Default (Help) can't root Xperia M2 (D2303)

Hi all.

I have unlocked the bootloader on my phone (official method) which caused boot loop so recovered my phone with flashtool.

I have tried all options in flashtool to root my phone but they all failed.

Has any one managed to root their M2. And if so please let me know how.

Thank you
Chris

You don't have to unlock the bootloader if you just want to root using towelroot.

Mine had a weird bootup after the successful rooting process where it played the xperia logo animation after I entered the SIM PIN, but after another reboot all was back to normal. No bootloops.
