Bin4ry has made a method which takes advantage of a flaw in adb restore to allow rooting without a format or bootloader unlocking. I've tested this on my Xperia U and my Nexus 7, and both are rooted and working great.

How-To:
1.) Download attached file.
2.) Extract it using 7zip
3.) Double click the RunMe.bat and follow instructions!

Please use this version in the QR code here (v13):

There are reported issues with later versions.

If this works, please post here with results and remember to hit the thanks button for Bin4ry, and if you're feeling generous, donate!
