Unfortunately the latest version of kingroot(v5.2.0.20170711) is not compatible with my device: xperia Z2 D6543 android 6.0.1 FW .291

Any other suggestion? Maybe I can downgrade it to an earlier version and try again?

I would not use Kingroot!

Use this instead:

Please look in Z2 forums here on XDA as well next time.

Hey fluffi, thanks for pointing out to that thread. I have actually read it before but it was not clear to me of I had to backup TA before doing that, so I gave up using that method.
But it seems then that is actually the best way to get TA recovery and root on a stock D6543 on .291.

I'm gonna give that a try and let you know how it went.

Thanks

Hey sorry for the late reply but yes I made it work but only because I wanted to install a custom rom anyways.

Check this steps. I obtained root with fully working good battery lasting custom rom:

what helped me get there:

1. install stock 5.1.1. with sony companion
2. install KingRoot and let it obtain root
3. download NUT Recovery from homepage and run the install.bat on a windows machine, select the first option (Install it on a xperia device with SuperSU)
4. grand ADB root priveliges in KingRoot (since SuperSU is not installed and I wasn't able to exchange KingRoot for SuperSU)
5. as soon as Nut Recovery is installed I was able to go into TWRP and install the ROM according to instructions in first post

Bootloader still locked =)


You can find further information in the rom's respective thread:

Hope this helps
As for your question: I never tried stock 5.1.1. With root but I suggest it will have worse battery then the linked custom rom
