1. He cant becouse he doesnt have TA Backup
2. You only need to have Stock Sony Kernel [4.4 Kernel] dont matter if your Bootloader is locked or unlocked.

I'm sorry, I gave you incorrect info. I forgot that flashtool can relock it without the TA backup. Doomlord has written instructions on how to do this in his tutorial thread.

More than likely I would say any moded phone unless it's returned to stock won't update ota. At least that's how it was back in my Samsung days, I haven't moded my Sony. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't be able to just flash an ftf when it's available. Someone please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong but I believe that's how it is....

If changelog is correct - there are no Tap2wake, no 4K, TimeShift and smart features - no matter how optimised it'll be without new features it's just faster JB.
We already have almost all from Z2 so once again, we'll have to rely on our brains....

Fortunately, @serajr is preparing systemUI for KK and I'm sure we will all work on porting and moving apps and features from Z2 KK.

I'm not sure I'll even flash KK.
I'm sure I won't flash it now, without root privilege...
