Remote SIM Access

The Sony Xperia Z3 is supported by the rSAP app. With Lollipop you have to use at least version 2.5.1 of the installer app.


The Sony Xperia Z3 is compatible with the Phonebook Access Profile (PBAP) of my Bluetooth Phonebook app.

How to root

The Xperia can be rooted the "usual" way by unlocking the bootloader. This leads to the loss of DRM keys and some features, like camera noise reduction. See ... ot-loader/

There is a root method for locked bootloaders ( ... 2-t3011598) which works on older Z3 firmware. You can downgrade the firmware using flashtool, then root the phone with Giefroot, flash the custom recovery and finally update to the latest firmware version with a zip file.

Since I always try to modify as less as possible on my phones, I did the following steps on my phone. This wipes all data, so be sure to create a backup somehow!

When there is an update available, don't install the OTA update, otherwise you'll lose root! Simply repeat the first and the last two steps to create a zip file of the new version and flash it in recovery.
