Talking [Q] Bootloader

Hi all

I just wanted to confirm something and put my mind at rest. I really don't like the idea of all the O2 branding or bloatware on my Sony Xperia Z1 (C6903). After typing in the *#*#7378423#*#* code into my phone, my Bootloader unlocking status is set to NO.
Does that really mean there is absolutely nothing I can to to Root my phone and get rid of my carriers control and stupid branding? And if not, why is this?

Thank you

David.

Well it may be hard to root it, but you'll have to find an external method to unlock the bootloader. Look for other methods. Till now I can only tell you to disable these carrier applications.
