How To Root Xperia Z3 Dual 23.1.1.E.0.1



Sony recently started pushing out the much awaited Android 5.0.2 Lollipop on the Xperia Z3 Dual. We have created an update guide that lets you update the phone but if you want something more than updating the phone like rooting it, you’re at the right place.

Check out how to root your Xperia Z3 Dual 23.1.1.E.0.1 below.

Prerequisites

  • Make sure your battery is charged to at least 70 percent.
  • The ADB drivers must be set up. Here’s how to.
  • Turn on the USB debugging by going to Settings > About Phone > Tapping the ‘Build number’ at least 7-8 times and going back into settings and then going to Developer Options.
  • Backup your apps and important messages.
  • Download and install flashtool from here.
  • (optional) If you are running firmwares newer than the ones released in October, you’re going to need to downgrade. If not, then root the firmware using this and install the recovery from here. Do keep in mind that you’ll need the installer version.
  • (optional) In case you need to downgrade, you can do so by downloading the FTF file of an older firmware and flashing it. Download here.
  • Download the pre-prooted Android 5.0.2 Lollipop from here.

How To Downgrade Xperia Z3 Dual

Note: This method is only for those who are on newer firmware. If you’re on the older one, skip this step.

  1. Once the files are downloaded, copy them to flashtool/firmwares folder.
  2. Fire up the flashtool and wait for it to load.
  3. Once the flashtool is up and running, click on the small lightning bolt on the top left and choose Flashmode.
  4. Select the firmware file you placed in the firmwares folder.
  5. Make sure all boxes are unticked apart from Wipe Data/Cache/App logs.
  6. Once you are done making the selection, click the ok button and wait while the update gets prepared.
  7. Turn off your phone and wait for the message that asks you to attach your phone.
  8. Press and hold the volume down key and attach the USB cable to your phone.
  9. As soon as the firmware starts flashing, leave the volume down key and wait for the phone to flash the firmware. Do not disconnect the phone at any cost.
  10. Reboot your phone when it’s done.
  11. Open the root kit you downloaded earlier and connect your phone with it. Make sure the USB debugging is on. To do so, go to Settings then ‘About phone’ and tap the build number at least 7 or 8 times till you see a toast notification. Now back to settings and go to developer options to turn on the USB debugging.
  12. Follow the on screen instructions, your phone will be rooted and rebooted in a moment.
  13. Once it reboots, open the recovery installer, connect your phone and follow the on screen instructions.
  14. Once the process is completed, you will have a rooted phone with recovery installed.

Sony Xperia Z3 tips: 12 tricks to boost your Xperience


1. Get the best sound with Sound Equalizer

Smartphones are starting to become more like MP3 players and iPods, not only because you can stream music over the internet, but also because they offer so many possibilities for optimising your listening experience. 

The Sony Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact both offer a sound equalizer platform, which you can adjust manually, or choose a default setting such as jazz, soul or bass boost. You’ll find it under the Settings menu, then Sound settings, Audio settings, Sound effects and finally, Equalizer.

2. Change the default home screen

Every time you press the home button on an Xperia phone, it brings you back to a default home screen. You can set it to take you to a home screen of your choice instead.

To do this, simply long-press on an empty space on the home screen. This will zoom you out of the screen, giving you a bit of an overview, as well as some settings options. Press the button on the upper left corner that looks like a house and select the screen you want to have as a default home screen. Now you won’t have to swipe to it anymore.

3. Ditch typing and learn to swipe

This neat feature is more than just a gimmick: instead of doing the old fashion letter by letter typing, try swipe typing. All you need to do is drag your finger across the screen from letter to letter, and even if you aren’t precise, the system will pick up what you are trying to type.

4. Test the hardware and software functions of your phone

Did you know that you can test the various software and hardware components of your device to see if anything is faulty? It’s easy: open the phone app and dial * # * # 7378423 # * # * . This will bring you to a new menu where you can select Service tests. Here you can do many things, such as check to see if the LED flash is working, for example.

5. Customize icons from the notification bar

You can customize the notification bar so it suits your preferences in the Settings menu. Head into Personalization, then Status bar icons. Once there, you can choose what appears in the notifications bar and what gets the boot.

6. Double tap to activate screen

LG’s Knock On was the envy of all other companies, which soon started to copy the feature, Sony included. To get it on your Xperia Z3, head into Settings and then select Display. Choose Tap to activate and you'll be able to unlock and activate the screen just by double tapping it. You won't even need to press the power button.

7. Operate the screen with gloves

Like most high-end phones, the Xperia Z3 has a glove mode, in which you can operate your phone while keeping your digits warm from the cold. Again, head into Settings, then select Display and activate Glove mode. This will make the screen more sensitive, so it can detect the softer touch from your gloved hand more easily.

8. Use magnification gestures

If you have vision problems, or just want to zoom into your screen, you can make use of magnification gestures. Go to Settings, then Accessibility and toggle Magnification gestures on. This will allow you to zoom into any screen.

9. Adjust the white balance

If you feel the need to toy around with the white balance of your screen, head into the Settings, then Display, and White Balance. Now you can tweak the bars and select the balance that suits your fancy.

10. Improve the microphone sensitivity

Everyday life is made up of ambient noise, and sometimes the microphone on your smartphone can struggle to cope with it all. You can adjust the microphone sensitivity on the Xperia Z3 and Z3 compact. Making it less sensitive will make it easier for the person on the other end of the call to hear you. If you are in a very quiet area, upping the sensitivity would help.

To find this feature, go into Settings, then find Sound, followed by Audio Settings, and finally Microphone sensitivity. Once there, adjust the sensitivity to suit your current situation.

11. Make use of smart backlight control

Smart backlight control is the simple solution to making your phone display stay on while you're using it. Enable smart backlight control and your phone will be able to tell when you're looking at the screen for an extended time, and ensure that it stays on.

Go to Settings > Display > Smart backlight control to enable it. / © ANDROIDPIT

12. Get a theme

Sony's Xperia devices can make use of themes to change how the icons and menus look. There is no downside to using a theme on Xperia, and it can make your device look really cool. What's more, Sony makes many of them available for free. Head to Settings > Themes and tap Get more themes to see what's on offer.
