Exclamation [Q] Xperia SP Unblocking Bootloader and Rooting

Hi,

I have an Xperia SP (12.A.1.201, LOCKED bootloader). I want to root my device but rooting requires unlocked bootloader I need to preserve the DRM keys.

According to [Tutorial] Xperia SP Bootloader Unlocking/Relocking (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2354721), I need to ROOT my device first to backup the DRM keys but then as per [RECOVERY] CWM-Based Recovery 6.0.4.6 + ROOT for Xperia SP [20140528] (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=50272112), I need to UNLOCK bootloader first.

Quite confusing. What needs to be done? I need help.

I cannot lose my DRM keys.

Thanks!

You have to downgrade then root to backup the DRM keys once the 4.3 doesn't have an exploit to root
