How do I make a backup of TA if my phone is not rooted yet? How do I root .201 without unlocking bootloader (I want to make TA backup first)?

Also, I don't suppose anyone has a copy of the original demo video that came with the phone, that they'd be kind enough to upload to Zippyshare or somewhere similar. I've played other videos, but I'm familiar with that one, so it would be really helpful to test now I've updated to 4.3. I deleted mine some time ago, and forgot to keep a copy.

Thanks!

It doesn't work, it hasn't even been implemented in the stock rom

Was it working properly in 4.1.2? Or was that the reason I couldn't tell the difference?

I've downloaded and used the ROM in this thread, which contains a fix for the Bravia Engine, but if it's not working in stock, how do I tell what this fix achieves, if anything?

Enjoy your Rooted stock ROM with all the benefits of Locked bootloader without downgrading to .257 and flashing new ROM.

Could you name and link the files?
What doomkernel?
What is a SuperSufix?
.201 kernel - which - the stock one?
