Why do you first have to install a stock ftf? Why not install prerooted right away.

Update : I did not read properly. so it seems one time flashing is the case .

So, just so I understand, I will end up with a Sony Z3 Compact Tablet with 5.02 LP, rooted, but with no access to recovery?

That explains my confusion then - I kept getting recovery partition errors in Flashify.

Please help me understand:

- PRFcreator will create a flashable.zip.
- the flashable.zip is a .zip and not a signed .tft; one must flash through recovery, not flashtool.

this is where I get really lost:

- In order to install any recovery (TWRP, Clock, etc), the device must be unlocked,since you cannot install recovery on locked Xperia devices (right?).
- The only way to unlock the device is to request the unlock code from Sony which voids the DRM keys, etc.

Please help me figure this out, since I want to root my SGP611, but I don't want to lose my DRM keys.

You may want to root your device first and backup your DRM keys with giefroot and BackupTA.

Thanks for your reply. Just to clarify; I will generate a .zip file with PFRCreator that can only be flashed in recovery, correct?

Forgive the noobness: can I flash a .zip file with Flashtool?

Before i had the 4.4.4 running, rooted with the giefroot-method and i also did a ta-backup.
Now i upgraded it using the mentioned way and i do still have root - but now i cant get PS4-Remoteplay to work again.
I get a errorcode which is known to say: You rooted your device and the drm-keys are gone (88001003).
so i restored my 4.4.4 ta-backup again - but it still doesnt work.
Also the proprietary Sony-Updateprog for their pre-installed xperia software is gone.

any ideas how to fix this ?

You created the backup BEFORE opening the bootloader?
Have restored the backup after getting root on the stock firmware?
You must enter the special menu contact ( *#*#7378423#*#* , service tests, security ) , all keys should be ok

I read that some have had this error (withremote play) simply by having SuperSU or superuser installed


Edit: I tried to uninstall SuperSU from the app itself (option cleaning to reinstall after from google play) and now to open remote play does not give the error 88001003. Apparently sony detects if you have the app installed

busybox

I had the stock kitkat rom, which I rooted prior to installing a prerooted lollipop rom.
I still have root access, but I do not have busybox installed and can't seem to install it.
I get the same error message using "busybox installer" and using Stephen (Stericson's) Busybox.
Any suggestions?

You may have forgotten to install ricdefeat (download SGP621-RICDefeat.zip , unzip, run install.bat)
system r/w?

yes

Strange - i'm pretty sure it worked on 4.4.4 while i had superSU installed.
