Default [Q] restore ta with broken screen no root?

Dear xda

I need my phone to be repaired, they will not repair it is i have mij BU unlocked.


Today while in the Phonehouse (while waiting on my buddy with i-phone troubles) my xZ1 dropt, screen down on the floor.
Screen was cracked, from the right to left (down and up).
Screen is not responsing.
I have my ta bakup, and a copie of the orriginal softwhare it had when i made the backup.
I flashed stock FW only to discover/remember i have to give root rights to restore TA. I cant even unlock my screen.
does someone know a solution?

The only thing I can think of is flash kernel (like doomlord) and then restore an cwm back-up from someone with the given rootrights (for ADB I supose?) and usb-debugging on.
Will this work?
If Yes...
Is someone willing to sent me a back-up? ( is wich I can restore TA and then restore clean .534)

Please Help

My suggestion is to flash a cmw recovery so that you can use the volume keys to navigate.
Then flash a pre rooted rom and use a mouse via a usbotg cable.
Gain root, restore YOUR ta, then flash a stock ftf.

You should be able to claim on warenty then

*#*#7378423#*#*

goto service info/configuration.

It should say

bootloader unlock allowed: yes

then your bootloader is locked

if it says

bootloader unlocked: yes

then it is still unlocked.

But if flashtool says its locked, then its locked.


FYI, I returned my bootloader unlocked phone to Vodafone for a replacement screen, they just sent me a new one with no questions asked

Great buddy, everything is ok.

I returned my t-mobile xperia z with a broken backscreen, I got it back with the note they won't repair it becouse it was unlocked, and olthou sony doesn't make a fuss about it t-mobile said it wa illigal. they even said the had the right to ship it back in a way not according to the repaire terms. just becouse it was rooted still.

thanks allot for your great help, keep developing buddy...
