Hi guys,

I'm not exactly a noob when it comes to rooting, I've rooted every phone I've owned for the past 4/5 years, but I recently got an Xperia Z1 (C6903), and can't exactly figure out where the hell to start with this one.

I've tried Kingo, which failed, so I thought I'd come here. Here are my current non-rooted settings:

Android Version: 4.4.2
Kernel: 3.4.0
Build Number: 14.3.A.0.681

What is the best way for me to root and install custom firmware?

Cheers guys!

2) Instal dual recovery (Find it in the cross device development thread)
