  • Move all your important data from Internal storage to a computer and remove SDcard (make this in case you loose something)
  • You need to have firmware version 23.0.A.2.93 (for D6603/D6653) or 23.0.F.1.74 (D6633_23.0.F.1.74_CE) (for D6633) installed on your phone. If not, please download ftf file and flash it with Flashtool (newer firmware versions will fail root:
D6603_23.0.A.2.93 | Mirror
  • Start the phone, don't make any initial setup. Skip it and go directly to Settings > About Phone. Tap 7 times on Buld number and a Developer options will be activated.
  • Go to Settings > Developer options and tick USB debugging an Allow mock locations.
  • Go to Settings > Security and tick Unknown sources, untick Verify apps.
  • Enter your phone in Flight mode
  • Download giefroot rooting tool v3 and extract the files on your PC (Windows only). [original thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/cros...-4322-t3011598]
  • Connect your phone to the computer.
  • Start install.bat
  • If until that moment you have never connected you phone to this PC via adb you will get a popup message on you phone to authorize this computer. Do it.
  • The procedure will start. After a while your phone should restart by itself.
  • After the phone boots up wait until a popup from SuperSu appears asking for adb shell root rights. Do it.
  • When you give the permission you have to see on the computer the sign "Device rooted".
  • If it says Device not rooted repeat all the steps running install.bat again.

1. Get root on old firmware with @zxz0O0 masterpiece tool (OP) and install Dual Recovery by @[NUT]
PS To install dual recovery I had first to install latest busybox using busybox installer (busybox.net)
2. Create a pre-rooted firmware from latest .77 fw ftf with the not less outstanding PRFCreatortool, including latestSuperSU and Dual Recovery flashable zips (just follow thread instructions)
3. Put pre-rooted firmware flashable zip at internal memory (/sdcard0)
4. Open NDR Utils app and reboot into TWRP recovery
5. Flash pre-rooted firmware and then... POWER OFF device (DO NOT REBOOT)
6. Open FlashTool and flash latest .77 fw - EXCLUDING System !!!
7. Done!

You will get latest .77 fw rooted with dual recovery installed!
Above procedure must work to get lollipop rooted too (from KK to L)!


DRM Function Restore

1.Flash ftf file "23.0.1.A.5.77" by Flashtool. - Wipe appslog, cache, data - and reset customizations
2.Relock bootloader by Flashtool.
3.Flash ftf file "23.0.1.A.5.77" by Flashtool AGAIN. - Wipe appslog, cache, data
4.Unlock bootloader by Flashtool.
5.Flash boot.img "AndroPlusKernel v12" by Fastboot.
6.Install DRM restore zip by TWRP.

Unlocked bootloader
.77 based firmware for D6653 (I tried several firmwares but the one that worked for me was the .77 firmware for PH market downloaded from flashtool)
AndrosPlusKernel v15 (extracted boot.img from the zip to be flashed)
DRM restore zip from that original thread above (placed in sd card)

Note - Key here is to not restart/boot the phone after each step in the instructions above. Just keep phone off and unplugged after each step. I realized that leaving the phone connected in flashmode for a while will make it boot, so I just unplugged it while waiting for flashtool to prepare FTF for flashing. Then plug it in again with vol down button pressed.
