Thanks I have done this.

Guys another newbie question... I did the following:

Downgraded to .534 - successful
Ran vRoot to get root - successful
Ran TA backup and do a backup - successful

Am stuck on "installing cwm recovery for lb" step.. I followed guide from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...or+lb+doomlord to install DualRecovery and did both the SuperSU and the SuperUser and I dont think it actually install the cwm recovery "stuff". I get the following:

"CWM and TWRP Dual Recovery for Xperia Z locked bootloader"
"script created by krabappel2548, modified by [NUT]"
"Ported to Z Ultra by Krabappel2548"

[ 1. SuperSU ]
[ 2. SuperUser ]
[ 3. Remove ]
[ 4. Exit ]
Choose your root app to install or another option if wanted [1,2,3,4]?2
Step1 : Waiting for Device.
Step2 : Sending the recovery files.

Step3 : Setup of dual recovery.
Look at your device and grant supersu access
Press any key to continue AFTER granting root access.
unknown option -- a
Usage: su [options] [--] [-] [LOGIN] [--] [args...]

-c, --command COMMAND pass COMMAND to the invoked shell
-h, --help display this help message and exit
-, -l, --login pretend the shell to be a login shell
-m, -p,
--preserve-environment do not change environment variables
-s, --shell SHELL use SHELL instead of the default /system/bin/sh
-u display the multiuser mode and exit
-v, --version display version number and exit
-V display version code and exit,
this is used almost exclusively by RomasterSU
Press any key to continue . . .
killing RIC, remount /system rw and temporarily disabling the RIC service...
copy recoveries to system.
rename stock chargemon
copy hacked chargemon to system.
copy dualrecovery.sh to system.
Waiting for your device to reconnect.
After entering CWM for the first time, reboot to system to complete this install

Installation finished. Enjoy the recoveries

Press any key to continue . . .

Have I missed something?

I should mentioned that I am trying to upgrade to RomAur v4.1 AROMA LB C6903 jb4.3, I was on .257 with no root so had to downgrade to 534 to get root, so I can backup my TA. so did deviate from the install instruction on RomAur's post.

Possibly, you didn't mention turning on usb debugging. Double check that because I also do not see that in your log capture
