If you're so inclined, I hear you can easily reflash stock and lock the bootloader to get it back. You can go see if you get it back when you do.

TBH, root was a bigger deal for me, lol.

EDIT:

So, I flashed the stock firmware ftf with flashtool and the bootloader is still unlocked.

From what I can tell, X-Reality is working...

I'm haven't rooted the phone again yet, but presumably if these things are working now, they would be working after root right?

Yeah, the root shouldn't mess with anything. The kernel you're installing to get the root access might though.

Yeah that might be true. At this point, I'm just rooted and x-reality is still working.

I haven't seen any options specifying bionz so someone with a locked bootloader would have to chime in

Sony's image processor for the Z2; I'm guessing in smartphones, it may just be software built into Sony's camera app.

I will have my Z2 tomorrow so I will check, but on Z1 on 4.4.2 unlocking bootloader didn't wipe DRM keys. A lot of people still sustain legends that unlocking bootloader will always wipe DRM keys forever...

OK so mine says "boot loader unlockable: no", does this mean there is no way to unlock it and root the device?
