Default [Q] A bit confused!

It says that all questions are allowed, so here we go!
I'd like to say that I've rooted all my phones and have been rooting them since 2008 at least, so I know how to go about rooting, flashing, using recoveries etc.
However, I now have a predicament: I've upgraded my Z (SGP321) to 4.3 (10.4.B.0.569fw) and now I've learned that I cannot use Doomlord exploit anymore. So here comes the question:

Is there any intelligible way to (a) downgrade to a previous fw version that can use Doomlord exploit and thence obtain root and do all the nice thingies we do when we such privilege?
I've read some of the posts, but it is either a very complicated method or it is explained in a very confused/confusing way.

Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks

all is explained well in reply 4 of this post : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2703774, you just need to find first an older ftf (version 10.1.C.0.370 or older ) of your tabz model to downgrade if you don't have one and use the files provided in this post for upgrading http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2645094

Done! Thanks!
However now I need to install a custom recovery and hence unlock the bootloader. I will follow instructions on the Sony website, but it says that unlocking the bootloader on non-4.3 firmwares will stop camera functionality: will they be re-acquired later on with rom flashing? Or should I upgrade to a 4.3 rooted firmware and then unlock the bootloader?

PS: Done that also! Now let the fun begin!!
