After you root, if you download the dual-recovery installer to your PC and unzip it (look for the one that says Z2-lockeddualrecovery2.7.XXX-BETA.installer.zip), you can run the install.bat and it'll take care of the process. There's a more general thread here, but basically after it installs and boots for the first time it'll default to the PhilZ recovery where you can reboot it again to start the phone up.
Once dual recovery is installed, every time you turn the phone on after the SONY logo pops up, the LED will turn green and the phone will vibrate. When this happens, you can press VOL+ for PhilZ recovery, or VOL- for TWRP. If you do nothing during this startup phase, your phone will boot normally.
Hope that helped.
Just for heads up guys.
last night rooted my Z2 on x.402, without any problems and downgrades

Right. I think I speak for all newbies here.
Please may someone write a step by step guide to root the Z2 on 17.1.1.A.0.402 via the preferred method? I'm so confused by all these threads.
1. download this.
2. do this.
3. do that
Would be greatly appreciated!!
