iv'e been trying to root my z1 for a couple of hours now, iv'e tried all the tools that have been listed on all tutorial posts such as, flashtools,
ROOT“óŹ¦, and kingo android root all 3 of them without any success
iv'e posted the log from when trying to root my phone with flashtools below and it just hangs on "30/013/2014 16:13:37 - INFO - Waiting for device. After 60secs, stop waiting will be forced"

im running the latest stock 4.3 stock firmware, can anyone give me any advice ?

You have to downgrade to 4.2 to root then upgrade to 4.3 with root & recovery using NUT'S method

Just one advice. Read tutorial again. Carefully.
No chance for root latest 4.3 straight away, unless you downgrade firmware
