Lot of people think that rooting Z1 breaks it camera and they wouldn't able to use its camera after rooting. These rumors are pointless because its only going to break if you people will try to unlock bootloader and this rooting guide will not tell you how to unlock a boot loader so its a safe rooting guide for Z1.

STEP 1

  11. No doubt Sony Xperia Z1 is one of the best smartphones at this price range. The phone has sturdier body, nice camera resolution and fabulous features. But it has few problems. Some of the sony xperia z1 problems are camera flash doesn't work efficiently in low light condition, missing cover flaps on USB port and touch screen is scratches resistant but not anti shatter film.

  13. I love this phone. It was my first phone. I remember at the beggining it was hard for me to do the whatsapp download but then I have discovered a new world. I can chat with my family abroad. And Viber is also a great app.
