Hey guys. After updating to 4.3 android I have to root my device again. But there is only hard way to do this. I have to unlock bootloader (I don't want to do this, what if I brick my phone up?) then do other hard things.

And I don't know. Should I do this, or wait for easy root method, like we had for 4.1? Also I heard that new firmware 12.1.A.1.195 is going to come out, after I update to that firmware I will have to root again, right?

So please give me suggestions, and if it's better to root, which one is safest way to unlock BL and then root the device

Thanks

I didn't know Unlockroot ever worked on Xperia SP... Did you test it ?

@bero1608 : Just search on google "unlockroot" and take the first link, but i'm not sure it will work on this device...

Nope it doesn't work on SP

I think its for old phones, like Xperia X10 and so on, which had android 2.0, 2.3.....

There is a way to root without unlocking bootloader, but you'll have to flash a rom for it which will delete all userdata from your device

@bero1608 : Anyway, you don't have to unlock your bootloader to root on 4.3 ! You can follow this thread . I'm on this rom, and everything is fine, and I am root

@Nanostray

That's why I don't want to do that...

@SmileySob

I have to downgrade to .254 then root then .257 then blahblahblahblahblah and .266 I can't do that I can't risk @DooMLoRD save me, release easy root

I think I will wait for new firmware which comes out mid-march, so I wont need to re-root again and again.........

Thanks for replies
