    Sir I have a few things to ask(as I’m new to this)
    Q.1-Will the preinstalled apps(For e.g. Sony’s walkman,movies,album, Sony select, track id etc.) be removed after rooting?
    Q.2-What about the Sony’s default user interface? Will it be on my phone after rooting or stock android UI ?
    Q.3-What about the system/OS updates? Will I be able to receive the latest android OS version On my phone?

      Hey Aayush,
      All you apps will stay intact and the UI will be the same.
      You will also be able to update your phone without any problems.

        Thank you sit…
        One more thing after rooting will I be able to get latest OS on my device?

          Rooting will only give you complete control over your phone.

          Installing a custom ROM is a totally different thing.
