Default [Q] Rooting Issues

Hi,
Im trying to root my xperia z1 with 4.3
im using vroot and the guide here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2439328

For some reason it asks me to let it do a full restore, i have backed up so i did wat i think it meant (dont speak chinese)
then after that instead of a tick it shows a cross and it obviously hasnt rooted the device?

What am i doing wrong?!

Thanks

You didn't do anything wrong, but currently Android 4.3 cant be rooted. if you want root, you have to flash 257 then 534 then root and OTA update to 257. and if you get OTA to the 290 android 4.3 you might keep root.
Don't forget to hit the THANKS button! If I helped.

You can root, but you need to flash custom boot.img first. Just follow steps on http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2573921

One of the 1st rules in XDA: Don't ask for ETAs

You must follow the threads and see, if one dev find a solution to root locked bootloader for 4.3. But take a look in the Xperia Z1 Android Development section. Or this thread, there a lot of hints and howtos for root.
