Root and Recovery for the Sony Xperia T

It is always exciting when a new device is rooted. It means that users can enjoy the freedom of a rooted device, usually resulting in options such as custom recoveries, and so on. Of course, it’s always better when a device gets both at once. The Sony Xperia T is the latest device to get both root and recovery.

The method is something many of us have dealt with before. It involves unlocking the device’s bootloader and installing an insecure kernel. XDA Recognized Contributor krabappel2548 released an insecure kernel that helps get users rooted. The kernel features include:

– Autoroot
– Busybox
– Init.d support
– Insecure
– Debuggable
– CWM included

To install it, you’ll need the Android SDK. From there, download the kernel and place it in the same folder with ADB and Fastboot. Then, use Terminal or Command Prompt to flash it via Fastboot.

There are actually two kernels available. One for root and a second for root and recovery. Additionally, krabappel2548 has included the stock kernel. If you’d like to know more, go to the original thread.
