Bootloader unlock issue for Xperia Z1 confirmed by Sony


Owners of the Sony Xperia Z1 who unlock the bootloader will discover an unfortunate side effect to doing so, the loss of their camera’s functionality. Sony has acknowledged the issue, going so far as to post a message on their unlock bootloader web site to warn individuals about the problem. A workaround does exist that involves backing up the TA partition, which holds Sony’s DRM keys, before unlocking the bootloader. If the camera is needed, users then have to go through the trouble of restoring the backup and re-locking the bootloader in the process. Hopefully Sony’s developers will have a fix for the problem in short order.
