Downgrade using Flashtool v0.9.16 to FW.534, Install DualRecovery from PC, Upgrade to Pre-Rooted .757 and follow the instruction which you will find on the thread by NUT. Done, now you are Rooted.

You have to downgrade to other firmware version and root that. Then you can update to newer firmware without losing the root. There are many tutorials for downgrade+ root on the web. Its very easy don't worry, just do step by step.

That's what you need:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2572988

Edit: At the begin of the thread you can download the DualRecovery. Its easy to install because it has an installer. Just open it and follow its instructions and then connect your phone. After installing the recovery proceed with the steps in the guide.
Tell me if you need more help.
