If anything goes wrong steps 1-21 how do you get your phone working.
Also before rooting you say Back up your phone because it will be deleted. How do you back it up?
Also how do you reboot in step 17?
How do you factory reset?
Just follow the steps when your screen is black and plug in the usb cable.
You can flash your stock rom again in flashtool if anything goes wrong. Or just start again from step 1.
It means backup your data (internal) and should just be a notice that your data will be wiped.
You don't have to reboot in step 17 it says
Now format /system (located under Mounts & Storage) (Important: Do NOT reboot until advised so or you will have to start again)
And factory reset is done in recovery menu (it's called "wipe data/factory reset")

I don't know but maybe sony added a new partition which might block restoring DRM keys on Z1 Compact? Anybody already tried backup, unlock and restore TA partition and confirm that DRM keys and bootloader status restored?
Check here from post #97 http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...642081&page=10
Bootloader is locked again, however I don't know about DRM keys. You might want to ask the dev of TA backup about this second partition.
If you run
ls -l /dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name
it shows as FOTAkernel.
