You should post this to Q&A Forum and not here
Thread on unlocking bootloader

I don't know what's up with the drm keys and how to recover or back-up them but you don't need to unlock bootloader to root your phone.Instead you can make your own .ftf file or download a pre-rooted rom from mrjraider or from any other user(eXistenZ is a good rooted rom 4.3).

There are instructions on how to do it (depending on what you're needing to).

Good luck with it!

Mods please move it to Q&A Forum.

If you have been reading much the last week or so, it is no longer necessary to unlock the BL to root (assuming you want to stay with 4.3).
It is not for the faint-hearted though, but this applies to those who unlock BL and those who mug around with the 4.3 stock FTF anyway
