It means that you can unlock your bootloader... It doesn't come unlocked you have to unlock it..

Refer this for more information http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2354721

For Root refer this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2440375

There is no flash counter to worry about with Sony phones...... Once you have unlocked bootloader your warranty is void even if you relock it.

Rooting does not void warranty.

Why?? I will relock bootloader, restore DRM keys, flash stock rom and will have same system when was when I bought the phone.

That I have "order" unlocking bootloader key doesen't mean that I did it.
Nothing in my life can scare me, I have children.

Yes. But when you relock it, restore TA partition and flash stock there will be no sign that you have done it.

You may be correct... but most people will say that unlocking bootloader well void the warranty.

Yes, but you have given the imei of your device to Sony in order to get the unlock code. So if something happens to you phone and you get it at a Sony repairing center, the first thing they do is to read the imei from your device and check if it is in there database

And so?? They also have my phone in database when I bought it. I dont understand your reasoning.
I have buy a bulb yesterday. Just in case. Thats mean that I have to immediately change it??
No.

And for confirmation.
I ave do it twice.
First with my old LG GT540. (Stock -> root -> cyanogenmod (warranty off) -> flash stock without recovery, and fastboot (warranty on)
Second. Xperia SP (Stock -> root -> bootloader unlock (warranty off) -> existenz -> relocking BL -> Restoring TA -> Stock ROM (warranty on)

Both of them was rapairing without aditional costs.
End.
