Hi Guys

Firstly, I apologies if this is in the wrong section ...

Now, I recently purchased a Xperia Z (my old phone was a Xperia Ray, thank god I got rid of it)

So I got the phone, plugged it into the computer to restore some backups and without thinking i accepted the update and it went ahead and done it.

Which brings me to my question, is there a root available for Xperia Z on
Android Version : 4.3
Build Number: 10.4.1.B.0.101

Preffreably one that doesn't involve downgrading as I do not want to unlock my bootloader.

Thanks for your help guys!
