Also do you guys have a link for step-by-step root/recovery guide?
Hmm acording to this thread you need to be unlocked to install CWM. can it be done without?
Ota will not work, if you're still on 10.31.C.0.136 and you want last 4.3 rom with root on locked bootloader you have to do this :


1) Root 10.31.C.0.136 with this tool (vroot) : http://www.mgyun.com/en/GetVRoot
2) Then Install @[NUT] dual recovery : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2261606, you need to dl this file from his repository : http://nut.xperia-files.com/download...N0YWxsZXIuemlw

You will now have a rooted rom with custom recovery

3) Make a nandroid backup

4) Next to upgrade to last 4.3 rom (10.4.1.B.0.109),first read this thread for the 'how to' :http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2588442 but you have to use the files from this thread : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2671276

Need some reading to understand the process but this is the only way atm
* Samsung Galaxy Note 3 n9005
* Sony Xperia Tablet Z SGP312

Thanks.
I have the dualrecovery installed and did a backup also.
I believe it is also rooted (there wan an option to root after installing the dualrecovery mod)
Is there any major beneficial reason to go from 4.2.2 to 4.3?

New UI on most of Sony apps, as well as being more updated, few more functions here and there...

Plus some of the stuff from here:
