Yes, you can always flash the new update. No, you don't lose "the bravia thing"

You sure? You lost it upon unlocking on the latest previous device (Xperia T). Would be cool if it didn't get lost.
And just to clear up, I don't really miss it on my unlocked T but I'm still somewhat annoyed when I see/read other peoples raving about it

xperia z
why i asked about the bravia and the updates is because i read it sumwhere that you lose them things if you unlock boot and root. ill try and find it again and post it up here. It mite have been on the sony site.

This is from sony site...............Also note that there is no turning back once you have unlocked the boot loader. You will not be able to revert the device to a locked or original state if you unlock it. In addition, if you brick the device, it is your own responsibility. Note that you will not receive any official software upgrades if you unlock your device.

all official updates will be converted into FTF files... similar to RUU files (HTC), or TAR.MD5 (Samsung)... which can be flashed on both locked and unlocked bootloader devices...

dont worry... unlocking bootloader hasnt stopped any of the users from 2011 to update to latest official software upgrade

AW: [ROOT] Xperia Z (C660x) for unlocked bootloaders ONLY! (RELEASED)
Thank you for great work!

Can I go back to 100% stock after unlocking (including Drm and bravia)? E.g. through "re-locking" or something like that?
