Unhappy [Q] How to root Xperia Z with 569 firmware and locked bootloader?

Hello,

I've got new Xperia Z with 10.4.B.0.569 firmware on it. I can't find solution to root device with locked bootloader. I can unlock bootloader then root phone, but first I would like to backup TA partition, but I can't backup this partition because phone must be rooted first! I can't flash custom recovery too because of locked bootloader.

Is any solution for this problem? Thanks for any advice!

If you want to backup your TA partition, you will have to downgrade to 4.2.2 and root.
There is currently no way to root 569 after you have flashed it without unlocking your bootloader.

Thank You for advice. Is there any difference between downgrade firmware and flashing other firmware using flashtool? I mean can I download stock, previous firmware, flash it using flashtool on device with locked bootloader?

Yes, use Flashtool to flash an earlier firmware.
