So much fail.
Do not use vroot, it sends your imei number to an ip address in China.
Also, unlocking your bootloader on 4.2 will break your camera, it clearly says so on the Sony official site about unlocking your bootloader.

Now, the solution.
Restore your ta partition.
Use pccompanion to update to the latest firmware
Unlock your bootloader again
Flash a custom kernel of your choice
Install super user app of your choice

.534 is 4.2 FW. the camera will not work with an unlocked boot.

Follow the advice I gave above

but i have unlocked it in 4.3 does it make any sence by unlocking the bootloader in 4.3 and i didn't get any recovery mode... so.. i downgrader to 4.2 and installed the dual recovery as the thread says it needs .534 firmware to root properly...

I have to ask

Why are you unlocking your bootloader? What have you done it for? You do not get a recovery mode just by unlocking the boot, you have to flash a custom kernel with recovery in it

You either do all the downgrading and install dual recovery if you have a locked bootloader


OR


You unlock your bootloader, flash a custom kernel with recovery and install super user app

there is no need for both approaches and that's why you are getting problems
