Do i need a custom recovery ?? What can go wrong rooting Z2 ? And i assume i got locked bootloader from start? Regards.
you do not need a custom recovery and with root not much can go wrong,
Rooting does not affect your bootloader
rooting does however affect your warrenty, removing of root does restore the status of your warenty since the modifacations no longer exist
you do not need recovery
your bootloader is locked from being manufactured, its only unlocked if someone unlocks it which sony wouldent do as its used to monitor if someone has modified their device but root exploits is a way around this
