Four XP reinstallations later and I'm still not rooted by any of the methods posted. Having serious problems with adb denied. Adb will work from cmd manually sometimes, but will b0rk from everything else. Flashtool fails. Woe is me... Going to try one last time when I get home tonight. Might be a driver issue tho I'm not sure. Adb works fine with my SGS3. Ramble over...

I bit the bullet and used my Linux box instead. It feels good to have root...

Got My Z2 last month, my first ever android phone, been iPhone since 2007....feels gooooood.

Rooting however is another matter, major issues on mac with ./bspatch.mac issues, can't post in dev thread a sI lurk and don't talk much, so about time I started I guess.

Good Day Sir

I know, I know I should just flash a generic rom image.. I know I should just root and stick a custom on, but I have decided that the stock rom/kernel at the moment is pretty stable and TBH I thought I'd go Sony vanilla for a while. BUT with that being said has anyone (on Three UK) had a update past .55 yet or is it simply not happening? If other devices are getting 4.4.4 over the next month, it's annoying we are still stuck on 4.4.2
Phone: Sony Xperia Z2

Current ROM: Stock

Previous Phones: HTC One X.. HTC Desire.. Nokia E71.. Nokia N73.. Nokia 6680..

Not sure what 438 is but my Dixons Carphone Z2 is on 402. Not that this helps in any way...
