I've been looking all over the site and have very few post about the Z1s, and I have seen no files for rooting anywhere. I've seen topic about downgrading from 4.3 to 4.2 but the ftf files in those topics are for differnt models and nothing ever mentions the Z1s. Am I screwed for rooting?

I'm not aware of any way to root. There was a thread where people were offering a few hundred dollars to anyone who can obtain root, but as far as I know no one has yet. Search for that thread and check the status

This may a shot in the dark but has anyone tried downgrading to 4.2 and rooting with backup an restore exploit..Flashtool and not flashing radio?
