Hey guys i just updated to 290 via pc companion, is it safe to unlock the bootloader? And is it possible to gain root? I just moved to the z1 from the nexus4

Are there ant steps to install a custom recovery with 4.3?

You don't need to unlock the bootloader to get root. If you wanna keep it locked and get root:

If you do decide to unlock the bootloader. BACKUP YOUR TA:

Yes, before that you have to Backup your TA. Remember, unlocking bootlader will void your warranty.
