Question [Q] Updated to 4.3 No ROOT :(

Hi all,

Just updated to Sony's latest offering .266 and, obviously, lost ROOT access.

Has anyone any info on how to re-root? I am on a locked bootloader and cannot unlock it.

Please advise? I have lost all of my custom settings and cannot change until I have root access.

There's no root method for locked bootloader for 4.3 as for now. Or you can try the root method by sir @jancsessz tho you'll need to downgrade it back to 4.1.2. Didn't work for me tho but worth a try

Here's the link http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2646904

Soo first you'd want to downgrade to 4.1.2 which can be easily done using flashtool

And then use Doomlord's method. This one is for .245 and .254

When you've done rooting you'll need CWM. Not sure about the original thread but here's the download link

Extract and run the install.bat after rooting and you'll get both root access and CWM

Then follow the tutorial from earlier to update to 4.3 and voila!
