No chance that this is 4.4.3 since the Nexus images are just now hitting the servers.

Zero chance.

I also tried every available options to perform the below tasks ..

1. Root my cell.
2. Take Back-ups of my TA and DRM Keys.
3. Tried to Unlock the Bootloader. (not tried with the official Sony's method)

... but didn't succeeded in anything.

Could someone tell me if this Firmware is supposed to be like that i.e. can't perform any action or am I doing something wrong.

Regards.
You need to first unlock your bootloader (via the official Sony method).

Then you can install recovery (and root) via this method:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2702001

There is currently no way to backup your TA and DRM keys. That would require root on a locked bootloader, but there currently isn't a way to achieve root on locked bootloaders.

Thank you very much hush66 for clearing my queries. Would you suggest me to wait some time n see if in future we could find a way to gain root on a locked bootloaders for Z2 and can you please tell me why my cell is not booting into 'Recovery Mode'?

Thanks n regards.

It really depends on what you want to do with root / recovery. If what you want to do is not really essential, then just wait (like me).

Like I said, for now, you need to unlock the bootloader first before you can flash recovery. That's why you cannot boot into 'Recovery Mode' now.

Hey guys,

I was just wondering if anyone here could tell me what the official length of support for the Xperia Z line is please? Obviously I got the Z2 but after reading about Xperia and how Sony properly over the past few weeks, I see they said they are now to release a new phone/flagship every 6 months, I have a feeling I *may* have made a mistake getting this phone in that case! Unless Sony has a 18-24 month support I don't see why I should keep a phone that may be redundant in the next 10 months regardless of development support.

Thanks in advance!

Edit: Nevermind, found the answer

You can unlock your bootloader if you really need root now. For locked bootloaders, still no root exploit found but the developers are working on it.
