    I can verify it works! You have to do a little scripting, but works like a charm & now my Z1s is rooted!!

    update your SDk platforms by downloading the Z1s drivers.located here ...http://developer.sonymobile.com/down...-c6916-driver/.

    guide for updating Sony SDK platforms and Drivers
    located here*
    http://developer.sonymobile.com/down...-c6916-driver/

    Open the SDKmanager.exe and update the drivers by clicking the boxes next to the Sony drivers that state "not updated" in the left hand field

    once you update the drivers navigate to the folder that contains the sdkmanage.exe file and click open the "Platfor-tools" folder
    hold shift and right click within the opened file location and choose "Open command prompt here"

    you now have a CMD window open at the sdk../tools folder

    download the pwn file located here:*http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...22953885514290

    extract the file and place it in the C:\AndroidSDK\platform-tools folder

    connect your phone*[ insuring you have android debugging enabled ]*and enter the commands lines in one at a time

    adb push pwn /data/local/tmp/pwn

    adb shell chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/pwn

    adb shell /data/local/tmp/pwn


    give the CMD window a few seconds to recover after you finish entering the lines
    then reboot phone

    once rebooted refer to my post about creating at boot script once created reboot and you are done with the root process..

    Refer to next post on scripting...follow everything in both word for word.

    just use script manager to create an on boot script using these 2 lines
    su -c "/system/xbin/kill_ric.sh"

    su -c "mount -o remount,rw /system"

    Use this guide to create the script if you dont know how
