Default Root Advice

Hi All,

I'm wanting to root my Z1, problem is i'm a bit worried as I've not rooted a sony before and it appears a bit more involved than HTC / Nexus etc.

I'm on 4.4.2, bootloader is locked, phone is sim unlocked.

Can anyone recommend the best available process for this as I've seen a few possible solutions and just dont want to brick my phone !!!!

Many thanks

There is no any problem if you just follow the instructions on the specific thread, which I suppose you know which one, to root your 4.4.2 KK .757 FW.

Install DualRecovery, Flash Pre-Rooted KK by NUT. Done.

..and don't be paranoid......just flash
