There is no need to use any root tool or unlock the bootloader
I have a Bell C6906 that is Carrier-locked. I successfully flashed .534, using Flashtool but I can't seen to get DualRecovery installed. I downloaded "Z1-lockeddualrecovery2.7.123-BETA.installer" from Nut's site, but when I run the install.bat file, it never detects the device when I connect the cable.
It just says:
Waiting for Device, connect USB cable now...
What mode does the phone need to be in for this step to work? I've tried to connect it while the phone was powered up into normal operation (which maps the phone's SDCard and SDCard1 to drive letters), didn't work. I've also tried connecting the cable while in either Fastboot or Flashmode, and neither of those worked.
Ultimately, I just want to achieve Root so my apps can work again with files on the external SD Card. Can I do that without DualRecovery?
I've unlocked, rooted, and flashed many ROM's on HTC and Samsung devices, and this is my first experience with Sony devices. I understand that the fault might lie with the carrier, Bell, for not allowing unlocking of the device.
Very frustrating, and any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
