Xperia Unlocked, but is not rooted?

Hi, by this method i unlocked (probably) my smartphone Xperia C5 Ultra Dual. In powershell (computer) was written that device is rooted and second time i can't root it with this method, but by some apps for android like Root Checker, Link2Sd rood access is not found. How to understand, unlocked bootloader, but it's not rooted smartphone?

 

I still can't uninstall preinstalled apps, i can't get root access, Xperia Companion says that i can't update or repair smartphone, EMMA still checking my registration. How to finally get root access, any ideas?

 

Thanks in advance....

 

P.S. Keep in mind to flash with Flashtool for Xperia models like C or M, impossible, coz bricking smartphones...

Hi

please follow the steps because it looks like you have the wrong version of EMMA

1. remove the Emma from your computer

2. download and install EMMA from this link

3. Flash your phone and enjoy

unlocking the bootloader won't grant you root access, it'll be wise to check the XDA Forum

Uliwooly, thanks. Actually i did not knew that. In internet when i looked for root i found a  lot of methods how to unlock bootloader, so i thought will be root access too. Well, will be need now to root somehow or lock bootloader again and do status quo, but i don't know how... biggest problem is Marshmallow for which there is no normal root method yet and probably will not be at all for this model Slightly frowning Face

XDA Forum is checked already, there is one method with flashing, as i know Flashtool for Xperia can brick smartphone (C4/C5 ultra/M5 models), so i'm afraid to do that, coz one time i was bricked Slightly smiling Face

Sadness thing is that i can't repair/update my smartphone right now with Xperia Companion, i can't use EMMA, coz waiting for registration check... So at this time i did not got root, which i need and chance to repair smartphone and most sadness things that Developers Sony's chatting very rarely and to get these all information it's enough hard. Probably i would not unlock if i had known Slightly frowning Face

 

If someone have others advises feel free to share (links or something like this), thanks Slightly smiling Face

Thank you very much, i found in internet Flash_tool_for_Xperia_6.zip with customization.ini so registration is not require anymore. I downloaded and installed version from Sony developers web site, maybe i found older version. Thanks anyway for helping
