First of all, that's my very first post, big newbie here.

Yesterday I've done the worst mistake, I updated my Xperia ZQ (Brazil) to 4.4. EXTREME keyboard lag, weird bugs, slow notification drawer, screen lag, etc, etc. R.I.P. great phone.

How can I rollback do 4.3?
I've searched about and got really confused. They say I need to flash the 4.3, but to flash I need unlocked bootloader, but to preserve the DRM keys I need to root, but to root I need to unlock the bootloader.

I'm really confused.

My phone currect Build Number is 10.5.A.0.230, NOT rooted, NOT unlocked bootloader.

If someone can explain to me, I will apreciate a lot. If its too much trouble, dont bother gathering links, just give me the some directions, I'm quite lost.

Sorry about the bad english

you don't have to unlock bootloader to flash stock firmware. search for the required FTF and flash it

If you don't care about root, then just download flashtool and the 10.4.1.B.0.101 FTF then flash. This will take you back to 4.3 and your lag, weird bugs, and crappy performance will be resolved.
