I am trying to root my Sony Xperia Z ( 6603 ) which is currently on Android 4.4.2 [ Built 10.5.A.0.230 ]
This is my first time rooting my device but what from I have heard, I can do it in 2 different ways.
- Downgrade to 4.2.2 [ Built 10.3.A.0.423 ] FTF File Link
- Use easy rooting method
- Unlock Bootloader ( Loose DRM Keys and Warranty, etc )
- Root the Device
I just want confirm that I might go for the 1st way.
So I simply ( back up if I want)
Copy the .ftf file I downloaded into Firmwares ( Flashtool )
*Download latest drivers?
Flash .ftf file on my device
Follow the Prompts (do the Volume key down and plug etc,)
Wait to complete
Voila! I am back to 4.2.2
Now I just follow the Easy Rooting by Doomlord
Can anybody confirm that this is the correct way? It's I'm kinda newbie to rooting
