How to root Xperia X from Linux
I was tired of aggressive and annoying ads on my smartphone, especially Youtube ads pissed me of most. To completely disable ads i decided to root my phone. Basically «rooting» a phone gives you super privileges in Android OS. You can modify any system files or install any apps that require root. For me modifying /etc/hosts and blacklisting ad servers there was most important. My phone is Sony Xperia X model F5121 with one sim card.
