Default [Q] Sony backup service and installing rooted ftf

Quick question for using a rooted firmware. If I back-up all my data with Sonys Backup service to my sd-card, will I be able to use that app again on the rooted stock rom that I downloaded from here on XDA? All done on a locked bootloader.

Thanks in advance!

There are no rooted FTF files available. FTFs are unmodified stock firmware packages. You will find that the prerooted roms available are in zip form and require flashing via a custom recovery.

As for restoring backups made by the Sony tool, you should be able to, as long as your backup is from the same firmware version. You cannot restore backups made on 4.2.2 on a 4.3 rom, for instance.
