So I got a notification saying a new rom is out and i tried to update but said I needed kb2917929 so i download it and it says not compatible with operating system... Im on win8.1 update 1 64 bit and yes I got the kba for 64 bit but nothing??

wtf is going on here?

While Im at it how do I root / unlock bootloader for custom roms in future reference I thought they disabled camera?

sorry for the noob questions i have literally no idea what to do with this damn thing

I would personally recommend you to flash the KitKat update via Flashtool. (remember to uncheck the wipe data option)

Other than that, the camera issue with unlocking the bootloader has been fixed. You can follow the following guide to downgrade, backup your TA partition and unlock your bootloader:

After that you can run any custom ROM made for the Xperia Z1.
