be stuck on daemon started successfully . To install ADB drivers install Sony PC Companion and then connect your phone with USB Debugging Mode ON , ur drivers will get installed, exit PC Companion before starting the rooting process.


8. The Rooting Process will start , wait for some time , your phone will automatically reboot, wait for some more time :P

9. When the Rooting Process is completed ,  the Screen will show --all finished--. Press Any Key to Continue. 


THATS IT YOUR PHONE IS NOW ROOTED.


Note : This method works on both locked and unlocked bootloader devices!!!

Dear Waledac Oxana,
When rooting with this tutorial, the bootloader will be unlocked?
I will still have the DRM keys or I will loose them?

Aye-Aye Sir! This will be Awesome!

The method is like "Privilege Escalation" without
touching the boot-loader (eg. grub/lilo),
while the other method is like " Installing Gentoo Linux
where Windows was installed"?
I am trying to understand the mechanisms.
Thank you for previous Reply!

Thank you so much for sharing this! I'm a complete newbie when it comes to technology customization / development but the bloatware on my phone was really annoying. I never thought I'd be able to root my phone and remove it all by myself but your method is really quick and easy! My problem was solved in no time :) so thanks!

I tried this method, and it was awesome!
Many thanks Waledac! :D

Just one thing to add:
If you have an Antivirus like AVG, it will prompt you about getroot not be trustworthy. Just disable AVG while using the install.bat. ;)
