Just wanted to say to any users still undecided about unlocking bootlaoder and rooting

just do it

x-reality just oversaturates colours and drains battery to process every image, i find i like images with it off.
the z2 has a fantastic display and colour range without x-reality

DRM keys never used any of the sony content in my life, infact i rooted and first things i removed was sony social and 'whats new app' which just run in the background drianing battery and probably monitoring your usage to send ads...

Mirorr linking is one of those cool, but probably never use/ use once in a blue moon type feautre.

TLR

Unlock that boot loader, root it and start modifying the phone to your taste ( the main point of getting android?)
You lose nothing vital

Reading thru this thread tells me that
1. Camera is working as it should
2. Xreality works

But do these still work?
1. Gracenote? I like downloading info and album arts for my music.
2. ClearAudio+

Thread is irrelvant now

Root exploit has been found so you dont need to unlock BL anymore

however you can now back up TA.img, unlock bootloader, install a custom rom and provided you use a stock kernel you can restore your TA
