The long wait of Sony Xperia J users has been over now. Like other users, they too can root their phone now and can enjoy hundreds of features over their phone. Sony has released only a few android phones which can be rooted with locked bootloader and the Sony Xperia J phone is one of them.
Rooting an android phone is one of the most important task you need to perform after buying it from the shop. Without rooting you will get bored with your device after a couple of months. But if you root your Sony Xperia J, you can change the skin of your phone, you can install the apps which needed the root permission to access and can install many custom ROMs.
Actually you can root the Sony Xperia J by two methods. One is by flashing the SU.zip from recovery and another one is with Bin4ry root tool. First method is little complicated. So I have decided to explain about how to root the Sony Xperia J by using Bin4ry tool. Just by following the 5-6 steps you can finish the rooting process. Well, let’s start.
Before beginning the procedure, I want to remind that the rooting process will void the warranty of your smartphone. But don’t panic because, you can get them back by unrooting the same.
2.Also don’t forget to note down your APN settings and MMS settings as this is important while you start to use next time.
4.Then charge your Sony Xperia J fully or atleast 70%, so that it won’t get switched off during the middle of the rooting process. Read our tutorial to know how to check the battery percentage level of your android smartphone.
5.And also you are advised to disable the security programs like Firewall and antivirus from the device as well as from the computer, as this may interrupt the rooting process.
6.Make sure your Sony Xperia J smartphone is locked, as this procedure will work only on the locked device.
7.Finally check whether your phone is running on firmware version 11.0.A.3.18 or 11.0.A.3.28. This rooting procedure does not work on firmware version 11.0.A.7.5.
