I was just looking at how to root the Z2, and I noticed that to root it, you first have to unlock the bootloader and install a custom recovery, but unlocking the bootloader removes TA keys, so you first have to back them up, but backing them up requires root access. Am I missing something here or is it impossible to keep your TA keys to root?

may be possible down the track but not possible now and highly unlikely in the near future
