Hi guys, I am considering purchasing Z3C and it would be my first Sony phone, but I am hesitant because I read that in order to root it, you have to unlock its bootloader which will lead to loss of DMR keys and degrading camera output quality.
How does rooting work for Z1C? Is it possible to root without unlocking bootloader and losing DMR keys?
I'm not necessarily new to rooting I've been doing it for a year or so on my old phone. But after upgrading I decided not to root for a while. Now I think I'm ready to root and get a custom rom on. I'm not used to the whole unlocking bootloader and then a different way of rooting from my old phone. Any sort of guide with links would be greatly appreciated!
I bought a Transformer Tf700 the other day and stupid as I was ( It seems ) updated it to JB before unlocking the bootloader and rooting the device.
So I have been searching around the forums, but it seems that there is no way to actually Root a JB device that did not unlock the bootloader in beforehand.
Hey guys, i recently got a new Samsung galaxy s4 gt-i9505 and i want to root it. If so, do i need to unlock the bootloader first or do i just root my phone as is? Also can anyone link me directly to a thread where i can unlock the bootloader of my phone, thank you
I've always been curious about the way the developers/"hackers" actually root/unlock the phone. It seems that many release their rooting/bootloader unlocks but never explain how they did so. Why is that?
So I accepted the OTA a few days ago because I wasn't really considering rooting and unlocking my phone. I decided to try and root for the first time on my old GS2 and I was successful. So now that I did that I want to do it for my Note 2 but now I can't unlock the bootloader since I'm now at VRALL4. Is there a way to downgrade to VRALJB and unlock the bootloader from there? Thanks.
Ok, so I've upgraded to 4.3 and lost my root. As far as I know, to get root on 4.3 I will need unlocked bootloader to flash custom kernel and/or ROM. Unfortunately in the Service Info / Configuration of my phone it says: Bootloader unlock allowed: NO. So here's the question: is there any method of unlocking the bootloader other than official from Sony?
