Now I will ANSWER your QUESTION
1) Flash any FTF file ending in 534 (Find files and instructions in the mega collection thread in the general section)
2) Install the latest dual recovery (Find files and instructions in the XZDR dual recovery in the the cross device development section)
3) Install a pre rooted 4.4 ROM of your choice (Find files and instructions in the development section)
i have gone through your many post....first of all thanx for all the help to us noobs.
and yet again i am going to ask you the same question.
how can i root my xperia z1 c6902 it is right now on 4.4.2 14.3.A.0.757,
from what i read i understand:
i need to install 534 ftf using flashtool.
here i am worried about losing IMEI number as some users have reported i am planning to flash this ftf https://mega.co.nz/#!Oxxk1Lqb!MC-coF...BgLJNY17iQKf7o
from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...79&postcount=2
is it safe??
secondly when will i take the TA backup i read that i require root for it. so i guess after i flash 534 i do the step 2
i am going to repeat the steps given here
Make sure you have USB debugging turned ON.
download Z1-lockeddualrecovery[VERSION]-BETA.installer.zip from http://nut.xperia-files.com
unpack at C: or somewhere you will remember!
navigate to the resulting directory and look for install.bat, double click it to run;
Your phone WILL reboot when installation has completed and it will go into the default recovery for the first boot.
Reboot to system from recovery to allow the installer to clean up after installation (it is safe to skip this step).
Enjoy DUAL RECOVERY!
and finally where i am goin to flash the latest that is .757 from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2711982
i hope i wont brick my device or lose warrenty over these steps. and when do i make TA backup
thanx a lot for any help
