I had already rooted my z1 when on 4.2.2... But now the 4.3 updates removed the root... Unlocking bootloader ia only option as far as I know.. So I want to ask is..
A) if I unlock bootloader will I loose xreality engine? If yes how do I save that from not happening.
B) is there a "stable" way to install CWM recovery amd not unlock bootloader..? Is there is.. Will mybstock features be affected such as loss of xreality n DRM keys?
C) is there a way to unlock bootloader without looaing DRM keys? If so again will I loose the z1 features?
A) if you unlock bootloader you WILL loose xreality. To get it back restore backed up TA partition. You can't have unlocked bootloader and xreality at the same time. Here is a video on how to get full root on 4.3: http://youtu.be/1aq9YTlfCgc
B) Yes you can install the recovery on any rooted Xperia Z1. You don't need an unlocked bootloader to be rooted.
Here are some more explanations if you are confused http://youtu.be/l78p_2ShPS0
C) You will always loose DRM keys when unlocking but you can back them up before unlocking to restore them later
