You should have a Recovery installed on your phone before flashing a Pre-Rooted firmware...
Use Xperia [Nut]'s Dual recovery installer for Xperia Z1: http://nut.xperia-files.com/?ql=1623...e0e18807279c4a
If the Procedure hasn't changed(Becoz its been long since I used it), It should have .bat file or some kind of command line script. Have USB debugging and unknown sources enabled on your device. Connect your phone to ur PC and execute the bat file. It should search for the device and it will install the Dual Recovery.
Then, Copy the pre-rooted firmware that you downloaded from here into your phone. Reboot your phone, while booting the notification LED will light up, and then press Volume Down/Up button, based on the recovery you want. Then, wipe system, data, cache and dalvik cache using the option like wipe/format based on the recovery you are using. Then, Choose install->search for the Pre-rooted Firmware you copied,select it and Confirm installation. Once Completed, Reboot device.
Remember That, First boot will take a long time, be patient...
Backup all data before, trying anything on XDA!!!!
I am not responsible, if you do anything wrong or something went wrong in the Procedure!!!
