How To Root Sony Xperia C Without Computer

Sony Xperia C is one of the best Android smartphones in the market. It comes with 5 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen powered display, Cortex-A7 1.2 Ghz quad-core processor supported by 1 GB RAM and it runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system. The device also has a 8 mega pixel primary camera that can pictures and video in HD. All in all if you are looking for a smartphone in a smart budget, Sony Xperia C will be the best bet.

If you own this device and would like to root it for gaining root privileges (which will help you install Android apps which only supports rooted devices. Also you can install custom Android ROM’s when your device is rooted), then you check out our tutorial given below:

How To Root Sony Xperia C (C2305)

But, if you don’t have a computer and if you still want to root your device, then you are in the right place. Here, I have given an easy tutorial to root Sony Xperia C smartphones using Framaroot .apk file without the need of a PC.

CAUTION: Rooting your Sony device will void it’s warranty and you won’t be able to claim it, if your device encounters processor or display issues. So think well before following this procedure.

Root Sony Xperia C Without Computer

Prerequisites To Root Sony Xperia C:

1) The rooting process that I have given here is not a data-loss process. So, there is absolutely no need to take backup of personal data.

2) Since Framaroot app is not approved by Google, you have to download and install it separately (the download link is given below). For that, you have to enable “Allow Installation of Apps from Unknown Sources” by following this path: Settings -> Security -> Unknown Sources (mark it).

Once you have done these prerequisites, you can move on to the main rooting tutorial.

How To Root Sony Xperia C Without Computer:

1) To start the rooting process, you will need framaroot. You can get the apk file here. Download it to your smartphone and once the download gets completed, tap on the .apk file to get it installed.

2) Once installed, open up the “Framaroot” app and click on the first option which would be “Boromir“. The rooting process will begin.

3) Once the rooting gets completed, you will get a One Note pop up stating “Super SU Binary Installed.” Tap “Ok“.

4) Now to finish, restart your device.

That’s it. Now you have successfully rooted your Sony Xperia C smartphone without a computer. If you have any doubts regarding this tutorial, drop in a comment below.

  57. Hi sathish

    I rooted my phone as the process which u have given using framaroot to uninstall few inbuilt apps also to connect 1tb Seagate hdd.
    But however hdd not worked as I told u before, but I uninstalled f.b and hangout apps (inbuilt apps) after that I again unrooted my phone, but my phone is not getting unrooted. So I again tried rooting and unrooting using framaroot, but still after again rooting and unrooting there is no change , root checker is showing “sorry, root access is not properly installed in this device”(in both case’s). So as u told framaroot have no command over hard reset I formatted my phone twice through setting and also using hard buttons(power button+volume down keys and selected wipe option) but still I unable to fix my phone. Still root checker showing ” sorry root access is not properly installed in this device”. Can I root my phone using pc?
    please I request you to suggest me what to do and don’ts. How could I make my phone normal.
