Should do it. Rooting should not prevent checking for updates/receiving OTA notifications

The answer is because Bell Canada's and a few other carrier branded phones is still on 17.1.A.2.55, so PC Companion for instance would say you are up to date. As other have mentioned, use the Flashtool and flash your phone with a generic ftf which has the latest version.

I would say flash Canada generic (which I uploaded which is in the firmware sticky) as I am using the Canada firmware, then you can have the latest update of 17.1.2.A.0.314.

I have to add as well that when you flash the newest one you will gain crazy good battery life! I am on Bell Canada, and the newest firmware runs awesome!

Bell and everything is working, not rooted at the moment, though I was before flashing. I have just never unlocked.

The file ending in 314, and google flashing an ftf for the z2, that's all I did too

As I have recently found out.

The Canada Generic is actually a US Generic. Will probably have to start changing names soon to not confuse anything.
