DONT do that...

@gcg000 please advise anyone of the consequences of unlocking their boot loader. Simple isn't allways best.
@JackHanAnLG pleas read the stickies in the general section, all of them
If you want to keep your warranty, DRM keys, X-Reality/Bravia 2 then you have to back up your TA partition
  1. You will want to downgrade to 532
  2. Then root with the tool you tried, but option 0
  3. Backup TA
  4. Unlock BL
  5. Then Flash a boot.img with recovery
  6. Then upgrade
  7. [Then flash ROM if you want]

But please read the stickies
