Question [Q] How to install Sony Android 4.4 on a rooted Xperia Z.

HI, I rooted my Xperia Z to 4.3 Android (Sony's version) but I can't install Sony's version of 4.4 android via Sony's PC Companion software as I have rooted the device and unlocked the bootloader.

Also, if I get 4.4 on my Xperia Z, how to root that?

Thanks

Maybe you should investigate what the latest Android version is instead of asking something that no one will be able to answer.
Link me one 4.4 topic plz.

The latest official android version for sony xperia z is 4.3, but you can download custom rom for your device, by installing clockwork mode and then flashing the rom.
You can search over for the custom recovery and how to install it and then just download your desired kitkat rom and copy it to the phone, then flash it in recovery mode.

Cheers.

I would add, and remind you, that a unlocked bootloader is required in order to install whatever cyanomodgen rom
