Hello, Ive just rooted my z2 with towelroot on .55 and installed the xposed framework. I received the ota update from .402, is it possible to update without losing root? Like with superSU's survival mode?
Already thank you

With OTA survival it should Survive the OTA update

Try it, if you lose root you can simply reroot easily enough

Thanks, but should I delete the xposed framework? They say that xposed framework screws the update up.

Even if you lose the root... I think root for .402 is out already.

should work regardless of the bootloader status. ie. you don't need to unlock bootloader.
