Default [Q] Update firmware with unlocked bootloader & root (14.3.A.0.757)

Hello,

I found a lot of threads how I update firmware with locked bootloader & root (14.3.A.0.757) but none with unlocked bootloader.

I asked because OTA I get the error that updating is not possible.

How is this working?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Regards
Michael

I am also looking for answers to this question.
I am the root and you can not download software.

easiest way:
download any 14.3.A.0.757 ftf file and flash it through flashtool (uncheck wipe data)
flash Advance Stock Kernel with Recovery v04 (FW:14.3.A.0.757} by DooMLoRD through flashtool
download then flash latest super user

that is it, now you have new firmware with root and CWM recovery and without losing your data

if you prefer to use [Z1 Compact][TWRP][PhilZ Touch][CWM] XZDualRecovery by [NUT]
just download the latest flashable dual recovery from http://nut.xperia-files.com/
and flash it then flash the kernel from the same ftf you flashed before (meaning exclude everything except kernel)
that is it, you'll have dual recovery
