An action that could put at risk the functionality of one of the main assets of this smartphone of the Japanese company, which is nothing other than its brand new c20.7 megapixel camera and 1/2: 3 inch sensor. Now, a few hours after that news, Sony officially admits the problem exists with the bootloader.

This confirms that the mistakes of functionality detected in the device camera after unlocking its bootloader They respond to some type of failure of the smartphone itself that Sony has not yet managed to locate and not a possible slippage of the members of the technological scene who may have been lucky enough to ‘mess’ with the flagship of the Japanese firm.

On the other hand and assuming that Sony developers will be working tirelessly to find the solution, the only way known so far to unlock the bootloader of the Xperia Z1 and not lose the camera in the attempt is previously back up the TA partition – where the keys are located DRM and a lot of other vital information – to be able to restore it once the unlock action has been carried out.
