How to root Xperia E1 using towelroot

I recently root my xperia e1 dual using towelroot and it's working, i would like to share it with you guy's, so in this article i will show you how to root xperia e1 using towelroot.

First of all i want to say thank you to geohot for creating towelroot, it's not easy to root android 4.3, i tried so many tools but they all fail, it's very frustrating.

Anyway, you want to know how to root your xperia e1 right? that's why you come here. Okay just follow this short tutorial, this should work on xperia e1 single and dual.

Step by step how to root xperia e1 using towelroot :
  1. download towelroot apk (tr.apk) from the official website, or from here.
  2. install towelroot (tr.apk) on your xperia e1.
  3. run towelroot.
  4. press the "make it ra1n" button.
  5. exit towelroot and go to play store, install SuperSU from chainfire.
  6. open the SuperSU app.
  7. you will be prompted to update the SU binary, select continue.
  8. you will be prompted again "How would you like to install the SU binary?", select normal
  9. wait until the process finish.
  10. it should says "Installation success !"

Once finish, you might want to reboot/restart your xperia e1, just to make sure the super user (root) works properly.

Now that you have root access on your phone, you can do whatever you want, move game data to sdcard, remove system app, etc.

This rooting method tested and working on sony xperia e1 dual, running jelly bean 4.3, firmware 20.0.B.0.84.
