Default Root and Dual Recovery for Locked Bootloader

Firstly a massive thanks to RyokoN and [NUT] - much more of this is their work than mine.

The end result is unbranded UK firmware (no docomo/jp apps etc.) 14.2.A.1.114 with SuperSU and NUT's Dual Recovery. The bootloader of course remains locked.

Downloads:

http://dl.weeaboo.com/Z1Compact/C690...0Unbranded.ftf
http://dl.weeaboo.com/Z1Compact/D550...neric%20UK.ftf
http://dl.weeaboo.com/Z1Compact/SO-0...281_docomo.ftf
http://dl.weeaboo.com/Z1Compact/z1c-....flashable.zip
SuperSU flashable zip from http://download.chainfire.eu/supersu
LATEST Z1C-lockeddualrecovery flashable and installer .zip from http://nut.xperia-files.com/ (thanks to [NUT])
FlashTool: http://www.flashtool.net/index.php


Process:
  1. Copy UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.(...).zip, z1c-43-uk.system.flashable.zip and Z1C-lockeddualrecovery(...)flashable.zip to your external SD card.
  2. Take a full backup, as all phone memory INCLUDING INTERNAL SD will be wiped.
  3. Flash SO-02F_14.1.H.1.281_docomo.ftf (WIPE: select all, EXCLUDE: select none)
  4. Boot and enable USB debugging and installation of apps from unknown sources
  5. Flash C6903_14.1.G.534_ianford10_UK Unbranded.ftf (WIPE: select none, EXCLUDE: select all except system and kernel)
  6. Turn phone on (display will be blank)
  7. Run Z1C-lockeddualrecovery(...)installer.zip's install.bat, selecting option 3 (Installation on unrooted ROM).
  8. Turn phone off using the power + vol up combination.
  9. Flash D5503_14.2.A.1.114_Generic UK.ftf (WIPE: select none, EXCLUDE: select system only)
  10. Boot to philz recovery by turning phone on normally then pressing vol up after the vibrate + green LED
  11. Factory reset and clear for rom installation
  12. Flash in this order without rebooting between each:
    1. z1c-43-uk.system.flashable.zip
    2. Z1C-lockeddualrecovery(...)flashable.zip
    3. UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.(...).zip.
  13. You're done

Haven't tried that yet as I don't plan on touching the bootloader (sony stock roms are excellent imo)

No reason why it wouldn't work, unless sony has added some sort of extra protection (unlikely).

Not really sure what could cause that, are you able to connect to e.g. adb shell ok?
