Default [Q] About Root

I need to know, if I root my Z1 and after I need to use warranty, what will I need to do? Only reflash the original .ftf firmware? And about recovery? Sorry the noob question, but it's my first Xperia...

Yes, as long as you don't unlock the bootloader and just root your warranty will be preserved once you get back on stock rom. All you will need to do is flash stock ftf and the custom recovery will be removed as well.

The only way to root is by downgrading first. The video guide is in my signature
