Hi,

I just bought my Z1 today and is ready to root it. This is my first Sony device so Im still getting used to it.

Ive read some guide on unlocking the bootloader. However Im a bit confused as to the the status "Bootloader Unlock Allowed?: Yes"

Does this mean;

1. The device can be unlocked.
2. Or the device is already unlocked.

Please clarify, thank you.

Bootloader Unlock Allowed: Yes <==> You are allowed to unlock your bootloader. Or: your bootloader is unlockable, but it isn't unlocked right now.

That means that YOU CAN unlock your bootloader. After you unlock it it will say bootloader status: rooted.
