at this moment you have to unlock your bootloader, just wait a bit longer for someone at the XDA forum release another way.

Because, There are many apps, which require root; for example.. Screencast recorder. I want to buy that app, it requires root.. I want to make my youtube videos directly recorded in phone... I really need to root.

Re: How To Root My Sony Xperia U?

just wait for alternatives on the XDA forum (without unlocking your bootloader)
