The term “rooting” in Android means a lot more that it verbal implications. It is a pretty much like a genie that is capable of realizing any wish related to your Android device that you might think of. Not happy with your phone’s battery life, performance, look of the UI, volume loudness, audio quality, or the bloat apps? Rooting is there to help with solutions to all such issues. It might even let you enjoy some desirable features from other Android device! Keeping such things in view, root access on an Android device is just something you must have if you want to enjoy your device fully.

There was a time when rooting Android devices was pretty easier than it is nowadays. All major OEMs and carriers keep patching all holes (in the name of security) that let our developers in to gain root access, And so, there is always a hide-and-seek going on between manufacturers carriers and the developers. Thankfully, it is the great minds of Android community that win the game in most cases. As Android enthusiasts, we always welcome any root exploit that hits the scene, but sometimes good news comes in multitudes. Just a few months ago, we did a detailed review of a root tool called Framaroot that works on a large number of devices.

Today, we have come up with another rooting toolkit that is compatible with not less than 25 Sony Xperia devices across various versions of firmwares. The Xperia Root Toolkit has been developed by DooMLoRD and is capable of giving root access on the following Sony devices (tested on these):
