But my apps, settings etc are away after flash, right? I prefer an update to save my phones settings and installed apps.

make a backup then... and restore it afterwards

But if you actually read the instructions and the thread (Instead of asking questions) you will see that you will keep all you apps and settings if you follow the instructions

How to get root on Xperia Z1 with KitKat 4.4.2, 4.4.3 & 4.4.4

If you are unsure, then read this.
If you are still unsure, watch this.

After I was refused a fix or replacement for this broken phone (mainly the touchscreen issue), I think it is time to root. Thank you, gregbradley, for providing useful information. These forums are helpful, unlike Sony themselves, retailers, or organizations for customer protection. Thank god at least somebody cares.
