Question Do you lose data when you root the TL?

Okay so i looked and nobody asked or told if you lose data rooting the TL. If they did then it all got lost in this entirely fattened thread. So I am going to assume that apparently you don't?

IF you do lose data, which data do you lose?

What can you backup?

And how can you back it up?

thank you

For root, you only need to flash an unsecure kernel an possibly a superuser app. No need to wipe anything but dalvik. For installing custom ROMs, it is preferred to wipe. You'll loose everything, as if you had performed a factory reset. Your apps + data, text messages, call list, etc can be back upped by e.g. Titanium Backup or My backup. A backup of your original ROM can be made with Flashtool, see the All-in-One-thread.

For the TL you can't flash kernels because the bootloader can't be unlocked.

No you do not lose data rooting the TL.

Yes, please read the first 3 posts

It blows my mind to think that it is impossible.. How could a work around or something not exist or have not been found by now.. Why has Sony done this to us..:

Is there any hope? Or is it something that simply isnt possible ever for whatever reason. Normally if it can be engineered it can be reverse engineered. But idk much about all this phone and crap so idk. Should I return the phone before my 2 week trial period with it is over or hang onto it and wait till a work around comes out? Thanks
