No need to go back to 4.1.2. You can fully root 4.3 with this. It's 100% working for me.

Make sure you use CVE-2014-3153.

You can root jb 4.3 using towelroot. You can find more info about it somewhere here in the Xperia m forum.
Current devices:

Xperia S - CM11
Xperia M - 4.3 stock firmware

Signature in development, ETA whenever Half life 3 gets out.

 

Oh yeah, If I helped you, please just press thanks, you don't have to reply...
 

 

 

 

I told you that it still isn't finished!
