when you think that it could be possible to root our Xperia T with 4.3 update?

Downgrade to 4.1, root, upgrade with root to 4.3, this is the best way currently.

I wouldn't be surprised if we don't get a direct root method for 4.3 since we can do what I said above

That's the method if bootloader is unlocked, there's a few of us not willing to unlock it yet.

Use flashtool to roll back to 4.1.2, doomlord's rooting technique for rooting that firmware, jump to the development forum to grab the touch recovery by peetr, and then use darklord's deodexed stuff to get rooted 295 - did it today and the steps are relatively well mapped out for you - I can vouch that it works for locked bootloaders on stock firmware

Yes, you can downgrade, but you can't upgrade using Sony Update or Companion, you can flash rooted rom via recovery. If you upgrade with Sony tool you'll loose root.

Yeah, so obviously when I say downgrade and root, I then mean you can have the intention of flashing one of the stock rooted 4.3 ROMs
