well, im in india, and here, thankfully, carriers don't bother with locking bootloader and stuff.

And thanks to fatguy666. booting into fastboot mode was genius.

i booted into it and flashed kernel using flashtool.
and then phone went into recovery using normal given methods.

everything is done and dusted now. my xperia z2 is rooted! yay!


i love XDA. and thanks to fatguy

this is first time i have to post because i couldn't find any solution after two days of searching around.

I have a sony xperia Z2 (D6502) and i was trying to root that thing. i unlocked the bootloader using Sony's official guide. But i can't root it. i consulted a guide at android.gs which told me to just download superSU.zip and boot into recovery, and install zip from there.however i just can't boot into recovery.

All the guides for booting Z2 into recovery say that -
1) Switch off the phone
2) Switch on, when notification led lights up, press volume up or down a few times.

But -
when switching on, notification lights of my phone never light up.it just shows a Sony logo, followed by a Xperia Logo and boot animation.

even the adb boot recovery method does not work. phone just does a complete restart. thats it.

Do i even have a recovery installed on my phone? i got no idea.

Same here .. am too facing the same situation in India. It is not possible to go into Recovery Mode with any procedure i.e. tried Keys Combination and also through ADB method but didn't succeeded.

Is it mandatory to unlock the Bootloader before entering Recovery Mode? Please help.

Regards!

Hi all, there are a few poeple on here with the same problem. The link is for the dual recovery thread. I assume everybody is on .314 and that is what everybody has? The problem is being looked into. I'm also looking for a solution. I did have it installed before updating to .314 so I'm gonna wait till a solution is found before re-installing. Apart from clean installing .314 and re-installing dual recovery I can't think of a solution off the top of my head. I was posting back and forward with someone last night who had tried re-installing dual recovery, but to no avail. Hence the reason I'm gonna wait. Hope this helps a bit peeps

All I want is to be in recovery mode on stock fw 314.

When I turn my phone off and start it and waiting for the lightbar to show up for me to press either volume up or volume down several times to get into recovery mode, but my lightbar never light up and the sony loggo comes up and the phone starts normal.

I have also tried to go into recovery mode through my PC with USB debugging and ADB on on my phone and using an script and the phone just starts normal.

I have also tried an app called Quick Boot from Google Play but the phone starts normal.



My Phone:

Bootloader unlocked.
Rooted: Yes
FW: Stock 314. (I dont want any other than stock FW)
