Towelroot exploit helps root a number of Sony Xperia models

by XB on 16th June 2014

in Tips & Tricks

towelrootNotorious hacker Geohot (George Hotz) has turned his attention to rooting Android handsets and appears to have come up trumps with his latest exploit. For those that don’t know, Geohot managed to successfully jailbreak the PlayStation 3, which led to him being sued by Sony.

He has created Towelroot, which is an apk file that theoretically should be able to root pretty much any Android device using a kernel built before 3 June 2014 (Android 4.4.2 KitKat and lower).

A number of Sony Xperia users are reporting success in rooting their devices using towelroot including Xperia Z and ZL owners running the latest KitKat update and Xperia SP owners running Android 4.3. Other success stories have been reported by Xperia M, Xperia Z1 Compact and Xperia M2 owners.

To try it yourself, all you need to do is head over to the Towelroot website, click on the lambda and download the apk. Then simply run towelroot i.e. tap “make it ra1n,” to see if it has worked. Some users have problems with SU binaries not updating, if that happens to be the case, use the latest version from here. There is also a very large XDA thread discussing towelroot here.


Thanks audio and Datagubben!

  • Atayga

  • Allan Tenko

  • :-S

    Does it work on xperia zl 4.3?
    I dont know much about rooting, and I may sound like a noob. But suppose I use towelroot to root my phone and sony releases 4.4.2 (.233), will I have to root my phone again after updating?

  • mike

    not working with my xperia Z1

  • Sture Karlsson

    The lawsuit led to him not being able to modify any Sony products, towel root was originally made for Samsung s5, but does anyone think he could get in trouble with Sony for this? Or just Google since its technically Googles software he rooted (on a Sony product)

  • Shady

    Worked on my Xperia V 4.3 Build .210
    After rooting browse for superSU 1.99r4 the install the apk normally you will find the apk in a zip file you can download it from chainfire website
    After installing open superSU install update normally then it should work normally

  • curiousguy

    When I pressed close on my Xperia S, it restarted my phone but didn’t root it. So I tried towelroot again and it worked on the 2nd attempt.
    I know my phone is old and obviously not the same model, but it’s worth a close and retry? My phone didn’t get destroyed at least :)

    Please help

    Please help..

  • Brandon Dean

    It doesn’t work on the T-mobile Xperia Z1S, it just freezes and the phone asks whether you want to close it or wait. If you wait it does nothing, if you close it, it reboots the phone but when the phone restarts you don’t have root. So this doesnt work with the Z1S.

    The Z1S just got root via another method, but I’ll wait until someone makes the process a little more streamlined. Im not on for fiddling with multistep processes that can easily brick my phone. When there is a one click solution like this for the Z1S, thats when I will make the jump.

    Hi guys, I’ve used towelroot APK by GEOHOT and It worked and the phone is rooted without rebooting. The problem comes up when the device turn off, manually or (I don’t know why) after using TA backup to uninstall any apk. The phone begins to restart, appears SONY logo, then XPERIA and finally waves but suddenly turn off. A reboot loop starts over and over again, sometimes 3, 4 and up to 7 times until finally, it manages to restart normally. I’ve noticed that sometimes the loop stop by pressing the power button. Any help or suggestion? Thanks

    I have tried Towelroot with my Sony Xperia Z Ultra C6833 Android 4.4.4 and it didn’t work. What shall I do?

  • Works on Xperia SP / 12.1.A.1.205

    this font is for example in OPPO Find 7

    Towelroot did not work for me. I installed it and followed the directions. Nothing! And I am using Android 4.4.4 on my Sony Xperia Z Ultra.

    Use any aplication(es explorer) to change r/w mount option to system folder then open supersu to update binary.

    No you can’t. In very few mobiles, it is possible. In most mobiles, it is not. For example xperia Z can be done with locked bootloader

  • Vijesh Yechury

    Use busybox first. It is very important. It is also available on play store

  • Vijesh Yechury

    Only very very few mobiles can get CWM on locked bootloader. You are lucky that xperia Z is one among the few. Just google : “CWM xperia z locked bootloader”
