Hi all,
Have things changed recently or is generally rooting expected to wipe the data on the phone in the process?
I need to backup appdata from the phone that is not currently rooted (from what I can gather I need to unlock bootloader too) so it sounds like the impossible task as I would wipe the data I am after in the process.
Or have I got my wires crossed somewhere?
Thanks

It's usually unlocking the bootloader, not rooting, that wipes the phone.

Thanks Telyx, any idea if Z3+ could be rooted without unlocking bootloader? I had a mixed bag on this.
