Default [Q] How to root Sony Xperia Z latest 4.3 update?

Hey guys, so I updated my phone here and I'm trying to root the phone. I have search the web for question but none. So, I decided to do the old method way. Can I use the 4.2.2 (2.67).tft flash it to the phone and root it. And then flash back to the 4.3 (.569).tft. Thanks. Also please provide me with some links for the root.

Please use the search guys, this has been discussed in many threads all over here and the general section ever since 4.3 was released.
Currently, the only way to root after you have already flashed 4.3 is to unlock your bootloader and flash DooMLoRD's advanced stock kernel.
That's it, until somebody finds a way to root with a locked bootloader and that doesn't mean you have to post asking for it. Once someone has a breakthrough, they will publish their work here for certain.

If your bootloader is unlocked you can try this. It worked for me.

So, basically exactly what I already said. Flash DooMLoRD's advanced stock kernel and flash a superuser zip.

No need to give page views to yet another website that just reproduces guides/work of XDA members.
