    Have you installed the driver in the computer? Sony eSupport - Drivers & Software Updates

    Or, if your kernel is dated earlier than June 3, 2014 (Sewttings/General/About device) you can try Towel Root. It's an app, so you won't need a computer to root.

    Go to Settings>About device. The Kernel has it's own heading, and the build date is in there.

    Too late for Towel Root - it can't root with kernels after June 3, 2014. Check the Sony section over at XDA to see if anyone has come up with a root exploit for that phone yet.

    So I'm confused is rooting available for Sony xperia or not and does my phone need to be unlocked from carier? Every attempt I made to root fails
