Procedure for How to root Sony Xperia Z2 and Z3 on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop

Sony Xperia Z2 and Z3 users who got stuck waiting for a root method after updating to Android 5.0.2 Get started below:

1. Download the file XperiaRoot_ALP.zip to your smartphone or computer from this link and extract the zip file.
2. Open the folder you extracted, called XperiaRoot, and you will see an ALP folder that contains the following .apk files: Busybox, Recovery, Root, and SuperSU. A folder named XperiaRoot will be generated. If you unzipped the archive on your computer, you’ll have to transfer the extracted files somewhere on your smartphone.
3. Go to your smartphone’s Settings > Security menu and check the the option to install applications from Unknown sources.
4. Install the Root.apk file. Open the app and tap on the ‘Root’ button, then wait for it to root your device.
5. Install the Busybox.apk and Recovery.apk files in the same way.
6. Open the installed Recovery app and tap ‘Install Recovery’.
7. Boot into Recovery mode! First, power off your device. Then, press the Power on button, and when the LED light starts flashing, press the volume up or down buttons a couple of times. If that doesn’t work, reboot, activate USB Debugging on your phone, and use Minimal ADB or ADB from the Android SDK to reboot the handset into recovery mode by typing “adb reboot recovery” inside the terminal.
8. Once you are into recovery mode, select Install and choose the SuperSU.zip file from the ALP folder.
9. Reboot your phone after flashing. You will see SuperSU app in App drawer, and the next step is to check for root access by using any Root Checker app from the Play Store.
