I have problem with rooting Android, I tried various methods (including Kingo, EasyRootTool, and etc.) and none pf them worked.

My device is

Sony Z C6602
Android 4.4.4
Build Number 10.5.1.A.0.283

Any suggestions how to root it?


I had a experience to root a sony device once, that I was a little bit complicated, so I think it will be necessary to downgrade your device to Android 4.3, then try this method: http://www.teamandroid.com/2014/03/10/root-xperia-z-c6602-c6603-tutorial/

(I have a Xperia Z too, and I am rooted/unlocked. You have to downgrade to 4.3. But if you have not unlocked your bootloader yet, your data is gone either way.)

All my knowledge comes from xda-developers.com, so I looked it up there. There is a thread for it: How to root 10.5.1.A.0.283 / 10.5.1.A.0.292

Hope it helps you :)
