So far I've only lost root when doing a PC companion update. OTA has always retained root so far for me.

My Z is SIM free but I still have the bootloader locked!

That's the thing, if the OTA update patches the exploit used to root it then you won't be able to re root. But as Rashkae said OTA updates seem to retain root. Worst case scenario, flash back to .350 with flashtool and root again

Update has a baseband and kernel update so don't expect it to come OTA.

You lose root after updating, but the current root exploit (for locked bootloaders) still works. Just re-root after updating

So, any news from sony what's new in this update?
I assume it takes care of those sudden deaths... anything else?, cause i have this bug when i turn on the wifi, it continues to use 2g/3g network even it's connected to wifi.
It's not a big deal as i have to disable data before connecting to wifi(i'll rather have this than wifi dropouts. ), but still would like to get this fixed

Updated to .434 , I'm in Spain and OTA did'n find nothing, only with Companion.

.434 reloads again all GAPPS, Sony Boatware, Mc Affee, etc.

Same rooting files works in this one

Stamina fails again

Titanium Backup works fine, no restarts after deleting system apps

So, stamina mode bug still exist in 434? No changes with standby time @ ON/OFF?
