The answer is yes. Rooting does not involve unlocking bootloader.

Dude, there are stickies for a reason, and a dev section. I don't want to answer the same questions again and again about root.

If you think this reply is rude, think about how you ask for things...

Then when rooted read any of the dev threads that have "Locked BL" in there title, start with 290 the upgrade to 136

Default Root 136 on 4.3?

Hi Guys.

I have rooted many phones following the instructions but somehow I am a bit scared this time.

I have the Z ultra on 4.3 with 136 firmware.

I am too confused on boot loader and stuff. I just want to root this device keeping my 4.3 (136) intact. Is there a way?

PLease help.

Thanks.
