This kind of posts/threads are normally created by moderators. However I would like to step in before any moderator has to (sorry guys )
Alright to the point:
Lately I've seen the general section being overloaded with questions and problems. I also see many threads appearing about rooting and the KitKat update.
Let me be clear:
For Discussion about any rumors or news regarding any update for our device please go to here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2516663
If there is any update or rumor please be kind to post either the link or a screenshot to prevent flaming and trolling and even more.
As of now: Sony has not stated or confirmed anything. So either be quiet or come with some proof!
Do not post questions here.. We have a nice Q&A place for these: http://forum.xda-developers.com/xperia-sp/help
Here you can ask almost anything! Also requests and are placed here (sometimes in the apps and themes section)
Do not open any threads, guides or even collections for rooting the 4.3 update we currently have! There is no way we can root it as of now.. Please dont open the same "fake" guide for rooting the 4.3 update.
If you want to root (on lockedbootloader)
I can tell:
- Downgrade back to 4.1.2 via flashtool (see my guide in signature)
- Root it using this guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2440375
- Install CWM using this guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2649923
- Install any custom 4.3 ROM
If you have create a ftf file for flashing with Flashtool. Share it here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2311964
Be kind to share details about country, customatisation, and brand or unbranded.
