I have a locked bootloader and the rooted 4.3 ROM. Is there a way to install this ROM and keep root?

Anything from hours to eternity... So far the update is available via PCC or SUS only, nobody knows if there will ever be an OTA.

I don't think so.

Can't wait, flashed the update manually
@ponchofiesta Doomlord has already updated his root method: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2620794 So you can re-root

Well, I unlocked the bootloader now, flashed this ROM and rooted it.

My battery life is now really bad but I think it will normalize over the next days... I hope so.

And: Is it not possible anymore to add lock screen widgets?

Question; is it natural that a generated FTF-file based on a generic NO (Norwegian) unbranded phone differs in size from the one posted by the TS?

Tried to make an FTF myself, but I see know that the file Flashtool generated is ~986MB, so ~30MB smaller than the one posted above.

It is. Look here.
Actually these are the stock files from JB, I don't know if handsets delivered with Kitkat would have other demo content (if Sony would ever ship with KK at all)
