Hi,

Before anybody says, yes I am aware there is a Search function - but I find a huge number of threads all with unclear posts, which is why i'm asking here.

I have an Ultra, SIM-locked to O2-UK, Bootloader Unlocking not allowed, and fully upgraded to14.3.A.0.681. Please can someone explain to me the easiest method to Root my device - and advise whether any downgrading and data loss will occur, etc? I'm desparate to tinker!

Thanks

This one for a start http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2569904
And this one for downgrading (also has basic root instructions) http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2593918
The first link has kinks to the Sony KK threads for locked BL
