XDA always have been a useful resource for Android device owners. Here’s another useful tool for the Sony Xperia U users. You could root and unroot Xperia U quite easily with this handy tool developed by XDA forum member AlexDroid00. And not just rooting and unrooting, it also allows you to perform various other actions.
The tool runs only on Windows and gives you options to perform the following functions on your Sony Xperia U :
- Flash kernel with Fastboot
- Flash kernel with ADB
- ADB/FASTBOOT Tool (reboot, install/update applications, wipe data/cache, run a logcat, Reverse Tethering of capslock66)
- Test Boot Animation
- Unlock Bootloader
- Root and Unroot (automatic when you have bootloader unlocked and .89 kernel)
- Install Driver/ADB/XU/FASTBOOT
- Select Language
Besides these, the app also gives you options to deal with the tool itself (like updating, boot animation etc).
So if you want to root, unroot, flash kernel, unlock bootloader or do any of the above actions on your Sony Xperia U, then head over to the original thread to get downloading. If you have any queries about this tool, you may post on the same thread.
