Default Root z1 compact android 4.4.2 .757 firmware without unlocking bootloader

Hi

Title says it all.
I'm on newest 757 firmware and I want to keep my warranty, no exception.
On my old Xperia S there was a '1 click root' which was basically connect to pc, install drivers and run an automated cmd. (I thought it was made by doomlord). Is there any possibility to do this on z1 compact? Or any other way?
I have used the program Vroot on my Xperia s, but not sure it will work on z1 compact.

Thanks in advance

There's 3 of these threads on page 1 of Q&A alone, never mind all the other "one click root" threads on other pages.

What about Vroot? Will it brick my phone if I use it? Any other software no-one has tried yet

When a one click solution becomes available then a thread will no doubt be made, until then you'll have to use the existing options.
