Why do you need to load a new recovery, just for root?

For users who don't have one and I assume recovery is lost with a fresh firmware flash via FlashTool.

Yeah I took the plunge less than a week of having it

But I used Sony's website instead of FlashTool.

I had to upgrade to 314 to see if some of the problems I had with the Z2 were addressed. So far so Good, the double-tap to wake feature was spotty at best and now it works like a charm. Now to see if the proximity issue still exists...(The screen would stay off like it should on calls but the digitizer would still function!)

I'm guessing you're running the root but it's not finding adb, right?

If you don't have adb I'm sure it's on Google or these forums in hundreds of locations.

After you have it just put the contents of the root in the same directory as adb is.
