Hello everyone.
I had tried to update my ZL just now.
Well, I have to say that it didn't go well.

Here's my spec:
C6502, .101 Stock
Towelroot rooted, locked(Never tried to unlock), SuperSU(OTA survival on)
NUT dual recovery
Xposed framework--uninstalled legally through installer

Here's my sits:
100% battery, .230 OTA downloaded.
Then I OTAed it.
After reboot, things looked so ordinary.
SONY logo appeared with red LED lit(Well, in fact I do not know what does it stand but I guess it's because of NUT recovery)(Thanks NUT BTW).
Then, the cute lil' Android with a rotating polygon stuff in it's belly.(I guess its a pretty normal update screen)
Suddenly, after a minute or so, my screen goes black, and refuse to respond to any hard keys.
After an hour, I force-shut down it, desperately.

I tried reboot it ten mins later, and it booted normally, nothing bad happed, except a prompt says that it failed to update.

Well, I guess that's it. I gonna try to flash it days later.
But, I know there's a lot of great people here and you all may give me some sort of information so I can realize what was really going on.
Anyway anything provided is much appreciated.
Thanks for watching this thread. Hope you all have a great day!

Yes, I am using .101 now. It seemed that the attempt to update had failed but has left no bad effects.

OTA doesn't work if you changed some system app or recovery. For me it only worked with 100% stock.

Didn't test it with a non-modified rooted stock though.

Force shutting down the device while you got this 'cute' Android thing then black screen can result a hard brick

BE VERY CAREFUL NEXT TIME

BTW flash STOCK ROM FTF file with flashtool might help you
