Default [Q] Explanation needed.

Hi,
Guys I need your help to understand this whole root thing and etc.
I do have Xperia SP software version 12.1.A.1.201.
I would like to root it. But to do it I need to unlock bootloader. - Fine, can do it as my status is YES.
but I don not want to loose DRM keys.
If i understand correctly first i have to unlock bootloader and then lock it again (to keep warranty) but first I need to root my phone to keep DRM keys.
But on my software i can't first root it and then proceed with bootloader.

Is there any method to first root the device, then unlock bootloader and keep DRM keys?

Sorry if this sounds stupid but I don't know where to start with it.

Thanks

Downgrade to 4.1.2, root that FW with doomlord's method, install recovery and flash a prerooted rom. You don't need unlocked bootloader for this
