OK, so Flashtool needs to detect the device, then I can use it to unlock the device. I noticed DooMkernel to be rather extensive in its features, so I think I'll give that one a go.
Does unlocking the bootloader void guarantee? Or flashing a custom kernel or ROM?
What the heck is Emma?
Yes any sort of modifying will void your garentee or warrenty
download flashtool (i think links can be found on Doomlords posts)
plug in your Device
click on Bootloader unlock
and folow what it tells you
(to get your iemi code you can type *#06#* in the dialer or go to settings then about then status (it may be there)
and emma is Sony's useless flashtool (to me and you)
(you want the flashtool devloped by bin4ry , doomlord and someone else (cant spell their name)
also side note
i recomend DoomKernel,
DoomLord is a master in Xperia Devices and is very good at coding, his kernels are allways the safest to run
also some other notes make sure his kernel fw version is the same as on your z1 and also make sure that the drivers are installed for your z1
googling can help you here
