Hi there, what i did was unlocking the bootloader. As long as you do it carefully and follow instructions, dont skip any, it should be fine.

Firstly backup your data and stuff.
Next, flash .159 ftf, link here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2469191
Then root it with vroot.
After that backup your TA, link here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...8&highlight=ta
Then go to sony's website and unlock your bootloader. Warning: your warranty will be voided.
After that flash supersu or a pre rooted rom. Lots of those on XDA.

If you need any help PM me. Just be careful

hit thanks if i helped

Not thousand, but only hundreds of reported bricks. Not many
Hit Thanks if my post was useful (most of them are not )
