Hi gusy, yesterday i received my vodafone Z2, 6503, DE. I succeeded in taking an backup of that TA partitions, unlocked my bootloader and had root afterwards on firmware .323.

In Detail:

->stock D6503_17.1.2.A.0.323_Vodafone DE
->root by Easy Root Kit
->TA Backup
->unlocked bootloader
->TA Recovery
->Installed Z2-lockeddualrecovery2.7.XXX-BETA.installer.zip from here :

So far so good. Stock rom with root (checked with root checker) and able to enter the recovery using quickboot
-> copied newest CM11 nightly + gapps
-> entered TWRP Recovery
-> Factory Reset (ink wipe)
-> flashed CM11

and now... not even a SONY Logo, only vibrating. Ideas? Thanks a lot!

Edit: I was able to restore the 323 FW with the flashtool and stock image. The question is... how to get CM11 now without bricking the device

You can use flashtool, but you needed before a ftf rom.

Recovering yout TA locks your bootloader again... and you can't use CM11 on locked bl keep your BL unlocked for CM, restore TA only if you need to go to stock or send phone to warranty.
