But unfortunately root is lost, and many of the people are searching ways to root their devices. Now I present you some ways to get your root your Kitkat.
Only go ahead and do the rooting if you know what you are up to. In the beginning I am going to show you the way that is hard and then the other way that I used to root my phone and is easy. Hard way is shown by the Recognized XDA Developer – DoomLord, and most people trust the tutorial including myself. Simple way is also by Recognized Developer – geohot and I tired it and it worked so again I trust him too.

Yep people, I can’t be more specific than that. Hope you will figure it out. I have not tired it but you can give a try. But why not try the simple way, who wants to try the hard way and waste the time.
There are couple of issue with the ways that I am going to show you. While personally I can conform you that it worked on my device Locked bootloader Sony Xperia Z Kitkat 4.4.2 model C6603 10.5.A.0.230 and one of my friend conformed it worked on Locked bootloader Xperia Z C6630 10.5.A.0.230, I can’t conform on any of the other devices. I don’t take any responsibility if any thing bad happens to your devices.
