What’s been happening with Android devices lately is they are losing access to the root files because of the Android 5.0 Lollipop update. Google’s been pushing this latest update to a number of devices lately, and anyone who updates his or her device with this version of the OS loses the root-access.

If that has happened with your Sony Xperia T2 Ultra, you do not have to worry as a new root method has become available for your device. It lets you re-gain the root-access on your device that you lost after updating your phone.

Here’s how you can go about rooting (or re-rooting!) your Sony Xperia T2 Ultra:

Files You Need

1. This should work even on the latest Android 5.0.2.

3. Download KingRoot app to your computer. It is the app that will help you root your Xperia T2 Ultra smartphone.

Rooting the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra

3. When KingRoot is copied, disconnect your phone from your computer.

4. Head to Menu->Settings->Security on your device and turn on Unknown sources.

5. Launch File Manager and tap on KingRoot to install the app on your device.

6. Once installed, open the app from your app drawer.

7. Tap on Root in the app and wait for it to root your device.

8. Once rooted, reboot your phone.

9. You’re done!


Your Sony Xperia T2 Ultra is now rooted and you can have it confirmed using Root Checker on your device.

If having no-root access prevented you from accessing root-requiring apps, it’s time that you go and grab those apps as your device is now rooted and there’s nothing that can prevent you from getting those apps installed on your device. Enjoy!
