Can anyone tell me what is the correct process for rooting my z1 compact!!
The DoomLord's guide for rooted kernel says to get a TA backup first, TA backup guide says to get a root first, zxz0O0's guide for easy root tool asks for some tr.apk...What is going on 'round here!! >_<

Its probably noobish but PLEASE if somebody knows the correct procedure by which I get a rooted phone and also I'm able to get my phone's warranty back at will, please tell me..
Thanks a loads lot...

It seemed to be working when the disaster struck...It keeps waiting for the device...I tried connecting it in mass storage and media transfer modes but of no use

EDIT:
Really sorry..forgot to install adb drivers..Rooted the fone without a hitch now..

Is everything wiped after root?
Hi Guys,

I need clarification/cofirmation here as I am in a spot of bother... Let's say that my Z1C was accidentally restored to factory settings and in the process I lost all contacts and messages.
I have now set out to try and retrieve them. After checking some software, which according to the developers, is capable of doing that it turns out that I should most certainly root the phone, otherwise the program(s) will not be able to search for this data (this information is virtually on every program's website).
Since my phone is still on warranty (and will be for some considerable time to come) I am not that eager to go all the way and unlock the bootloader. So my objective is to have root access with the bootloader locked. Now, I had a long read of the thread started by Darkimmortal on how to root Z1C without unlocking bootloader forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2634196 and before I download gigabytes and take the plunge the milion dollar question is

DO I WIPE THE WHOLE PHONE IN THIS PROCESS?

I know that in the OP it says
Quote:

Take a full backup, as all phone memory INCLUDING INTERNAL SD will be wiped.

but then we have a catch22 situation - need root to recover data, rooting will wipe all data

So basically is there a way to root the phone without loosing the data I am after?

This doesn't wipe anything.

Would the fastroot solution work for FW version 14.2.A.1.114?? I don't want to upgrade to KK and I don't know if the fastroot will work with this JB firmware.
