actually i dont care much about DRM key anyway. send for warranty only if hardware is spoilt. the most ask them do last warranty repair.

if DRM key n warranty is so much important, than sony would hav "Bootloader unlocked: NO" for all phone in the world

actually sony doesnt do the warranty n repair. it depends on the company in tat particular country. like example for doomlord, his one is only flap damage, but can get 1 to 1 exchange. tat shows tat how good the company is in tat country.

unlocking bootloader n rooting is pretty much standard.

technology n software is improving at a fast rate. the most i get a latest newer phone.

Ok, here you are right but you have to understand that, what is not important you, it may be important for others, especially when we talking about Warranty.
We are here to give advice, then we should do this in the right way and inform users of any risk.

hey eclyptos, hope you still around this thread.

i quite agree with you, since i am one of those who care about warranty.

I hope it's fine to make a question about rooting here 'coz i can't make post on there. anw, i've been trying to follow the steps on here, but i find some trouble.

My status is :
Device : Xperia Z1 C6903
Build number : 14.2.1.136

what I did was :
Installing Flashtool 9.13 on PC
Download C6903_14.2.A.0.290.flashable.zip and put it on my first page of SDcard on device
Download C6903_14.2.A.0.290.Stripped.tft inside flashtool/firmwares folder on PC
Install TWRP on my device (canít be used, root needed), canít create a backup *step 5 failed*

XZDualRecovery Question : Iíve download it, connect my device to PC then enable USB debugging mode. Execute the install.bat from XZDualRecovery and choose number 2. Does anything really happened? *step 6 failed?*

Then I install the flashmode and fastboot drivers from flashtool folders. Tried to flashmode C6903_14.2.A.0.290 Brand Generic NCB but it stopped halfway.

The Video Tutorial on that thread explain very well what you should do, did you watched it?

You have to downgrade via Flashtool to .534 FW provided by NUT to not lose IMEI, Root the Firmware with Bin4ry, when you are rooted instal Dual Recovery, then follow the instruction to update directly to .136 from HERE.

All the files you find in .290 thread, Post #3, Watch the Video, then follow .136 thread.
