The way cold be developing a cwm for locked bootloaders and then flash a prerooted rom in zip format or a stock rom and then a rooting patch.

I think CWM is not necessary. Any way to copy all 4.3 system files with su binares (to partition /system with transfer all permissions) should works, then flash 4.3 kernel. But it should be done before Android core will start (otherwise Android will crash before you copy all files), maybe add in init.d or any other boot file, script which copy all 4.3 files with all privileges...
I don't have this phone now so i can't test it.

Any methods found to root phones which have locked bootloader? This is really sad

Only way to gain root without voiding warranty is to go back to stock 4.1.2,then take backup of ta partition , unlock the bootloader, and flash 4.3 ftf..

Else if we unlock the bootloader on 4.3,we can't relock it again as we can't take backup of ta partition

Anyone working on it?

Even I did have the same doubt, how we going to install the cwm? By flashing a stock 4.3 kernel which have cwm?
