This is a kind of one click to root experience, which uses towelroot, but patches it for the Z2 before.

Follow the instructions, and everything should be fine. I had to do it twice, as my first attempt didn't work, though.

I just rooted mine today that way

I didn't lose any data with this method.
Sony Xperia Z2 D6503 rooted
Sony Xperia S LT26i
Sony SmartBand SWR10 <-- pretty nice, not a lot of Apps though . Looking for someone, who is into hacking and/or developing for this. (PM me)

I know its a couple of extra steps but I would really recommend DooMLoRD's method over towelroot.

I went through the process last night, and made a small write up (mostly for myself as a reference later) for anyone that's interested.

EDIT: The reason I prefer this method is that you get your TA partition and DRM keys backed up as well as a custom recovery for fun later.

But isn't DoomLords method for older versions? Not for .402

Also, can I go from my now rooted device to the version of Doomlord, so if I need to reverse everything get it back
to the device that has warranty?

It's the link I posted. You do a quick downgrade (easy) then root and backup TA so you can restore for warranty. then update to 402, install custom recovery, flash doomlords adv stock kernel, and superSu and you are done.

No need to downgrade.

Just root with towelroot + easy root tool and after that backup your TA with Bachup-TA.

Than flash SuperSU and Dual Recovery.
