Hello all. Sorry for my bad english.

After upgrade my Xperia Z by PcCompanion, I lost root and xdualrecovery.
And impossible to recover (despite my extensive research on the forum and despite extensive test ).

Can you help me (step by step)
I put the picture of my situation to save time. (ATTACHED THUMBNAILS)
important: bootloader unlock allowed: No

thank you in advance.

First: please black out your IMEI in the picture
To your question: You have to downgrade to 4.2.2, download any .ftf file and root it using Doomlords easy rooting method. Install the dualrecovery and search for a pre rooted 4.3 or 4.4 rom

When I am in 4.3, i use the method flash back to 4.2 (kernel only) to root, then flash back to 4.3 (flash kernel only) follow this thread by Doomlord:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/xper...6405?nocache=1

My question is: can I use this method with stock 4.4 (locked bootloader) ? if this possible, does anyone have stock kernel only in .ftf file ?
Thank you!

You have to wipe all the data on your phone, there are 3 boxes that have to be checked in flashtool
