I'm sure you'll have root on Z2 in August.
Few devs talk about rooting KK and that they already have found root exploits but they can't publish that until August.
Check "root bounty Z1s" in Z1 general section.
I'm quite sure, once when root exploit goes out for that device, Z2 devs could use that to root Z2 LB.
The main problem, for now is that KK isn't rootable, we have to downgrade to JB, root it and then use few tricks from NUT (prerooted rom and stripped ftf (stock kernel)) on Z1.
I also plan to buy Z2 with BL status NO...
I really like Xposed and custom nav bar icons but I've got really good offer for LB device and I'll (probably) buy it...
