Hi Everyone,

I'm new to this phone and did search the forum but it seems I can't find clear answers, probably my research skills is poor -- hopefully someone could lead me to the right thread so I can possibly downgrade then root my phone or root my phone from this version as most thread available are for Z1 only.

Current Specs:
Model: D5503
Version: 4.4.2
Build Number: 14.3.A.0.681

Thank you.

Did u upgrade from 4.3 and previously rooted in 4.3? Or phone come with 4.4 straight out of box?

I am guessing you need to revert back 4.3 > use exploit to root > backup TA > upgrade > unlock BT > Root

If you follow the guide you will have rooted 4.4. Note that this rooting process will keep your bootloader locked and keep DRM keys.

Ther method of zxz0O0 is not downgrading anything.... I root the phone using his method and everything works better now.... BUT remember to backup your files from the internal SD, because you will loose everything

You can directly unlock the bootloader without TA backup but then you will lose your warranty.
