Sony Xperia devices are very easy to root as you can root them by just an application. You have to install that app on your phone and BOOM! Your phone has been rooted. However, if you don’t know much about the root process and root access then let me make it clear for you. Phone rooting is a process in which we make system file available for some apps which needs them to do their job. After root access you will be able to run all those apps which you can’t run on your phone now. These apps can customize or tweaks our phone performance in many ways. So be cautious and follow this guide carefully and don’t get our phone messed up.

The King root app supposedly can gain root access and open up just about every Android smartphone out there from all different OEM companies. We are still trying to find out the boundaries ourselves. The boundaries are not outside of the Sony Xperia Z, however, because we know this definitely works. It’s called the King root tool because it is the king of all roots.

Kingroot One-Click root

With Android 5.0 Lollipop bringing added security, many people feared root access would only get harder. We know that over at the Cupertino company with Apple fan boys, they are not expecting to jailbreak iOS 9 at all. They are struggling to break the security for the final stages of iOS 8 still. Thanks to rooting tools such as King Root here, the Android platform is still going strong.

While the default apps available from Google Play give mind-boggling things to do with your Android phones such as Email clients, convert voice to text, there’s way more extra apps you can install after gaining root access. Furthermore, you skip choose to skip much of the custom ROMs and install Xposed framework instead. It was originally in the Xposed Alpha stages, but is now a full release with Xposed modules.

For this Kingroot One-Click rooting process, you need some tools:

  • A Windows-based PC, you can also use other PC.
  • A USB cable make sure it is not damaged.
  • Your phone with 70% battery and USB debugging enabled on it.
  • Enable USB debugging on your phone by going to settings > About phone > tap on the build number seven times, go back again to settings > developer options > check the USB debugging check box, this will enable USB debugging on your phone.

Backup all of your important data on your phone to any safe place so it will stay safe from any damage during this root process. Also backup all of your important media files like photos, videos and music to your PC or any other external drive so it will stay safe there.


  • Make sure that your phone should have at least 50% battery left on it before rooting process.
