You can't Backup your TA if you Unlocked your Bootloader. You lost your DRM keys permanently. You will not be able to re-lock you bootloader and you are not covered by your warranty. Sorry but you should read carefully before do anything.

oh.. I hope everything will still fine .. but I saw option in flashtool to relock BL.. it won't relock my phone ?? ... and what is the safe way to update my device firmware when 4.4 kitkat arrives to xperia z1 ??? and what are the risks now ?? what I must avoid and never do ?? any advices for me ???... sure it's better to stay one 4.3 without root rather than breaking my phone
thank you

Should be all fine but the safest way was backup TA first because if one day happen something on your phone you can't go via warranty.

You still losing your DRM keys so even if he does it's compromise, no x-reality, bionz engine and bravia.

This is not a problem, the FTFs will be upload here on XDA like for .290 and Custom Roms as well.

This is what we said already, the risk is if you brick the phone and the warranty will not cover that.

You don't have to avoid anything just read carefully everything when you try to do something. My advice is now to wait for the confirmed and safe way to root or update. In your position you already lost the safest way so I will root, update or flash custom roms to enjoy the phone but remember, it's your own risk and responsability.
