Dear Sony, :/ sorry for violating my self imposed embargo, someone else outed the vulnerability and build exploits (See z2 root) based on google patches before August. It was happening with or without beaups and I. Either google needs a longer embargo, or us carriers need to be faster to allow updates.

If bounty still exists, please send to, I will split with @beaups and then dispense my half to the charity of my choice. If it doesn't, I hope everyone got their money back.

donations can also be sent to, please note what they are for so i can split them with beaups

Select Code
adb push pwn /data/local/tmp/pwn

adb shell chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/pwn

adb shell /data/local/tmp/pwn
then wait until adb works agian, and then reboot

Someone else will have to setup a proper way to disable write to system, however running /system/xbin/ will disable ric and allow you to write to system until reboot. Until a better approach is setup, i suggest using some on boot app to run it as root.

You will need supersu app from the market. Dont ask me for support if you didn't follow directions, dont ask me for support unless it throws errors.
Thank you! But I must be an idiot and cant figure out how to apply it =/
