This makes no sense, you should mean 4.4.2 on FTF ending in 757

1) Flash a FTF ending in 534 (Find files and instructions in the mega collection thread in the general section)
2) Instal Dual Recovery (Find files and instructions in the dual recovery thread in the cross device development section)
3) Flash a pre rooted 757 rom (Find files and instructions in the "Update to 757" thread in the development section)


That's 4 times today I have written that, so I am batting at average today....

Thanks for the help. So all I need to do to get warranty back is to flash stock no root or recovery?

There is no such thing as a stock recovery on sony phones

You will just need to flash a FTF file, but you do not lose warrenty by rooting
