@pauldmps Did you try to flash custom kernel,as i know custom kernels can't be flashed on locked bootloader,so try flashing custom kernel thats how you'll know if your bootloader is unlocked for sure.

This changed in Backup TA v9.0 (2013-06-30), see changelog .

Can you make a backup with the latest version of Backup TA and PM me the ZIP? Also how did you check whether the restore with Flashtool was successful?

I'll send you the latest backup.
The old backup was made using Backup Ta v8.5
If the restore with flashtool were not been successful, my phone should've been hard-bricked. Isn't it ??

As I said earlier, I'm running JB for XperiaU which requires a custom kernel.

Can you also send me the Flashtool backup? Then I can round this up and give you my conclusion .

@pauldmps
After looking at all the backups you sent me, I have come to the following unfortunate conclusion.
Your DRM keys are gone forever and it does not matter whether you have the Flashtool backup next to the Backup TA backups.

You made the backup with Backup TA v8.5, which at that time was not compatible with the Sony Xperia U. The reason for this is that Backup TA v8.5 made a backup of /dev/block/mmcblk0p1, which is the location of the TA for Sony Xperia Z, ZL, S and some other models. The location of the TA for Sony Xperia U is /dev/block/mmcblk0p2. This means your backup is from another partition of your device and thus not restoring anything related to bootloader locking/unlocking or DRM keys. Since Backup TA v9.0 the tool searches for the TA location and thus now finds your TA to be located at /dev/block/mmcblk0p2, but since you already have unlocked your bootloader its a little late for that. Backup TA now supports the Sony Xperia U and many other models, but it was not at the time you made the backup .

Your Flashtool backup was made with the S1 backup method, which does not backup DRM keys but instead can only be used to relock your bootloader without restoring DRM keys. So all of your backups are pretty useless and will not help you in a warranty case. I am sorry for you, but there is nothing more that can be done for your device in this state.

I need a few things from you:

1. Windows version + architecture
2. Backup TA version
3. Complete output of the console/cmd when the error occurs.

Restoring your backup you will automatically relock the bootloader.
