[ how to flash this kernel ] (via fastboot)

  3. flash the boot.img using fastboot:
    Code:
    fastboot flash boot boot.img

Rooting Instructions


[ proof ]






[ how to root ]
  • once you have flashed the kernel from the 1st post
  • download the latest SuperSU update.zip from: http://download.chainfire.eu/supersu
  • save it on sdcard of device
  • reboot into recovery
  • flash the supersu update.zip
  • reboot from recovery into OS
  • you should now get proper root access!


[ installing busybox ]

  • it is highly recommended to install busybox after rooting!
  • just go to andorid play store and download the busybox installer.

Is it possible to do a TA backup of the Z2 yet since there is no root with a locked bootloader?
