3. Open the KingRoot app from your mobile , Click on "Start Root" , the Rooting Process will start. ( You need to be connected to internet via WiFi or Mobile data )








4. You will see a message saying "Successfully obtain root" when the process is finished.






THATS IT YOUR PHONE XPERIA Z1 IS NOW ROOTED.

To Replace KingUser with SuperUser follow the steps :

1. Download the file - Replace_Kinguser_with_SuperSU LINK

2. Extract the file and copy the mrw folder to the root of your internal storage.



3. Download Terminal Emulator for Android from PlayStore - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jackpal.androidterm&hl=en

4. Open the Terminal app in your mobile , enter the command " su " ( without quotes ) . Allow Root Access in your mobile.



5. Now run the command - " sh /sdcard/mrw/root.sh " ( without quotes )



6. The SuperSu app will launch automatically (if u see any errors just ignore) , it will ask to update binary , click on CONTINUE , then Select NORMAL method. After the Binary is installed it will ask to reboot your device.






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