So they can't be rooted anymore. At least not with their help.
If you ask me they're selling restricted smartphones. But I don't blame them. Their goal is to make profit and surveillance, not open-source Android products.
Anonymous, 14 Jul 2018Well, u dun have to be advanced to comprehend this article. Closest that could have come to the masses was when the Korean govt tried to pass a law to allow uninstalling of bloatware/ built in apps without rooting.
Which, of course, never happened.

You will need root in order to install it.
I'm not 100% sure you can install custom roms, I did it just to see if it works and also needed to perform a e2fsck on the main partition which can only be done if the drive is unmounted.

I can't access the fastboot mode (that is done using combo of power and one of the volume buttons) in my Xperia Z. I cannot install any rom because of locked bootloader.

(In fact I know what it is and I'm just walking around the store feeling bored so why not test the employees?)
