Question [Q] One stop shop for rooting on 4.4.2

Hi all,

Apologies for starting a new thread, but I cant find what I am after anywhere at present.

My wife has a Xperia Z, completely stock, and just been upgraded to 4.4.2, and is now having the problems with SD Card permissions.

Is there somewhere with all the relevant info to
a) Unlock the bootloader (if required - where do I check)
b) Root the device
c) Install the correct version of CWM recovery.

Once this is done, I am happy to install the relevant bits and pieces, probably via the Xposed framework.

Thanks in anticipation

Simon
Click thanks if I helped

Hardware: Moto RAZRi
Baseband: SUNRISE_SMB_REV30_V2_R3_ENZO_1251.B_SEC
Rom: KTR 1-11
Kernel: Omar 3.0.101
Launcher: Nova

Use DropBox to upload pictures/apps etc (and we both get 250mb extra space)!

unlocking the bootloader will void the warranty
to root the device downgrade the device to 4.2 and root using easy root by doomlord using this link after that flash pre rooted 4.4.2 rom
for flashing recovery use this link just flash the recovery don't flash kernel or root as you will be rooted beforehand

Thanks for that, I am aware of the warranty issue. Is there a link for downgrading to 4.2 ??

I'm anticipating similar issues on my Motorola xt890 RAZR I when KitKat is eventually released for that
