And I bet your bootloader is not already unlocked, they do not come like that
goto service info and configuration. Post what the last line says
I bet it says
bootloader unlock allowed: yes
That means you are able to unlock it, but it is not unlocked yet
If it was unlocked it would say
Bootloader unlocked: yes
Thanks for replying
I am new to Sony phones, coming from Galaxy world !!!
here is what I get in service menu for DRM keys and Unlock bootloader (attached pics)
so this is what I understand: it is unlocked bootloader,
I can root it
I can install custom roms etc.
but incase anything goes wrong, I cannot go back and install stock rom, or downgrade from 4.3 (currently) to 4.2.2 ? and claim warranty ...
