The steps are:
  1. Search
  2. Read
  3. Read again
  4. Search again
  5. Read some more
  6. Realise that all your questions have already been answered

There is no published exploit for newer firmware than the .532 so you will have to downgrade or root by unlocking the bootloader (this last way wwill delete your TA partition and DRM keys, so again read before going down that route)

Sony's 4.4 seems very smooth except for every so often it gets laggy for about 1/2 a second then it's all fine again, and the odd little flash of black on a screen re-draw

Thank you! Please, refresh my memory, to flash the .681 ftf I must use the flashmode, however, to flash the kernel img (681_jackie099) I should use the fastboot mode, right?

Hello "Luca_vivi" yes it is possible to root your phone, however, as suggested by "blueether" you will have to read some threads. Resuming it, it doesn't seem to be possible to root your phone without downgrading your firmware (for exemple to .532), or unlocking your bootloader first. The problem is, when unlocking the bootloader you will loose an important partition of your phone (TA partition), and without root you can't backup that partition! So, in order to do that, you have to:
1 - downgrade your firmware via flash tool;
2 - Root you phone;
3 - Backup the TA partition;
4 - Unlock the bootloader;
5 - Flash again the .681 firmware via flash tool;
6 - Flash the proposed kernel on this thread via flash tool;
7 - Installing the superuser via custom recovery;
8 - update te superuser binary if needed.

Take a look to this thread from "lordManhattan": http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2569904

Good luck!

I really really like it, but it's not as smooth as 4.3. It's not close to being bad, but I notice these tiny stutters here and there. I also feel like there's something that's draining my battery, so I'm currently looking into that. There are no major bugs or anything though, but I bet we'll get an update very soon though, since things could run a little better.

Hello! So, as far as I understand, from your point of view, for now, the .136 firmware is better?

if u've got no plans of compiling such alt versions, it would be of help if someone can help me figure how i can go about doing the same.

thnks

Enjoy it

Humm I see, I have also read that there are some issues with sd card writing, any insight about that? If I may ask, what ROM are you using on a daily base? Many thanks!

The issues with sdcard are enforced security is apps can no longer read/write to where they like without elevated permissions. Much more secure.

I'm running carbon as my daily, and will go back to slim when I can get it to build without errors and bugs.

So, as far as I understand, the suoosed write sd card "issue" is a good think? When you say "elevated permissions" I supose that the user must give some kind of authorization in some actions, is it?

All apps I've used so far have asked to move data from one spot on sd card to another (which I've allowed) then they worked ok - what sd issues are others experiencing?
